Using an accessory as a focal point can be beneficial when it comes to creating different looks. Create multiple styles of outfits with this peacock hard case clutch.
Accessories possess a world of power. They can compliment an outfit, make certain elements of an ensemble pop more effectively, and they have the power to steal the show if desired. An entire outfit or look can be altered with the use of accessories, whether you are using jewelry, shoes, scarves, hair accessories, hats, purses, or any other number or combination of items to complete your look. Fashion accessories are a lot of fun as well, you can choose to use the piece to make a statement, use it to inspire the look and color scheme of your look, or use it to invoke a certain feel to your outfit. This can do any of these aforementioned things and do so with class.
The peacock motif itself is fabulously vintage. It hearkens back to the speakeasy and underground club scene of the roaring 20’s and adds a hint of this old school glamor no matter what you’re wearing. Using this clutch as a focal point of inspiration for a formal outfit seems the most logical. Depending on the color of bag you choose, gold, silver or black, you can match it with a metallic or sequined dress. Or you can simply use it to accent a vintage styled or retro find dress in most colors, though jewel-tones work particularly well (especially those found in a peacock’s feathers, such as teal, deep blue and purple). Use rhinestone studded cocktail jewelry to complement this clutch and further push that romantic vintage feel.
Another way to use this piece is to do so in stark contrast. Pair this clutch with a sleek, modern dress in a simplistic color or in a bright and bold statement color like radiant orchid. This way, the bag will stand out and make a statement that offsets the dress in both style and design while complimenting it at the same time. The contrast in the material of the dress, whether it’s satin or any other dress that offers a sleek silhouette, and the textured surface of this hard box clutch, from its grid like rhinestone insets to its large peacock motif closure. When worn in this style, the peacock closure can make a larger impact, standing out against the smooth material of your ensemble.
There are plenty of ways to manipulate a statement piece to create multiple looks. Mix and match, experiment and see what works. You never know what combinations may work out for you and make your next signature style.
Holiday parties are right around the corner! The question is, what to wear to all the fancy shindigs around town? There are as many reasons to get dressed up as there are outfits to wear! It is very easy to stray from looking classy and festive to a completely hot mess. Here are a few ideas to help you look your best this holiday season.
A slim fitting knee length jewel toned dress with a v-neck collar and three quarter inch sleeves is very sleek, stylish and classy. It combines sexy with just the right amount of conservatism. Wear with a gold or silver pendant and accent with bangles of the same color. Or skip the bangles and carry a metallic clutch with a rhinestone clasp.
Sleeveless white satin dresses are reminiscent of crystalline snow, so they are perfect for holidays. Strap on silver heels and carry a silver clutch. Forego any jewelry and let your hair loose. Keep your makeup natural except for a swipe of bright red lipstick for a true snow queen look!
Nothing says holidays like sparkle and glitter, so why not go all out with them? You can wear a gold sequined tube dress with nude stockings and flesh or gold toned heels. Wrap a soft white shawl around you to stay warm. Pearl or diamond stud earrings are a good choice because they will not compete with your dress. Because this is a tube dress that exposes your neck and shoulders, you want to wear your hair pulled up to draw attention to those areas. If you need more sparkle, try a cocktail ring or thin gold bangles. Your dress is full of sparkles already so there is no need to add more.
For a funkier approach, try a black and white striped skirt paired with an embellished tank top, black stockings and glittering black heels. Add a pop of color with a bright pink clutch bag and a statement necklace. Add to that a black chiffon scarf.
If dresses and skirts are not an option, try a pair of slacks paired with a pretty top. Any color is acceptable! The holidays are full of fun and frivolity so why should your outfit stay muted and dull? Emerald green pants worn with gold heels and a gold corset is an incredibly sexy look without being too revealing. Cropped amethyst purple pants with silver heels looks stunning with a loose sweater covered in sequins. Or go monochromatic with navy pants, a periwinkle tank top, royal blue clutch and an ombre blue shawl.
Remember, the holidays only come once a year! Feel free to take risks with your holiday outfit! Keep it colorful, classy and sparkling and you won’t go wrong!

Wardrobe basics can be boring on their own. The reason is because they need to stay versatile to complement many different styles and personalities. It is easy to take an article of clothing at face value, but why not take a chance and dress it up a bit? The idea is to add some polish to your look. The accessories you choose can add elements of style that is uniquely you. Here are some common outfit combinations and ways you can dress them up. Small and subtle changes can mean a world of difference in your outfit.
The little black dress is a wardrobe staple that has potential for some amazing style. However a lot of women are afraid of taking it to the next level. They play it safe by wearing black heels, carrying a black clutch purse and wearing a solid colored pashmina. Instead of the safe route, why not spice things up a bit by ditching the black accessories and replacing them with a pair of leopard print peep toe heels, a bright red clutch and a bold statement necklace.
Another basic outfit is the classic jeans and a t-shirt. If worn alone, it just looks sloppy and boring. Wear a pair of snakeskin print sandals, drape a soft chiffon scarf in your favorite color around your neck, and carry a satchel with a chain strap. Add a cute newsboy cap to finish off this adorable look!
A work outfit usually consists of a black pencil skirt, a white button down shirt and sensible black heels. While this is an acceptable look, it is plain and boring. Change out the black pencil skirt for one in a rich jewel tone like emerald. Tuck the same white shirt into your skirt and wrap a black waist belt around yourself. Instead of the sensible black heels, wear a strappy heel in flesh tone to elongate your legs. Add a bold statement necklace and bright stud earrings and you have a look that is professional yet full of personality.
Next time you feel like wearing your basic outfit, add some pretty and fun accessories to dress it up. Make sure your personality shines through. Do not be afraid to try something new or add a funky pair of earrings to jazz up a tried and true look that you have worn before. These finishing touches can make or break your outfit.
