The Emmy Awards are a yearly source of fashion and beauty inspiration, with plenty of to-die-for looks on the red carpet. And alongside the gowns and the lipstick hues, the jewelry is always quick to kick-start new trend obsessions.

One piece that’s sure to inspire a need? Girls actress Allison Williams’ floral cuff bracelet. We tend to think of florals as being very hot for the spring and summer months, but no so much in the fall and winter months. However, Allison showed off a great way to make floral jewelry work in the cooler months, too. By going darker, keeping the size small, and rocking it with a dress in an on-trend color, she made this look work.


There’s something else we can learn from Allison: it’s okay to wear black jewelry with a bright color! It can be an intimidating mix, but the bright emerald shade of Allison’s Oscar de la Renta gown actually made her black bracelet shine. Try mixing your black jewelry with bright shades of burgundy, oxblood, emerald, or mustard for a look that’s very fun and fall 2012.

Need some jewelry to start? Try a piece like Zariin’s ‘Line of Beauty’ gold necklace, with black agates, smoky topaz, and czs; it’s got a chain-link necklace, which is also very on-trend right now. Pair it with other gold jewelry, like stud earrings or a cocktail ring, for a coordinated look. Want a bracelet so you can emulate Allison’s look? Try Zariin’s ‘Meandering’ gold cuff with black agates.
