Festival-Style Jewelry and Fashions for

For many fans, the Coachella Music Festival near Palm Springs, California, is as much about the fashions as it is about the music. Coachella’s Boho looks have been chronicled on social media and by fashion editors for several years, but now Festival Style is officially “a thing.” The annual event runs for two Replica Van Cleef & Arpels Necklace weekends in April, and this year a record crowd is expected in the desert. Whether or not you attend, you can infuse your warm-weather wardrobe with festival-style jewelry and fashions that will work in any casual setting or Spring Break destination.

Tops Joining last year’s festival-fave crop top is the off-the-shoulder blouse, and the newly-popular bralette. Consider also a kimono, a breezy cover-up that looks great over a tank top with cutoffs or a short skirt. Look for vintage “I’m-with-the-Band” logo T-shirts online and at local thrift stores. For cool desert nights (or after sundown where you live), a jean jacket is an absolute must. The Gap’s “1969” model retails for $69.99; it’s a classic that has inspired designer versions at many times the price. Bottoms Denim cutoffs in blue or white are the uniform of the day at Coachella. But if you’re not the short-shorts type, try a long, flowery skirt with a tank top or T. Mix and match these bottoms with your jean jacket and kimono wrap. Anything goes, as long as it’s Boho! Dresses Nothing works better in a hot climate than a gauzy midi- or maxi-dress, and this season all the Fake Van Cleef Alhambra Necklace best ones come in floral prints. Wear yours with boots or wedge-style espadrilles. You’ll look cool and stylish when the action heats up. Jewelry and Accessories To round out your festival-style outfits, shop for woven leather belts, cross-body bags, backpacks, floppy hats and flat-soled boots (a must for walking between music venues at Coachella). When it comes to jewelry, think extra-long pendants and Southwestern statement necklaces. We love the Audrina Warrior Bib from Baublebar, a convertible style you can wear three different ways.

Celebrate Super Bowl 50 with a Designer

Are You Ready for Some Designer Football? In what has to be one of the most unusual match-ups since Beauty met The Beast, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has teamed up with the National Football League (NFL) to create 50 custom-designed footballs in celebration of Super Bowl 50 (February 7).  Fashion and Jewelry Superstars CFDA members including cheap cartier trinity bracelet jewelry superstars, and Jennifer Meyer, were tapped to drape, dazzle and bejewel official NFL footballs, which will be auctioned off between now and February 14. Proceeds will benefit the NFL Foundation. You can bid at home on these one-of-a-kind footballs, but expect to see very little traditional pigskin. The participating designers have disguised them in everything from gold tassels to studs and chains, buttons and black lace to colorful gemstones. At publication time the football bids were averaging between $500 and $600 each. An Important Fundraising Initiative “We are pleased to partner with the NFL…which highlights CFDA Members’ unique talents and passion for creativity while giving back to youth and important fundraising initiatives,” said Adam Roth, CFDA Director of Strategic Partnerships, in a statement. “With our collaboration, the NFL offers a unique take on the iconic football, particularly for women who care about fashion and also love the game.” Tune in to Super Bowl 50 on February 7 at 6:30 p.m. (EST) on CBS.
