The skinny choker

The skinny choker

The defining fashion accessory of the ‘90s grunge era makes a strong comeback this year. Instead of the musty, plain thin velvet strip that was ubiquitous then, the Noughties chockers come in myriad designs and materials. In fact, layering different chockers like He Ying Ying here, is all the rage. Not only does it draw the eye up to the face, it also visually makes facial features look more delicate and feminine.

The attention-grabbing fedora

Hats can make or break a look - just ask Bruno Mars - and not all hats are created equal in the style stakes. The black fedora is now a hipster classic, but if you're looking to make a real impact, pick one in a bold, brash hue (like Carrie Wong's fiery red one) or this stylo-mylo zebra-print one that's guaranteed to put your face in the spotlight. Plus, its slightly exaggerated height will make your face look proportionately petite and pixie-like.

The metallic turban

Given how this statement-making hair accessory makes you look glamorous and stylish instantly, we wonder why more women aren’t embracing the fashion turban. You can wear it with all hair lengths, although we love it most when worn with a loose bun or a short crop, like Simone Heng here. Opt for a metallic version for a dressier, va-va-voom impact.

Bright, dangly earrings is a look that favours the bold. If you dare to wear them, they have the magical ability to not only brighten your complexion, they also impart a cool bohemian air.

The chic scarf

The chic scarf

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be in a wintry country to enjoy the face-framing benefits of a cosy scarf. Pick a lightweight one with a more glamorous design, like this sequinned one from Tommy Hilfiger, to wrap your neck in. Not only does it keep you warm in the freezing office or cinema, all that material around the face gives a flattering slimming effect.
