Rings & Things: Candy sweet
Time to indulge your sweet tooth! Fashion has a serious penchant for all-things candy coloured in dress, footwear and accessories this spring. Burberry’s spring 2014 runway was awash in lemon drop, bubble gum pink and mint green, as was awards season where the stunning newbie Lupita Nyong’o led the charge in a candy apple red Ralph Lauren cape dress and marshmallow cream Giambattista Valli separates.
In our books, accessories are always where the true play is at, like our stackable rings in Hubba Bubba pink; the beaded bracelets that look tasty enough to eat, or the ribbon necklace reminiscent of the candy necklaces of our youth in all its pastel pop glory.
As for outfits, the key to the candy look is avoiding anything too sickly sweet and opting for silhouettes that are strict and well tailored (back to Nyong’o). Pair your new jewelry to a shift dress in peach, or a menswear-inspired dress shirt in plum. The range of colours is at your disposal because – great news, girls – they go with virtually every complexion.
