Accessories are the delicious icing on the ensemble cake. No outfit is complete without a finishing touch in the shape and form of accessories. Here are the top must-have accessories for your wardrobe by fashion lover and accessory obsessed, Masoom Minawala.
Coco Chanel said it a long time ago and who are we to oppose the legend herself? Pearls are magicians. They have the power to instantly transform your outfit from casual to dressy and from day appropriate to night elegance. They are the most efficient multitaskers of any accessory collection.
Fashion tip: Try wearing your string of pearls with a saree. You will be pleasantly surprised with the rather fabulous outcome.
A Gold Cuff
Accessorizing just got a whole lot simpler with the entrance of the gold cuff. Timeless minimalistic and easy, gold cuffs are a sure fire way to add a dash of sophisticated glamour. Turn up the love by wearing one on each wrist or pile them up on one arm itself for an exaggerated effect.
Fashion tip: Invest in gold cuffs in all sizes, patterns and tones of gold as they will never go out of fashion and will serve you well for many years to come.
A Metallic Watch
Empty out those pockets and make an investment with this one. A watch is as much an accessory as it is a timepiece. A metallic accent works perfectly because this is an accessory you don’t want to keep changing. Make it a rule not to step out of your door with an empty wrist – it speaks volumes about your personality.
Fashion Tip: Match the colour tone of your metallic watch to suit your skin tone.
A Box Clutch

Chic and tough, box clutches emit oodles of confidence with a single appearance. The structured presentation makes a strong statement. Opt for a smaller size for evenings but experiment with different shapes and larger box clutches for daytime escapades.
Fashion Tip: Sometimes choose a fun and quirky box clutch to pair with your outfit in order to add an unexpected twist to finish off your look.
