A trendy, fashionable outfit can quickly go south without accessories (this makes an outfit look absolutely naked) or the wrong accessories (you might as well not leave the house). There are certain trends that are in this season that are not only simple accessories, but they are even affordable too! How does one look like a supermodel without breaking the bank? If you pick up a couple of the following jewelry accessories, you can look fabulous this fall, while saving plenty of money for future holiday expenditures.
A favorite this fall season is the ever-so-versatile arm cuffs. Arm cuffs (bracelets) were all the rage in the 80’s, from neon to various costume accessories and they have made a serious comeback. Stars like Selena Gomez tend to wear the arm cuffs higher up the forearm or even on the upper arm at chest level. Arm cuffs are quite versatile as you can even wear them dangling from the wrists.
What is the comeback difference from the 80’s? For those who want to be fashionable this season, opt for gold or silver verses the popular day-glow colors of 1982. Affordable and popular labels for arm cuff accessories include Statements by DCK, Madewell, Catbird, to name just a few.
On the accessory cuff trend also includes the unquestionably popular ear cuffs. Ear cuffs (think earrings) are the best jewelry earring accessory to bring out that bad biker girl look without having to physically go out and get multiple piercings. Stars like Diane Kruger, Miley Cyrus and Emma Watson have been photographed wearing multiple ear cuffs (think two or three) and this trendy look clearly channels one’s inner bad girl. Affordable and trendy brands include Tomas, Species by the Thousands, Luv AJ and Nasty Gal.
Layers are in, even when it comes to the season’s jewelry accessories, which is apparent by the emerging Midi Ring trend. What are Midi Rings? Midi Rings are multiple stacks of tiny rings that are worn on one finger. This layered ring look is not only easy to pull off, but one can also accessorize with rings that are designed in multiple colors and textures, if they do not want to go for a matching look. Many fashionistas even go so far to practice stacked ring Feng Shui.
Typically, this look is all about balance with four or five matching rings on the first finger, a tall shaped ring on the middle and the balanced look is completed with a short stack of different sized rings on the ring finger. While this may sound complicated, it is actually quite easy to achieve the trendy look. Nasty Gal offers the Midi Rings on the lesser expensive side (retail price $15.00) and brands such as Catbird are on the more expensive side (retail price $195.00), however the Catbird Midi Rings are 14K and come in rose, white and yellow gold.
