Each season fashionistas, celebrities and the social elite flock to New York, Miami, Paris and Milan for fashion week to take catch a glimpse at the latest trends. Everyone wants to know who and what the iconic fashion mavens are wearing. The images are soon uploaded to the internet, splashed across fashion magazines and become the subject of fodder for entertainment television shows. The high-end boutiques stock their “cashmere-lined” shelves with the latest looks and accessories; and, soon enough, the trends are readily available for the masses.
We’ve all poured over the pages of Vogue and dreamed of owning many of the beautiful clothes and accessories that grace the pages of the popular magazine. We all have our favorite designers and follow their evolving looks each season. The problem is we all cannot afford to buy those things; but, that doesn’t mean that we can’t incorporate those looks into our wardrobe. In fact, many celebrity stylists incorporate high-end pieces with budget buys and manage to make their clients look fashionably fierce.
Spring season is upon us and many fashion houses are infusing warm or cool colors with design pallets that are indicative of the season. Flowers, dragonflies and butterflies are popular this time of year. A lot of accessories are featuring eye-catching jewel-encrusted embellishments. Last Spring, Louis Vuitton featured bejeweled dragonfly bangles and bright gold cuffs speckled with semi-precious gemstones.
If you don’t have the extra funds to pay for a tony brand like Louis Vuitton try these affordable yet equally stunning options.
Big statement necklaces made a huge splash on the runways last fall and the fashion forward trend is carrying over into next season. These necklaces are an easy way to add style to your attire because you don’t need any other accessories while wearing them. They are the star of your ensemble.
Knowing how to spot the latest trends and find them at a decent price is a talent that every fashion savvy woman must master. Remember, being on a budget does not mean you have to sacrifice style.
