Squaring Off

Designers are in agreement on one thing: it's hip to be square!
The motif finds multiple expression in this Emilio Pucci beaded dress, for purchase at net-a-porter.com. The billowy sleeves are a nice counterpoint to the static design.

Vera Wang keeps it simple, with a single stone embellished square on this silk tie-waist gown. Go to shopbop.com.
Square accessories are also dancing onto the scene!
Couture Carrie is drawn to this LIP Mythic watch because it combines two trends in one: the white timepiece (hello, Chanel!) and the focus on geometric shapes. Note the various circles circumscribed in the rounded square face. Complexity of design meets spareness of color. Available at Barneys New York.




Well, it doesn't get anymore graphic than this: the Pierre Hardy black patent patent heel with flattened white cube adornment. Talk about a square toe! These arty pumps are available at aloharag.com. But perhaps they warrant a trip to the new Aloha Rag SOHO store, inspired by the uber-popular website! (Btw, move fast because they are on sale!)


Another way to wear the trend? On your wrist! CC is crushing on this Yochi square Lucite bracelet, for purchase at ravinstyle.com.
Last, but certainly not least: this adorable Marni satin-framed clutch. Go to net-a-porter.com. Let's bring back the coin purse, y'all!
