The right jewellery can help enhance any outfit and it can be the fastest way to transition your looks into the new season. Read our round-up of the jewellery trends for Fall/Winter 2014 with these hand-picked jewellery pieces.
Fall fashion pieces call for heavy jewels. This is why jewellery is changing from delicate to opulent as we transition from summer into fall. Oversized chain necklaces, luxe cuff bracelets and intricate chandelier earrings in gold are an eveningwear essential at this time of the year. Modern princesses let their jewellery do the talking, they wear a low-key dress and accessorize it with many different pieces of gold jewellery. Remember that stacking jewellery is still a delicate art form so make sure you do not go overboard.
The snake is a powerful symbol. Last year it made a special statement thanks to the Chinese calendar (yes, 2013 was the Year of the Snake). This is why snake jewellery has been all the rage on the red carpet since 2013. From Jennifer Lopez to Naomi Watts, celebrities cannot resist the charm of incredibly serpentine watches and jewels. Jeweled snakes slither in style on rings, and ear cuffs. On the red carpet, snake necklaces offset exquisite couture gowns.
Summer high temperatures allow women to show more flesh of skin. Those who consider themselves jewellery lovers, accessorize their trendy crop tops with delicate body chains, which usually are wrapped around neck and waist. Handlets and ear cuffs are getting more and more popular too thanks to revival of punk fashion we have seen on Fall 2014 runways. Also, hair jewels appeared at many high-profile events and I bet you loved Jennifer Lawrence’s backlace at the Oscars.
Designer cuffs have been spotted in every photoshoot, red carpet and a fashion show in 2014. Alber Elbaz accessorized Lavin evening gowns with XXL raw metal cuffs which swayed to the rhythm as the models were walking the catwalk. Lavin jewellery may cost a fortune, but there is a stylish cuff bracelet for every girl. Teen fashionistas will love cuffs with dangles and chains, boho chicks will embrace a modern bohemian look with handmade jewel toned arm bands. For the evening, each of us should fashion ourselves to diamond encrusted glamour pieces.
The brighter, the bigger and the bolder. This is how your neckpiece should look like in fall, according to Dolce & Gabbana and Dries Van Noten. Look for pieces embellished with bright, bold flowers that give you an instant ‘wow’ factor. Keep your outfit low-key because this kind of jewellery always takes center stage.
