Crystal Stud Peacock Motif Hard Box Clutch

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.

You can find this peacock motif hard box clutch at Chicastic.
