Elevate Your Autumn Wardrobe: The Art of Layering your C&B

As the leaves turn from lush greens to rich amber hues and the air gains a slight chill, it’s time to update your wardrobe for the enchanting season of autumn. While fall fashion often leans toward earthy tones and cozy layers, one timeless trend that can effortlessly elevate your look is the art of layering sterling silver necklaces. In this guide, we will delve into the world of women’s neutral dressing for autumn, with a particular focus on how layering necklaces with different chain lengths, charms, and metal finishes can transform your outfits into super stylish ensembles!


The Power of Neutrals in Autumn
Autumn fashion is synonymous with warm and muted colours like deep browns, forest greens, and rustic oranges. Incorporating neutrals into your wardrobe during this season not only celebrates nature’s palette but also provides a versatile base for your daily attire. Think of neutral tones like beige, cream, taupe, and soft grey as your canvas—a canvas upon which your layered sterling silver necklaces like the Fierce and Fabulous set will shine.


Sterling Silver: The Perfect Complement
Sterling silver is an ideal choice for autumn accessorising. Its cool, silvery sheen complements the warm, earthy tones of fall, creating a harmonious balance. Furthermore, the versatility of sterling silver allows it to effortlessly adapt to both casual and formal outfits, making it a must-have for any autumn wardrobe.

Layering: A Stylish Statement
Layering necklaces is a trend that has taken the fashion world by storm, and for good reason. It allows you to showcase your individuality and creativity, transforming a basic outfit into a captivating ensemble. When it comes to layering sterling silver necklaces for autumn, there are three key elements to consider: chain lengths, charms, and metal finishes.


Chain Lengths: Creating Depth and Dimension
Varying the lengths of your sterling silver necklaces is the cornerstone of successful layering. Start with a short necklace that sits close to your neck, such as a choker or a 16-inch chain. This provides a strong foundation for your layered look. Then, add one or two longer necklaces, opting for lengths between 18 to 21 inches.  We advise a 2″ difference in chain length as a general rule.  The differing chain lengths create depth and dimension, drawing attention to your neckline and adding visual interest to your outfit.  Check out our Shop the Look page for some layering inspiration.


Charms: Personalising Your Style
Charms are a delightful way to infuse your personality into your jewellery. Whether it’s a delicate heart, a meaningful initial, or a nature-inspired design, incorporating charms into your layered necklaces adds a personal touch to your ensemble. Choose charms that resonate with you or convey a sentiment that’s close to your heart. Mixing and matching different charms on your necklaces allows you to tell your story and make a unique fashion statement.


Metal Finishes: Mixing and Matching
Don’t be afraid to mix different metal finishes within your sterling silver necklaces.  We love mixed metals!  Combining silver with rose gold or yellow gold creates an eclectic yet harmonious look. This mixed-metal approach not only adds visual intrigue but also allows you to wear your favourite jewellery pieces, regardless of their metal colour, with confidence. It’s a trend that defies convention, making it a perfect fit for the modern woman’s wardrobe.


Autumn Outfit Inspiration
Let’s put theory into practice with some autumn outfit inspiration:

Cozy Sweater and Jeans: Pair a cream-coloured chunky knit sweater with high-waisted jeans. Add depth to your neckline with a short sterling silver Star choker. Layer it with a longer necklace like the Blooming lovely and you’re ready for a crisp autumn day.

Bohemian Maxi Dress: Embrace your inner bohemian with a flowing maxi dress in earthy tones. Layer a combination of sterling silver necklaces with varying chain lengths and charms, such as feathers, wings, or flowers. The eclectic mix will complement your boho-chic look effortlessly.

Tailored Blazer and Turtleneck: For a more sophisticated ensemble, pair a tailored blazer with a turtleneck sweater in a classic neutral shade like charcoal grey. Elevate your neckline with a layered sterling silver necklace set featuring minimalist pendants and varying metal finishes. This adds a touch of elegance to your office attire or evening rendezvous.


In the enchanting season of autumn, your wardrobe becomes a canvas upon which you can express your style and individuality. By mastering the art of layering sterling silver necklaces with different chain lengths, charms, and metal finishes, you can effortlessly elevate your neutral autumn outfits into captivating ensembles. Remember, fashion is a form of self-expression, and your jewellery choices are a reflection of your unique personality. So, layer with intention, mix with confidence, and let your jewellery tell your story as the leaves fall and the autumn breeze embraces your impeccable style.
