Accessory Tips for Every Corporate Woman

There are just some things a girl can't do without, but when you are accessorizing in the corporate world, what you choose can project the perfect image or the wrong one. The good news is what's acceptable has become more flexible and a lot more colorful.
Bridgette Kirk, creative director of personal fashion consultancy The Style Agency says the biggest change we have seen with corporate women's accessories is variety and accessibility. "Women are not just wearing your classic black pumps with a black leather handbag, but they are branching out by adding color," Ms Kirk says.
But corporate style adviser Cosimina Nesci warns: “If used properly accessories can add to your personality or make you stand out for the wrong reasons." That's why it is important to choose carefully and consider what message you are sending.

The six rules of accessorizing

  1. Accessories are a great way to show others that you have a polished complete look. If used correctly they allow one to show individuality while still looking appropriately dressed for the job.
  2. Remember you need to be seen and remembered for your expertise not what you are wearing.
  3. Get the best quality you can buy.
  4. Accessories should be timeless and should not reflect fashion trends – unless you are in the fashion or creative industry.
  5. Accessories should not overpower you but instead add to your professional image.
  6. The accessories you wear to work are not the same ones you wear on a Saturday night.

In Fashion - Fall 2012 Top Accessory Trends

Go big and go bold. That's the style message for best fashion accessories this fall. And yes, you can pile them all on at the same time -- the more the merrier. From chunky bangles to layers of necklaces, jeweled brooches, lots of booties and luxury handbags, the extras this season are statement makers and sure to make anything you wear much more special. Here are a few of the best extras:
--The structured handbag. The lady-like looks are back in modern shapes, such as trapezoid totes, cross-body bags, portfolio envelopes and clutches in exotic skins. For even more fun, check out a vivid color-blocked handbag or add a handbag covered with fur.

--Medieval-inspired jewelry. Think Gothic with a metallic twist. Coiling serpentine drop earrings and bracelets are two of the newest looks for fall. Chain metal bib necklaces in brushed silver and burnished black are other favorites of this tough, chic trend.

--Bright gemstones. Rubies. Emeralds. Sapphires. Oh, my! The more colorful the better. Wear them clustered, all together, in choker necklaces, large brooches or chunky cuffs.

--Sculptured rings. The big cocktail ring has grown up into a piece of art. The newest rings take on an artistic flair in icy crystals or molten metals.

--The embellished shoe. Perhaps one of the season's most exciting buys and one of the fastest ways to make old clothes look and feel new. Whether it's a pair of embroidered tuxedo slippers or a textured metallic high heel, the shoes are stunners this fall.

--The leather or suede boot. What's a fall wardrobe without at least one pair of boots?

--Colorful tights. Still love to live in an all black wardrobe? Never fear. Inject some color into your ensembles with a pair of opaque tights in cobalt blue, fiery red or emerald green.

--Short gloves. With all the lady-like handbags and shoes out there this fall, it doesn't come as a surprise that short, wrist-style gloves are back in a big way. Check them out in bold colors or classic black and white leather. Tres chic.

Philips Citiscape - Street-Style Inspired Headphones

Inspiration comes from everything, in every form. Sometimes, it can come from across the globe—from the streets of New York to Tokyo and Paris. And according to Philips Consumer Lifestyle, the music-loving fashion junkie can get a taste of the world’s most loved urban cultures with the Philips CitiScape headphones collection.
If you’re inspired by urban adventures that only the concrete jungle of New York City can give, Philips promises that the Philips CitiScape Downtown headphones will allow you to experience NYC wherever you may be. “The Downtown gives just the right touch of the smart-casual street style that New York is known for,” says Franco Flameno, Business Development Manager for Lifestyle Entertainment, Philips Consumer Lifestyle Philippines.

The Downtown comes in a sleek and sophisticated design that you can easily match with free-flowing dresses, jeans or even boots, making these headphones truly quite fashionable. And best of all, says Flameno, the audio quality of the Downtown is what makes it a must-have.
“Finely tuned 40mm drivers deliver clear, natural and balanced sound. That kind of audio quality for its market is hard to top,” he explains. A built-in microphone allows you to switch from your music to your phone calls easily, while its MusicSeal feature allows you to immerse yourself in the city’s sights while keeping the noise away from your music.

