Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week Trends: Harnesses


(BCBG, Hervé Léger, Jason Wu, Mandy Coon)

Last season, before the 50 Shades of Gray craze, Lubov Azria shocked fashionistas by accenting Hervé Léger dresses with harnesses in the label’s fall collection.  Clearly other designer’s took note. For spring, feminine lace and conservative sheaths got a dose of sex appeal with leather accents. It’s remarkable how one accessory can completely change a look.
