The hottest accessories on the red carpet are a little bit cute, a little bit whimsical and a little bit, well, wacky. Being the central point of any outfit, eccentric accessories can make or break a look and more often than not even nail it. What more? You can wear boring clothes if you wish or repeat classics and let your accessories do all the talking. Let’s go on the fun learning curve of it, now.
Shoes are game-changers. Remember what they did for Carrie Bradshaw or Cinderella? Anushka Sharma maybe the queen of minimalistic style but she sure knows how to quirk up things now and then. These Burberry hand-painted floral booties scream fun and delicacy at the same go.
Being the adorable little girl of Bollywood, Alia Bhatt teams her bright-hued dress with this sweet Edie Parker clutch that conveys her vibe very much. Cutesy clutches aren’t strictly for the 25-and-under set, but sometimes those stars can pull it off in a way the rest of them can’t.
Never failing at making a piece stand out any less than it deserves, style diva Sonam Kapoor keeps it feminine but interesting in this confectionary color gown by Roksanda by pairing it with the classic case of crystal studded glory (Judith Leiber). This heart shaped clutch definitely has the heart in its place.
Piggy Chops is famous for making berserk fashion choices usually with casual undertones. She nails another airport look yet again with simple basic leggings and a tee which gives us a cue at the mood she is in. These winged Jeremy Scott iridescent-meets-technicolor sneakers are the coolest pairs we’ve eyed in a long time.
If there’s a name that always manages to make a bold fashion uproar while staying true to its very sense, it is Neha Dhupia. Teaming up an all black ensemble by Huemn with a stunning statement choker by Outhouse, she definitely went up notches with her look.
Staying true to herself and choosing her favourite silhouette of choice – the saree, Vidya Balan adds a contemporary vibe to it by wearing a cuff and over-sized earrings from Suhani Pittie. We love the subtlety of the quirk here.
More evidence that wearing a solo color outfit can be uplifted from plain to glam with a small inclusion? Deepika Padukone seldom prefers to skip accessories and who would want to if they are exotic looking pieces from London-based Mawi?
Shraddha Kapoor gets our “level up” for cheekily taking her paparazzi as inspiration and incorporating onto the red carpet with this Judith Leiber camera minaudiere. The perfect pairing for her lacy Osman number? Maybe not, but it’s a bag you can’t despise at all.
Cute and kitsch often go hand in hand. Attending a launch event, Jacqueline Fernandez chose an all cheap and chic Moschino separates and super cool yellow espadrilles. What made it stand out is this kitsch book clutch by Kate Spade which adds some fun to the vintage feel of the look.
Usually you do not pick tons of quirky choices if your sartorial pick is already quite high on the quirk meter. Abolishing such rules, Shruti Haasan went out and put together a look that could impress the likes of Manish Arora. A tiered Kristy De Cunha gown with a fish Judith Leiber bag and chunky Outhouse earrings at first felt like too much to take in. But for the love of all things Katy perry-ish, we do love it.
