Choker – 9.99 H&M
As always, updating a classic is a big theme for this autumn. With people still looking back to the nineties for inspiration, the choker is back once again. However, the plain black ones just aren’t enough this season and the choker has been reinvented with a modern take. This one from H&M features pearl-like beads, sparkly gems, and light metal accents arranged in a floral type design.
Bobble Septum Ring by Orelia at Topshop – £8 Topshop
Autumn sees the return of the faux piercing. A continuation of summer’s popular festival-inspired trend, the faux piercing allows you to experiment without the commitment or pain of a real piercing. This gold coloured septum ring by Orelia at Topshop features a simple tear drop design and can also be worn as an ear cuff.
3D Flower Necklace- £14.99 New Look
Take your look to another dimension with 3D jewellery. This season it’s all about the big details. This statement necklace from New Look ticks all the trend boxes for this season. Contrasting chunky gold, white, and pearl coloured flower detailing featured on a plain black ribbon, this necklace is perfect to add some edge to a LBD or plain jumpsuit. Style Tip: Keep this in your handbag to take a plain outfit from day to night.
Crystal Ear Cuff- £8.99 Dorothy Perkins
Just like faux piercings, ear cuffs are back! Another trend inspired by the festival season, ear cuffs are a great way to add some bling to your look and are a fun alternative to regular earrings. This gold ear cuff features a mixture of leaf and crystal detailing which curves in line with the shape of the ear.
Set of 5 Gemstone Necklaces- £17.99 Zara
This season layering is no longer just for clothes as autumn sees multiple necklaces and stacks of statement rings on the high-street. Hit two trends in one with this set of five gemstone necklaces from Zara. Featuring neutral gemstone pendants on various chain lengths, the combinations are endless! These are the perfect accessory to go with the roll necks and long sleeves that are everywhere right now.
Gold Flecked Gem Cocktail Ring – £8 River Island
As mentioned above, statement rings are a big hit this season. Inline with the trend of gem stones, the theme seems to be the bigger the better. This ring from River Island features a light green stone with gold accents in an intricate ornate setting. Tip: make those gemstones sparkle by complimenting the colour of your ring with a manicure to match!
Tassel Drop Earrings – £14 Urban Outfitters
With the seventies still being a source of influence this autumn, it seems that tassels are here to stay! If you’re not a fan of fringed jackets or handbags, these tassel earrings are enough to keep on trend without going overboard. The gold detailing at the top gives them a little bit of glamour, while the black colour of the tassels allow these to go with outfits of any colour.
