Community Chat: Staple Accessories | Clozette

Some people underestimate the power of an accessory to complete an outfit; but fashionistas know that adding accessories to their look is an essential thing. After all, A boring plain-coloured shift dress can suddenly look glam with a bejeweled necklace and your gadget can even go matchy-matchy with your nails. 

We asked our lovely Fashion Community what their staple accessories are and here's what we found out!




"I'll never be seen without a watch - it's like there's something missing from my wrist. For most days, I'll wear my gold vintage watch and a dainty bracelet, finishing off the look with a bunch of dainty rings - in gold of course!"



"I guess mine would be matching nails with phone cover! You see I'm a blogger, and I use my phone A LOT so I usually won't and can't be seen without my phone. Thus, this is why I need my nails and phone cover to match."



"My staple accessories would have to be sunglasses. A pair of cool sunglasses does not only help me protect my eyes from the UV rays, but it also adds a cool factor to my entire outfit. Besides, sunglasses allow me to stare at people without getting caught-- and that is fun!"



"My pearl earrings, because it goes perfectly fine with any outfit that I wear--from office uniform to casuals and even to formal ensemble."



"Accessories can literally make or break a look. So when I can't decide between items to go with my outfit, my quintessential default choice is my beloved jewelled stud earrings. I love how they always add that little extra oomph to my ensemble without overpowering the look."



Known for its luxe, structured, yet earthy designs, Coach is embarking on a whimsical journey in celebration of the beautiful ‘oddness’ that’s born of American style and the attitude of New York City. Featuring original drawings by Californian artist and animator Gary Baseman, Coach's new collaboration sees a collection filled with quirky, whimsical drawings juxtaposed against Coach's streamlined design, creating a blending of worlds that is both alluring and fascinating. 

As one of today’s most prominent and multi-faceted Los Angeles-based artists. Gary Baseman's work explores the human condition and the complexity of relationships, family, and history--as seen in his early works as an illustrator for The New Yorker, Time, and Rolling Stone; and even in his designer toys, paintings, performances, videos, and photographs. 

For his collaboration with Coach, Gary Baseman introduces a series of darkly playful ‘creatures’, each developed with a story of the Coach girl in mind. The collection features bags, phone cases, necklaces, and key-rings, all inspired by quirky American sub-cultures and unexpected juxtapositions--all done with the aim of subverting the familiar.

With such a unique angle to their latest collection, we are definitely inspired by Gary Baseman and Coach's thought-provoking pieces that champion the art of expressing one's individuality, making every day a little bit more twisted.
