Fashion Trend Report 7 of 10: 5 Ways to Accessorize Bohemian Effects

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. Bohemian effects were among the spring 2015 clothing trends outlined in Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2015 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know and Why. Here are five jewels to accessorize bohemian clothes.

Bohemian Effects

Craft details were fully appreciated during the shows: raffia and puka shells at Isabel Marant, embroidery at Dennis Basso, Mongolian lamb vests at Gucci, and feathers at Brunello Cucinelli. DIY influences were seen in the clothes as well as in found-object earrings and necklaces by Sonia Boyajian and at Nina Ricci, according to Style.com, and fringe was positively everywhere! Complementary accessories should include other natural elements like wood and leather, as well as beads and jewelry fringe fashioned out of chain and/or chain and stones.
