How to Wear It: Tone-in Beads
What a gorgeous cover shot of Jane Fonda, circa 1960. Have a good look at the beads, the way they amplify the colors of her dress, adding tone and texture.
Now consider what Alber Elbaz is doing at Lanvin this Spring/Summer. Simple, isn't it? While you won't be able to find Lanvin's fab bead shapes at a thrift store/charity shop, color toning like this with simple round plastic beads is so easy to do.
