Last but certainly not least, the final example of how surrealist accessories are here to stay is from the queen herself—ahem, Beyoncé. While this look is from a few years ago, it proves this trend’s staying power and continued relevance. Sure, these accessories may be divisive, and some may even say they’re “unnecessary,” but at the end of the day, all that matters is how you feel about it. In the words of Beyoncé herself, always stay gracious; the best revenge is your paper. And I say that wearing a money-shaped clutch or any surreal accessory is worth the investment, even if it causes a stir in the comment section.
