Fall Jewelry Trends to Try Now

When a girl is feeling less-than-festive, a beautiful piece of jewelry is all she needs to give her wardrobe that kick-in-the-seat it needs. Fall's runways were chock-a-block with exciting—but wearable—jewelry trends that work for summer, too. From statement jewelry that'll liven up a black T-shirt to an earring style that you haven't thought about for awhile, these are the bits and baubles to start adding to your jewelry box.

Chunky Filigree—A new trend popping up on the fall runways was the ghost of statement jewelry from seasons past: Take the wild curves and oversized shapes from last year and boil them down to pure form, and you've got a fresh spin on head-turning jewels. We like nearly 2D curlicues in a wild color.

Hang Long—Maxi-dresses are definitely having a moment, but why should they hog all the fun? Extra-long duster earrings are sure to turn heads. Go on, dust your shoulders off!

Neon Brights—Neon is the trend-du-jour for spring, but take it over to the jewelry department and you'll end up with eye-popping pieces that will look great with heavy neutrals in fall and winter.

Botanica Goes Bronze—Florals aren't exactly new news in fashion, but they're shaking up the jewelry box with this new take that gives branches, flowers, and leaves a makeover straight out of the Bronze Age. Go for ornate pieces that teeter just on the edge of gaudy in a good way.

Architectural Chokers—These necklaces will have you cursing the day you threw out all the chokers you collected during your Spice Girls phase in the '90s. From delicate chains to hard-core metal cuffs that balance on your collarbone, chokers add serious style cred to any wardrobe.
