We’ve seen the gold jewellery trend, the ‘It Girl’ accessories, Y2k aesthetics, and we love them all. Now, another new fashion trend is making its voice heard — beaded accessories.
What sets this trend apart from the others is the fact that it champions the craftsmanship of the artisans who spend hours creating them. From shoes to bags and earrings to bracelets, beads are everywhere now. Here’s how you can stay on top of this trend…
Luxury beaded earrings
Known for her exquisite creations, Olivia Dar combines Indian craftsmanship with French artistry. Her designs have intricate beading and are pieces that will stand out in your collection. With inspiration derived from nature, her best pieces feature motifs of birds and flowers.
If quirk is a non-negotiable aspect of your style, you’re in the right place. Tonoto uses the best craftsmanship to create funky earrings that are vibrant and full of fun. From cupcakes and flowers to bananas, butterflies and cherries, their earrings are one of a kind. Having a strong Y2k aesthetic, these pieces are versatile and will make all your fits stand out.
Beaded bracelet stacks
When in doubt, add a bracelet stack to your outfit. Beaded is a small business that creates customisable bracelet stacks that are oh so chic. Made with faceted glass and pearl beads, these bracelets are water and sweat-proof, which makes them hypoallergenic, while their anti-tarnish coating makes sure you can wear them all the time. Pick your favourite colours and get your own bracelet stack!
One of the best ways to add colour and texture to your fits is a belt, of course! Abeo’s new collection of handmade beaded belts are perfect for that. The wide belt will help give structure to your fits while giving you a flattering silhouette. Wear it with a dress or with jeans and you’ve got a show-stopping look ready.
If there was a phrase we could use to describe this bag, it would definitely be ‘candy crush’! The pink, orange, red, blue and yellow beads on the bag make it a great accessory to have in your closet. The beaded ball designs are adorable and make for a perfect fit for your saris, suits and lehengas.
Looking for a chic clutch to match your fits for date night? This is the one for you. The evil eye pattern makes the beads the highlight of the bag while the tassels add an element of bohemian fun to the ensemble. Not only is this bag spacious enough to fit your whole world in it but also elegant enough to make your outfit #OnPoint.
Inspired by the African tribes of the Maasai Mara, these closed-back espadrilles are a great pair to have in your shoe closet. The beadwork is detailed and gorgeous. Available in nude and black, the shoes have a thermoplastic rubber sole, along with a slight heel to make it more comfortable and flattering. It’s a great pair of shoes to wear to work or even to a brunch with the girls.
