Fresh off the runways come a few statement-making trends to help you accessorize for the summer.
Jewelry has forever been a girl’s best friend – and the most transcendent accessory in history. But, as with the earth’s rotation and the infinite cranking of the fashion industry, there are ever-changing trends in jewelry. (Don’t worry, your stud earrings and diamond rings aren’t going anywhere.)
With summer restricting our wardrobe layering options, it may be time to bulk up your accessory game. With our guide to the latest jewelry trends, there are plenty of options to showcase your style and touch for sparkling detail.
Gone are the days when everything has to match. With designers from Oscar de la Renta to Chanel to Tory Burch releasing mismatched earring designs (and every fashionista from Meghan Markle to Emma Watson embracing them), it’s one of the easiest ways to take a risk with your wardrobe. With some designs featuring more subtle, inverted pairs, others combine an age-old stud with a dramatically long dangle.

We all know that nostalgic trends are back with a vengeance, and designers are obliging by harkening back to earlier decades. Choker necklaces are infinitely flattering: they attract attention to the face (great for days when you meticulously contour), complement the graceful lines of the neck and can go with most any kind of blouse. Some are blingy, some are futuristic, some are retro – but all are fabulous.

In a season wrought with 1980s nostalgia, the comeback of the brooch may have been easily foreseen. I’ve never been a brooch gal myself, but the recent runway shows have made me realize that an ornate pin is the ultimate way to add a pop of sparkle and personality to any outfit. Once considered a symbol of class and wealth, a trendy brooch is sure to show others just how committed to couture you are.

Rings: Pinky, Stackable & Midi
We use our hands more than any part of our body – and rings are a way to gracefully adorn them. With stackable rings, midi rings and pinky rings being spotted across the board from the runway to street styles, you’re sure to find one – or five – that you’ll slip onto your finger every morning. The latest designs are all about simplicity – thin bands, simple jewels and modest centerpieces.
