A swipe of your favourite lipstick or spritz of a signature scent has long been considered the perfect finishing accessory to an outfit – much like the latest IT bag or pair of shoes.
Now, forward-thinking beauty brands are taking things one step further. They have been transforming their fragrances and lipsticks into actually wearable beauty, in the form of necklaces, bracelets and other accessories like clutches.
Discover how these renowned brands, including Diptyque and Merit, have taken the idea of wearable beauty to new heights, seamlessly blending luxury with practicality to make beauty products the latest must-have accessories.
This necklace never fails to get our beauty editor compliments (which is why it's her absolute favourite). It's a conversation starter in itself, due to the 24-carat gold-plated charm, and that discussion only increases when you can unscrew the vial of florally oud fragrance for people to enjoy.
Arguably one of the chicest collaborations of the winter season, cult status cosmetics brand Merit has revamped its signature makeup bag into a limited edition accessory with the help of Proenza Schouler. Reimagined in reversible vegan leather, it's even available for free when you spend $100. Our recommendation: invest in The Runway Set.
Trust Dior to design the perfect accessory for holding your winter red lipstick. The statement gold clutch with a delicate chain and eye-catching brand emblem will effortlessly complete any festive outfit, and inside you'll find a Rouge Dior, complete with three refills. The only drawback: it's limited edition, so get your hands on it while you can.
Diptyque's black-and-white-twisted friendship bracelets are infused with some of the brand's favourite scents; our favourite being the intensely floral Eau Rose. You cut the bracelets to length fresh everyday from the dispenser and the fabric holds onto the perfume longer than your skin, so you can enjoy your accessory and fragrance throughout the day.
Even fashion brands are getting in on the 'beauty as accessories' trend this season. BY FAR – known for its range of bags and shoes – has unveiled a collection of sustainable, refillable fragrances that are designed to be worn as customised keyring-like charms. The ultimate way to top-up your perfume on-the-go.
Every Kilian fragrance oozes 'cool girl' energy and the same goes for its range of accompanying coffrets. This one is inspired, like the brand's Woman in Gold range, by Gustav Klimt's portrait The Lady in Gold, and the statement clutch is just as captivating as the scent you'll find inside.
