Fall Jewelry: Colors and styles you will want to wear

The ready-to-wear trend cycle is a tricky beast, but jewelry is entirely different. Beauty accessories are more personal, intimate, and less likely to oscillate from one fashion trend to the next. So, it’s a delicate balance for jewelry brands to parse out future accessorization without losing sight of the current trends. When it comes to seasonal jewelry trends, many designers operate from within to choose what’s next.

We are likely to see chunkier jewelry formats evolving beyond the chain-link necklace this fall season. For example, the statement earring à la Schiaparelli is quickly gaining popularity, signaling a future filled with flora and fauna. After all, who doesn’t adore the joy animals and flowers bring? Overall, here are the top jewelry trends to keep tabs on this fall: Continue reading Fall Jewelry: Colors and styles you will want to wear
