Fall Style: Accessories to add a pop of color

Sunday, October 30, 2016 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Ok, yes I know summer is long past - although Mother Nature has been teasing us in Chicago with this unseasonably warm weather - and that means it's time for deep fall hues. Yet, in the city of big shoulders, where neutrals, black and gray are our go to colors for fall, I think adding a pop of brights to your look is a breath of fresh air.

A really simple way you can do this, without going overboard - is by incorporating bold hued statement making accessories into your look. Depending on the occasion, pair a simple look with a bold necklace for a night out or add some boho flare for a more casual vibe. If you're wearing your hair styled up - add some beautiful drop earrings that are daring. Your options are endless. Here are some of my top picks for fall.

First up, are these innovative statement necklaces from the brand: Necklettes. These pieces aren't your average necklaces, rather the founders of the brand saw a problem and vowed to solve it. Necklettes are blinged out necklaces without a chain that attach to any garment and lay flat across the neckline held by two strong magnets. They were created to replace bulky statement necklaces that often don’t sit correctly. Necklettes stay in place and create the look of built-in bling as they appear to be part of your outfit. These chic pieces of bling can beautifully dress up a simple plain tee, or add some much needed color to a simple black button up. The necklaces are lightweight enough that they keep your tee in place, but the magnets are strong enough that you don't have to worry about the necklaces falling off halfway through your day.

Check out this fun how to created by the Necklette team that goes over exactly how to use and style your Necklette.

When it comes to accessories, you can dress them up or down. Have fun, don't be afraid to experiment and create your own personal style. Layering is a great way to play with texture and color. Bracelets are a simple way to experiment with layering your accessories. Color coordinate different types of bracelets, mix and match styles or finishes for a boho chic vibe. Gold and Gray is another wonderfully playful accessory brand that can help you mix up your look.

Gold & Gray is a jewelry line that effortlessly fuses a bohemian beach spirit with an unexpected urban edge. Each gold & gray design is inspired by and reflects the natural beauty of the ocean and the mountains of the eternally sunny, Los Angeles. Designer, Lily also pulls inspiration from the bright lights and sparkle that can be found in the city. The juxtaposition of the two sides of the beautiful California personality truly emulates the ability for her collection to connect with all kinds of fashion lovers. 

Lily incorporates the use of genuine natural materials, such as wood, precious and semi-precious stones including aquamarine, diamonds, pearls, smoky topaz, pyrite, turquoise, agate and more to the designs that she creates. This combination creates a beautifully rustic product line that has been intentionally designed to be worn alone or layered together. Gold & Gray jewelry can take you from day to night with earthy, modern glamour.

This fall, don't be afraid to have a little fun when putting your look together. Remember, most fashion rules are made to be broken, so don't be afraid to make personal style your own personal mission. 

Happy Fall!
