 Givenchy started the trend of this tribalesque nose accessory with it’s ‘Chola’ girls inspired Fall/Winter 2015 collection. Encrusted with pearls and rhinestones, this trend lends an appeal of edgy royalty. Of course, the best way to pull off this daring accessory is by teaming it with kohl-laden eyes and braided hair.

There’s nothing more chic than simplicity. Monochromatic metallic jewelry is a timeless fashion statement, it has the ease of dressing up an outfit without making it look overdressed. This season, the jewelry has a special touch of twisted knotting and punches of enamel. These pieces are the ones to invest in. Pair them up with clothing in neutral shades such as tan and grey to achieve an effortless summer look.

What’s life without a little whimsy? If proper is not your style, play up your look with pairing mismatched earrings. There are several ways to experiment with this trend, the best would be to pair a stud with a chandelier earring. Make sure both the pieces are delicate and have some common design elements. Don’t forget to tie your hair up into a chic bun for maximum impact.

Fashion is all about breaking boundaries and experimenting with new materials, whether it’s wood or plastic. PVC has always been a designer’s muse and many fashion houses have made collections including bags and shoes  made of the same. This time the gauzy material has been incorporated into earrings and cuffs. Extremely contemporary and edgy, this trend looks best with colourblocked seperates to lend a graphic, athletic appeal.

Statement chokers

Chokers have appeared and re-appeared in a trend cycle but each time they have evolved. This time they can be seen in a variety of styles, Balmain presented a severe piece with metallic finishes while Marni chose a playful route with colorful Bohemian elements. This piece is a statement in itself and easily transitions from day to night.
