Not just reserved for paunchy old men anymore, or burlesque-ish young ladies, the fedora is a brim new timepiece available for everyone to own. Fedoras have long bore many associations including the prior two, but not to forget  is also gangsters and the prohibition, a time that coincided with the height of the hats popularity, the 1920’s to early 1950’s.

Although this can sometimes vary from hat to hat, the hat is typically creased lengthwise down the crown and “pinched” in the front on both sides. The most common colors include black, grey, tan, dark brown and pinstripe variations on the aforementioned.

The most famous wearers of this modern-day crown include Indiana Jones and Michael Jackson but it has also been spotted on starlets like Britney Spears and Kate Moss.

Fedora’s not only grace the streets, they grace the runways, too. Cameos by this hatted henchman include the runways of Gucci and McQueen.

The fiercest fashion statement this spring? Spikes. The cousin to fall’s studs, spikes are lean mean fashion machines. Not just for Motley Crue lovers anymore, spikes have become, dare I say, borderline feminine, even teetering on cute!

Spikes come in all shapes and forms, from bracelets to necklaces to earrings. A spiky accessory is the perfect solution to giving just that bit of edge to an otherwise understated or demure outfit.

At Chicago’s Akira stores, spiked pieces have arrived just in time for festival season, when a sensationally spiky necklace is just the missing piece to some cut-off shorts and your favorite vintage tee.

Last but not least, the spike-wearing rule of thumb? Don’t wear spikes in more than two places at once. Choose earrings and a bracelet, or a necklace and a ring.

On the Fringe

Spring is in the air, and while there’s a bevy of trends hitting our streets from the runways, one of the most significant of those is fringe. Fringe your jackets, fringe your jeans, heck, even fringe your bangs!

Seasoned vets like Saint Laurent, Altuzarra and Fendi all paraded fringed out garments down their s/s 2013 runways. While the aforementioned bunch kept it minimal, Bottega Veneta went so far as to make a dress entirely made from fringed fabric.

Don’t have the budget for a Dolce & Gabbana dress? No problem! You can make this trend your own with a little creativity and just a simple pair of scissors.
