guestGuest Column: Turning a New Leaf by Janet Ward

With the days already getting shorter, it's time to draw one season to a close and look forward to the warming trends of fall jewelry. As the leaves turn to vibrant shades of red, copper and gold, these colors are also appearing in our bangles and gems. 

Gold is back for fall 2013 in all its sultry glory. As far back as ancient Egypt, gold has always been a highly sought-after item. Gold can infuse both comfort and richness to your style and the fall season is the perfect time to add these qualities to your wardrobe. 

But just because gold is popular again doesn't mean you should throw out your silver! In fact, many jewelry experts advise you to wear the "rival" metals together, warm with cool. For example, stack your bracelets, wear earrings that combine the two metals, or combine silver and gold neck chains. 

As the air turns cooler, turn to your accessories to warm up your look. Gem stones in beautiful rich emeralds, vibrant reds and shades of bronze and copper add instant glamour to any outfit. Pair a necklace in one of these luminous colours with a black sweater and jeans for a great switch from Saturday shopping to dinner with friends. 

Also, don't just think of metals and baubles as your only go-to accessories. Grab a scarf to pump up the look of a simple outfit. Not only does a scarf look fabulous wrapped and tied in a beautiful knot, it can easily add a hint of color to any staple item in your closet. A scarf is also the perfect weight for those cool autumn mornings, rather than a heavier jacket, and definitely comes in handy in an air-conditioned office or for those after-work errands. Stash one in your glove box or desk drawer to chase away the chills of the autumn days ahead.

tipsStyle Tips: Choosing the Right Colours and Prints

Adding colour to our outfits as we get older is a great way to look young and stylish, and it's an ideal way of looking on-trend, while still keeping an outfit less fussy. Jewel colours such as crimson red, emerald green, or amethyst look particularly good against older skin, plus women over 50 have the experience and maturity to pull them off. However, bright primary colors can look draining against the face. That good old wardrobe staple black, can also make some older skins look washed out, in which case, add a hint of metallic in an accessory, or wear a brighter colour near the face in the guise of a necklace or scarf. Colours such as plum, deep red and chocolate brown look sophisticated on women over 50, and wearing black with beige or navy looks both expensive and elegant. 

There are certain universal prints that will flatter any age such as stripes, leopard print and polka dots. However, some floral prints can be incredibly ageing, such as dark wallpaper florals. It's also time to avoid those silly prints that look better on 20- and 30-somethings, in favour of a medium-sized print, or one with a solid background of single color. Choose a print that relates to your body frame - i.e. if you are petite them look for a smaller print (such as on-trend polka dot or swallow prints) or you will look lost in an oversized one. The opposite is also true; a tiny print on a large frame will make you look bigger than you are.


We want to remind everyone that we are open Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm. Unlike the mall, you can drive right up to our door and enjoy our personalized service every time you shop!
