New jewellery trends are fresh and exciting. Designer ideas from the catwalks have been interpreted and found their way to the fashion pages of magazines. This summer it’s all about wearing your jewellery in a slightly unexpected way. The designers want us to try looking at summer jewellery from a different angle. Wear your vintage family trinkets with modern pieces. Mix don’t match is the message!
The sautoir or long necklace has made a comeback and will make your summer wardrobe look stylishly up to date. Wear chains in any metal, the more unusual pendant the better. Some designers used up-cycled items to create their necklaces: think bicycle chains and lighters.
Wear a wisp of fabric with a small pendant or thread a single pearl on to a leather thong.
Art school earring
These earrings use materials in an innovative way. They have futuristic lines and sculptural qualities, qualities with graphic shapes.
Statement mono earring
Many celebrities have already been seen wearing these. An interesting large single earring, sometimes even skimming the shoulder. If you prefer, just wear one of an existing pair and a stud in your other ear.
Fantasy ear cuff
These are also statement pieces and blur the line between accessories and jewellery. Some are feather shaped like an angels wing or a take on crystal headphones.
Hybrid earring necklaces
If you are feeling brave, try wearing one of these to do the shopping. Some say creative madness, this is an open-ended necklace, linking up to an earring. Certainly on trend.
This summer jewellery trends include bracelets which should be worn on the upper arm to show off a tan or to complement short sleeves. Choose to wear one statement piece or layer up several bands to create a different look. Graphic shapes are on trend here too.
Raw stone and mineral slices are naturally beautiful and really fashionable now. A modern twist on eco trends: wear energizing stones and embrace crystal therapy.
Necklaces, pendants, earrings
Finally… the crucifix is back. Less the understated gold most recently in favour, but more chunky gothic-style crosses, plastered with pearls and stones. Reminiscent of Madonna in the ‘ 90s. Baroque reserved for summer evenings.
Choose the summer jewellery trend to suit your personality and style and enjoy wearing it this season.
