Item of the Day

You heard it here first: stingray is the new python.

Well, maybe this stealth oceanic dweller won’t totally replace our scaly reptilian friends, but we’re seeing more and more authentic stingray skin pop up on accessories these days, and it’s looking very fresh and very new. Plus, it takes color well and is a perfect way to add texture and pop for the ever-present color-blocking trend.

These collar necklaces by Nissa are a double wow because they capture both our new stingray obsession and collar trend. And if this is too bold for your neck, the company has a whole line of metal cuffs with colored stingray color blocks.

If you haven’t already noticed, we have a fondness for collars this fall.
