Currently Coveting... April 26 2015
FINALLY…….we can confidently welcome spring. The warmer weather is the perfect time to unveil your personal style as you shed off winter layers. We are beyond excited about our accessories’ collection for the season.
Whether you are looking to update your wardrobe with a statement stud or for that extra special Mother’s Day gift, here are some of our favorite luxe looks that we are currently coveting.
These aren't your typical Victorian pearls. With mixed metals, floating settings, and contrasting shapes, pearls have made their mark this season as true statement jewelry.
Gracing almost every runway show at New York Fashion Week, fringe is having its turn in the spotlight. Go for a fringe tassel on your clutch for a subtle take on the trend, or go all out in fringe jewelry (and layering is always a do).
Whether you're beach bound tomorrow or you have to wait a few more weeks, you can get your style ready now. From beachy florals to organic statement necklaces, your resort-wear can now be worn 24/7.
So grab a few pieces and get ready to take on the season in style!
Breaking Fall Trends 2014 – Feathers and Birds November 05 2014
NY, London, Milan, Paris Fashion Weeks–Fashion designers flocked to two distinct micro trends this season: feathers and birds. Whether embellishing their designs with actual feathers or using bird motifs in prints, knits, or accessories this trend is flying high!
Feathers have a bit of retro glamour and sophistication to them. They are somewhere between fab costume & a demure fashion forward style. Sported as apparel, it appears to dance and move at the slightest wind blow and is irresistible.
How to wear feathers without looking overdone? Instead of draping yourself in feathers choose one item. Here, a luxe skirt spotted at Second Time around by Calypso St. Barth is one of our faves.
Worn as an accessory, feather motifs take on a more organic vibe. Here are some feather faves with a touch of gold and glam. Shop these looks at ChicStreets.com.
