With the days already getting shorter, it’s time to draw one season to a close and look forward to the warming trends of fall jewelry. As the leaves turn to vibrant shades of red, copper and gold, these colors are also appearing in our bangles and gems.
Gold is back for fall 2013 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. Gem stones 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.
