Fall is the time of year when you pull out your sweaters, cardigans, leather pants (or skirts) and boots. It’s also when you can be really creative when it comes to the kinds of jewelry that you decide to accent your cool weather look with.
If you were planning on going with not much more than your hoop earrings and a couple of bracelets, we caught you in just the nick of time! By picking up a couple of these special items, you’ll be quite the fashion plate for fall. (Promise!)
If you don’t own a brooch, you can always go to a department store and buy one. Better yet, try a thrift store. Even better? Ask your grandma if you can go through her jewelry box. She’ll be sure to have a couple that are truly one of a kind and perfect for your turtleneck, blazer or even the brim of your hat.
As far as necklaces go, pendant ones are the way to go. The bigger, the better.
Another classic kind of jewelry is pearls. And as you can see from this particular pair of earrings, you can go with a traditional style or something that is a bit more modern.
Gold cuff bracelet
Who needs bangles when you can wear a stunning gold cuff bracelet such as this one? With it, you won’t need much of anything else.
Tassel earrings aren’t the most typical style of ear wear. But if you decide to give them a try, people will swear that you’re on top of all things fashion. It really is one of the biggest trends going right now.
You may already own a chunky necklace. Now you need to get a chunky one. Just think of how amazing it will look with your favorite sweater.
Fringe is everywhere. On shoes, on purses and even on jewelry. A bracelet like this one will look like you have icicles hanging from your wrist. In the coolest way possible.
Really big earrings
If you have a deep affinity for big earrings to the point that the size is almost obnoxious, this is your time to shine. You can’t go too big right now. Push the limits. We dare you.
Layers of pearls
Aside from a (couple of) pair of earrings, a string of pearls are something that you should add to your collection too. Get a couple of ’em in different colors. Then you can layer them with other (costume jewelry) gems.
Floral cuff bracelet
Floral styles are another really nice look for a cuff bracelet.
Chokers are back. Rather than ribbon or lace though, go with a thick metal kind. It makes such an impression.
Art deco rings
Have you ever been to an estate sale before? If not, get a few of your girlfriends together and go to a couple of them next weekend. You’ll probably stumble upon a few art deco rings—like this one.
Something that would go really well with your new art deco rings? A pair of disk earrings.
Pom pom bracelet
Every year, something happens in fashion that is totally unexpected. Something that goes on the top of the list this year are pom pom bracelets. If you put on one of these, you won’t need much else when it comes to jewelry. Plus, you’ll go the entire day with people asking “Where did you get that?”
80s inspired jewelry
If you’re an 80s baby, you’ll be able to experience what teenagers were wearing when you were still a little tot. 80s inspired jewelry is all over the runways.
You might remember when Janet Jackson wore nothing but a key hanging from one of her ear lobes. Yeah, that trend is back too. This time, you don’t have to wear a key if you don’t want to. Pick any earring style you’d like.
Another take on the whole choker look is a beaded or bejeweled one. It’s really attractive with a formal or semi-formal outfit.
Retro flower earrings
If this picture looks like it’s from the 60s, that’s because it’s meant too. Retro hair and earrings are another look to consider. Especially flower earrings.
Once upon a time, wearing a ton of rings all at once was a bit on the gaudy side. Not anymore, though. Having plenty of them on will adorn your fingers in an impeccable kind of way.
Just one more cuff suggestion: Velvet is always a popular fall and winter fabric. How about adding some vintage lace to a velvet one. It’s so elegant-looking.
Mix and match earrings
Single earrings are not the only way to dress up your earlobes. Try doing a bit of mixing and matching too. Find more new trendy styles on stylesweekly.com!