Similarly, the Philips CitiScape Uptown “packs a mean punch with high precision sound,” says Flameno, with memory foam cushions that assure a comfortable fit and long-time listening every time. The Uptown is also equipped with MusicSeal that lets you keep every beat of your music to yourself. Furthermore, the Uptown, inspired by classy and savvy urbanites, sports an anti-tangle cable and air-quilted headband.
From America to Europe, the CitiScape collection channels romance and chic Parisian fashion with the Philips CitiScape St. Germain. This set of headphones sets itself apart from the collection nicely as they are in-ear headphones inspired by Paris’ boho charm.

Flameno describes the St. Germain as “funky and elegant,” and explains that it is designed to give total comfort while producing soft and natural sound. The St. Germain may not come in full headband headphones form, but it still does a pretty good job of keeping the noise out with its noise isolating ear caps. Pair the St. Germain with casual summer boho outfits such as long loose skirts, crop tops and sassy sandals to represent what Paris is all about.

Of course, Asian cities can never be bumped off the list of the most influential street cultures, and one of the best examples is Japan. The Land of the Rising Sun comes alive in the Philips CitiScape Shibuya, on-ear headphones that are lightweight, breathable, and inspired from Japanese pop culture. “You can strut in style with these headphones, while blocking out unwanted noise with its auto-fitting noise isolating cushions,” says Flameno.
Walk around wearing the Shibuya while expressing your own personal style, with vintage items, leather jackets, or if you’re feeling bold, dress up like a cosplayer to seal the deal.

With these fashionable yet high quality headphones, Philips is at the forefront of the headphone market as it continues to bring meaningful innovations to improve people’s lives.

Stand Out from the Crowd with Feather Accessories

While birds of a feather may flock together, one Boulder-based jewelry designer is making feathered accessories that’ll make you stand out from the crowd. Liliana Aguilar, who started an Etsy shop called Plooms, has always had a passion for creating handmade accessories. And when she came across a pair of feather earrings at a local store, she was inspired to create her own. “I was stunned at how gorgeous the feathers were,” she says. “At that point I realized I wanted to share my own version of this creation. I started using very simple feathers and later moved on to using different exotic feathers. I loved how each pair presented its own design and came to life like two little birds.”
Aguilar finds that the natural beauty of feathers translates well into her pieces and the people who wear them. While she started out making just earrings, her designs have quickly blossomed into necklaces, hair clips and other miscellaneous accessories. “Soon after I discovered feathers, I discovered the art of fabric folding known as Kanzashi,” she says. “The fabric folding style is a traditional Japanese technique that is used to create hair ornaments. I immediately personalized the art form and created a fresh new line of hair accessories and necklaces. I love how the style can be versatile so that I can create something whimsical and fun or design something sleek and classy – something to wear for a night out or to wear for your wedding.”

She likes to play around with different color combinations – some items are rainbow colored and eccentric – but she also creates neutral-colored designs that can go along amazingly with any outfit. “Plooms accessories are perfect for jazzing up outfits because they are all so individual that I can honestly say you won’t find my kind of work anywhere else,” she says. “I love to see my feather earrings worn with summer dresses, jean shorts and beach wear. My feather fascinators and Kanzashi jewelry look amazing with winter wear and fall-time outfits.”

In addition to being inspired by the birds themselves, Aguilar also finds inspiration from the would-be wearers of her designs. “I’m inspired by all the pretty faces in public,” she says. “Sometimes I spot girls in public with a pretty hairstyle, hair color or a gorgeous outfit. From that point on, I’m able to come up with Fashion accessories.” By opening her Plooms Etsy shop, Aguilar has found a way to go wild with her newfound creativity while also being able to circulate her designs. “Colorado itself is so beautiful and so unique that it deserves to have a fashion scene to match it,” she says. “Plooms defines my fashion identity, and it allows me to integrate my creative ideas into this wonderful environment.”

Iced Bra Launched by Triumph

A bra with built-in ice packs, a wind chime and a sprig of mint that was unveiled in Japan on Wednesday is promising to keep women cool this summer. In a nearly-naked publicity stunt, underwear firm Triumph Japan had models parading around showing off its "Super Cool Bra", featuring what appears to be a pair of small fish tanks encompassing the breasts. 
These cups are filled with a gel that remains soft and supple even when frozen, giving the wearer "a cool sensation against her skin", the company said in a statement. A traditional Japanese wind chime -- and a mint leaf -- dangle between the cups giving an impression of cooling "by way of its refreshing fragrance and sound".
The company, which has a long tradition of novelty launches that are never made available for public sale, said it conceived of the bra in response to a need to save energy during the hot summer. With no working nuclear reactors amid heightened public mistrust over atomic power in post-Fukushima Japan, the country has once again begun its "Cool Biz" campaign, urging people to dress down for work and avoid the need to crank up the aircon.

