The latest accessory trend to captivate the fashion world? Insect adornments! Bugs, bees, dragon-flies in exaggerated forms were a theme of Lanvin’s 2013 collection.

The standout bijoux will completely transform the look of classic winter staples.

Oversized pastel coat

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.
