Harness-Style Jewelry is the Best Thing You Don’t Own Yet

When it became clear that the leather body harness was one of Spring 2013's breakout trends, I had to scratch my head and wonder if I (or anyone for that matter) would be attempting to pull it off in real life. Part of fashion journalism fun is parsing a look from runway to real-way, and this was an innovation that I wholeheartedly wanted to embrace — literally and figuratively. But let's face it, for any girl on a real life budget, a leather harness from Versace wasn't in the cards, nor do we all live near a Versace store. But there's another way to incorporate this tough-chic style into your look. Harness jewelry is hitting the chicest stores, promising to add a new edge to your favorite going out looks. Here are a handful of pieces you can pick up right now and wear not only during spring and summer, but take with you well into the latter part of the year.
