September 27, 2012 Leave a Comment
With New York Fashion Week September 6 – 13, fashionistas, designers, and fashion bloggers everywhere are all standing by to take notes and let the world know about the unveiling of this season’s hottest trends. We’ve been doing a bit of runway research ourselves, and have gathered predictions of this fall’s most fashionable jewelry looks.
Color Trend: Blue Hue
One of the most prominent colors of the past few seasons, blue will continue to be a must-have color for the fall 2012 season, especially in ultra marine shades. Combining unexpected shades of blue will be an essential styling message for the fall season. The easiest way to achieve this look is with blue gemstone rings, pendants and earrings. Aquamarine, Blue Topazand Sapphire gemstone jewelry will deliver the unexpected pop of color. One of our favorite ways to wear these gems is with your jeans and heels – a tasteful surprise that always turns heads.
Another 2012 jewelry trend worth spotlighting is cross jewelry. This is a fashion look that periodically returns to take center stage. Many fall 2012 runway shows have featured necklines that are perfect for this dramatic statement. We’ve seen models wearing a single bold pendant or multiple layered chains with a cross necklace as the centerpiece of the look. Cross necklaces come in all shapes and sizes, both bold and dainty.
This look has had true staying power for several seasons. This fall, petals, buds and floral arrangements will be seen in rings, necklaces, bracelets and brooches. From Cubic Zirconia encrusted petals to simple flowers, floral jewelry is the perfect way to add a soft, feminine touch to any outfit.
Gold jewelry has been recently highlighted in the media and on the runway ranging from contemporary classics to extravagant pieces. We’re even seeing a trend back toward 18k gold diamond engagement rings. Black and yellow gold, worn together, are the perfect combination and have dominated the runways in Paris, Milan, New York and London for the fall/winter 2012/2013 season. There are so many different ways to wear black and gold together, including simply accenting your little black dress with striking gold jewelry.
