What is the best thing about fall? Some would say the chilly weather, some would say the cutesy outfits and some would say the fall colours. If you ask us, we’re fans of all but what we like more is the jewelry that we get to embrace against those layered clothes dipped in neutral hues.
In this post-lockdown-pandemic era, the jewelry styles have been tipping between two ends — minimal charm and flashy maximals. When at home in loungewear, pared-down jewels bag the winning vote but out and about calls for an ostentatious display and rightly so, right? After more than a year at home in slouchy PJs, comfort-dressing has become non-negotiable. So how do you then elevate your look whilst maintaining the simplicity of an outfit? Enter jewelry! The fall/winter 2021 runways veered to a similar if not the exact vibe. Jewelry that made a statement, jewelry that gave joy and jewelry that was nothing but fun!
So without further delays, here’s your rundown on the season’s best trends and similar demi-fine options to experiment with.
Throwbacks are easily the most effortless way to have fun and flash your style skills and fashion knowledge. This season give classic strings of pearls, fringe earrings and chokers a try (apart from Y2K that is) but make sure they come with hints of precious or semi-precious gemstones! Take inspiration from the likes of Saint Laurent, Etro and Alessandra Rich.
Not like silver jewelry was a no-go in any season but the fall/winter 2021 runways embraced its allure in all its glory. Spotted were both minimal and maximal styles but we’re particularly eyeing the styling by Toga, Mark Fast and Isabel Marant. Statement-making but classy!
If you’ve been putting off the idea of playing around with mismatched styles, let the looks from Arthur Arbesser, Sacai and Jason Wu’s fall 2021 collections give you the push to try it on! What is jewelry if not the most talked-about element of an outfit? And if you’re convinced, begin your experimentation with modest demi-fine earrings from our picks below.
Chained to chain link
Not much to say here apart from the fact that absolutely no one can get enough of chain link jewelry. Lariats, earrings, rings, anklets, you name it and we love it! So unless you’ve been living under a rock, don’t forget to link yourself to chain link bijoux!
Sometimes, solo is better
Ever lost a single earring and cried about it? Well, you can go ahead and wear the one you have solo because, well, the fashion gurus themselves have given you the cue to. Sometimes, just sometimes, a little quirk is all you need to liven up the mood, outfit or even a conversation if you know what we mean!
Cop one or all the trends, the jewelry mantra this season is to not hold back at all! So which one will be your pick? Tell us in the comments below.
