Still, we're excited to celebrate with the Accessories Council and all the big prize holders at tonight's 17th annual ACE Fashion Awards at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

The glam-rock aesthetic of Alexis Bittar has gone more high-end than ever before with the announcement that the jewelry designer is debuting Alexis Bittar Fine, a collection of earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets made of precious stones like diamonds and sapphires. While prices soar to the $16,000 mark, it's not exclusively for the extra-deep-pocketed — a pair of drop earrings can be found for just under $400.

Leave it to designers like Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, and Dries Van Noten to turn everyday bugs into works of art. Paying homage to bees, beetles, wasps, and flies, we have proof that bugs can actually make for chic adornments. We're buzzing over: Alexis Bittar's dragonfly cuff bracelet, Marni's colorful abstract insect brooch, Delfina Delettrez's honey bee studs, and Kenneth Jay Lane's shimmery ladybugs. Ready to make a stinging statement?
Not for the timid, transparent accessories are all about showing off what you have — literally. With a nod toward the '90s, designers like Alexis Bittar, Charlotte Olympia, and 3.1 Phillip Lim have reworked the throwback trend via modern, see-through jewelry, accessories, and handbags that will add a fun twist to any warm-weather look. Stack your wrists in Lucite bangles, make a statement with a neon-tinted plastic clutch, or don clear sandals for instantly longer legs.
Straight from the Spring 2013 runways of Burberry Prorsum, Chanel, Gucci, and Stella McCartney, we're loving the clear detailing on these accessories. Lucite clutches, as seen on Solange Knowles and Sophia Bush, are perfect for night, while clear details on Christian Louboutin shoes make your legs look endless.
