Trend Report: Fancy Finishes

We’ll be the first ones to admit that we’re instinctively drawn to sparkly things, and how could you blame us? Why wear a cocktail dress when it can be an embellished cocktail dress? (Our thoughts exactly.) As such, we were delighted to cull looks from some of the top street style stars like Eleanora Carisi of JouJou Villeroy, Sofia Sanchez Barrenchea, and more, all of which feature clothes with romantic, dramatic embellishments.

​Scroll down to see the best street style fancy finishes, and don’t forget to shop the look!

We understand it’s too hot for outerwear right now, but we must get our hands on this inexplicably cool coat.

Sofia Sanchez Barrenchea
We’ve had a girl crush on Barrenchea for quite some time now, and this charming grass green dress only deepens our obsession. If you’re looking to sport an embellishment in a subtle way, opt for a dress with a sequined collar like Barrenchea’s.

Candela Novembre
We’re appointing Novembre as the official master of fancy finishes, which is why we couldn’t resist including this second outfit of hers, showcasing an emerald, sequin-embellished sweatshirt.
