The Jewelry Trends for Fall 2021 to Invest In Now

The mood-booster you need.

When Tom Ford got to work on his new Fall collection, he had a few characteristics in mind. “Fierce, powerful, and badass are words that resonated me this season,” he told Daily Front Row. “I mean, who doesn’t want to be a badass? Especially after being trapped at home for a year.” And being trapped at home is, indeed, all that's been on anyone’s mind. As we swapped our fabulous dresses and trousers for sweats and thick socks, our jewelry stayed locked away. This was reflected in the Fall collections, where jewelry wasn’t flaunted ostentatiously as it has been in seasons past.

While the pandemic will undoubtedly have a lasting effect on the fashion industry for the next few seasons (you can retire your stilettos until 2022), designers brought life back into the few jewelry bits that were shown in the collections. Earrings that you can party the night away in and small eclectic charms were some of the styles that graced the runway. All came with an implicit PSA: Don’t underestimate the power of a good jewel. Whether small and minimal, or XL and art deco, a bit of glamour will ward off lackluster energy. A show-stopping jewel can be your best friend in combating these days of monotony.
