Greetings and salutations readers, we hope you all had a glorious long weekend. But enough with the pleasantries, because the Stone Age is upon us and there's lots to discuss. Don't worry, we're not going to lecture you about Paleolithic tools (as interesting as that may be), but rather what you should buy now-anything with large stone embellishments.
As seen on the Marc Jacobs, Burberry, and Max Mara runways, sizable stones are part of the season's romantic retro look. If you're feeling bold, you can search for a piece like this bejeweled Burberry top (above, far right). If that garment is a little over the top for you, look for accessories like this black silk, crystal embellished Miu Miu clutch, above, $550, www.net-a-porter.com. It's a very wearable way to incorporate this style into your wardrobe.
Another great thing about this trend is that pieces are available at every price point. If buying Sienna's Burberry bag will leave you on a ramen diet for the rest of the month, snag a few of these super-sized bracelets, $4.80-$8.80, www.forever21.com or a pair of saucy sandals, about $68, www.topshop.com. And if you need a smidge more inspiration, just think about the words of one of our favorite modern day poets, Bob Dylan, "Everybody must get stoned." Indeed.
