The latest accessory trend to captivate the world? Insect adornments! Bugs, bees, dragon-flies in exaggerated forms were a theme of Lanvin’s 2013 collection. Although the idea sounds a bit creepy, designers created many captivating pieces of insect necklaces, brooches and cuffs. The standout bijoux will completely transform the look of classic winter staples.

There have been many luxe variations of the voluminous coat but the pastel pink one is a star buy for winter 2013. Wear with tailored pantsuit and women’s brogues for a modern take on a tomboy dressing.
