Maria Dueñas Jacobs, ELLE Accessories Director (@mduenasjacobs)
Milan Fashion Week


  • "A robe coat. I find this shape so chic, effortless and warm."
  • "Solid colored booties. I have a forever growing collection of booties and take a few of my most comfortable ones with me. I like bringing ones that are a bit more unexpected (white patent, for example) so that they feel a bit more special."
  • "Last season was all about the statement earring. I will take a few of my favorite hoops and bigger earrings to mix and match and help dress up my outfits."
  • "I like to bring various bags when I travel (and change them everyday) so I opt for smaller sizes that take up less room in my suitcase. I nearly always have my phone and ticket in my hand so I don't need much other than my lipstick, hotel key and some cash."
  • "I bring a couple of my favorite pairs of jeans and dress them up with different tops, sweaters and, of course, accessories."

  • "Nat Sherman Fantasies to channel my inner Serge Gainsbourg."
  • "Any Baudelaire book because ain't no greater statement piece than a good book."

  • "Garter belts, stockings and real decadent lingerie—Tinder in Paris is lit!"
