5 Finishing Touch Accessories To Complete Your Summer Looks
Posted on July 11 2022
Assembling the perfect outfit for any given occasion is an art all unto itself, one that requires patience, balance and a devilish eye for detail. Sometimes, all you need is a subtle tweak to get you over the line, a well-intentioned finishing touch to really inject some personality into your wardrobe. With such a diverse range of tools at your disposal, from belts to bags to caps and scarves and beyond, the real joy is in the boundless experimentation of mixing and matching accessories until you find the perfect compliments to your given look.
In our latest feature, we’re endeavouring to awaken your creative tendencies and help bring your outfits to life this summer with our stylist’s select accessories from our latest seasonal showcase.
Christian Louboutin Black Ruisbuddy Leather Messenger Bag
Mr Louboutin adds the Ruisbuddy Leather Messenger Bag into his eponymous label’s impressive accessory portfolio for their AW22 collection, allowing you to even further personalise your on-the-go experiences. And it’s the depth of choice on offer in this particular category that really gives Christian Louboutin the edge over the competition. With a diverse range of designs already fleshing out the Louboutin bag roster, ‘Ruisbuddy’ is a sort of hybridisation of a crossbody and a messenger bag, giving you the convenience and portability of the former and the ample storage space afforded by the latter.
Moncler Black Cut Cross Body Bag
As is the case with all the designs from Moncler’s ‘Matte Black’ story, our featured Cut Cross Body Bag cuts quite the figure with a chic, tonal black colour palette that gives it a sophisticated edge not normally associated with sports fashion brands. Of course, the designers have ensured that Moncler’s DNA remains very much intact with the bag’s decidedly utilitarian design being the focal point of attention. The light nylon twill for durability and weather resistance and the multiple zip compartments for extended storage are amongst the features that best exemplify its noteworthy functionality.
Valentino Garavani Black Loco Crossbody Bag
Valentino Garavani’s Loco Crossbody Bag is the perfect accompaniment to your occasionwear and ‘on-duty’ ensembles with a diminutive profile that allows it to effortlessly blend in with the rest of your outfit. The hallmarks of Valentino’s famously meticulous craftsmanship are all there in all their splendour too; the supple Italian leather and brass-finished ‘Vlogo’ clasp being chief among those. It’s the perfect finishing touch for dinner dates, formal functions and even office outfits with a luxury edge.
Casablanca Navy Blue Casa Club Nuit Silk Scarf
Casablanca’s Casa Club Nuit Silk Scarf is the perfect reminder that scarves need not only be functional to be effective. They can be a fun way to add a little character to your outfit without creating unwanted bulk or generating excess heat (which will surely prove invaluable in the summer months). Our featured style showcases all the defining hallmarks of Charaf Tajer’s Casablanca brand, namely the relaxed, easy-to-wear fabrics and exciting bursts of colour that are so central to the laidback, decadent lifestyle that the label promotes.
Balenciaga Black Rounded Logo Plaque Belt
The ‘Double B’ icon is now synonymous with the Balenciaga name and become somewhat of a trademark of their ready-to-wear collections. Their featured Rounded Logo Plaque Belt proudly displays the emblem front and centre in an accessory that is certainly not afraid to represent for its tribe. And in our collective opinion, that’s exactly what a good off-duty belt should do. Is this Balenciaga’s answer to Versace’s medusa buckle, or Hermès signature ‘H’ buckle? We’ll let you decide that one. For now, we’re content to simply enjoy the charisma and air of bravado it brings to our streetwear looks.
