Jewelry trends typically take their cues from the red carpet, and fashions for 2011 are no exception. This season’s jewelry is big, bold, and beautiful, making a statement that demands attention in any setting. If you’re looking to add some Hollywood glam to your jewelry box, consider these popular choices for fall.
A cuff bracelet works well with a variety of styles, from chic and casual to evening glamour. Choose your bracelet based on the setting in which it will be worn. For an evening of cocktails and romance, choose a flirty piece in gold or silver with an intricate design. If you’re looking for a bracelet to wear at the office, a more structured piece may fit the bill. Cuff bracelets come in a wide variety of styles and textures, so start shopping to find one that complements your style. You can also stack cuff bracelets with bangles, making an even more personalized statement.
Large gold or silver cocktail rings with flower and animal designs add a bit of bling to a night on the town. Choose rings that include semi-precious or precious stones if your budget allows, since these color options can really make your ring stand out. For a less expensive alternative, copper and bronze rings can also make a beautiful statement.
The right necklace can eliminate the need for other jewelry altogether. You can also complement your statement necklace with an understated pair of stud earrings. Necklaces for this season showcase intricate designs, chunky styling, and multiple layers. Another way to achieve this beautiful effect is to layer several smaller necklaces together, creating your own unique look.
If you like long dangly earrings, this trend will be the perfect choice for your jewelry statement. Jewelry trends this season include chandelier earrings that just graze the shoulder. Choose from rounded shapes or hoops as well as a variety of styles including gold and silver, gemstones, beads, and feathers.
If there’s anything worse than wearing the wrong trend at the wrong time, it’s wearing too many trends together. Remember that each of these options will make a beautiful statement on its own, but piling on too many can look vastly overdone. If you want to wear additional jewelry, keep it small and understated, seeking to complement the statement piece you’ve chosen rather than competing with it.
