Fall jewelry trend guide: A runway report

Aug 07, 2013

Nothing about the jewelry on the Fall 2013 runways was understated. As the climate cools down and you trade your breezy tunics for wool skirts and moto boots, you'll want to update your accessories as well. This fall, baubles are darker, edgier and more eccentric than ever - but don't be intimidated by the bold looks. Just follow this guide to make sure you're on trend:

Chunky Chains
According to Vogue magazine, Karl Lagerfeld revisited an iconic Chanel look by adorning runway models with chains on their necks, wrists and even around their waists. Michael Kors also embraced the trend by incorporating dramatic silver link necklaces, which perfectly balanced out the ebony furs and heavy tweed garments. Chains can give a feminine, frilly frock an unexpected edge. You'll look catwalk-ready in the Hammered-Style Bangle Bracelet In Yellow Gold Tone 9" is perfectly in line with this look, and can be easily layered with other bracelets for added drama. 

Bohemian baubles
Many designers harkened back to the hippie era with their choice of accessories. Etro's models rocked mod chandelier earrings in bright tangerine that looked as if they were straight out of the '60s. Meanwhile, Tory Burch's collection featured oversized sunny yellow necklaces evoked the '70s with beaded fringe. The Multi-Color Crystal Enamel Dragonfly Pin In Yellow Gold Tone to a black blazer and you're bound to turn some heads.

Showstopping chandeliers
Chandeliers are a timeless piece, but the earrings dangling from models' ears in fall runway shows took the style to a whole new level. Vogue likened the glitzy sets in Ralph Lauren's collection to a fusion between Anna Karenina and Les Misérables. Meanwhile, the vibrant fuchsia and other hues in Olivier Rousteing's garments shone through gigantic transparent chandeliers that acted much like prisms, bouncing light in all directions. The Ornate Crystal Scrollwork Chandelier Earrings Platinum Plated have a classic elegance.
