We've had time to breathe since fashion month, and so now we're dissecting some of the best trends seen on the streets of London, Paris, New York and Milan. We're especially interested in those which don't require loads of effort (talk to us in the new year for that) but do have maximum impact.
Taking inspiration from maximalism, the idea is to pile on jewelry of different metals. However, it does translates to items of clothing or shoes (like the fantastic selection seen in our October issue), depending on the mood. Whether you rack up the rings or find a heavy-metal dress, it's time to shine on.
Starting with the addition of eyelets, contrasted with a feminine silhouette.
Half-mermaid, half 70's dance queen, this high shine fabric is maximalism done right.
A more elegant, but not less shiny brocade is updated with an oversized silhouette.
Or, look to a maxi-dress with metallic oversized motif.
The addition of diamanté accessories and sparkly shoes adds interest to a day-time look.
Consider a full disco-ball in a 1940's silhouette dress and matching tights.
Go for a more subtle approach with gold shoes, like sneakers...
...or some cross-over mules...
Or thin strappy heels, to level up your look.
