Jewellery trends you need to try this summer
Many of us have our favourite piece of jewellery; it could be a necklace given to us by a grandparent, a pair of earrings we bought for a special occasion and our engagement and wedding rings that we (should) wear every day.
However, like clothing, jewellery trends change every season and if you haven’t yet dived into the world of accessorising it might be time. Consider these jewellery trends to try out this summer and give your outfits a revamp:
Look out for dream catcher inspired pieces, with crystals and feathers stealing the show for summer that would work perfectly at festivals and with the current 70s trend that we’re enjoying on the high street. Check out Blue Vanilla’s 70s collection to pair your hippie chic-style jewellery with – along with that fun, printed bum bag (there’s no shame in using one) to keep all your bits and pieces safe in.
Under the sea
Marine life is also having its moment in the limelight, as Valentino showcased delicate shell and coral jewellery pieces at its spring/summer shows. If you’re looking for a statement piece to enhance your outfit (that doesn’t have a Valentino price tag) take a look at KT Ferris Creations’ handmade, intricate jewellery, featuring barnacles, shells and coral. Designed in America, KT imagines then creates every piece herself and then handcrafts them using crystal and various metals. This trend is perfect for those summer days spent at the beach or nights out with a cocktail in hand, at an outside bar.
Always wanted your nose or helix pierced but never had the nerve to go through with it? Well, you’re in luck because a big trend for summer 2015 is faux piercings, which clip on and can be easily removed. While you might not want to go for the Rodarte look, which featured multiple faux piercings on the models’ eyebrows, you could opt for a fake nose ring that opens and closes to clip on your nostril – and horrify your mum when you go round for a roast on Sunday.
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Chanel’s slogan jewellery at the recent spring/summer shows featured bold statements such as “make fashion not war” and “ladies first” and is an easy trend to pick up for the coming summer months. Retailers such as ASOS and other high street stores are stocking similar designs with which to adorn your wrists. Tatty Devine is also a brand synonymous with a quirky slogan and name jewellery, and you can even customise what’s written on yours.
When it comes to mixing up your jewellery this summer be sure to choose pieces that are well made, comfortable to wear (ideally you want to forget you even have any jewellery on until people compliment you on it) and that make you happy whenever you put them on.
