Glam Girl

 In Guide, Style

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.
