Rings and Things: The Power Clutch
No offense to neutrals, but when was the last time a beige bag sparked a conversation about style? Now, a multi-coloured statement piece might not come to mind when you think of a go-with-everything purse, but a beaded clutch oozing with exotic charm goes with more than you might think—and will get people talking to boot.
This season, “more is more” fashion is giving minimalism a run for its money, meaning you can go all out when accessorizing your summer looks. No doubt an embellished bag that’s chock-a-block with colour will brighten up those soft, tone-on-tone ensembles. Paired with classic, large-scale prints like stripes and polka dots, it’s also the perfect way to level up your mix-and-match prints. And you can always coordinate your jewelry and shoes to complement this eye catcher while adding more colour to your sunny-weather style.
Make maximalism your MO when it comes to finishing off your look by piling on beaded bracelets, wood bangles and hand chains worthy of a far-flung bazaar. Just don’t be surprised when people start pegging you for a jet setter, and prepare yourself for plenty of conversations beginning with, “Where in the world did you get those?”
