It always feels good to refresh your wardrobe for fall, especially after months of wearing practically nothing in the summer heat. The temperature starts to drop and then it's time for real clothes (see ya next year, denim cut-offs). This may mean snagging a great new pair of boots and a fab sweater to wear with short skirts now and trousers later. We suggest you give the same treatment to your jewelry wardrobe. It's time to leave behind summer baubles like wooden bangles and friendship bracelets and deck yourself out with bolder pieces that feel less like a vacation souvenir. We're talkin' big sparkling crystals, statement art pieces around the neck, and jewelry for your jeans. Intrigued? Click through for a solid roundup of the top fall jewelry trends seen on the runways this February and March and where to buy these right now. And don't panic: Runway trends can seem a little intimidating, but these are simple enough to master on the daily and evergreen enough to justify a little splurge here and there.
