For its Spring 2014 round-up of jewellery, Prada did what it does best — leather. The house's signature textured Saffiano leather is present in shocking shades of turquoise, orange, and green and accented with — what else? — light-catching crystals. See the gorgeous images here.
Lovisa is a local favourite for easy-to-wear, trend-driven accessories — at prices everyone can afford — so we're always keen to see what the high street stylers are doing next. And for Summer 2014, it's all about chunky hardware in mixed metals. Exotic headwear, heavy wristwear, and necklaces worn layered all contribute to the label's maximalist aesthetic for Summer 2014. While we won't be able to get our hands on the collection until January, you can get a peek at the campaign first, right here in the gallery. Head on through and begin your mental wishlist!

Carrie Bradshaw once lamented she’d literally be ‘the old woman who lived in her shoes’ after dropping a house-deposit sized amount of cash on shoes over a life time. And with designer footwear regularly costing in the four digits, we can relate.

We thought amazing, lust-inspiring designer bags were as good as it gets . . . until we spotted their pint-size counterparts. Some of the hottest statement pieces are available to shop tiny too, should you want a lighter version for nights out, busy holidays, or marathon shopping expeditions.
You know those bracelets you've been seeing on the wrists of street style studs around the world? Dainty, bright, and with just a hint of homespun, they'd left us puzzled about what they were and where to find them . . . until recently. The adult-age friendship bracelets are macramé from the Italian brand Cruciani C and can be shopped, conveniently, online. Internationally, check outposts in Madrid, Dubai, Seoul, New York City and Tokyo.
For months now, jewellery trends have followed the "less is more" train of thought, and everything we wear — from rings and earrings to bracelets, necklaces and headpieces — has become finer than a fresh spiderweb. Well, friends, these big guys here are moving in on the prime real estate that is our ears, arms and necks, and the charge is being led by none other than Aussie style icon Lara Bingle. When we interviewed the blonde beauty a couple of weeks ago, we couldn't stop staring at her jewellery (pictured above). The chunky chain links, heavy rings and solid bangles were a breath of fresh air. . . and we'd like more, please. Click through to scour our top 10 pieces of chunky metal jewellery — there's enough to suit any budget and preference. This way!
The piece: Michael Michael Kors Selma Bag
The price: approx $537
Why we want it: Anybody who has tried to find a bag that will work equally well on the weekend as it does in the office will be the first to admit: it's not an easy search. That's why we were so excited when we came across the Selma bag. It's flared silhouette, besides being very on trend, means it can stretch to fit all of your stuff, while its zip top ensures nothing will fall out as you run to catch the subway. Even better, you can sling it over your shoulder to give your arm a rest. Your other bags better watch out — a new favourite may soon be added to the mix.
Bet you didn't realize there was a third sister in the Dannijo clan — there's Danielle Snyder, Jodie Snyder, and, of course, Rashida Jones. "She's our West Coast sister," Danielle told us of the inspiration behind Fine by Dannijones.
The 18-piece collection, available now, ranges from approximately $100 to $600 and evolved from all three's beachside childhoods. "The palm tree is symbolic of the coasts — Jodie and I grew up in Florida and Rashida in LA. It's this idea of even when you're apart, you're together," Danielle told us of the line's centerpiece.
The other unifying inspiration, Rashida explained, was a love of jewellery: "I like it as a personal expression of taste. I'm a huge fan of Dannijo and we all met and instantly connected. We talked about collaborating on a fine jewelry line and here we are!"
