If outfits were flowers, then accessories would be petals – the decorative element that attracts the eye. When it comes to accessorizing, influencers like Dana Hourani and Sofie Valkiers have earned their sartorial reputations by always staying a step ahead of the pack. They’re early adopters of emerging trends, first in line when it comes to items that everyone else gets waitlisted for, and eager to experiment when it comes to all things eccentric and eye-catching.
This week’s installment of The A-List contains striking, outside-the-box accessories that make a clear style statement. From embellished cowboy boots and “alien” sunglasses to a crocodile bag adorned with a gleaming eye, these are the six most head-turning accessories debuted by influencers last week.
Gigi Hadid’s head-to-toe monochrome look starts with a spectacular pair of unusual sunglasses by Vera Wang.
Sofie Valkiers premiered a perfect, snuggly look for those overcast winter days, complete with a cool bag that can be worn as a bracelet.
Caro Dau made a strong case for pairing a classic trench with ultra-glamorous accessories, like a covetable pair of earrings by Oscar de la Renta.
Kate Bosworth liked her airport/travel ensemble so much that she posted it thrice, just in case we needed a triple dose of awesome style.
Dana Hourani’s penchant for unusual eyewear silhouettes introduced us to the designs of George Keburia for the first time.
Pernille Teisbaek may have found the coolest bag of the season. The utter coolness of the Mulberry ‘Brimley’ makes a (strong) case for the comeback of the Mulberry “It” bag.