Exotic Accessories Perfect with Upscale Style

Fashion moves in waves, and in today’s easier, unfussy stage, glitz and gold might seem over the top. But boring isn’t the only way to do a pared-down look. Exotic skins — and many more faux exotic skins — can bridge the gap between too much and not enough. Choices go from neon-embossed leathers that mimic python and ostrich to rare and very expensive tree frog skin. It’s mostly accessories, but there are a lot of skin-inspired printed fabrics out there, too.
People are drawn to the look because it’s “discreet luxury,” says Colleen Sherin, senior fashion director at Saks Fifth Avenue. She sees consumers pulling back from ostentatious embellishment in favor of pieces with a longer life, and that goes for the wealthy, too. “If we’re talking about the real thing, they’re investment pieces. You buy them for quality and longevity — a croc, alligator or ostrich shoe or bag — you’ll truly have it forever, and you’ll be able to pass it down to your children, nieces and nephews. Even the rich are thoughtful about how they spend their money,” Sherin says.

And for those who cannot afford the real thing, the mimicking leathers and quite-sexy prints are good stand-ins, she says. “It’s a trend because it’s available to everyone,” she says. In its May issue, Harper’s Bazaar features Penelope Cruz in a croc-embroidered gown and croc sandals by Givenchy; Salvatore Ferragamo’s emerald croc beauty case; croc boots from Calvin Klein; and a Reed Krakoff croc luggage piece.

Yes, exotic skins and their less expensive cousins are widely available, agrees Jana Matheson, creative director of Judith Leiber, but it’s still an “insider” look, which, of course, seems to make it all the more desirable. The leather bags at Leiber run $195-$795, while genuine skins can cost several thousands of dollars. “Exotics are a secret luxury. It’s an insider club,” she says. “If you understand skins and know what you’re buying, you don’t have to show off. If you have a brown, beaten-up piece of luggage that happens to be croc, an innocent bystander wouldn’t know it, but you would — and your friends might.”

Some of the most exotic exotics she’s worked with include tegus lizards, stingrays, tree snakes and frogs, which, she explains, are so small they’re used for small pieces and even then they need to be pieced together. “They are pretty inconvenient,” she says. Matheson says there isn’t a single customer for the look because there is so much variety: suitcases, evening bags, belts and shoes. You can have any color of the rainbow, turn them metallic, paint them or bleach them so there are no natural markings, just the texture.

So far the only thing she hasn’t figured out how to do is get crystals to adhere to the bumpy surface. California-based designer Heather Belle made it a mission to craft leather versions of exotic skins not because she was taking an environmental position, she says, but because the faux versions look as good as the real thing — for a much lower cost.

She’s also working with a plastic that’s almost like a galvanized rubber. “My background as artist and painter has allowed us to develop a handcrafted replica without destroying or killing animals. I’m not maligning those who do, but we have a choice and that choice is of the highest quality and standards at a better price,” Belle says. She adds, “I love this process. ... I’m playing with recreating elephant skin right now, but it’s hard getting the painting process down to create something really luxurious and beautiful.”

Skins and skinlike leathers take color so well, allowing people to participate in the season’s other big trends: big, bold, bright and neon hues. The trend in handbags has been clean, simple silhouettes, but now there’s a bit of a backlash, says Shelby Kruzhkov, director of merchandising for handbags and small leather goods for retailer Henri Bendel. “I think we’re eventually going toward embellishment again, but now, in the interim, interesting materials have become the most important thing.”

Bendel’s uses mostly lookalike leathers because they mimic the real thing so well while keeping down costs. The embossed versions of ostrich and stingray look “very luxe and classy” and instantly elevate an otherwise simple outfit, Kruzhkov says, while snake, croc and lizard skins can easily be incorporated into a 24-hour wardrobe, from day to night. The wearer can treat them as a seasonless “basic,” even though they are eye-catching and fashion-forward, she says. Clutch handbags are probably the most popular “exotics” accessory, but a satchel, suitcase or tiny evening bag are popular, too.

