Southwest jewelry is hot again this season, thanks in part to its ability to coordinate well with the rich earth tones and flowing fabrics gracing runways.
The look for 2012 is all about comfort and warmth: hemlines are longer and evening wear leaves more to the imagination. SilverTribe.com, the leading online retailer of turquoise jewelry styles, has expanded its offerings in response to these new styles.
According to top retail buyers, skinny jeans are still the rule of thumb for casual daywear. In department stores, shoppers will also find a broad range of jeggings (denim leggings) and colored cotton tights. Glamour Magazine’s New York and Paris runway picks emphasize skinny dress pants that compliment fall’s longer suit jackets and gauzy blouses.
Native American jewelry found at SilverTribe.com compliment these smart styles, highlighting the clean lines of the couture. “Our online store boasts a range of inlaid and solid stone cuff bracelets that contrast beautifully with the season’s winter white pantsuit,” says SilverTribe spokesperson Chris Anderson.
Evening wear collections on display at New York’s 2012 Fall/Winter Fashion Week shifted away from strapless designs. High necks and cowls ruled the runways, from Carolina Herrera’s black-and-blue evening dress to the beige silk shifts offered by various designers. While appropriate for cooler weather, these styles can be difficult to accessorize.
Anderson suggests forgoing neckwear with fall’s collared dresses and jackets. “A simple pair of turquoise teardrop earrings set in sterling silver is the perfect compliment to clothing with a higher neckline,” he stated. “They frame the face with a burst of color.”
Marie Claire’s predictions for the season’s hottest trends include leather skirts, military-inspired ensembles, and patterns ranging from animal print to latticework. Accessories in solid colors help to ground outfits with complex patterns.
The key is to mix hues and textures so that one element stands out: a printed scarf, for example, or a piece of Southwest jewelry. “Silvertribe.com has a variety of inlaid pieces in spectacular color combinations. They are truly unique,” said Anderson. “One bold piece can make or break an entire outfit.”
