The Trend: Gem-Embellished Tops
Browsing the shop offerings for fall in the last couple weeks, I’ve noticed a ton of shirts, blouses, and sweaters with jewel embellishment. Sometimes the gems are scattered across the whole garment, sometimes they create a necklace shape at the neckline. This is a really pretty, feminine trend for fall that we’re digging, so here are some picks if you, too, like this look.
J.Crew Collection Jeweled Cable Shell – $126 w/code SHOPFALL ($168)
This ivory sweater shell is a merino/nylon/cashmere blend, which means it’s really soft and warm. It would be great worn under a blazer, or even alone during these early fall months.
A new spin on the striped rugby tee, updated with a single row of square gems. Casual and fun.
If you’re not familiar with Dorothy Perkins, it’s a UK brand that’s getting more love here in the States. Love this super soft, fuzzy dove-grey sweater with two rows of differently-shaped gems. FYI, because there isn’t a Dorothy Perkins base here in the States, if you want to return items, you have to pay to ship them back to the UK, which is both pricey, and dicey. Be sure of size/style before you order.
LOFT Tie Back Necklace Sweater – $59.50
This simple black sweater does an understated version of the jewel embellishment. You can wear this sweater with creased slacks and sassy heels to go formal, or pair with jeans and flats for super casual.
This tank would work great as a shell under a blazer. Sheer and floaty, with a scoop neck and big gems, it’s definitely a fun, loud statement piece.
Be sure to check return/shipping policies before committing to buy. Happy shopping!
