The leaves are changing colors, the air feels crisper and, suddenly, it’s time to bring your fall wardrobe out of hiding. Sweaters and autumn’s color palettes provide the perfect backdrop for layering on the seasons chunky trends. This is not the season for demure pieces. Fall 2013 jewelry trends are all about being bold and beautiful. Here’s the latest must-have glam goodies and some tips for taking them from the runaway to your wardrobe.
Dolce and Gabbana merged religious iconography with high fashion during this season’s runaway shows with chunky, gold Byzantine crosses. In either dangling earrings or rosary-inspired necklaces these statement pieces are instant attention getters.
The gold hues warm up neutral backdrops, and glitter when worn again fall tones such as emerald or ruby.
Want to participate in the trend with a bit less impact? Dainty sideways crosses are the perfect way to add the trend to everyday outfits. Kelly Ripa and Kourtney Kardashian have both spotted sporting the look recently.
Though this season’s chunky or sideways styles are unique, cross jewelry never goes out of style. These are pieces that will stand the test of time, even after the fad fades.
Chanel has everyone wanting to join the chain gang this fall. These aren’t the thin chains of yesteryear that are now tangled and knotted in your jewelry box. Today’s chains, like most Fall 2013 jewelry trends, are oversized and designed to make a statement.
To add the look to your repertoire, look for choker length pieces such as the Celine ID necklace that Rihanna rocks. Don’t limit yourself to just one. Chains are meant to be stacked and layered. Try mixing metals such as gold, silver, and even metal and leather braided versions. This heavy hardware isn’t just for necklaces. Look out for chain belts and bracelets as well.
Dior has style well in hand on the runways this fall. Forget less is more. Stacked and layered rings reinforce the rule for Fall 2013 jewelry trends. More is more. Metal bands in gold or silver and bright baubles in saturated hues can be worn anywhere from the base of the finger to above the knuckle. Don’t let that ring finger get lonely. Layer rings on multiple ringers on both hands.
Need a little more style inspiration? Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Nicole Richie are all trying the layered rings look.
Goodbye studs and simple hoops. Thanks to Ralph Lauren and Balmain, oversized chandelier earrings are where it’s at for ears this season. Crystal and transparent versions reflect back the season’s colors. Shoulder-grazing lengths pack the most impact, but slightly shorter styles are equally on trend.
For maximum sparkle, highlight chandelier earrings (and avoid snarls) by pulling hair back. Worried about weight? Though crystal earrings tend to be heavy, plastic versions are lightweight and wearable. Don’t save this trend for special occasions. Chandelier earrings are a fun way to add glamor to casual wear.
Don’t let your lobes get all the attention. Cuff earrings take fashion up a level by wrapping around the ear cartilage and winding downwards. Chloe popularized this punk look on the runways this season.
This fall, try the trend by adding an edgy ear cuff to a feminine frock. The best part is, since ear cuffs do not require a piercing, there is no commitment
