NYFW Spring 2015: Best Accessories

What is style without the proper accessories?! Here are our favorite game changers spotted on the runway thus far – you know, the ones that we can’t wait to start incorporating into our wardrobes. . .

Rodebjer: We were drawn to Carin Rodebjer’s nomadic inspired collection with her slouchy and silky ensembles in all the colors of the desert. The icing on the cake, however, was the addition of thin cotton jacquard scarves that were wrapped around the neck, draped along the back and tucked under jackets. A look we’re definitely replicating.

HippopoThames

If you happen to be in London this month, you must visit Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman‘s giant hippopotamus sculpture floating in the Thames River. The 70 foot wooden hippo is Hofman’s contribution to Totally Thames, a new annual event celebrating England’s longest river. Honestly, how adorable is this colossal water-loving creature?

DIY Leather Visor

Our love affair with hats isn’t limited to bowlers, skimmers, cowboy hats, baseball caps and beanies. We are crazy about visors. Season after season, we’ve been spotting these sun shaders on the runway. Last year, Rag & Bone‘s straw visors were perfect for the beach. This year, Marni‘s bejeweled, wide brimmed visors were sporty and trés chic. And next spring, we’re sure to see Adam Selman‘s scarf wrapped visors on the streets – or at least on Riri. After collecting vintage leather visors for years, Lauren created a easy to follow tutorial so that you, too, could relish in our visor craze. Plus, it makes the perfect accessory for those sunny fall days!
