Craving & Saving: Accessories

Perisha Kudhail battles out designer versus high street accessories. Crave ‘n’ save away

With winter’s arrival, it’s easy to fall into the trap of sacrificing style for warmth. But have no fear, accessories are here! We understand the need to stay comfy and cosy in the winter, but you can get a designer look without freezing your toes off.


The power of the scarf is highly underestimated and should be exploited more. This simple accessory can be your protector of the wind as well as make you look hella fine.

With our scarf game on point, we can’t forget about what lies beneath. Jewellery can make or break an outfit, and winter is just another excuse to bling up. Long necklaces add a hint of elegance to any outfit.

With your daytime bling sorted, you can’t very well neglect your jewellery choices for the evening ahead. Fantastic earrings are a great way of making a statement, adding a touch of elegance to your look.
