How to Pair Jewelry with your Fall and Winter Styles
As the leaves change color and it gets just a tad colder (or a lot colder depending on where you’re located!), it’s time to think about fall and winter outfits! We’re moving away from tank tops and shorts to cozy sweaters and coats, and we’re here for it!
We’ve been seeing some of the fall trends and styles for 2021 that we talked about in our previous post, and excited to see what styles we can incorporate with the current fall/winter season. For this post, let’s take a look at how to accessorize and pair our fall clothing with jewelry!
- Layer with a chunky sweater
There is nothing quite as cozy as a chunky sweater in the fall. It’s an effortless look that transitions perfectly from day to night. Depending on your accessories, sweaters can go from daytime cozy chic to sexy evening glam.
For fall 2021, one of our favorite looks is layering necklaces on a solid-colored chunky sweater.
Sweaters in fall colors such as rust, beige, and brown pair exceptionally well with gold jewelry, and you can mix and match pieces to layer! Pair our chunky chains and pendants for a modern touch on classic combos such as a sweater, leggings, and boots. Or you can go for bold patterns and stripes and layer with simple, minimal accessories. If you’re going out for a night on the town, pair a dark off-the-shoulder sweater and leather leggings with our Two-Tone Double Paperclip Chain Necklace and Double Chain Link Earrings.
Some of our staff favorites for fall layering include the Silver Curb Chain CZ Necklace or Gold Curb Chain CZ Necklace paired with a pendant necklace like the Sunray Round Pendant Necklace. To complete the look, we’d recommend simple studs such as Gold Square Cushion Stud Earrings.
- Dainty sets go with everything this fall
Dainty geometric jewelry can be the perfect addition to outfits to add a bit of (minimal) glam. If you’re bringing out bomber jackets, leather jackets, and shackets this season, pair them with dainty sets for a sleek look. They work great for professional and casual settings, so you can style them in many ways for a versatile look. Add them to work outfits like cardigans, pencil skirts, and stockings, or a fitted wool sweater and slacks.
Our dainty favorites include the Triangle Charm Huggie Hoop Earring, Dainty Triangle Stud Earring, and Dainty Triangle Pendant Necklace. You can wear all three together as a matching set or pick and choose depending on necklines and occasion.
Dainty geometric sets can also be a perfect addition to any simple blouse or t-shirt that you wear under your warm fall and winter outer layer. Try wearing our Hexagon Huggie Hoops and Arrow Chain Necklace with a pair of black pants or skinny jeans for a chic look!
- Let your hands be the focus
Fall clothing can often mean long sleeves and bulky clothing, that’s why it’s a great season to accessorize with rings and add some bling to your outfits.
Rings are the perfect fall accessory since they are subtle but still grab your attention. You can stack rings or wear them on different fingers for maximum impact. Plus, rings can complete the look when earrings or necklaces may not cut it. Or you can mix metals and match your rings to your earrings and/or necklace to dress up the look more.
For fall 2021, we’re gravitating towards rings such as the Asymmetric Open Ring, Curve Bar Ring, and the Ball & Gemstone Infinity Ring. Each ring works on its own, or you can stack them together for a fun look. Our rings go with all colors and styles, adding just the right sparkle to catch attention!
Remember that fall and winter clothing is all about being comfortable and stylish, and your jewelry should reflect that! So when shopping for fall outfits, think about what kinds of colors and styles you’re attracted to. That can help you narrow down the best metal colors for your color palette, and it’ll be easier to shop for jewelry.
