TREND: ROSE GOLD

Rose gold has become a pop culture phenomenon. Surprisingly versatile, it complements a wide range of skin tones and styles. No matter your wardrobe choice for the day, it just works. Not many pieces of jewelry have that kind of flexibility. And don’t forget your shoulder dusters. This season’s earrings are all about the drama … the longer the better.

TREND: CORDUROY

The retro fabric from the ‘80s and ‘90s is back with a fresh new take. Corduroy for fall is being applied to every wardrobe staple including shirts, skirts, pants, jackets, dresses and shoes. Cords are basically the velour version of denim, which also means they can be worn with anything. The bonus for wearing corduroy: The velvety texture will help keep you warm in the fall.

TREND: SUITING

The power suit is back, and it’s more versatile than you think. The idea is to bring the suit to a place where business meets pleasure. You can wear it as a power suit buttoned up, ready for business, or you can dress it down for everyday wear, pairing it with a graphic T-shirt and sneakers or booties.

TREND: LAYERING

Length is key to the art of layering jewelry. Layer different length chains to let each pendant necklace have its own moment and shine. A simple gold chain is easy to build upon with more necklaces—whether you want to weave in chokers, pendants or just multiple layered chains. The pinky ring is also a strong jewelry trend. The star signet ring is both masculine and dainty and has shown a colorful past from the Victorian era to mobsters and rappers.

TREND: PATTERN MIXING

Dressing shouldn’t have too many rules, and here is one trend that gives you permission to have fun. You can mash and mix heritage classics, textures and prints.
