Accessories make an outfit, or so we’re told. But we have to agree — just think how a choice between pair of ankle boots or a pair of laidback sneakers can change the whole vibe of a shirt-and-jeans ensemble, and similarly, the right bag, watch, jewellery and more pretty much informs the style you’re going for. Our go-to e-retailer, Luisaviaroma, understands that far too well, so we’ve scoured their site and an extensive women’s section, in order to give you these two must-have Spring/Summer essentials. Only for the fashion-conscious, of course.

First, something we all covet here at the NYLON office — an Alexander McQueen bandana, complete with the trademark skull motifs. The scarf is made of 100% silk, a trait we personally got to witness when it came in a neat box and had to open it up, after which we can’t help but swoon at the, well, silky-smooth texture of the piece. Made in Italy, with an all-over print that’s just busy enough for it to still be classy (and somehow, also, edgy), we’d tie this everywhere; on our bags, in our hair, and around our neck, a prime spot for a piece that’s sure to brighten up any dull outfit.

Secondly, a unisex item of a Casio G-Shock watch. It’s definitely versatile — the stainless steel band adds the necessary hardware to jazz up any fancy or casual combination, while we’d always opt for a digital watch face that proves the easiest way to tell the time. This casual piece isn’t that pricey, but it’s unique enough to turn heads, mostly because of the camouflage face. Pair this with an oversized jacket or military green pants.

To make them even more enticing, we’re running a contest where you stand a chance to win those items:
