Finally fall is here, even though it doesn’t feel like it outside. It’s hard to break out the boots and sweaters when it is still 85 degrees, but it doesn’t stop me from doing it anyway. After all, I work in an air-conditioned building and I’m not about to miss out on the short window of opportunity I have before it’s winter and everything I wear will be covered in big wooly jackets.
Since fall is my favorite time for dressing, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to share some of my favorite fall trends while also showing you some of my must-have jewelry picks for the new season. We keep getting questions about how to style the jewelry and what pieces go with what. Well, I’m here to give you some ideas. Over the next few weeks on Plate and Pattern, I’ll be taking some of the new fall trends, creating outfits and paring them with our beautiful Willow House jewelry.
This particular outfit combines several of the trends — chunky knits, feminine tops and camel-colored hues. It’s a classic look, so I paired it with some of our timeless pieces. If you don’t buy anything else this season, you must buy the Ionia bangles in gold, silver or better yet — both! I am in love with them. Just like your favorite pair of black pants, they go with everything, can be worn time and time and again and work for all seasons.
The Monaco onyx ring is another favorite of mine. It makes a statement on your hand but can still be casually worn all day. Everyone who knows me knows I love to pile on the bracelets, so I added the Captiva Night Black Bead Bangle and the Ionia Riveted Cuff . When it comes to bracelets, the more the merrier, right? And last but certainly not least, I added the Captiva Night Beaded Earrings to complete the look. I thought all of the natural elements in the earrings went so well with the neutral color palette of the outfit.
Remember, my style may be different than your style, but fabulous jewelry works with ANY style!
