Fashion Trend Report 3 of 10: 10 Ways to Accessorize Relaxed Silhouettes

Key spring ready-to-wear clothing shows in four cities—New York, London, Milan, and Paris—took place from Sept. 2 through Oct. 1, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends. Jewelers need to take note in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season ahead. Relaxed Silhouettes were among the spring 2015 clothing trends outlined in Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2015 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know and Why. Here are 10 ways to adorn some of those spring ensembles.

Relaxed Silhouettes

It’s déjà vu all over again for spring’s loose-fitting silhouettes. Thakoon Addition showed shirtdresses, Roberto Cavalli unveiled shift numbers (albeit with sequins), and others had roomy culottes and long, swishy skirts. Jewelry looks featured long, oversize and short, sweet pendant necklaces, while additional smart looks should include cabochon cuts of stones and colorful enamel or plastic numbers that coordinate with outfit colors.
