Over the past decade, clothing silhouettes have become sleeker and sleeker. Tights, skinny jeans and well-fitted skirts have replaced flared trousers and denims especially for fall dressing. The trend is expected to continue for a few good more fashion seasons though accessories trend for Fall 2012 are going to take a giant leap from the demure and delicate look from last fall being replaced by the preference for a more chunky look. Yes, ladies you read that right. No need to pack up the chunkier accessories that you paired with your maxi skirts, jumpsuits and flowy dresses over the summer. Instead, you can pick out a few favorite pieces and use them to highlight the more conservative outfits you will be donning over the fall.
Packing a distinct punch, chunky jewelry will make any outfit look chic. More often than not, these pieces are flea market finds or souvenirs purchased on exotic vacations and that is exactly what adds to the appeal of chunky accessories. What also makes chunky jewelry such a great pairing for the subtler colors of the fall is the fact that the striking and vibrant hues of these pieces helps you go from drab to fab with a single accessory.
The trick with wearing chunky jewelry this fall, as usual, is going to be all about choosing the right pieces and combine them well with the outfit that you are wearing. If you are wearing a monochromatic outfit or an ensemble in complementing shades, a multi-colored piece of necklace or bracelet would look totally stylish. For outfits that have more colors in them, a piece of chunky jewelry in a single color would be more appropriate. Also, try not to wear more than one chunky item at a time. If you’re wearing a bold necklace, wear smaller earrings and sleeker bracelets. You can also try to combine chunky bangles with thinner ones to create a dramatic effect.
