Exotic Sophistication by Karolina Barnes

Posted by on


If you’re like me, the one that doesn’t really do exotic style with full steam ahead, yet enjoys it with taste and sophistication, then these picks are for you. We’re not about wearing animal prints from head to toe or designing our bedroom with heavy tropical influences so it looks like a jungle. We’re more about expressing our personality through individual pieces, which help to create an interesting look, unique to us. It’s all about mixing and matching, utilising what we already have and spicing things up a bit.

For example, our Lily Black/White Spot pouch is so versatile. Its pattern and colours are purposefully classic. Not only that you can wear it as a crossbody or a clutch, but also the bag goes well with everything. If a simple white shirt and a pair of jeans combo is your daily uniform, all you need to do is to tie a pretty silk scarf, like the Beads Light Blue Silk scarf from Bianca Elgar, around your neck or wrist, and compliment it with the Mamushi flats from Taylor Blake to match the colours. Here is a close up of the handbag.

To complete the look, don’t forget to use jewellery to reinforce the “exotic sophistication” story. Choose natural materials and semi-previous stones with gold to add contrast to our silver chain.

And in your home? Why not update your living room, bedroom or hallway with a statement feature wall that will remind you of the exotic vibe all year round. It couldn’t be more simple than that.

Here are our favourite picks:
