Trending: Metal-Mesh Handbags

Make way for metal, mesh and gunmetal gray! Although pastels and neutrals have been getting a ton of press, gunmetal glam accessories are the perfect way to balance out all the girly-girl florals and frills in your closet. Take a break from boho, and even the seventies vibe, with some accessories that belong to our decade. Polished, yet just a little bit punk, any woman can get the modern edge with one or two well-chosen accessories. Simply slip a mesh-lined bag over your arm, add a chunky chain necklace to a shift dress, or wrap a studded belt around your waist. We suggest one of these fabulous pieces from BCBGMAXAZRIA, an excellent source for all things gunmetal glam:
