With stars like Rihanna leading the gothic, punk style trend and edgy vampires popping up as sex symbols everywhere from Twilight to True Blood, it's no surprise that designers have taken clothing and accessories to the next level. We're seeing metallic studs and points and shiny materials like patent leather and finished georgettes as added details of choice. Reds, blacks and greys are the new backdrops and blood red lips and pale, pale complexions are gracing the runways. One designer to jump on the "sexy-vampire" band-wagon? Dominic Jones. Jones' designs are right on with the current edgy, rocker, "don't get too close or I'll suck your blood" craze, but still makes it his own. Take his black and gold "fangs belt" for example. Black belts are nothing new, but the gold fangs meeting in the middle definitely make it different! The great thing about this belt is that you can wear it to amp up a simple sheath dress and add some attitude into your look, and then lend it to your crazy, over-the-top, super-trendy younger sister to wear over her slashed leggings and oversized tees.Price: Inquire at Dominic Jones for details!Who Found It: idabone was first to add the Dominic Jones "Fangs" Belt to the Hive.
Trust me, even under wraps, your curves have a lot to say in the name of style. A big trend to tap back into this season is thick belts, and not only are they a great way to hide or accentuate what your mama gave you, the mere addition of any belt, especially a thick one, can change the entire look of your outfit. For those of you with a sense of style that changes as often as the tabloids' latest gossip, a big belt can be an economical fix to your ever-morphing expression. Fringe, layers, studs and buckles on these babies are among many different elements to choose from in helping you define what kind of flare you'd like to add to your ever-changing fashion mood.
