No matter what the occasion, jewellery can be a superb way to bring your outfit to life and make a fashion statement.
With any change in the seasons, new fashion trends come and go. The latest fashion shows have showcased the styles for Autumn Winter 2014, so we at Joshua James decided to take a look at what the key jewellery styles will be during this period.
(Note: At the end of the post you’ll also find a bonus link to some great AW14 fashion and style tips from 14 of the country’s top fashion bloggers.)
Here are some of our key styles for this autumn and winter…
One of the best trends for this season will be in bringing simple outfits to life with accessories. Moreover, layers are the way to work it, with simple stacking rings being combined for a luxe look. Pandora and Thomas Sabo stacking rings remain the fashionable choice for layering.
And don’t forget that you can also wear several necklaces together to add further depth to your attire. Remember; layers are great for jewellery, not just clothing.
As well as plain stacking bands, rings can also be used to bring a vibrant flash of colour to your style. Many jewellery pieces come adorned with stones and gems, and these can not only be great for creating stylish colour matches, but also for sentimental pieces inspired by birthstones and zodiac signs.
Crystal embellished jewellery is once again a key player, providing an extra dimension and an additional sparkle to any occasion.
Choker necklaces, bold cuffs and bangles, chunky designs, colour. Charm bracelets are also great for creating an individual look, allowing you to customise your jewellery and accessories.
The coloured beads and intricate silver and gold charms from brands such as Pandora, Thomas Sabo and Trollbeads make for some really fun statement bracelets. Endless Jewelryis another brand that has exploded onto the scene with its vibrant coloured leather bracelets and vast array of sentimental yet fashionable charms.
Ever popular on the catwalks and the streets, rose gold continues to be a popular trend for AW14. Its beautiful pink-orange hue lends itself perfectly to the natural colours of the autumn season, making it a highly sought after material for jewellery around this time of year.
Further to rose gold’s prominence in the autumn/winter style stakes, silver and gold are also being sported in interesting ways. Mixing metals is a different twist on traditional styles. Either mix and match rings, necklaces and bracelets, or try incorporating gold beads with silver bracelets for a unique look.
This style matches perfectly with the clashing textures and colours that have been spotted on the catwalks of fashion shows around the globe this season.
From simple gold hoops to yet more statement pieces, earrings are enjoying a central role in the style trends this autumn and winter. In particular, mismatching pairs of earrings are popular, and even single statement earrings are being seen.
