As you enthusiastically add anything plaid to your fall style Pinterest boards, don’t forget to collect some new treasures for your jewelry box. While we usually take any excuse we can to don bold statement pieces, fall’s the perfect time to accent with subtle necklaces and simple bracelets to let your outfit steal the show. Here are our top five jewelry trends for fall that are sure to be the pumpkin spice to your latte.
This is the season when more really is more — don’t be afraid to wear necklaces, bracelets and rings. Multi-strand necklaces in varying necklines keep it interesting without having a single focal point that usually comes with a statement necklace or pendant, while wearing multiple rings on the same hand is the easiest way to make your go-to knit top and denim combo instantly trendy. Avoid looking too matchy-matchy with a simple band and gem on one finger, a larger geometric style like intersecting circles on another and add a few single bands in simple patterns stacked on a third. Don’t forget to add a wristful of bangles, keeping them all in the same color family to avoid accessory overload.
2. Frosty Pastels & Earth Tones
Don’t panic—the only frost we’ve got in our forecast is the pretty palette of pastels we get to wear before the actual snow starts to fall. Shades of cream, peach and rose are grounded with earth-inspired browns, tans and olives. From gem-studded necklaces with varied shades and shapes to structured cuff bracelets, this is one color palette we’ll wear whenever we can.
3. Delicate Details
This season, it’s all about making a statement — but that doesn’t mean you have to go big to be bold. Go minimalist chic with dainty gem necklaces, thin bangles and slim watches. Textured bangles are as eye-catching as a chunky cuff, and delicate cut out rings are more subtle than a colossal cocktail ring. Plus, these muted accessories let your boots be the star of the show without looking overly styled.
4. Rose Gold
While gold has long been the star of fall accessories, this year our signature metal gets an added dose of blush with the chic and feminine rose gold. Gorgeous in a statement ring or even a precious pendant necklace, this magnificent metal will have you feeling pretty in pink all season long and works wonders with just about any style, whether your fashion feeling is more preppy, glam or edgy.
5. Mixing Metals
When reaching for your jewelry, it’s easy to dedicate an outfit to a single metal — silver goes with silver and gold goes with gold, right? Well, there’s never been a better time to start breaking all the (fashion) rules. Mix gold and rose gold bangles on the same wrist, or layer a rose gold necklace with a silver one. The trick to looking like you intentionally remixed your wardrobe is making sure you’re wearing different metals in the same style — a silver necklace and a gold ring read more eclectic but hey, you do you.
