Glam Girl

Statement pieces and dramatic details bring back the Old Hollywood glamour of yesteryear.

 

WITH SIMPLE SILHOUETTES and sleek textures on the menu for fall, the ever-elusive question of “what to wear to work” is seeking its saving grace in the accessories department. Bold bangles and hefty chains found refuge in 2012 a la an ’80s feminist-chic revival, and embellished bags and footwear ruled the runways. The season’s variation of Hollywood glamour delivers a rocker chic twist in the form of studs, patent leather and an abundance of black, while designers Michael Kors and Rachel Zoe rolled out furs and starlet-worthy baubles with intense color palettes. Lavish gemstones, polished metal, ribbon detail and intricate beading are just a few more attributes of the season’s head-turning jewelry theme—which can be accomplished no matter what your personal style. An A-line skirt in matte leather is the perfect canvas for a wrist-dangling beaded satchel or multi-strand gemstone-embellished necklace, while classic cuts in futuristic patent and edgy details like studs and spikes can give your old school look a high street feel. Whatever your choice take on the trend this season, one thing is clear: For the woman who appreciates the more glamorous approach to day-to-day fashion, the devil’s in the details.
