Dior’s Fall/Winter 2016 Haute Couture show oozed clean, effortless, high-end modernity. The monochrome clothing held its own while the accessories completed the looks in a perfect and effortless way that felt both natural and modern.

With chokers and flat, thong-like sandals featuring prominently in the show, it would seem like the haute revolution we discussed yesterday did not start and end on the Vetements runway, but instead carried through to the second day of couture shows and was reinforced by a brand as historical and influential as Dior.

Read on for the lowdown on Dior’s couture accessories.

The Haute Choker

The house’s answer to the choker craze was at the same time light, airy, and opulent in a way only Dior could pull off. Open in the front and with luscious details falling onto the chest, they are the stuff wish-list dreams are made of. Keeping the rest of the jewelry look bare and free to let the spotlight shine on the statement neckpieces, Dior’s pared-down couture approach suggests that, for Fall 2016, less is more.

Evening Footwear Redefined

Dior’s strongest statement was in the footwear department, where it showcased flat sandals with ankle straps and thong details. Every single look from yesterday’s show was accompanied by the relaxed and pared-down beaded sandals – a style that is undoubtedly chic, cool, and very modern. All hail the return of the comfortable flats.
