Kyle's Style Essentials Video
Our very own Accessories Director Kyle Anderson details his accessory rules to live by, and how to finish every look in perfect style.
Hi. I'm Kyle Anderson; I'm the Accessories Director of Marie Claire US. And I'm here today to talk to you about accessory rules to live by. I would say my number one accessory rule is that you shouldn't have any rules. I think when you leave the house you should choose pieces that just make you feel amazing and when you walk down the street they just make you feel confident and great. The brands that you wanna invest in right now, it changes from season to season, I see a lot of editors and the stylists are buying pieces from Balmain, they're buying like necklaces from Lanvin, Givenchy; shoes from Alaya. I feel like season by season it really, really changes. And it depends on what the collection looks like that season. For me I'd like to say when in doubt go for more. I like to sort of stock and pile jewelry, and for me it's a look I feel really strongly about. So, today, Amanda's look is a Giambattista Valli skirt, a T by Alexander Wang t-shirt, and a jacket from Oscar de la Renta. And I think there's a sort of two different ways this look would go; if you wanna go out in the evening, you want more of a downtown look you might wanna pair it with something like a studded bag or a booty with stud details, or even a piece of jewelry with a lot metal hardware on it. And if you take this look and make it a bit more uptown and feminine you might wanna pair it with something like a jewel necklace or something like a lace booty.
