Best Bet: Glass-Wear


After watching Michael Kors’s cool-hued, architectural spring collection parade down the runway last month, many showgoers lusted after the finishing touches: clear, chunky Lucite baubles created by Alexis Bittar. This handblown glass necklace by Brooklyn-based designer Jean Pelle lets you flaunt the transparency trend without blowing your budget. Like a modern take on costume pearls, the piece manages to be both chunky and classically pretty. The one-inch glass globes are strung on a clear nylon cord, making for a striking, sheer accessory that won’t overpower your outfit.