Leiber’s Matheson suggests a fold-over lunch-bag style, while Saks’ Sherin says a belt is a good baby step into the look. Or, she adds, a silk blouse covered in a skin pattern can go under almost any jacket or blazer. She says she likes seeing this creative evolution of a classic; it makes for “wise shopping” as a trend now and closet workhorse later. Her own brown crocodile suitcase — which belonged to her grandmother — still gets regular use. Matheson gets good stories out of her exotic-skin pieces, too. People always ask questions and offer compliments. “There’s the fantasy of where you can go with these or where you’ve been,” she says. “Skins just say ‘adventure.’”

Quirky Bows Trend by a British-Filipina Designer

Fashion Accessories created by a British-Filipina designer are becoming popular among trendsetters in music and fashion circles, including stylists, celebrities and rising pop stars. The aptly named BOW label is an independent fashion enterprise providing bespoke and ready-to-wear accessories with bows, created by self-taught designer Davy Limliman Vallecer. Handmade from carefully sourced materials from around the world, the wide range of bow items extends from neckties and headwear to rings and necklaces, as well as special pieces for home furnishing.
“The beauty of BOW is that it covers all generations - male, female, kids, pets, and decorations for their home. It can be for anyone and anything. It’s just a matter of imagining it, and I create it,” said Vallecer, who has been customizing and creating her own clothes for many years. “If you can think of it, if you can dream it, I’ll make it happen. Because in terms of fashion, everyone is different. People try to follow fashion, but I want to contradict that and encourage people to be different, to be yourself - don’t be afraid to be yourself. A lot of my stuff are for trendsetters who know their style and are not afraid to show it off.”

Since its launch in 2008, BOW has been slowly getting a strong following from the creative scene in London. The label has been featured in a number of fashion shows, press reports, photo shoots, and music videos. British R&B star Labrinth, known for his typical dapper style, has been spotted with BOW creations at music industry events. Upcoming female vocalists Raychel and Mercedes have also been sporting BOW in recent pictorials. Rising British Filipina singer Jaynee, picture above, also supports the label, proudly wearing her favorite bows at live performances and appearances, including a large headpiece inspired by the colors of the Philippine flag.

Some of the bows have also been showcased at the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham, one of the biggest fashion events in the UK. Vallecer makes every bow creation herself, from finding the best fabrics to designing every minute detail based on the personal tastes and style of the client. “I could be walking in the streets and see a wrapper on the floor and the color from that could spark anything off in my head,” she shared.

“I usually make stuff at home or on the move, like on the train or on the bus, which tends to get attention from people. Some people will ask me what I’m doing, and it’s another promotional thing because I can give out my card and explain to people what I do. It’s something for people to look at whilst they’re travelling if they get a bit bored.” “I was bored. I was job hunting because I was jobless. So I was just fiddling with stuff at home because I collect buttons, fabrics and stuff just in case. I started messing around and it turned into a bow, so I started making stuff for myself. Then word spread around, and through contacts I started selling at boutiques and online. It just kind of spiraled out of control," she said.

A gradate of business and marketing from the University of Greenwich, the creative entrepreneur understands the value of promotion and networking in any project. “Marketing is everywhere, especially with social media and blogging, just telling people about what you do. From a marketing perspective, where I come from, it’s helped me to build business and create more business.” Yet despite the rising popularity of her designs, the 34-year-old fashionista remains conservative and down-to-earth in her approach to the business.

“It’s not a money-making thing for me. I do it purely because it makes me happy. I don’t set an expectation for it. I do it because I love doing it. And I love the challenge that I get from customers when they say ‘I have this event and I want a bow to match it’. It keeps me on my toes because I can’t make the same thing over and over again,” she revealed. In addition to BOW, Vallecer keeps herself busy with her freelance work as a shoe consultant, as well as running a series of popular Zumba classes with her sister.

“Life is short. At the end of the day, I don’t want to look back and wonder what I did with my life. I want to look back and say that I’ve achieved this, I’ve met these people, I’ve made these people happy - that’s it for me. But I think it works for everyone. If you do something in life and it makes you happy, keep doing it.”

