Update Your Work Wardrobe With 3 Accessories

Spruce up your workwear with an interesting earring here and a grownup hair accessory there.



It’s that time of year again in the UAE – everyone is starting to return to the desert after the summer holidays, getting ready for all the back-to-school madness and back to routine. This is also a great time to update your work wardrobe with a few key accessory trends. Here’s our pick of the hottest AW18 looks for less:

Asymmetrical Earrings

Ears are definitely still making a statement, with everyone from Alexander McQueen to Chanel, House of Holland and Balenciaga all over this trend. Don’t be scared of rocking a statement asymmetrical look – just keep your neckline and hair simple to avoid going to OTT.

Pearls and Ornate Trinkets

Think family heirlooms, precious jewellery and prized keepsakes all brought together and stacked for an eclectic look. In other words, a modern take on the treasure chest. Dig out your granny’s pearls because these are set to be huge for AW18

Hair Clips

No, we’re not suggesting you raid your daughter’s accessories drawer (unless her collection is AW18 trend-worthy, of course!). Nineties hair is alive and well in 2018, with influencers bringing back the hair clip with a “cool girl” seal of approval. A subtle hair accessory like a pretty, ornate jeweled comb or even a butterfly clip will instantly transform your hair and make it appear more interesting and styled. Think demure and ladylike styling for your crown, as seen on Alexa Chung.
