Wrist-takers: Bold looks from Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Week
Sep 10, 2013
Every year, Hollywood's hottest celebs head to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in their most chic attire to check out the next season's trends. While the looks are different every year, one thing remains the same: These stars dress to impress.
There was a range of different looks this time, but jewelry-wise, attendees seemed to focus on one element: bracelets. With a variety of bangles and watches, these celebrities kept the rest of their baubles to a minimum to attract attention to their wrists. Want to emulate the effect? Here are just a few of the best looks from backstage at the Rebecca Taylor show.
This British DJ, model and actress went all out with her wardrobe, wearing a zebra striped frock with a strappy bust and crossover neck detail. White pointy pumps and a small black patent clutch made the ensemble look elegant, and her natural makeup helped to tone down the daring dress. Leyland was smart to go light on her accessories as well. An unusual evil eye necklace offered an eccentric accent, but it was her bracelets that were especially eye-catching. Gleaming gold bangles complemented the lines in her dress and added a glamorous touch. You can't go wrong with a stack of bracelets like these, no matter your outfit. Next time you're wearing a dress with busy details, all you need is the Vernier Round Bracelet-Watch In Tutone 14k Gold-Plated with a structured ensemble and you'll maintain a somewhat professional, sophisticated look. Since it's both silver and rosegold, you'll be able to easily match it to your other jewelry.
It's no wonder Stahl is the Style Editor for Nylon Magazine: She's always on point when it comes to fashion. For this show, she rocked a sleeveless denim minidress, black ornate ankle booties, shades and a bevy of multicolored bangles. Follow Dani's lead and stack bracelets on both wrists for a bolder look. Diversity is key, so try incorporating some classic silver and gold bangles with colored enamel or beaded ones.