Bikini Sari - Latest Holiday Fashion Accessory

The holiday season is round the corner and you don't know what to pack? Designers suggest jazzing up the resort wardrobe with accessories or going for innovative garments like the bikini sari and bright color kaftans teamed with studded footwear.Resort wear is not just about the sarong, shorts, t-shirt and wraparound. Fabrics also make a difference like the silk chiffon, crepe and silk Lycra while lazing around during holidays.
"Don't try to go overboard with your oomph quotient while holidaying and opt for breezy silhouettes. Go for bright colours that cut strategically on the body," he added. Shivan said: "A swimsuit, sarong, trapeze linen shirt and the bikini sari are perfect whether you are spending your time on a beach or in a bar." Cruise wear got prominence on the ramp at the last edition of the Lakme Fashion Week when models hit the ramp in outfits with tribal and digital prints, bohemian style jumpsuits, rompers and short dresses with multiple buttons.

Designer Jatin Varma says the kaftan and sarong may be a must-have for girls who don't want to experiment with their looks, but one can add spark to looks by styling with funky accessories like chunky neck-pieces, elegant hats, chic hairbands, scarves and metallic chappals. There are options aplenty. "Yes, there are girls who believe they have limited option when it comes to resort wear, but one needs to learn how to style up the evergreen kaftans and sarongs in different and new ways," Varma said.

"One can team up bright coloured kaftans with trendy accessories. Also, bling shorts with a cotton top and short length kaftans with a pair of bling shorts can add volume to the entire personality." For many style divas, designs and cuts are important but they should emphasize on accessories too. "Selection of the right accessory is the key to boosting holiday wear and one can jazz it up by going for flower-butterfly clips, hairbands, big sunglasses or aviators and metallic hue chappals," said Puri.

"Accessories play a major role in enhancing the look. Go for oversize sunglasses, hats, neon neck-pieces and chunky metallic bracelets and colour blocked wedge sandals as they spice up the look and set you apart from the rest," said designer Archana Kochhar. Designer Pria Kataaria Puri said, "Breezy semi fluid fabrics such as silk chiffon, crepes and silk Lycra in hues like bright orange, tangerine, sunshine yellow, apple green, candyfloss pink and off white are perfect for the cruise line."

Emo Steel Fashion Jewelry

Some people find it hard to accessorize simply because they are allergic to the materials used in fashion jewelries. But more often than not, some pieces in your closet call for a necklace or anything that will actually make you more eye catching. So what to do? Invest on something that will give you the look without sacrificing your skin condition, and by that you need to find something that is a real steal. Thankfully, EMO Jewelry provides that-real steel, that is (pun intended). Get the brightness of white gold, the shine of silver, all in a tougher package that will promise to give you a more fashionable look.
Contrary to popular belief, the kind of stainless steel used in EMO Stainless steel jewelry is not the same kind used for spoons and forks. Rather, medical grade stainless steel is used, the kind you find in surgical blades, and in body bone implants, hence it being high hypoallergenic. Stainless steel is also much much harder than most metals used for jewelry such as gold, silver and even platinum, which is why stainless steel retains that high polished luster as compared to say silver or white gold that gets dulled the more you wear it.

EMO jewelry is the accessory of choice for the new generation. It will never tarnish like silver and is a naturally whiter metal as compared to white gold. EMO offers a dazzling array of different styles and designs to suit today's modern women, with pieces ranging from everyday wear to look-at-me attention grabbers. We also offer a dazzling array of styles that have the look and more importantly feel of real jewelry, which is a far cry from the cheap and obvious costume jewelry. From anklets to right hand rings, EMO has got it all.

Teen Jewelry Designer Recycles Macs into Fashion Accessories

Apple Mac computers make a fashion statement all on their own, and Taylor Burghard’s jewelry takes that a step further by letting you show off your tech flair with style. Her Fashion Jewelry stands on its own despite the fact that she’s only 13 years old — a fact that’s easy to overlook thanks to her eye for design and business savvy.

She launched her company, TekChick Designs, after friends and other people started asking about her earrings and necklaces. Her company isn’t quite a year old yet, but she already has distribution deals for her growing product lineup, and doesn’t have any problems handling negotiations.
Along with her standard earrings, necklaces and keychains, her company also offers custom designs from shopper requests.

“People like the messages on my earrings,” she said. “The holiday designs were really popular presents.”

While Taylor may not be old enough to drive, she isn’t sitting still, and neither is her business. TekChick Designs is exhibiting at CES this week, and will be at Macworld | iWorld Expo, too. Her designs are available through the TekChick Designs website, Dr. Bott, other independent retailers — and probably at a store near you soon, too.
