What’s Trending in Jewelry?: Fall 2014

Written by: Sue Fritz | | Jewelry

Ahh it’s here, sweater weather. Cooler weather and autumn hues are all around as fall is officially upon us. As you begin to break out the cardigans and tights, one of the best ways to add some fall flavor to your outfit is through your jewelry and accessory choices. Not only fun to shop for, jewelry can provide a wardrobe pop true to the season.

Statement Rings

Bold, chunky rings are in for fall. With awe-inspiring gems and a personality all their own, statement rings are ruling the runway. With so many options to choose from, pick a piece that works with jeans and a t-shirt or a killer cocktail dress.

Whatever your style, find your own way to incorporate the idea behind each of these trends to create your own interpretation of fall fashion. Your jewelry shouldn’t just be reflection of what’s hot right now, rather you should buy pieces that feel like you and work with your wardrobe. One last note, think about avoiding protruding clasps and sharp edges on the pieces you buy, as they have a tendency to snag sweaters!
