It always feels good to refresh your wardrobe for fall, (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab)). This may mean snagging a great new pair of boots (opens in new tab) and a fab sweater (opens in new tab) to wear with short skirts now and trousers later. We suggest you give the same treatment to your jewelry wardrobe. (opens in new tab) 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.
We Dream in Colour - Gold Comet Studs
These earrings will look as amazing with a sweater dress as they will with a slim black suit for evening.
Gas Bijoux - Trapani Earrings
These button earrings definitely have a retro vibe about them but will look just as good with a white tee and jeans or a mini slip dress for date night.
Lelia + Mae - Tati Silver Hoops
Turn heads in these thick silver earrings by women-run company Lelia + Mae.
Alessandra Rich - Oversized Gold-Plated Crystal Clip Earrings
For some Dynasty-inspired (Google it) glamour, try these clip earrings to make even sweats feel special.
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.
Soko - Sayo Collar Necklace
This choker with a knot detail looks as chic on its own as it will with a few layered chains.
Jennifer Fisher - Warped Tube Choker
This choker serves a heavy metal vibe but is actually insanely lightweight.
Alexander McQueen - Tubular Crystal-Embellished Choker
A little subtle sparkle takes this bold choker style straight into evening.
Kenneth Jay Lane - Golden Collar Necklace
The costume jeweler of all costume jewelers, Kenneth Jay Lane, nailed the gold collar trend with this bold style.
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.
Mahnal - Janan Collar
This necklace would be fab with a black turtleneck to really show off the sculptural squiggles of the pendant.
Tohum - Dunya Calusa Necklace in Gold
Even the clasp on this necklace is stunning, making this a "hair up" kind of piece in order to show it off from the back.
Azizah HandCrafted - Fatin Cyrstal Choker
Nothing short of special, this piece is begging to be worn with a caftan gown (opens in new tab) for evening.
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.
Ettika - Shell Charm Bracelet
Who says shells are just for summer? Natural elements are always in style, so take these charms right into fall.
Chan Luu - White Pearl Mix Necklace
Pearls, glass, shells and a touch of gold make for an irresistible mix.
Urban Outfitters - Maisie Mini Charm Hoop Earring Set
Mix, match and layer on a slew of charms with this super affordable set.
Givenchy - Charming Earrings
A fun play on a logo, these textured charms carry each letter of the word G-I-V-E-N-C-H-Y. Bonus points if you can pronounce it correctly.
It's like a necklace...for your waist! Take a cue from the runways of Celine (left) and Ferragamo (right) and try a chain belt on with just about anything, from jeans to an LBD to a breezy summer maxi. It will look like you made a big effort, for very little effort.
Epifene - Garbo Chain Belt
The circle links on this chain belt give it a '70s feel that will look amazing cinching the waist of a printed maxi.
Cult Gaia - Jasmin Chain Belt
Lucite and gold is the combo you didn't know you needed in a belt.
B Low The Belt - Miri Belt
The mix of gold and pearls on this belt will dress up any pair of jeans with ease.
8 Other Reasons - Nelly Chain Belt
This layered chain belt adds some extra "oomph" and will look fab on a sweater dress for day or night.
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.
Paco Rabanne - Silver-Tone Crystal Necklace
Throw your keys and maybe one credit card (max) into this little necklace pouch as an even teenier evening bag.
Gucci - Lighter Necklace Pouch Bag
Technically meant to hold a lighter, but perhaps a travel-sized hand sanitizer is more 2020 apropos?
Fendi - Pico Baguette Charm
Honey, Fendi shrunk the Baguette!
Infinite Love Designs - Crystal Protection Pouch
This teeny pouch doubles as a necklace but also provides crystal protection to keep good vibes headed your way.
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.
Ganni - Animal Print Beaded Headband
The subtle sparkle on this headband makes this look a bit dressier for evening.
Rosantica - Gold-Tone Faux Pearl Headband
Heavy chain + pearl drops = the statement-making hair accessory you need now.
Lelet NY - Dot Dot Crown
This crown rises above the head a bit to command attention and add a regal vibe to any look.
Lele Sadoughi - Pearly Bead Headband
Plaid + pearls = fall accessory perfection.
Pearls have made a major comeback and don't seem to be heading anywhere anytime soon. For fall, try layering them in various lengths like at Chanel (left) or pairing different pearl shapes together as seen at March Jacobs (right). It's all about pulling a double-duty look when it comes to pearls.
White Space Jewelry - Pearl Empress Earrings
The duality of baroque and pink freshwater pearls is double the beauty, double the fun.
Éliou - Porto Gold-Plated Pearl Necklace
This mixed-shape pearl necklace would also look amazing layered with a shorter, traditional strand of pearls.
Fenty - Pearl Drop Hoops
Looking for a hoop and a drop strand earring? Find you a pearl who can do both!
Jennifer Behr - Dramman Anklet
Double up on pearls with a pearl strand anklet that has pearl drops as well. Looks really cute layered over a white sock in fall.
While we love pavé for all-around sparkle, this season it's about a big ol' statement gem as seen at Saint Laurent (left) and Miu Miu (right). And just so we're clear: the bigger the stone, the more fun you're going to have! It's science, trust us.
Kenneth Jay Lane - Polished Gold and Peridot Square Center Stone Ring
A cocktail ring never goes out of style, especially in this super delicious green.
Area - Costume Gemstone Earrings
A fashion favorite of the downtown NYC set, Area loves a hit of sparkle. These earrings will be an evening-go-to for years to come.
Roxanne Assoulin - Ice Ice Baby Necklace
This classic necklace looks just as good with a cocktail dress as it does with a t-shirt. Talk about bang for your buck!
Brinker & Eliza - Glass Crystal Courtney Earrings by Brinker & Eliza
We literally have heart-eye emoji for these heart shaped earrings.
