While you’re hanging with the kiddos and soaking in the final rays of summer, admit that a tiny part of you has been flipping through the fall fashion mags and dreaming of outfits for the months ahead. This season is all about shape and texture, and the perfect way to make every outfit pop is with a scene-stealing accessory. Jewelry is the easiest way to up the ante on any outfit, and the days of saving your “good” stuff for nightfall are over — diamonds, pearls, and other precious things make a perfect counterpart to a simple wrap dress, well-fitted jeans and a button-down, or your winning cocktail look. Here’s some inspiration from a favorite line of ours, Shane Co.:
Take names at the office and breeze through the day in style and comfort — this look is Chanel-inspired and easy to move in. With the polish of a blazer and the comfort of a cardigan, you can’t go wrong with this layering piece. Added over an all-black ensemble and paired with a glamorous double-strand of freshwater pearls, this ensemble says you’re ready to take on the world. The necklace brings an extra touch of ladylike prettiness. J. McLaughlin cardigan, $225. Shane Co. endless strand freshwater pearls (doubled here, but you can also wear it long), $135.
Meet a girlfriend for lunch and a manicure — a multi-print dress with plenty of swing is just the thing. This frock is lovely for early fall when temps still soar, but just as sweet paired with black tights and flat brown boots a few weeks later. A stunning 18K yellow gold pendant on an artful chain is bold yet classically understated. Get yours engraved for a personalized touch. Inez swing dress, $168, Anthropologie. 18K yellow gold Capri necklace, $350, Shane Co.
Pare it all the way down for weekends spent at home with the family — in a flirty yellow blouse though, you might just be tempted to take everyone out for an early fall ice cream treat. I’m loving this mustard hue, which pairs perfectly with jeans. When winter sets in, this piece will create a lovely pop of color beneath a gray v-neck sweater. A sterling silver, double-stranded bracelet is just the thing to add subtle shine to this casual ensemble. The bracelet’s secure construction and classic motif lend it a timeless air that’s sure to make it a new favorite. Ann Taylor Floral Bud utility blouse, $59.50. Shane Co. sterling silver infinity bracelet, $45.
Shine, Mama, shine! Your hubby won’t know what hit him when you meet him in the foyer for date night in this stunning frock. Kate Spade pulls out all the stops with fall’s hottest look — a jacquard fit-n-flare that moves when you do. The reasonable length offers plenty of coverage, but you can always pair it with gray or black tights later in the season. I adore the hot pink accents in her lipstick and shoes, but you can achieve a similar pop of color with a pair of bold ruby earrings. What girl doesn’t love gemstones? These easy-to-wear studs are endlessly glamorous with over a 1/2 ct. t.w. genuine rubies and 24 diamonds shimmering all around in a 14K white gold setting. Kate Spade dress, $448. Shane Co. round ruby and diamond earrings, $990.
