Four jewellery pieces to get you through AutumnFashion & Lifestyle
This autumn’s accessory market feels particularly busy. There’s a lot going on in footwear, there are all kinds of fun handbags making the rounds, and scarves, gloves, and other miscellaneous pieces have been very prominent in catalogues. But the autumn jewellery market towers above the rest of the accessories in its sheer accessibility.
That is to say that many of the season’s most stylish jewellery pieces are actually very affordable, meaning you really can pick five, or even ten, to make use of in the coming months! These four pieces stand out in particular.
Certainly the most popular and unique statement pieces in this year’s collections, brooches are suddenly everywhere, pinned on to any and all looks. Harper’s Bazaar pinpointed several examples from high-end designers like Calvin Klein and Chanel, so it’s clear that there’s a pricey range for this trend. However, it’s also one that’s easy to go about in more affordable fashion as well. Most any decorative piece that pins on and goes with your outfit will do.
This isn’t a single item, but you can often shop for it as such. In fact, it’s another trend made evident through Lyst’s rings, as well as through many of the necklaces that have been spotted on autumn and winter runways. The idea is simple: stack similar pieces by size to create a set or collection of pieces for a single overarching effect. It’s a brilliant way to turn simple pieces into a united, bold statement.
Quite often, the only elements that make a ring truly stand out are the quality of its metal or gemstone. But for the autumn and winter of 2015, a lot of the most popular rings out there are actually noticeable due to the presence of bold ornaments. Lyst’s selection of rings for the tail end of the year includes a number of pieces that exemplify this trend. Employing basic crystals, carved metal designs, and fake gemstones and pearls, each and every one of them stands out gorgeously without being prohibitively expensive.
Vogue did a whole write-up of the popularity of pearls this season, and we’re not just talking about standard mid-length pearl necklaces. Rather, these little jewels of the sea are appearing on a range of pieces, including earrings, ear cuffs, bracelets, rings, and even a few unusual facial pieces that don’t fall under the umbrella of conventional jewellery. And this is yet another type of piece that you can enjoy on a budget, because faux pearls are every bit as much fun as the real thing.
A piece in each of these categories will certainly make for a lovely collection for the end of the year. It’s a very playful season for jewellery, so take full advantage!
