THE LOOK FROM THE RUNWAY
Minimalist, classic, clean silhouettes ruled the fall runways, from Saint Laurent to Chanel and Rodarte. The secret to styling a modern classic look are the accessories. While bold necklaces in natural stone and chunky metallic bangles could be seen, the earring accessory mantra this season is: less is more.
Nothing could be simpler (and more elegant) than the classic stud diamond earring. Wear to work with a simple knit dress or well tailored suit or dress up for the evening with a simple slipdress under a statement red coat. Or, if you want to make your earrings the star, head-to-toe black never goes out of style, is always très chic, and makes your diamonds sparkle.
