The Jewelry Trends to Invest In for Fall 2020

You're going to want to wear these in sweater weather.

jewelry trends

It always feels good to refresh your wardrobe for fall, especially after months of wearing practically nothing in the summer heat. The temperature starts to drop and then it's time for real clothes (see ya next year, denim cut-offs). This may mean snagging a great new pair of boots and a fab sweater to wear with short skirts now and trousers later. We suggest you give the same treatment to your jewelry wardrobe. It's time to leave behind summer baubles like wooden bangles and friendship bracelets and deck yourself out with bolder pieces that feel less like a vacation souvenir. We're talkin' big sparkling crystals, statement art pieces around the neck, and jewelry for your jeans. Intrigued? Click through for a solid roundup of the top fall jewelry trends seen on the runways this February and March and where to buy these right now. And don't panic: Runway trends can seem a little intimidating, but these are simple enough to master on the daily and evergreen enough to justify a little splurge here and there.

'80s Statement Earrings

Go big or don't bother. Big statement earrings were shown as big sphere buttons (like at Dries Van Noten, left) or sculptural shapes (at Y Project, right). Either way, swap your layered dainty earrings and give them something to talk about.

Heavy Gold Chokers

The choker trend looks a little different this time around. Instead of ribbons or tight beaded strands, opt for a heavy metal version that sits right at the collarbone like these from Proenza Schouler (left) and Chloe (right). It looks chic with basically everything and can be the one piece of jewelry you need to finish the look.

Sculptural Pendants

There's something so timeless about a Calder-esque sculptural necklace that fashion houses like Givenchy (left) and Valentino (right) have made part of the brand DNA. It looks great with turtlenecks shown here, but can really pull together a jeans/tee/blazer combo too.

Chains with Charms

No other piece of jewelry feels as sweet and nostalgic as a classic charm bracelet. On the runway they were shown on bracelets, necklaces (like Alexander McQueen, left, and Dior, right) and earrings. While accumulating charms for birthdays and milestones has great sentimental value, jewelry designers have made some stylish shortcuts.

Necklace Bags

Basically, these are kind of like wearing a big pendant necklace, only it can hold things? And by things we mean a lip balm, but who's counting? It's a bit of a wildcard item, but from Alexander McQueen (left) to Prada (right), these were definitely a "thing" this season.

Fancy Headbands

Making a hair statement was definitely a priority on the runways this season. From futuristic crowns at Prada (left) and upside-down styling at Fendi (right), this takes the headband to new heights, literally. While a Blair Waldorf-inspired headband is always great, opt for something more dramatic this fall.
