Street fashion today is all about making an entrance. Choosing an outfit for the day has become a wonderful game of mixing and matching eye-catching pieces in order to communicate a style that expresses one’s individuality and uniqueness.
One of this year’s most talked-about trends is “embellished everything” which consists of embroidered, bejeweled, bedazzled and metallic pieces and accessories. Many of today’s top brands, such as Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen have taken this craze into the most luxurious runways, making it even more coveted than before. Being surprisingly versatile, this trend can be seen in everything from cozy sweaters to elaborate gowns to small leather goods and running sneakers – so even during your work out, you can shine in style. This season, jewels have been placed on all kinds of materials, from bold, high-contrast leather to smooth pastel fabrics, showing that everything and anything can be embellished.
Here we have provided a list of some of our favorite bedazzled couture pieces that, when paired with a hot pair of jeans or a sleek romper, are sure to make a statement. In the words of jewelry guru Harry Winston, “People will stare. Make it worth their while.”
