Fall is almost here, and it's time to stock up on clothes as well as accessories that go with the season. Anyone who follows fashion trends firmly understands the need for an up-to-date jewelry collection too. It's interesting how simple pieces of jewelry can add depth to a regular outfit.
This fall, big and bold is the key. Here's a roundup of ten of the most significant jewelry trends from the runways that will punctuate the next season.
1) Chunky Chain Links
This season is all about throwing a bit of weight around your neck. The chunkier your chain, the better it is. From Ashley Roberts to Kim Kardashian, they've all been spotted flaunting the chunky chain and tinsel town seems to be in love with this accent piece. Chunky chains were everywhere on the runways at Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, and Chloe. The best way to pull off a chunky chain is by keeping the rest of your outfit relatively simple so that your accessory stands out.
Chokers will also see a major upgrade this season. Models were seen wearing chokers made of molten metals and thicker constitutions. These chokers, or torcs, are worn at the base of the neck. The sparkling versions at Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent looked high-drama, while Alexander McQueen tried to keep chokers minimalistic in its fall collection.
3) Body Jewelry
If you thought jewelry is only for the ears, neck, and fingers, you are wrong. This season will witness the return of body jewelry from the 80s. We are not talking about beach body jewelry, but baubles that you can wear over your evening dress. Gucci tried a bold experiment for fall and designed body jewelry with rows of rhinestones. You can also keep it minimalistic like Jacquemus models by wearing a delicate body chain with a tiny blue orbiting stone in it.
4) Hoop Earrings
Another trend from the 80s that will re-emerge this fall is hoop earrings, but with subtle tweaks. A Gucci model walked the runway wearing three oversized hoop earrings in one ear, while a Jacquemus model wore what can be called the largest hoop earrings ever. The ramps also witnessed an unusual design from Tom Ford - large hoops embedded with small precious stones.
5) Mismatched Earrings
One of the most fashionable trends of fall 2108-2019 is mismatched earrings. This fashion-forward trend is energetic in its approach and gives the wearer a sense of confidence. Models walking the ramp for brands like Chanel, Prabal Gurung, and Jacquemus were seen wearing this unusually elegant look.
6) Single Earring
This earring is long and dangling, asymmetrical in structure and sweeps past the collarbone. The trend was visible on the runway at 3.1 Phillip Lim where models were seen wearing single chandelier earrings with confidence. Dries Van Notten's teardrop singular earring was also a showstopper.
7) Charm Necklaces
Chunky charm styled necklaces will be another favorite trend this fall. These necklaces add a modern twist to traditional charm bracelets. This season we will see everything from stars to chunky stones used as charms on classic gold necklaces. Versace's coin charms are whimsical, and we love the old-school vibes they give out.

8) Cuff Bracelets
Like chunky chains, ornate and chunky cuff bracelets will replace delicate bracelets this season. Dolce and Gabbana models walked the ramp wearing golden bangle cuffs studded with costume jewels. Alexander McQueen's forest green cuffs also garnered a lot of attention. We loved Altuzarra's silver unicorn cuff bracelet that looked uber-chic and sexy.
9) Autumn Leaves
When we think of fall, we think of leaves. Maybe this is why the ethereal autumn leaves made their way into the fall 2018-2019 jewelry trends and appeared heavily in fashion shows. From Valentino's leaf earrings and Jacquemus's singular earring to Chloe's chunky necklace with leaves links, autumn leaves delivered a soothing bohemian and gypsy-approved look.
10) Skinny Chains
Contradicting the chunky and bold themes of fall 2018-2019, the simple and elegant necklace ruled the catwalks. Dainty and feminine, the gold chain is perfect for layering with winter scarves and sweaters. Dior, Louis Vuitton as well as Missoni played perfectly well with skinny necklaces in their fall 2018-2019 collection.
To look fashionably up-to-date, don't hold back on the accessory front this season. Jewelry fashion this fall is going to be eclectic, elegant, bold, and most importantly, a reflection of the 80s. Accessorize with the season's latest statement pieces mentioned above and stay ahead in the fashion game.
