When one can't afford diamonds, then it might be said that accessories are a girl's best friend. Just a few new bits and baubles can produce a wardrobe update, and keep your basics feeling fresh. When we're in need of inspiration, one of the best places to go is straight to fashion's source: the runway. From bags and jewelry to shoes, hats and belts, this summer season is all about texture, shape and sparkle. Designers created a girl's fantasy world, reimagining old standbys and keeping an eye to the future with some pieces that Jane Jetson would no doubt be proud to call her own. See what we mean by peeping the best high fashion accoutrements.
