Celebrity stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott recently shared their picks for three accessories worth splurging on: a black clutch, metallic heels and a timeless watch. Accessories work powerfully to elevate an outfit and bring fresh, dynamic elements to it. I also rely on accessories to provide a finishing touch that pulls the look together. My splurge-worthy pieces? I'd include intricately bold jewelry and color-blocked heels.

What I love about the little black dress is the limitless possibilities to inject your personal style. Feeling classic? Wear a classic black shift with red lips and stiletto pumps. Feeling bold? Find an asymmetrical cut and complete with statement shoes and equally eye-catching jewelry. For my look I chose the latter with a silky Helmut Lang dress and rose-gold accessories.
My investment piece for the summer was the newly reinvented Balenciaga Cage bracelet—a fiercely intricate work of art. I wear the bracelet whenever I want to add some bite to my look. I also love color-blocked heels because they are incredibly versatile. These would coordinate equally well with black, white or camel clothes/accessories—think a camel trench or textured white bag.
What do you think about my look, and what are some of your splurge-worthy accessories? Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead!
