Fashion How-to's give you dependable style information to spark inspiration with highlighted products and design ideas focused on the Lavish Tradition trend -- making it easy to turn your finished-jewelry line "fashion-forward" while you save time and money.
Accessorize in Lavish Tradition
Interpret the classics with lavish displays of traditional designs. Outlandish ornamentation in rich, velvety colors has simple lines and soft edges that encompass a diverse landscape of European and British design traditions.
Vintage, collegiate styles move to a whole new (ivy) league with large, cable-knit mufflers, fabric jewelry and sweater-knit handbags. Mix and match plaids and argyles, embellish kilt pins with crests and badges and add tassels to chain for A+ designs.
How to wear the style:
Be bold with accessories. A large cuff or multi-strand bracelet goes a long way. Select one or two primary focal pieces to carry the weight of the look such as an oversized necklace coupled with a colossal cocktail ring.
Explore the potential of lace and large fabric beads knotted together in single- or double-strand necklaces. Wrap garish gold chain around wrists and waistlines. Pair several oversized, ornate focal pieces with drapery-style tassels. Add dimension to apparel with big brass buttons in distinctive patterns.
The combination of deep colors, extravagant details and extended lengths are key.
