The need for comfort and practicality from what we wear is greater than ever in our busy and demanding lives. Just take a look at how athleisure has become one of the most popular trends of the decade. What we used to only wear at the gym can now be seen everywhere, perhaps more for the sake of function than just being stylish.
For example, you can either wear a cute silver bracelet, or a fitness band that can track your activity, tell the time and let you know when your phone has a message. That’s not to say there isn’t a time and place for everything, but a few functional accessories will go a long way in making your day-to-day life easier, so here’s 5 of them for you to try out.
Yep, you read that right. Fragrance brand Lisa Hoffman recently released a line of earrings that are not only pretty, but also feature a variety of different scents. They’re light enough that it won’t be noticeable from miles away and are made from natural fragrances. A variety of different styles and materials are available, including rose gold and silver tones.
Stylish Reading Glasses
Reading glasses are generally quite boring. They’re the type of thing you buy, wear and never really give much more thought to. But certain brands, such as these Calvin Klein glasses, are more thoughtfully designed and can actually compliment your outfits with their unique frames and colorways.
Custom FitBit Case
A run-of-the-mill rubber Fitbit is the perfect accessory for going for a run or heading to the gym, but it won’t exactly compliment your evening ensemble on date night. Fortunately, plenty of more stylish options are available, such as the double-wrap bracelet by Tory Burch.
This features a sleek and stylish metal case that you can simply slip your FitBit tracker into, with a variety of bracelet styles including leather options. This way, you can dance all night without missing out on tracking all those extra steps you took.
You might have seen these bracelets before. They feature a hidden USB connector so that you effortlessly keep your phone charged on the go. The only problem is that most of them are rather unsightly. Fortunately, a few more stylish, designer-esque options exist, such as the Lighting Bracelet by Rebecca Minkoff, which has a classy black and gold finish.
Designed by makeup artist Nikki Hynek, this chic clutch bag is built to keep your makeup gear organized on the go. It features loops for your brushes, a sizeable mirror and a customizable magnetic palette. So you can say goodbye to the days of having to rummage through your handbag and struggle to see your face on a phone screen.
As you can see, you don’t need to forgo style to add a great deal of functionality to your outfits. If anything, the two can go hand-in-hand if you find the right products. Try taking this approach more often when it comes to what you wear, the results might surprise you.
