Gunmetal jewelry has been creeping into fashion over the past few seasons, and for fall 2014, designers and brands have put the darkened metal front and center. Gunmetal jewelry is being shown in every way imaginable from the main metal of a piece to an accent mixed with other metals and materials.
For fall 2014, gunmetal jewelry offers an understated vibe which is less flashy than silver or gold. In addition to being quiet, gunmetal jewelry for fall 2014 can make a piece significantly edgier than the same piece offered in gold, rose gold or silver. Love that!
Gunmetal jewelry can easily be mixed with white metal jewelry to create a personal take on the trend. Gunmetal jewelry is also being shown paired with jet black jewelry in order to create a dark, cool weather look which is a little bit rock n’ roll.
It was only natural that jewelry would be offered in gunmetal options for the fall 2014 season. Over the past few years, designers such as Chanel, Dior, Hermes, and more have started to offer gunmetal and black hardware on their handbags. This darkened, understated handbag hardware has inspired a trend in jewelry which is just as popular for fall 2o14 as traditional gold and white metals.
As gunmetal jewelry gains momentum on the street, designers and brands from all price points are also showing handbags with gunmetal and black hardware. This signals a big uptick in the trend which is showing no sign of slowing down as we move into the spring 2015 season and beyond.
I love pairing gunmetal jewelry with black, grey and cool tones this autumn season. I feel like it adds a fresh take on my overall look. When a jewelry piece is gunmetal, it can be large and complicated yet still maintain a less “flashy” look.
What do you think of the gunmetal trend for the fall 2014 season? Are you wearing it? Is it something you would like to try?
