A Look at Autumn Fashion Trends

Written By Laura Stamper
Autumn in Australia - Photography by Mandy Harvey

Fall is upon us.  This means warm days and crisp nights.
The trees put on their finest colors as if preparing for a ball. 
The air is fresh, the kids are in school and it's time to cuddle up
in your favorite sweater with a good cup of coffee.

It's also time to update your fall wardrobe.
Whether your style is casual,classic, chic or trendy,
the right accessories are must haves to complete your look.

 Warm russets, chocolate browns and storm cloud grays are some
of the colors that come to mind when dressing for autumn.

Contrast in color and texture is one way to
consider your choices in accessorizing your look.

 This matte gray jacket can convey a variety of looks.

The vintage art deco brooch below is classic and understated:

Or add a tough of boho with these daring brass earrings:

The most prevalent trend this fall seems to be color, color and more color.

Fashion "dont's" of yesteryear are today's most exciting must haves.
Color and contrast are hot this season.  This great outfit
has endless possibilities when it comes to jewelry choices.
The key here is one statement piece that makes the outfit pop!

Another popular trend showing up this fall is the detailed dress.

The best finishing touch for dramatic or bright ensembles should not
detract from the cut of color. Bracelets and earrings that compliment
the complexion of the dress will make you unforgetable.

Classic and Timeless: Pearls

By Debbie from DG Jewelry Designs

Almost any shelled mollusk can, by natural processes, produce some kind of "pearl" when an irritating microscopic object becomes trapped within the mollusk's mantle folds, but the great majority of these "pearls" are not valued as gemstones.

Nacreous pearls, the best-known and most commercially-significant pearls, are primarily produced by two groups of molluscan bivalves or clams. A nacreous pearl is made from layers of nacre, by the same living process as is used in the secretion of the mother of pearl which lines the shell.

A "natural pearl" or "wild pearl" is one that forms without any human intervention at all, in the wild, and is very rare. A cultured pearl is formed in a pearl farm, using human intervention as well as natural processes.

Classic and timeless, pearls are the birthstone for the month of June. Here are some gorgeous pearl jewelry designs by members of the Jewelry on Etsy Team (JET):

There is also a very rare type of pearls called “drusy” pearls. Only less than 1% of the natural pearls can form this fascinating drusy type. They are called “drusy” pearls due to the glowing lustrous “drusy” textured skin. Each pearl has lots of little drusy bumps. The more bumps the pearls have, the more valuable they are.
