Accessories have become not just a perfunctory step in the runway performance, but often the very accents that can bring a collection to life. And this past spring '10 season didn't disappoint. Atomic lucite heels, molten bib necklaces, and pretty woman purses personified the mood of the season: Womanly, strong, and unwaveringly chic. From blown-up bangles to stage-worthy barrettes, check out all the accessories trends that made our headlines.
