Can you hear that? It’s the sound of the leaves turning as the heat of summer finally subsides into the cool breezes of fall. Not a moment too soon, right? With the bright leaves and crisp air come the sophisticated, earthy styles marking this fall’s fashion trends. Rich leathers, classic cashmeres, edgy Navajo prints, and soft feather accents are all up for grabs.
It began this summer with droves of celebrities spotted with turquoise and coral statement pieces mixed in with white jeans and simple tees. But, this timeless stone knows no seasonal boundaries. Fall is flush with the “sky stone,” as it’s know among many Southwest Native American tribes. With its natural blue-green hue, turquoise is quite the eye catcher. The metallic veins that can run through a piece of polished turquoise are natural deposits of aluminum and copper. It’s only natural that turquoise studded jewelry is being paired with the coming season’s Native American inspired looks.
Maybe less expected, is the daintier take on turquoise–polished turquoise doesn’t always have a Southwestern look. Keep an eye out for brides mixing chic turquoise pieces into their wedding day ensemble. It is, after all, something blue.
A modern, but ultra-feminine rose gold accessory can soften your favorite black cashmere sweater, or crisp leather jacket. The ladylike pinkish hue of rose gold is created by an increase in the amount of copper in the gold. Colors can range from a pale pink, up to an intense red. Rose gold’s blush tint is sophisticated and looks soft against any skin tone.
Create a slick juxtaposition of materials by pairing a simple rose gold bracelet with trendy woven leather cuffs–sleek against rugged. For a more feminine finish look for a mixed-metal piece, such as a stack ring that layers rose gold with white and yellow metals.
