The accessory of the season isn’t a shoe or a bag. Here at Style.com, we’re going with the wide-brimmed hat. Variations on the statement-making topper turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne, and Costume National, but, in our view, the brims to beat are Hedi Slimane’s at Saint Laurent. Since the Spring shows, floppy felt chapeaux have all but replaced fedoras on the street. Recently, we’ve spotted models Miranda Kerr, Tilda Lindstam, and Daiane Conterato wearing them. Elizabeth Olsen is in the fan club, too.

From filmy bra tops to opera coats with the rumpled appeal of bed sheets, there was a delectable boudoir influence at the Spring shows. Channeling Helmut Newton by way of Lillian Bassman, Jason Wu’s slim leather harnesses and corsetry details had editors tweeting “Fifty Shades of Wu.” Still, the overall message was more lady than vamp. Satin slips that hugged the figure in all the right places turned up at Narciso Rodriguez, Rochas, Céline, and Valentino. A handful of times, the spaghetti straps on those numbers fell off the models’ shoulders, but then they’d push them back up again with such come-hither nonchalance, the incidents seemed to have been planned all along. Silky robes at Miu Miu and the Row, and meant-to-be-seen bralettes from Victoria Beckham and Jonathan Saunders rounded out Spring’s lingerie chest.
