As balmy summer nights fade into crispy autumnal mornings it’s time to switch your wardrobe over and bid farewell to summer. And whilst you’re at it – don’t forget to do an audit of your jewellery collections. After all, the pieces you’ve been wearing all summer isn’t necessarily going to work with your winter woollies.
So how do you stride into autumn with style? We can tell you exactly how!
Autumn style tips to up your jewellery game
At Jewel Tree London, we seek inspiration from the natural world for many of our designs. So (naturally!) this includes the changing seasons.
Drawing on our appreciation for this enchanting time of year, here are our top autumn style tips to celebrate the seasonal switch.
Choose autumnal hues and tones
Let those fiery hues of autumn direct your style – in terms of clothes, make-up and jewellery. As the leaves turn all shades of red, copper, and gold – seek inspiration from these rich, warm colours.
Gold jewellery will flatter this time of year. As will naturally stones in colours that will make you feel toasty – such as red onyx, rubies, citrine and topaz. Pick yourself out a gold vermeil necklace with a pendant that you can rely on all season and coordinate with the rest of your collection.
Keep things casual
Sandwiched between the season of summer dresses and garden parties, and the festive party season, autumn is your season to take a pause. This season’s clothes value comfort and curating an effortless look.
Apply the same approach to your jewellery. Perhaps that’s earthy tones, geometric shapes, a simple gold vermeil necklace or a sprawl of beads that you can team with a tousled bun. Choose jewellery that makes you feel comfortable and at your best – ready for whatever this transitional time throws at you.
Make a statement with earrings
As you’re wandering the streets bundled up in your layers, your ears will be your most exposed feature. In which case, autumn is the perfect time to play around with statement earrings.
Consider drop styles, large hoops, bold shapes, and bright colours. Any style that you’ve not experimented with yet – this is your moment. Team them with hair that’s left in its natural form or with a hat for maximum impact.
And don’t forget the hottest trend of the year; the solo statement earring.
Add some seasonal sparkle with rings
Whilst you clutch a pumpkin spice latte and watch the leaves fall in the park, add some sparkle to your fingers. We love stackable rings at this time of year.
You can play around with different bands from your collection. Dig out rings you’ve not worn for a while and give them a new lease of life. Or, treat yourself to a few new pieces.
Layer long necklaces for a cosy look
As the temperatures drop, necklines rise. Autumn is all about turtlenecks, jumper dresses, and chunky knits. From an accessories perspective, this calls for long sweeping necklaces like lariats, opera lengths and eye-catching pendants. They look magical with high necklines.
Reflect those sensational autumnal shades we mentioned and choose a warming gold vermeil necklace as your foundation for this trend.
Add a touch of twinkle
It’s not quite party season yet. But it’s close enough! For special occasions during autumn such as a first date, anniversary or birthday, pull out your sparkle. That way when you glide out of your coat and scarf, you’ll make a glamorous entrance.
And by day? Add a splash of glitter to brighten a damp day – such as gleaming stackable rings with a touch of twinkle.
We love rose gold at any time of year, and autumn is no less. Rose gold coordinates exceedingly well with black, so if you are constrained by what you can wear in your place of work – rose gold may be your solution.
Weave in a forest vibe
As we said, we take a pinch of inspiration from the natural world. Among our jewellery collections, the Forest set in particular celebrates nature. These textured creations provide a sensory experience which pairs perfectly with the shift in seasons when we crave warmth and cosiness. You can browse all our designs online at Jewel Tree London.
