With fashion trends changing with every season the constant pressure to look fresh for every event and keeping up to date with the latest trends can leave you feeling exhausted. Fortunately, there is one easy way to keep your outfits looking on trend at all times, and that’s accessorising with Jewellery.
Accessorising with jewellery provides one of the simplest ways to make even the most plain outfit look trendy. What’s more, jewellery trends are often slower to change compared to clothing crazes and are sometimes more affordable to invest in allowing you to feel fresh and chic at all times without breaking the bank. Still, that is not to say that trends in the world of jewellery don’t exist. Here are 9 jewellery trends you should know about this year.
Last year saw the rise of bold and chunky bags and shoes. So, it’s no surprise that this trend is now making its mark on jewellery with bold and chunky rings, earrings and necklaces accented by pave diamonds becoming in vogue. While it might seem contradictory, chunky jewellery has a way of adding simplicity to an outfit.
Chunky jewellery goes well with minimal clothing styles, allowing you to add your own style and personality to your everyday look. For instance, a luxe pair of earrings or bold necklace can transform a look and bulk gold and silver charms have a way of making a statement, offering an appealing dose of effortlessness and attitude. So expect to see this trend across earrings, rings, and necklaces this spring.
Hoops have been around for the longest time, and in 2019, this ever-present trend is not going anywhere. But, every season, we see a few tweaks here and there that make hoop earrings even more stylish than before. This year hoops are taking on more shapes and detail, making them impossible to miss. Watch out for the hyper-hoops, which are an extreme version of hoop earrings in different styles, additions, embellishments, and sizes. Whether your style is more daring or minimal, instead of the typical round hoops, grab yourself some extreme hoops, preferably those that come in unusual shapes and colours.
Personalised jewellery provides you with a double whammy. You get a great looking piece of jewellery plus a keepsake that means something special to you. This makes personalised jewellery such a great gift to give a partner or loved one, especially if it’s handmade. This year we have seen a real increase in the number of celebrities and influencers choosing to wear personalised jewellery, either featuring their own name or a message that’s close to their heart.
The best part is, there’s a personal message that you can apply to your jewellery all-year round, from the beach to your Christmas outfits.
Mismatched earrings provide a decisive and energetic approach to style. These earrings bestow onto the wearer bold and bodacious confidence and they are an ultra modern way of accessorising any outfit. This trend also provides an opportunity for you to play with sizes and dimensions. You can deck out one ear with a simple stud and play with a sparkly and dangling statement maker on the other, creating a spirited and confident silhouette.
Chains and Links
Chains and links of all shapes and sizes seem to be popping up everywhere from fine jewellery designers to runways across the world. This trend seems to give a nod to the 80s, making a retro statement. You can see evidence of this trend in every modern-day form, from chokers to drop earrings. Wear them with elegant blouses for a chic juxtaposition or add in some coins or medallions for some extra flair. Consider getting chunky chains and links to wear over turtlenecks this spring.
Beads, Shells, and Feathers
In 2019, be ready to embrace handmade jewellery. This year, it’s all about natural looking jewellery pieces including beads, shells, and feathers to give your outfit that boho feel.
We love this trend for its carefree style and wanderlust vibe and are seeing it continue this year, especially in oversized geometric shaped necklaces and earrings which work to provide the perfect, imperfect look. Other than their look, you will also love how unique these artisan pieces of jewellery are. Coloured shells layered with bold colours and various lengths will make great accessories this summer.
If you thought jewellery was only meant for the hands, ears, and neck, think again. Body jewellery is back in full force providing one of the most opulent jewellery trends in 2019 that can take any evening look to new heights. The best thing about this trend is that you can use it to show off your summer body, or at least slightly reveal it with bare shoulders, crop tops, back tops etc.
You have the option to pick styles that go over your shoulders, round your waist or even those that look like body armour. Kamarbands, also known as waist chains, provide a great way to show off your waistline when wearing a range of outfits including that little black dress or a crop top with yoga pants.
Futuristic Statement Earrings
This trend comes with bold, geometric shapes, astronomic lengths, and eye-catching metallics. We highly recommend them for the young (and young at heart), looking to show off their urban attitude and playful nature. Futuristic statement earrings are different and distinctive and they come with a personality. They are bold and daring making them an exciting addition to your outfit.
The secret to rocking futuristic statement earrings is pairing them with items that share a common element or creating contrast with different placement, and lengths.
This trend which is inspired by the bold necklaces that were worn during the Art Deco era is making a big comeback in 2019. From hanging triangles, interlocking circles, prism pendants, hoop earrings, and sharply pointed edges, geometric jewellery has a strong look that is refined and sophisticated. This range is full of contrasts and juxtapositions with harsh lines being combined with sweeping curves.
We love these trends for their versatility which allows you to incorporate different styles depending on your taste and personality. Choose one or more of these jewellery trends and you can count on ruling the streets and turning plenty of heads in 2019.
