For fall 2006, jewelry is hot, bold, classic, gold, vintage, rich, refined, elegant, but the one thing it is not is subdued! It will warrant your attention as a very vital part of the fall fashion story. With the dark, rich color story this fall, make jewelry the spotlight of your wardrobe. It is the easiest way to keep your wardrobe from becoming drab or depressing as the darker color tones take over. Fall 2006 jewelry keywords are gold, natural, color, bold, and movement!
Let’s first check out at the metal story! We have been hearing that gold is returning for several seasons now, but this is truly the season where it works the best. Accentuating the rich, darker tones of the clothing, gold imparts luxury and warmth in a way that silver doesn’t. Heavy mirrored cuffs, hammered metal, Yurman-inspired textured items, and tricolor metals are all important looks emerging for fall.
Nature will be the fastest growing influence on the jewelry looks this fall. The wonderful rich colors of semi-precious stones, gemstones, and other natural materials make the color story even more dynamic as they tie together the nature-inspired apparel colors. Mixing metal with these natural materials will segue into a truly bold high-fashion story!
While the fall story is bold, the traditional and classic looks will remain an always important part of the overall jewelry story. Vintage or estate looks will instill a sense of history, especially as we revisit the bohemian Dr. Zhivago era in clothing. When transitioning into the holiday season, we will see jet rise in importance, which mirrors the importance of black in apparel.
Now, we know what jewelry is going to be made of for fall, but which looks and items will be headlining the story? One keyword to concentrate on will be ‘movement’. Chandelier earrings, whether they are cascades of sparkle or clusters of coin-like pieces, all which will move as you move are back with impact! Yes, dramatic chandeliers are back with zeal! Watch the celebrities on TV and in magazines to see that this trend has already reappeared! And earrings won’t be the only movement, as long, long ropes of 48 and 60 inches, worn long or double wrapped as a choker and long, will sway with your steps as you walk! These long ropes will appear in a variety of materials from fine gold chain, pearls, to briolette.
Whether you like your jewelry to tell a bold story or to subtly accent your outfit, fall 2006 will be a fun season to include jewelry as a part of your wardrobe. Make your wardrobe complete with changes of jewelry that can alter an outfit from one look to many looks. If jewelry has not been an important part of your wardrobe, this will be the season to give it a try.
