Street Style: Flights of Fancy

By Sascha Wolhandler

If you were looking for creative fashion trends, you had to look no further than the annual American Craft Council Show held at the end of every February at the Baltimore Convention Center. 

Dazzling jewels…style refined and opulent…and bold colors all brought excitement and modern twists to classic designs.

Plaid, checked, tapestry and sequined boots took mundane footwear to the next level. 

Stylish eyewear is having its moment. I spotted some heart shaped glasses that would make Elton John swoon. 

If that weren’t enough, topping it all off – HATS!!! They made fascination an art form.

Fun, fanciful fashion took flight!
