The Galleria Al Maryah Island

Naturally, we’re not one to shy away from bold accessories.. in fact; it feels like now more than ever were purchasing prints, embellishments and rainbow-coloured accessories to revive our wardrobe selection. However, when it comes to the latest investment accessories of the season, opting for classic styles and timeless colours helps us ensure we’ll find endless use out of each purchase.

Marking the second day of our Abu Dhabi Summer of Style event at The Galleria, we wanted to share all things investment accessories and how to style them. The accessories we currently have our sights on (and are loading up our shopping cart with) is a mixture of bold bags from Coach to playful prints at Tory Burch.

When it comes to accessories, we have the power to take an outfit from zero to 100 in mere seconds and effortlessly. You can jazz up any look with a playful bag or flip the mood for an edgier look with a bold accessory. We’re here to tackle the biggest investment accessories to refresh your wardrobe and help out by highlighting the best summer accessories from Coach and Tory Burch to add the ultimate touch of style to your personal wardrobe.

Editor-in-Chief Alison Tay took the stage at Galleria Mall to share the most prominent trends worth investing in and how to style them.

1. Prints

Start with a neutral blouse with a little bit of texture and introduce print through trousers and a neutral bag. That would be an entry level print, which allows you to incorporate a pop of pattern to your look.

2. Denim

Denim is your best friend when it comes to experimenting with styles. Whether you pair a silk shirt to add texture or opt for a full-on floral top, pick one colour out of print and introduce an accessory that is the same colour is a seamless way to make it work. Once you have the foundation of denim, then you can take the risk.

3. Travelling tote

Whether opting for a printed skirt or a pair of clean jeans, a logo-printed tote can be the ultimate go-to bag for all of your travelling needs.

4. neutral bag

Your accessories can completely flip a look, and with a neutral bag, you have the key to the most versatile item of them all. A soft yet subtle bag can do wonders from styling it with a head-to-toe printed look or throwing it on an effortless casual look.

Accessories can be the ultimate conversation starter. Whether you’re heading out to an event or grabbing brunch with your friends, your accessories play a major role and can set the tone for the day. Especially when wearing a bag that no one else has, it could be a local designer or emerging brand that will allow your outfit to stand out from the rest.
