Fashion Trend Report 6 of 10: 10 Ways to Accessorize Flora and Fauna Themes

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. Flora and fauna themes were among the spring 2015 clothing trends outlined in Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2015 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know and Why. Here are nature-inspired ways to accessorize those looks.

Flora and Fauna Themes

Ermanno Scervino and Marchesa had floral prints in their collections, as did Jenny Packham, who also served up palm fronds. In fact, palms were fanning the creative flames of several houses: Band of Outsiders, Veronica Beard, and Elizabeth and James. Feathers, too, had a robust showing at Erdem, Fendi, and Brunello Cucinelli. For those dressed head-to-toe in these motifs, offer solid-metal styles or pieces with pops of color from a print.
