Fall fashion is back and it's time to layer up in the season’s stylish and cozy looks. Many of this fall’s trends are focused on creating fresh combinations of classic pieces you probably already have in your closet, like leather jackets and all-things denim. Of course, there are also new styles hitting the scene, so those who want to liven up their fall wardrobe with something novel have plenty of options to choose from. Below, we’re showing you how to style all of the season’s biggest fashion trends and sharing which fall jewelry trend pairs best with each.
Fall Florals + Pearls
Florals are usually more a spring trend, but this spring staple is in full bloom for fall 2021. In fact, there are two types of florals trending this season. There are the rich, moody florals we saw all over the jackets, trousers, skirts, dresses, and tops of the fall runways. Then, there are the cottagecore-style tiny floral dresses that have been popular in online spaces all year long.
Our favorite fall jewelry trend to pair with fall florals is white pearl jewelry. White pearls have a bright, lustrous quality that looks absolutely lovely with dark florals and muted tiny florals. For a cute fall outfit that combines both of these trends, style a floral midi dress with chunky ankle boots and a pearl station necklace.
Beige Tones + Yellow Gold Hoops
One of the most elegant fall style trends is the beige tones trend. This trend is all about limiting your outfit to colors within this specific tonal family. You can wear all one color or mix related tones. Pair a gorgeous cream coat with a cocoa brown sweater, beige trousers, a suede clutch, and creamy white heels. It’s a warmer interpretation of an all-white outfit that perfectly suits the cozy vibe of the fall season.
Yellow gold jewelry looks stunning with this warm and classic trend. Medium to large yellow gold hoops will add fashionable flair to a tonal fall look, while yellow gold stackable rings will add pretty detail.
Denim on Denim + Silver Jewelry
This year’s fall fashion is heavily influenced by Gen Z interpretations of early 2000s fashion. One of the results of this is a denim on denim revival. Canadian tuxedos are back, as are many other all-denim looks. You’ll find everything from denim button-downs to denim maxi dresses on store shelves this season.
The denim layering trend pairs very well with one of this fall’s biggest jewelry trends: silver toned jewelry. Cool-toned metals look amazing with blue denim and the combination also happens to be very Y2K. Think Britney and Justin’s iconic all-denim outfits at the 2001 AMAs.
The type of white gold, platinum, or sterling silver jewelry you want to pair with your denim on denim look may vary depending on how you rock the blue jean trend. Some fail-proof options that will work with virtually any outfit include silver-toned statement rings and hoop earrings.
Cozy Knits + Fringe Earrings
Embrace that fall feeling by slipping into the season’s trendy cozy knits. Luckily for those who love comfort, knits are trending in numerous fashion categories this season. The on trend knit pieces for this fall include sleeveless turtleneck dresses, midi skirts, bell-sleeved tops, bustier tops, flared pants, wrap skirts, and cardigans-as-tops.
Cozy knits of all kinds look amazing with fringe earrings, one of the freshest jewelry trends of fall 2021. Metal fringe earrings look incredible with knits thanks to their edgy quality and contrasting tone. Metal fringe earrings can dress up a more casual look or add playfulness to an upscale autumn outfit. Wear them with a long-sleeve sweater dress and knee-high boots, trousers and a turtleneck sweater, or a cashmere cardigan and leather pencil skirt.
Flares + Long Necklaces
Flared pants, a 1970s staple, are back in a big way. While flares were popularized in a decade in which more was more, this fall’s best flared pant outfits are more on the subtle side. Flared trousers or blue jeans look incredible when worn with a simple white t-shirt or one of this season’s cozy knit tops.
Long necklaces, a huge fall jewelry trend, are a great complement to the oversized shapes and softness of 1970s style. Throw on a long chain necklace and a bracelet or two, and head out the door looking groovy and polished.
Tailored Leather + Sparkly Statement Earrings
Another 2000s-inspired fashion trend for fall is Matrix-esque tailored leather. Long black leather trench coats are having a moment, but they’re not the only structured leather on the fall fashion scene. Other trending pieces include oversized leather jackets, leather blazers, leather trousers, leather button-down shirts, leather evening dresses, leather pencil skirts, leather mini skirts, and pleated leather skirts.
The texture of leather and faux leather looks amazing alongside the most dazzling fall jewelry trend. Sparkly statement earrings have made a splash early this year, far ahead of the holiday season. We love sparkly earrings styled with leather dresses or leather outerwear, as well as with leather and knit combinations, such as a leather pencil skirt with a sleeveless knit sweater top. Finish off the look with leather booties or classic heels and you’re ready for the fall party circuit.
