Style: A is for Accessories

by Emily Heitmann

It may be easy to walk into a closet and pair a classic Chanel jacket with beautifully tailored Oscar de la Renta pants. Or an Adam Lippes floral dress under that vintage Burberry coat. But what turns any look into an A-list stunner is its supporting cast of jewels, bags, shoes and so much more.

Be it for an afternoon brunch with friends or evening cocktail hour alongside colleagues, the chic asymmetric trapezoid Distorted Handbag from Acne Studios ($1,200) combines the brand’s simplistic Swedish style with a striking angular shape.

Add a bauble from one of Oscar de la Renta’s fashion jewelry lines to your trove. The pieces are moderately priced and wonderful conversation starters. The Gold-Plated Interlocked Chain Bracelet ($400) from the pre-fall 2022 collection is sprinkled in bright, multicolored stones that will dance on your wrist as you glide into the room.

Bahina (a Hindi name meaning “two sisters”) was founded in 2007 by sisters Annick Jordi and Noëlle Vieillard-Jordi. Their pieces are inspired by the duo’s travels to India. The 18K Yellow Gold Tanzanite Earrings ($2,550) are a vivid lavender hue that enhances any eye color.

In the spirit of celebrating exploration in all forms, Gucci joined forces with The North Face to create unique pieces that draw from the values of self-discovery and self-expression.
