FOLDOVER CLUTCHES || 3 ways to style

Our Moroccan leather fold over clutches are one of our favorite everyday pieces! Super easy to transition, you can take them everywhere from your morning meeting, to lunch with your BFF, to a night on the town…. The opportunities with these little bags are endless!  (Not to mention, they make perfect gifts for all the women in your life!) We asked our stylist, Savvy Souk, to help us with some looks and here is what she came up with!

LOOK 1

The ‘Little Olive’ Leather Fold Over Clutch is great for the girl-on-the-go! Accessorize with jeans, a fab Fall jacket or blazer, and some knee-high leather boots! We especially love how the sweet shade of light pink looks with the contrasting dark olive. This look is so classic and simple, every woman should already have these pieces already in their closet!

LOOK 2

The ‘Mauve Maude’ Leather Fold Over Clutch looks so stylish with a chunky ivory sweater and some matching pumps! This look is so cozy, it’s great for an evening out  with the girls, or even just a relaxing Saturday with your beau. Don’t you love?

LOOK 3

This bold and colorful outfit is a great example on how to style a Fold Over Clutch on a casual day of fun! Heading downtown to go shopping or going out for coffee with a friend? Pair a bright sweater with a comfy pair of flats (we love ‘Attack of the Green Python’ Flats!) and a statement necklace (like our ‘Nantu Waterfall’ Necklace), and then grab your favorite Maven Clutch and you’re ready to go!

5 Ways To Wear A Scarf

Let’s face it: Everybody LOVES scarves, but not everybody knows how to wear them! In fact, I myself struggle on coming up with ways to tie them that are different than the obvious. Instead of wearing your scarves the same way everyday, here are 5 ways for you to change up your look… One for every workday of the week!

The “Muffler II” – Wrap your scarf this way for extra neck coverage!

“Loose Wrap” – A fabulously easy way to wrap a large scarf or stole.

The “Slip Knot” – Probably the easiest, and most popular, of the scarf ties!

The “Shrug” – Wearing a sleeveless dress? Try this style to add some flair to your outfit, or to keep you warm on a chilly night!

“Scarf Belt” – Replace a belt by tying a scarf around your waist (or hips). Don’t be afraid to experiment with patterns and solids depending on what you’re wearing!

We’d love to see how you wear your Maven scarves! Show us #stylewithmaven!

A Peace Treaty

Brought together by their love for high fashion and the awareness of disappearing indigenous design, Farah Malik and Dana Arbib conceptualized a company that brought income to regions of sociopolitical strife. A Peace Treaty was born in 2008.

An evolving collection of luxury fashion, A Peace Treaty is known for their artisan-level accessories. Each season, jewelry and scarf collections are re-defined using unique colorways, ancient handmade textiles, and metal-smithing techniques that otherwise would not be used. Looking to support artisans’ technique and craft while promoting luxury design for a worldwide audience, these pieces are ethically-produced, providing above fair trade wages and income generation opportunities for disabled, widowed, and/or marginalized women.

A Peace Treaty creates employment for local village artisans in nine different countries – Pakistan, India, Nepal, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and the United States.
