A fondness for sparkling trinkets leaves its mark on Fall / Winter styles, as a magpie-like sensibility inspires a range of luxurious appliqued looks, say the trend analysts at Trendstop. A statement trend where more is definitely more, rich embellishments encrust apparel and accessories in the form of shining stones and metallics.
