The arrival of fall called for a change in fashion.  Less pristine and proper, now it comes with an edge.  A simple LBD is still chic, but has a little extra hardware.  Chains are no longer limited to handbags and skater kids.  Shiny and sturdy, these accents are showing up in unexpected places - replacing straps on dresses and lacing up the front of tops as well as oversized, multi-layer necklaces.  This metal moment extends beyond chains of all sizes, with the appearance of bars, grommets and other chrome accents.

From L to R: Serpui shearling and leather camera bag, Shay 18k gold and diamond chokers in white and yellow gold, Alexander Wang dress with chain straps & RtA Estelle hoodie.

The look remains glam with that touch of downtown, cool-girl that we always lust after.  For added edge, throw on a luxe hoodie and your favorite booties.
