Statement pieces – the name itself gives the purpose it is supposed to serve. The sole objective of statement pieces is to make you stand out from the rest of the crowd. It is supposed to make a statement of who you are as a person, your character, personality, style, and taste. These pieces make people stop and stare at a beautiful yet subtle reflection of who you are as a person within. Fashion has its rules, though not justiciable by courts, we are obliged to follow them.

It instantly catches the eye of the onlooker, and watches should be firmly thrust on your statement piece, making it difficult for them to divert their attention elsewhere. After all, there is nothing wrong if someone cannot make eye-eye contact with you if their attention is distracted by something pretty you are wearing. It is a mission accomplished then, right? If you choose your accessories to be your statement piece, then ensure that your clothes and makeup do not overpower them.

There was a time when packs were used for carrying stuff. But times have changed, and they have become as important a fashion accessory as shoes and any other accessories. The shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns in which bags come these days fascinate me. Sling bags, round bags, micro bags, leather bags, fancy clutches, etc., you can choose your desired pack depending on whether you want your look to be elegant, funky, fun, or chic. Also, do not forget to mute the other elements of your outfit to make the bag stand out.

Go for belts that have the company’s logo or initials beautifully embellished on them. A straightforward example is the timeless GG buckle belt. Adorn neutral or monochromatic shades of clothing and amp up your ensemble with a contrasting yet well-complimenting belt.
