After Erin Wasson’s success designing for Alexander Wang’s runway collection one of the most down to earth and well known model turned designer turned stylist now dabbles in jewelry. Her pieces are designed in collaboration with Low Luv Jewelry. The pieces are constructed from 14-karat gold and silver-plated materials. Wasson’s Spring collection was inspired by Nordic and Aztec designs. These pieces she’s made exclusively with Low Luv are much more affordable than her runway pieces, obviously.
Common Projects is a collaboration between designers Flavio Girolami and Prathan Poopat. Inspired by the lines and shapes of everyday objects, they design their shoes with a tailored approach while using the finest materials and techniques.
Common Projects Spring 2010 shoes are getting a lot of attention around the new colorways in their 5-Hole Slip On. The shoes are featured in three color tones for Spring and Summer, including white/yellow, white/red, and white/black. All feature the superb quality Common Projects has become synonymous for over the years.
Dana Lee’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection is here, and May’s delivery is soft and yet still trendy enough to pair with jeans. Chambray shirts are offered in an eye-catching dip dye, and denim jackets and plain polos provide balance to a youthful ensemble. Everything is young, fresh, and simple at Dana Lee, and ready to get a wash of sunshine. Mainly pastels and basics here.
My favorite accessory, hands down, would have to be necklaces. There are chokers, pendant necklaces, pearl necklaces, bead necklaces, gold and sterling silver necklaces, long draping necklaces, plastic necklaces, and jeweled necklaces to choose from, who wouldn’t find what they’re looking for with all this variety? For me, deciding which one to wear each day is challenging because I more than one work with my outfit….so bring on the Spring 2010 trend of layering necklaces.
Layering necklaces to create entirely new looks. The key to layering necklaces is layering different styles of necklaces. If you layer necklaces that are all the same, the look is not as effective or nearly as interesting. Try to find necklaces that are of different lengths. Also try alternating pendants and beaded necklaces. You shouldn’t be afraid of mixing metals. In the past, mixing gold and sterling silver jewelry was a faux pas, but when it comes to this trend, mixing metals is completely fine. Also, don’t worry about it being too bulky. Usually, more you have on, the better, but do not go overboard. Three to four necklaces should do the trick! If the necklaces are bulky on their own opt for a smaller number of necklaces. If they are thin and dainty you can add more! Try to mix weights, colors, lengths, and styles, and you will come out with a fabulous new look.
Layering rings is a huge look right now. Models such as Abbey Lee Kershaw (pictured here) can flawlessly pull this look off (probably because they work with high ticket stylists). Right we’re hearing that stylists are inspired by the hippy, 70s movement; incorporating mood rings and cabochons wherever they can.
Styling tip for the average ladies: Rather than punky skulls and knuckeldusters or the overly blingy sparkly cocktail rings, try stones like turquoise, amber, aquamarine, garnet, lapis lazuli and onyx. Below is an image of Kristine F from Larvik, who has the look down in her Hunter Child outfit post on Lookbook.nu.

Many fashion-forward overalls showed up on the runways for Spring 2010; leather, suede and silk from Ralph Lauren, Chloe and Altuzarra, but my absolute favorite catwalk comeback was the urban take on the trend by Jean Paul Gaultier. He took the infamous 1990s look and put an updated, edgy and versatile spin on it for an outcome that gives the jumpsuit a run for its money.
