There are times when a trend is simply so beautiful that I happily embrace it without a second thought. However, sometimes my adoration for a trend reaches such a fervor, and I grab onto it so tightly that within a few, short weeks my closet is bursting at the seams with it.
(Cue the chorus from my favorite Cardigans’ track, Love Fool: Love me, love me. Say that you love me.)
When it comes to embracing trends, I find that subtle is often better. One such trend that I am excited to incorporate into my spring wardrobe is about as subtle as it gets, yet it was seen on dresses, handbags and jewelry during the spring presentations.
This spring trend, you ask?
(Well, even if you didn’t, I am still going to tell you. hehe)
Metal ring details, of course.
J.W. Anderson adorned bags with the circular detail, and Mugler added a metal circle to zippers on many of his recent creations. I am currently getting my fix by carrying a handbag that boasts a metal ring on its front flap and matching chain strap to boot.
Who else is ready for a
lot little heavy metal action this season?
Now that the holidays have officially arrived, I have decided to embrace my inner Bianca Jagger and don the bow blouse like I’m the style maven making a grand entrance at Studio 54 back in 1979. Not that I need an excuse to rock the pussy bow trend with abandon, but it is always nice to have another option when you are making the rounds at this year’s holiday soirees.
Along with its day-to-night versatility, this trend is so easy to don. It can be worn with jeans, dressier trousers, and it can even be paired with with a skirt or dress.
The best part?
If you still have that silk, skinny scarf that was all the rage last season, you can actually style it with your favorite button down confection to create a whole new look that embraces the bow blouse trend.
If there is one important thing we learned this season, it is that shoulders are the next big accessory.
