You dug out your turtlenecks from storage and dusted off your preferred ankle boots. Heck, you even steamed a few scarves. You’re totally autumn-ready…but how about your baubles? From thick hoops to serpentine rings, this fall’s crop of jewels will probably be worth the hype. Here are exciting ways to rock your accessories this year.
Our delicate earrings are going for a back seat this season to create way for their sturdier counterpart: the thick gold hoop. Hailing back again to the late ’80s and early ’90s with famous brands hip-hop royalty, these bigger, more substantial versions of jewellery feel like an ideal, everyday throwback.
Long Rope Necklaces
First, our earrings stretched to shoulder-skimming proportions with colored tassels and layered tufts. Now, our neckwear is following suit. Get ready for chunky ropes and cords to take this year’s maximalist jewellery trend to new lengths.
Fortunately, delicate gold bands jewellery are still going strong, but this new crop of finger bling adds some old-school flair. Think: oversize stones and thick metal bands that grab attention all by themselves—or while layered in together with your favorite thread-like ones.
All hail the explosion of serpentine motifs which have slithered their way in to our closets and now our jewelry chest, too. Winding ear cuffs and coiled rings get this to reptilian trend as playful as it is gothic, and we’re seriously on board.
Nearly a bracelet and not a significant ring, hand chains—inspired by exotic locales—have made their way in to the mainstream. The thin metal loops are worn around both the wrist and a finger, and draw focus on the slender backs of your hands. And we dare you never to feel like Cleopatra while rocking one.
