Trending Now: Downtown Girl & David Yurman Stax by Annabelle Fleur of The VivaLuxury
November 16, 2016
I’ve always believed in the power of accessories, which is probably why they’re the inspiration behind my outfits the majority of the time. Though many people add accessories to complete a look, I prefer to reverse the process—I start by choosing an accessory, and then build an outfit around it.
Why are accessories so important in my opinion? Well, I think it’s because accessories are often the focal point of a look. They are the finishing touch that gives an outfit it’s look and feel—accessories can easily make or break a look.
You can have the most perfect jacket, skirt, or pair of jeans, but paired with wrong accessories, the look just won’t have the same appeal. However, the right kind of accessory can elevate a look to a whole new level and transform a simple look into a stylish ensemble.
Today’s look began with two new favorites from David Yurman’s Stax Collection I picked up at Neiman Marcus recently. Because I am such a huge fan of David Yurman jewelry, I can never pass up on an opportunity to add a few more pieces to my ever-expending collection.
Neiman Marcus is usually my first stop because they have the most wonderful selection and exclusive pieces—some of which are not available in other stores—like the Silver Ice Stax Collection pieces I am sporting in today’s look.
I fell in love with these pieces the moment I saw them! Available exclusively at Neiman Marcus, these pieces are sleek, sophisticated, and modern. I absolutely adore how versatile they are. You can style them with the simplest of looks, but they certainly pair beautifully with more sophisticated pieces as well.
When I began styling this particular outfit, I really wanted it to reflect the contemporary elegance of these pieces. This is why I chose to combine effortless, classically elegant pieces like a double-breasted coat and a top-handle structured satchel bag with casual basics like boyfriend jeans and a simple cotton turtleneck.
What about you guys, do you also believe that accessories have the ultimate power?
