Art Deco

Add interest to your outfit with a pair of funky art deco earrings. If you are unsure what that means, take a look at this House of Harlow Art Deco Ring. The bold geometric shapes and sharp color definitions make this an easy style to incorporate into your current wardrobe. Pair with monotone outfits for a burst of interest, or combine with equally sharp color-blocked ensembles.

Leaves

Nature-inspired jewelry is another easy-to-wear trend that is making fashion waves this fall. Leaves, branches, even insects are making their mark in jewelry. These fancy earrings of gold leaves from the Tori Spelling collection are completely appropriate to wear with your favorite slouchy fisherman sweater and oxblood jeans.
