Fashion Month is drawing to a close, which means we’ve seen plenty of trends, much ridiculous street style, lots of famous people–you know, the usual Fashion Month works. By now we’ve had enough time to sift through the thousands of photos to bring you a selection of some very amazing (but often completely crazy) jewelry as seen on the runways in New York, London, Milan and Paris. Here are the biggest and boldest necklaces, bracelets, cuffs and, uh, headgear from Fashion Month–”statement jewelry” is putting it lightly. More
There were a lot of trends on view at NYFW this past week: from obvious Spring choices like pastel colors and bright citrus shades to (possibly unrealistic?) all white ensembles and graphic handbags (along with much maligned trends we’d love to see go away forever like peplums and crop tops).

Here at The Gloss, we tend to shy away from the too-common bullying language of many fashion publications–5 Designer Items You Need Right Now! 5 Bags Everyone Will Have!, etc–because it’s unrealistic and obnoxious (no one needs a designer anything, for one).
However, for those of you who like following fashion but feel no obligation to spend a month’s rent on a damn handbag, one very easy way to translate the runway to your regular old wardrobe is with color. By incorporating the season’s biggest shades–whether through recycling stuff you already have or buying something new–you’ll achieve roughly the same effect as wearing trendy, eye-catching (and super expensive) runway pieces. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing. More
It always feels a little weird for summer to end, for fall to gear up and… here’s the fashion press all agape at bright prints on the Spring runways. Spring is the time for prints, of course, and non more than the floral variety, but here’s the current twist on a season-standard: Hawaiian. Yes, the formerly dorky print of choice for stoner Dads and hungover frat bros is getting revamped this season as something a little more downtown. Opening Ceremony wins this round for being so far ahead of the curve. More
