Style with a message is arguably the most powerful trend of the year, from feminist tees to equality pins to bags that promote a cause. What you wear can be more expressive than ever, and it's a way to speak without actually having to talk. The latest place to get your meaningful fashion fix? Fox News weekend anchor Arthel Neville's women's empowerment accessory line.
I'll be honest: the last place I'd expect to see a powerful, feminist line of accessories come from is a Fox News anchor, but Neville's collection is a pleasant surprise (and it absolutely makes me consider some of my bias). The pieces in her line of outspoken, sassy accessories are both chic and meaningful, and they pretty much scream girl power.
Her line includes totes, pouches, wristlets, cosmetic bags, and passport covers with boss lady phrases like "you can't erase me" and "who said I couldn't do it?" (Neville's personal mantra). Come to think of it, they make pretty fantastic gifts for the incredible ladies in your life, whether it's your fierce grandmother or hustler best friend.
The 11 pieces run from $30 to $75, and they're available on the brand's website. Here's a look at five of the best items to snag now.
