Our obsession with milk tea has gone way beyond the ice-cold boba beverages that we love to sip on, and spilt over into the realm of makeup and fashion.
We’ve fallen head over heels in love with everything from creamy tea-toned lipsticks to dyed “milk tea grey” hair colours, and now, we’re also into “milk tea” hair accessories.
There’s just something about “milk tea” hues that lend to a style of elevated elegance and sophistication. Plus, whether they’re buttery beige colours or soft, cool-toned browns, “milk tea” hues uniquely balance warm and cool undertones to look flattering on almost anyone who wears them.
If you’re ready to spruce up your all-too-familiar claw clip style, then keep reading because we’ve rounded up the best “milk tea” accessories you need to flaunt a subtle Korean aesthetic!

If you’re clad in neutrals, this cream-coloured clip will blend right in whilst sprucing up your outfit with its chunky outline. Or, you can use it to balance a fit that’s already splashed with vibrant colours!
