Solid Metal Jewelry Trend for Fall/Winter 2011/2012

Most of the latest fashion trends are influenced from a particular era, movement or style. Thus drawing inspiration from the Ancients, cold and hard, solid metal jewelry shaped into the forms of cuffs and collars makes a great trend for fall/winter 2011/2012, coming to crown your looks with something refined, something strong and spectacular. Whether it’s gold, silver, copper or bronze, this type of jewelry is extremely clean and pure, simple and minimalistic, containing a high dose of modern touch and elegance.

Since the new fashion year is highly characterized by minimalism through simple designs and clean cuts, minimalist accessorieshave also become inevitable. To that end this refined trend isn’t about embellishments, filigrees or engravings, but just a bar of smooth and solid metal, which can instantly spice up your look. So simple, yet so chic and effective!

However, minimalism isn’t the only influence over the solid metal jewelry trend. With the year of 2010 full of fierce ancient warrior influences, 2011 takes a more glamorous turn bringing back those amazing armlets and torques, popular from the Bronze Age through to the Iron Age.

Solid metal accessories perfectly go with ‘70s-inspired clothing pieces. Opt for a flowing frock or a sharp tailored suit, and accessorize your outfits with a chic sleek gold choker or a heavy gold cuff bracelet. You can also wear your solid metal jewelry with your swimwear, which will inject a goddess-like flair to your appearance. For winter, a smart solution will be contrasting those cold metal pieces with soft knits and luxurious furs. Another great option can be a minimalist jacket or a coat, crowned with a strong metal chocker for some icy sophistication and elegance.
Embrace this chic trend and get ready to step into the 2012 fashion world in a luxurious, outstanding style!
