1) Gold Jewelry-
Seen at: Balmain, Valentino, Alexander McQueen
Make it Yours: Mid-range in scale, gold jewels and elements added a sense of decadence to many of the season’s best looks. From Valentino’s heavily gold detailed accessories to Balmain’s 90’s era chunky updated chains, going gold hasn’t looked so right for Spring in quite a long time. So go ahead and pull out your favorite pieces that are just so, and never too loud. Shop statement gold jewelry now:
2) Fringe Details-
Seen at: Valentino, Alexander McQueen, Celine, Junya Watanabe Make it Yours: What started in New York continued to make a statement on runways throughout Europe as fringe elements made a splash on some of our favorite runways. We liked Valentino’s fringed bags best as they allow you to take advantage of the trend in the least challenging of ways. Shop fringe details now:
3) Metallic Finishes-
Seen at: Dries Van Noten, Rochas, Nina Ricci, Christian Dior
Make it Yours: In Paris, metallic finishes and fabrications made even the simplest of day dresses radiate with a glamorous sense of decoration. Even white cotton shirt dresses could be seen awash in silver foil appliques, which will help you standout in a sea of pastels. We were particularly fond of Dries Van Noten’s white tank dress finished with gold foil ruffles as it was a truly unexpected take on a classic. Shop the metallic look now:
4) Rethought Pleated Skirts-
Seen at: Celine, Rochas, Christian Dior Make it Yours: Breezey pleated skirts made a mark on many a runway for Spring this time around in gauzy fabrications with sophisticated design features. From classic shapes to asymmetrical, an emphasis on print and color-blocking made the seasonal standby look new. Take a cue from the collections and look for plays on print for a energized twist. Shop rethought, modern pleated skirts now:
