Fall Trends for 2017: Go Bold or Go Home

Fall Trends for 2017: Go Bold or Go Home

Is there anything more beautiful than a forest or a park full of trees that are in the process of changing color from green to vibrant yellow, brown, orange, and red? With the new season’s chill in the air, now is the time to unpack your fall clothes – or even to get a new outfit or two!

Inspired by the lovely designs that we’ve seen on the runway, we bring you our take on our favorite fall trends for 2017 – paired with our exquisite pearl jewelry, of course.


Fall Trend #1: Fun Florals

Don’t be afraid to break away from the traditional fall color palette. Designers like Mary Katrantzou, Oscar de la Renta, Balenciaga, and Erdem agree. Stand out with vibrant yellows and greens, and complete your look with gold jewelry to add a splash of elegance, like our Golden Crown Pearl Earrings.


Fall Trend #2: Couch Florals

Vintage flowers and mixed patterns made a surprise appearance on the runway this year.  Designers like Vivienne Westwood, Balenciaga, Mulberry, and Ralph Lauren led the way. Choose a bold print in a vintage fit, and don’t be afraid to add more flowers and colors to your outfit through your accessories, like one of our Cornflower Pearl Brooches.


Fall Trend #3: Lady in Red

Red is back! (Was it ever gone?) The runway saw a lot of bold red designs this year, such as designs by Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce and Gabbana, and Armani. Try an unusual combination of a print tee paired with a bright red satin skirt and top it off with our red Peony Flower Pearl Brooch.


Fall Trend #4: Unapologetically Red

Red is so prominent this year, thus earning a second entry in this blog. If you don’t want to go all red, adding just a splash still gets you the stamp of approval. Red pairs exceptionally well with denim. Complete your outfit with our exquisite Corsage Orchid Pearl Brooch.


Fall Trend #5: All-American Retro

Despite our differences, deep down we’re all proud to be American. And designers like Ashley Williams and Versace agree. Think 50s when choosing your pieces and pair your cute retro outfit with our American Rose Pearl Brooch. The American dream is back in style!


Fall Trend #6: The Wild West

If you want to go back even further into American history, why not embrace the wild west? Crochet, fringed leather, and patchwork dresses were all the rage on the runway, and designers like Erdem and Public School showed us the way. Pair your outfit with our Superstar Earrings for a feminine touch.


Fall Trend #7: Glittering Silver

If bold colors aren’t your thing, opt for sleek silver and metallic sparkles – mimicking a disco ball will earn you extra points. Designers like Saint Laurent, Michael Kors, Christopher Kane, and Alexander McQueen embraced glitter-and-glow this year. Pair your dazzling outfit with our Waterfall Drop Pearl Earrings for added pizazz.


Fall Trend #8: Black Leather

From loose-fitting leather pants to models looking like they’ve just stepped off the set of The Matrix, black leather ruled. Designers like Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, Fendi, and Calvin Klein brought this trend to life this year. Add a touch of color to your outfits with accessories, like our Jade and Pearls Bracelet.


Fall Trend #9: Bedtime Stories

Comfort was clearly high on the agenda: from loose-fitting, flannel-PJ-like designs, to silky slip dresses and lacy – almost lingerie-like – dresses. If you can kick off your shoes and get right into bed, you’re on the right track. Designers like Louis Vuitton, House of Holland, Francesca Liberatore, and Mulberry embraced the comfy look. Dress your PJs up with sexy leather boots and show-stopping jewelry, like our Pink Lady Pearl Earrings.


Fall Trend #10: Victorian Collars and Gold

Both Victorian collars and gold are huge trends. Designers like Jason Wu, Milly, and Tome showed us how to wear texture-heavy, rich-gold evening gowns, while Victorian-inspired collars made a comeback with designers Valentino, John Galliano, Lemaire, and Beaufille. We love the two trends combined. Complete your look with our Golden Fairy Edison Pearl Earrings.


Fall Trend #11: Abundantly Denim

If all the denim outfits that featured in the collections highlighted above did not give it away yet, denim is a huge favorite this year. Pair your best-loved denims with your favorite top and accessories. We like this fall-leaves-colored top and chunky shoes paired with our Maple Leaf Pearl Brooch as a nod to our neighbors to the north. Designers who went head-to-toe in denim included Dior, Marc Jacobs, and Sacai, while Versace embraced embroidered denim.
