Dress This Look: Jewelry to Pair With Mid-Century Clothes

One of the trends for fall fashion is the ladylike silhouette inspired by mid-century modern styling. That means belted waists, skirt suits, and hourglass silhouettes with a “cinematic, film-noirish vibe,” according to Style.com.

To help shoppers accessorize right, keep these styles top of mind.

A choker necklace. It’ll cinch the neck like a belt on the waist and makes the perfect statement—reserved yet memorable.

A statement earring. A pair of earrings will help balance a look, goes great with a non-patterned ensemble, and draws attention upward. (Need inspiration? See Christian Dior’s vision.)

A pendant necklace. There are myriad open necklines in fall’s wardrobe, making the pendant necklace a go-to piece. Motifs of choice will vary, of course, based on wearers’ tastes, but expect to see ample inventory in styles designed to adorn the neckline (see examples here and here). Also of note: Lanvin’s lighthearted number, which adds interest and irony to a buttoned-up classic.
