City Pulse

By Jennifer Oluwole

With so much going on this season it seems almost impossible to find a trend worthy enough to add to the ever growing Spring shopping list. Call it tough love but our current obsession is as naughty as it is nice (depending on the placement). Whether they are for functional purpose or there just for the hell of it zippers are popping up everywhere this season. From bags to dresses to shirts and accessories, were finding this staple hardware piece on almost anything worth adding to the collection.

It was lust at first sight when I spotted these Alexander Wang high waist white jeans with zippers running completely up the sides. You can pair these with a plain t-shirt and sky high heels and be on your way.

If your looking to jazz things up at that next rooftop soirée this Spring, try this extremely detailed winding zipper dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim and you will for sure turn heads in every direction.

If you’re not ready to take the plunge into full on zipper gear, take baby steps with a handbag covered in zipper accents or a gladiator sandal with a bit of attitude courtsey of zippers.
