From flats to handbags, heels to belts, the biggest trend in accessories this fall is patent leather. The super-shiny material was huge all spring and is going to stay that way into 2008.
Although some prefer patent on jackets and other articles of clothing, I recommend college girls stick to patent accessories only. Too much shine in one outfit and you’ll end up looking more futuristic-raver than trendy chic.
How to wear this trend: Pick up some super-shiny patent leather flats to spice up your everyday going-to-class look, rock some PL mary janes with a mini dress and tights for a night out, or simply invest in a basic patent-leather tote to carry everywhere.
