There is frost on the pumpkin, flakes are starting to fly and winter is clearly in the air. With the chill comes new ways to look smart and stay warm this season. It’s officially time to add another layer for a fresh look, to pull out the new boots, jacket or coat and other fabulous finds. This of course includes handcrafted jewelry with a one-of-a-kind look, to stand out at winter outings.
From weekends in the country to upcoming family gatherings, it’s time to celebrate. Here’s our take on some of the freshest styles that take the newest trends and translate them into wonderful winter accessorizing.
Dip dye and tie dye looks take basic denim blue in a savvy new direction this winter. Mix hues – navy, royal, even turquoise – for new ways to hit the refresh button for fall. Striking new baubles in turquoise by Linda Hagobian like the hoop earrings pictured below are an effortless way to interpret the trend. A charming Michou bracelet that pairs blue gemstones and sterling silver coordinated with chic navy and black jeweled ballet flats also make a blue style statement.
Fur has been recolored and interpreted for winter dressing in vests and jackets, in the season’s big color, gray. From shearling to long hair and even fur of the faux variety, stay cozy in tonal head to toe shades and accent with blue and metallic. Add a new gray handbag, shoe or boot, and accessorize with a perfect pearl and gemstone bracelet from Vaid-Roma for a classic winter look. Feeling more contemporary? Try these modern ceramic drop earrings from Joidart and you’ll be ready to shine.
Take your winter dressing to the next level in sophisticated black and white. Pairing a white toggle coat with a graphic black and white Fair Isle sweater is the perfect way to start. Over the knee suede boots will elevate the ensemble even further and then for the big finish layer on the statement jewelry. A handcrafted sterling silver bangle from Thistle & Bee combine seamlessly to add a hint of glamour while black chrome and diamond drop earrings from Sarah Graham can make the look feel more edgy.
