We could safely blow our budgets on shoes, bags, and clothes alone, but truthfully, we never feel quite out-the-door-ready without a little jewelry. Although this season's jewels are certainly not little — with a statement necklace fixation all around Fashion Week — we can safely say that bolder is better. We've tapped into the trend with more than a dozen chainlink necklaces, bracelets, and earrings that will up the edge on every Fall look. Some are tough while others balance hard and soft with girlie ribbon accents or a pop of colored jewels, but in any case, these baubles will be that perfect finishing touch no matter where you're headed.
