The summer sun is nice, but there’s just something exciting about Fall fashions. Maybe it’s that first-day-of-school feeling, whether you’re going back to school or not. Lace-up boots, hats and sweaters…mmm, layer them up and get cozy!
Making a style board is a fun, tangible way to collect your inspiration. Rock it old-school with a bulletin board or pull images together on Pinterest for a creative jumpstart.
Let’s take a tour of some Fall 2015 trends we’ll be seeing and how they’re influencing jewelry making this season:
Triangles, chevrons and arrows are in the spotlight. (And, I can’t stop singing that “Follow Your Arrow” song!) Aztec, Ikat and herringbone prints are all graphic, geometric patterns that are prevalent in fashion and home décor right now. You can feel their echoes in these angular jewelry motifs.
Negative space continues to play a big role in design, like the framed area inside a triangle or the white space between two chevrons. Go minimal with a single element or link them together to create eye-catching jewelry.
The fall color palette is muted this year with gray providing a neutral background for pops of color. Pantone’s Color Report Fall 2015 points out 10 top colors for the season, which include marsala (garnet), biscay (blue zircon or turquoise) and oak buff (topaz). Your birthstone jewelry might be right on-trend.
Fall 2015 is all about layering. Three minimal necklaces, stacks of bracelets or hands full of rings are here to stay. Think about collections of pieces that can be worn together or separately for extra versatility. Lariats are coming back and fit right in with this look.
Earrings in general are getting a lot of attention, from studs to shoulder-grazing stunners. Fashion designers are showing single or mismatched earrings this season, too. You can keep it cohesive by offering two different earrings with the same motif like triangles or botanicals.
