Trend Watch: Bold Chains

By: Erica Delp

Dropping temperatures have many women looking forward to breaking their fall favorites, like boots and jackets, out of their closets. Over the past few runway seasons we’ve seen clothing trends feature interesting “hardware” like exposed zipper detailing, large buttons, and shiny buckles. The trend has given every woman a chance to indulge her inner “tough chick”. To complete your entire look, however, you’ll need some flashy accessories to compliment that moto jacket or those knee high boots.

One great jewelry trend we’re seeing that coordinates perfectly with these looks are large interesting chains with edgy pendants. While this type of pendant is certainly able to stand on its own, the trendy way to wear it this season is layered with other coordinating necklaces of varying lengths. Think about wearing at least one or two other chain style necklaces along with a large focal one. Also, don’t be afraid to mix your metals because that is another trend that is continuing to hold strong. All the better for creating easy mix and match looks all season long. Pair these pieces with some stacking bangles, hoop earrings or a studded cocktail ring and you’re ready to roll!
