If it’s one thing true Southern women know, it’s fashion. And while pearls are always in style for women from Huntsville to Tuscaloosa to Mobile, why not consider adding a little extra flair? This fall mix up your look with bold pieces, simple pieces, or both!
For the bold:
· Big and Bright
While the rich colors of the harvest may be just around the corner, the vibrant colors of summer still reign in the world of jewelry. Trending now are large multi-colored crystals paired against each other or with vibrant contrast bands.
JCrew’s ombre crystal statement necklace features clusters of crystals that gradually move from creams to teals then pinks to greens and deep blues.
For even greater pop, the JCrew leather brulé bracelet showcases a host of rainbow sheen crystals on the backdrop of a fluorescent yellow leather band.
If you’re feeling extra daring, ditch the “pair” and go with a now-trending runway look of a solo stud or drop earring.
For the understated:
· Bunches of Bangles
Another trend making it big is the bangle. Wear one simple bangle or load up and mix and match them. Find Kendra Scott’s cuff bracelet series at Nordstrom, or for a finer piece, check out Tiffany’s infinity knot cuff.
· Long Pendant Chains
The retro long chain and pendant are big this fall. Get out an old thin chain or check out the y-chains at Nordstrom. Chan Luu’s beaded double strand is a favorite.
For the classical:
· Pearly Whites
The surge in pearl popularity (finally the rest of the world gets it!) lets you break out your strands in grand fashion. Twist them together to wear them in new ways or find a pearl brooch or hair piece to accessorize with.
· Bring the Brooch
Brooches are not just what you found in your grandmother’s jewelry box. They are coming back full force with Prada, Chanel, and Calvin Klein—in metals, flowerets, and organic shapes. Find one to dress up your fall cardigans, jackets and sweaters. And really, let’s face it: Women of Alabama, we almost all have a special family heirloom brooch tucked away in our lovely, monogrammed jewelry boxes, do we not? Time to show it off!
