Do you have your fall-to-winter fashion transition down to a T? Have you planned your wardrobe around neutrals with season-appropriate colors ready to go? Maybe you have carefully built up a revolving collection of cardigans that can carry you from leaf-kicking autumn walks to the more serious business of building snowmen on a sunny winter day. Once you reach this point, you may be in a position to face each season confidently, but there is one wardrobe staple that is often overlooked, jewelry. Make sure you are ready for winter with a jewelry collection that can make any outfit sparkle!
Layering the Basics
One classic trend that has stood up to the passage of time is layering, whether that’s with sweaters, coats, or scarves. The shapes and colors may change, but the basics remain the same. Whatever your collection of staples looks like, it is time to add some brooches to your wardrobe. You can stick to the basics here and wear your heirloom pieces on your lapel or scarf or you could wear them on your cuff, mix up the look with several brooches, or choose a design that is completely modern.
Layering Is Here To Stay
Popular jewelry colors this year are found in the yellow, whites, and rose shades – of gold, that is. You can’t go wrong with a bold and beautiful white gold adornment at your shirt sleeve. You’ll be even more up-to-date if you layer together multiple necklaces and bracelets. One expert describes this look at “feminine and glorious”. Your fashion choices should be no less. Whatever your favorites are, get them the attention they deserve by going big and bold or by layering them to achieve more volume.
Go Intricate or Chunky
When you want to talk about wardrobe essentials this fall/winter, you have two great choices: intricate and delicate jewels with a lacy, royal feel or bold and chunky silver necklaces. Both of these styles were plentiful on this year’s runways. Add both to your collection, so whether you are attending a favorite holiday theater event or bundling up for an outside adventure, it will be easy to accessorize.
If you love to embrace the newest fashion trends head on, then the headpiece may be your favorite accessory this year. It’s true that they’ve been around for many years, but this might be the year that this fashion piece really shines. Whether you wear one under a hat or abandon the hat altogether, this year’s vintage-inspired headband is all the rage. From fall and winter brides to college students and serious movie stars, you’ll see headbands with small flowers on a ribbon, delicate tiaras, and pearl ringlets. Choose something a little bit heavier to carry off your winter outfits.
One Single Earring
Another bold fashion move that was popular this year is the single earring. Make it big and dramatic, perhaps pair it with a smaller earring, and you’ll be ready to pull off this new winter trend.
Make It Over-sized and Dramatic
Finally, you’ll find that many of this year’s accessories are over-sized and chunky, like this ring from Milano. Whether you are wearing floral earrings or a chunky tanzanite ring, go big – very big. The rings, earrings, brooches, bracelets, and necklaces are making statements this season. So, go ahead and start with a simple pair of slacks and a basic sweater. Decide whether you need a coat and a scarf or not. Complete the look with your attention-grabbing, oversized, favorite piece of jewelry – and then make it all you.
