Gold is back in all its sultry glory. As far back as ancient Egypt, gold has always been a highly sought-after item. Gold can infuse both comfort and richness to your style and the fall season is the perfect time to add these qualities to your wardrobe.
But just because gold is popular again doesn’t mean you should throw out your silver! In fact, many jewelry experts advise you to wear the “rival” metals together, warm with cool. For example, stack your bracelets, wear earrings that combine the two metals, or combine silver and gold neck chains.
As the air turns cooler, turn to your accessories to warm up your look. Gemstones in beautiful rich emeralds, vibrant reds and shades of bronze and copper add instant glamour to any outfit. Pair a necklace in one of these luminous colours with a black sweater and jeans for a great switch from Saturday shopping to dinner with friends.
Also, don’t just think of metals and baubles as your only go-to accessories. Grab a scarf to pump up the look of a simple outfit. Not only does a scarf look fabulous wrapped and tied in a beautiful knot, it can easily add a hint of color to any staple item in your closet. A scarf is also the perfect weight for those cool autumn mornings, rather than a heavier jacket, and definitely comes in handy in an air-conditioned office or for those after-work errands. Stash one in your glove box or desk drawer to chase away the chills of the autumn days ahead.

MAKE IT ABOUT COLOUR!
Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, scarves and even shoes feature a variety of hues, and effortlessly add colour to your wardrobe.
If you prefer to wear black or navy bottoms, pick up hot pink or sapphire blue sandals, flip flops or pumps to give your basics a lift.
Scarves have evolved to become more than just a cold weather accessory. They are an all year round go-to piece for fashionistas to add style and colour to an outfit. Details like fringe, tassels, fantasy florals or border-print scarves all work for spring.
Jewellery is another fun and fashionable way to add colour. If you’re wearing printed bottoms with a neutral top, add a chunky necklace from the same colour family as the bottoms for a superb look. This look can be dressed down with runners or up with pumps for easy style.
