Fashion & Style: Summer style can be bewildering, but accessories for summer can help dress up anything from beachwear to nightwear. This season was no exception, with designers experimenting with everything from haute hip-hop looks to timeless classics punched up with designer details.
The runways for the season were packed with detailed strutting their stuff carrying everything from fringed bags to pouches on belts. While some models were still schlepping the oversized chained carry-alls popular season after season, others had hands-free options. Various designers seemed to be playing with modern "fanny packs" by packing pouches on belts. Everyone from Christian Dior and Hermes to Michael Kors were focused on low-slung belts with careful, jewelry-like details, with or without pouches. Other accessories to pick up this season are bib-necklaces as well as bejeweled collars.
For something new on the wrist, try a thick geometric bangle and if you're feeling really daring, try it in a bold print, like leopard. To take the look from the runway to the streets, wear just one at a time, rather than piled on both arms like the models at Hermes and Galliano.
