Trend Watch: Your Out of this World Winter!

By: Erica Delp

The first month of 2012 has already brought a variety of fun new fashion trends headed our way thanks to London Fashion week just around the corner next month.

One trend featured in the January issue of Marie Claire that is funky and perfect for the transition from winter into spring is the something that I like to think of as the Cosmic or Space Age trend. It features clothing and accessories in metallic and iridescent sheens as well as “electric” tones and colors. Think saturated lime greens and cobalt blues. These pieces also often feature sequins, crystals and other elements of sparkle. It’s a modern twist on some of the far out pieces we all remember from the 1980’s.

Some perfect gemstones to pair with this look are Moonstone, Labradorite and Opal. All of them embody the luster that perfectly captures this trend. A large stone on a flashy cocktail ring, pendant or bracelet is a perfect compliment for a glitzy jacket or shimmery dress.

Also, accessories that resemble spacey kind of look are right on point for this theme. Think of selecting jewelry that is studded or glittery in some sort of fashion. Druzy stones are a good choice for this purpose. Marcasite jewelry also provides the shimmer that is reminiscent of stars in the sky.

Putting any of these elements together is the perfect way to channel your inner cosmic Diva. Check out some of these fabulous on trend selections from Layne Designs.
