We know tech accessories aren't really the kind of accompaniment you want to splash your cash on . . . But wrap your iPad into a beautifully-constructed sleeve and then tell us you don't love dressing up your gadgets. It's impossible not to love the fact that your possessions are being protected (remember how much that MacBook set you back?), and that what you're holding them in looks so cool it could be part of your wardrobe. In fact, we reckon some of the goodies in this gallery are just begging to have a run as an structured clutch. . .Click through to check out the coolest tech accessories we could find!
Looking for a quick mid-week pick-me-up that'll carry you through to the weekend? We've got just the pretty little things for you. Bold earrings have been slowly making their comeback for a while now, and The Great Gatsby effect has seen a strong 1920s influence on all things dangly. Whichever way you turn nowadays, there's a pair that's pretty enough to stop you in your tracks. But here, we've done the hard yards and whittled a long list down to 10 of the best out there — all under $45. Less than a fifty? Heavy ears never felt so good! Come this way.
Give a little back this Sunday to the lady who brought you into this world. And when we say lady, we mean — laydee, capital L! If your mum is girly-girl who drinks tea from a proper teacup (and mandatory saucer) and has been known to rock a pencil skirt in her time, we've got a gift guide that is sure to delight this Mother's Day. Think elegant presents that appeal to her inner Betty Draper. Ready? OK — let's go!
Even if you're not the traditional-bridal-type, a veil can add that je ne sais quoi to your big day. And when we say je ne sais quoi, we mean drama. Capital D. This little styling trick certainly nods to tradition, but it can also jzush up a simple dress and can facilitate that all-important 'lifting of the veil' gasp at the altar. Whether it's a cascading cathedral-length train, a lace-edged mantilla or shorter, more contemporary veil that takes your fancy, we've put our online sleuthing caps on to find ten of the most beautiful bridal veils online. Here comes the bride . . .
If you've been logging time on any shopping sites (who hasn't?) or doing some awards-season-stalking, you may have noticed that the humble clutch — everyone's go-to evening bag — is taking a little walk on the dramatic side. Gone (temporarily) are the days of simple envelope clutches that complement your outfit; 3D clutches are all about making a statement of their own — the quirkier, cooler and brighter, the better! We loved Rosario Dawson's beautiful silver goodie at the Golden Globes, but if you like yours a little bolder, look to Helena Bonham Carter for style inspiration (yes, seriously). Fruit take your fancy? We've got you covered, too. click through to see our top 10 picks!
Boy-sexy versus girl-sexy: it's the eternal sartorial debate. Our solution to this date-night outfit debate is to take a little bit from both camps. Temper a sexy sheer insert with a high-neckline. Wear those sky-high heels with a grey marle tee. Invest in a flirty little red dress, but make sure it's not of the spray-on variety. Valentine's Day is just one sleep away, so for last-minute inspo' I asked the ever-stylish Sugar editors to share their ideal date-night buys. Wanna see how they're going to navigate the sexy/sweet divide?
