What you choose to wear and how you decide to style them send a message to the world about you. Whether it is your decision to carry a structural bag to a meeting or wear dangling diamond earrings to a party, each of these choices are made by you and mostly depends on these three factors–culture, society or lifestyle. The outfits you wear are a potent kind of nonverbal communication that may greatly affect the image you portray.
We don’t have to convince about the power of accessories. They have the unique ability to change the perception of an outfit, making a seemingly an interesting one. They are transformative and have the ability to elevate or modify the vibe of an outfit. Accessorising with a new pair of shoes, a new watch, a new scarf, or a new hat is a simple method to give the appearance that you have a new sense of style.
Here are several labels that you may go at for inspiration or to make a final decision on your desired style. We’ve broken them down into the three biggest influences for your fashion choices to make your shopping journey a little easier.
One of the biggest influences in our style has to be culture. Where you’re from and where you’re currently living has a massive effect on how you dress.
If you find yourself influenced by your ethnic roots, we have some pretty accessories which will help you elevate your western outfit with a quick swipe of desi-ness.
Traditional & Versatile: Sun Earrings
The foundation of your ensemble covered may be all western, but it doesn’t hurt to add a little Indian aesthetic to any look. Especially when it comes in such gorgeous styles.
Jessica K’s Sun earrings steal the show at any event. These half circle pieces are covered in glittering crystals which make your ears and outfit sparkle! Their intricate design and circular shape give them a distinctly ethnic yet modern vibe–which we absolutely love!
Gold & Pretty: Bangle Bracelet
Indian women grew up surrounded by bangles–whether we spent hours playing dress up with our mother’s colourful ones or cherished our grandmother’s gold ones. So if you want to integrate this traditional Indian jewellery into your wardrobe–then this gold one by Jessica K is a modern way to do it.
This Queenie bracelet, in gold polish with tiny crystals, is the perfect accessory for any look. Wear it with bangles in one hand or let the bracelet be the centrepiece of your wrist accessories this year. This dainty bangle will soon become your favourite accessory.

The bucket bag has been handcrafted using crystals and glass beads. It has sufficient space for your basics without being so cumbersome that you have to tote it around or give it its own place.
The people you choose to spend your life with, colleagues, peers friends and family have a great impact on your way of thinking. If you find yourself surrounded by those who love fashion as much as you do, it’s inevitable that your fashion choices will become a lot more refined.

Party & Glamour: Mini Clutch
Carrying around a beautiful handbag is a surefire way to make a statement–even more so when the bag is a mini!

We’ve already covered society and culture, but did you know your fashion choices could very much dictated by your lifestyle as well? Your viewpoints in life, preferences for movies, individual styles and interests can form the very foundation of style. Clothing is an expression of your individuality, and your lifestyle would have a massive effect on the choices you make daily!

These square frames go perfectly with leather jackets, simple t-shirts and bodycon dresses. The angular frame gives them a bold, edgy look. You can instantly add a touch of cool to any outfit with these!
Versatile & Unique: Bag
It’s safe to assume that most women own at least one handbag that they never leave home without. Whether it’s a little purse or a roomy tote, carrying a bag of any kind is an absolute need. In contrast, for some, a handbag is much more than simply a pouch; it’s a proclamation.
This mini Sera Tote is a perfect accessory for any contemporary outfit with its balanced proportions and sleek, uncluttered style. There is nothing else like it on the market; both the construction and design are superb. It’s a showstopper of a piece without being so garish as to exclude daily use.
