Accessories are what truly make the difference. Even if you’re wearing a simple t-shirt and a pair of jeans, what defines your style is what you combine with it. And how. What shoes are you going to choose? What about your bag? Whether it is for a special occasion or for your everyday life, for your first date or for a gala dinner, accessories are crucial.
However, finding the perfect one is no easy task and you have to be very careful. It must fit your personality, your outfit and your overall vibe. Details are what make you shine, and that’s a fact.
Given their importance, some accessories simply have become iconic. We are talking about special items of tremendous beauty, just like the famous women who have worn them. They are timeless and they are always going to be a symbol of class and elegance. Have a look.
Chanel Number 5
More than a perfume, it is a timeless icon. Chanel Number 5 is the best-selling perfume ever and its popularity reached its peak after an iconic interview with Marylin Monroe, in which the american diva was asked what she wore to sleep. From that moment on “Chanel N.5” wasn’t only an answer, it was the beginning of an era.
Audrey Hepburn’s Ballet Flats
Audrey Hepburn’s style is among the most loved and emulated ones in the world. Her refined pants, the iconic little black dress and, most importantly, those iconic ballet flats that we learned to love so deeply.
What made these shoes such a myth is still unclear. Perhaps it was because they allowed the handsome Hollywood star not to exceed in height many of the actors she worked with.
Or perhaps it was because while all the women walked on vertiginous heels, she stayed herself, with her defining shoes, making them an evergreen.
Kate Middleton’s Engagement Ring
The wonderful 18-karat white gold ring, with a 12-karat oval blue sapphire set with 14 shiny diamonds is worth £ 30,000. Not a record in the world of entertainment but the fact that it also belonged to Lady Diana adds a sentimental and emotional value that simply cannot be calculated.
“Return to Tiffany”
Let’s be honest: who doesn’t know Tiffany & Co.? The brand is famous all over the world, renowned for its engagement rings and characteristic silver jewelry. However, not many know that the classic Tiffany’s bracelet with the heart and the words “Return to Tiffany” on it is the best-selling jewel of all time. It might not have the glamour of handcrafted jewelry but people just love it.
Also available in gold, it is desired by women of all ages, from 12 to 80 year olds, thanks to its unique and elegant shape. That said, Audrey Hepburn’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” might have had some kind of influence on the company’s success, to say the least.
Iris Apfel’s Glasses
For many, Iris Apfel is the undisputed queen of style thanks to her seemingly chaotic use of clothes and accessories. With her bursting personality and originality, she has distinctive traits known all over the world.
One, however, reigns supreme: her oversized eyeglasses with round frames, a symbol of that “nerd fashion” idea that has become increasingly popular. And if someone asks her why she wears glasses of such huge dimensions, she simply replies: “To see you better …”.
