We’re not talking bubble necklaces and big, frilly earrings. No ma’am. No chunky rings, or a ton a huge cuff bracelets. This post is going to be all about the massive transition in jewelry trends as we head into the summer months. Right now, less is more. We’ve heard that before, but it especially reigns true when people like Kristen Cavallari are paving the runway of accessories. We’re taking a major turn from bright, colorful, and large fashion jewelry to more minimal, dainty, timeless pieces. (I like to think that we’re just being a little more classic in our choices, but clothing trends are a whole different story…)
Simple gold chains like these are the perfect addition to any collection. They’re affordable yet upscale and as classic as anything. I love these with the diamond accents on the end. I’ll definitely be picking up one of these for myself!
Gold jewelry might be the primary “color” to grab right now, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t mix metals. YES, I said that. Stacking is in. You can utilize one simple, dainty piece, or stack several of them – even if they’re different “colors”. I’ve always been a fan of mixing metals, whether that’s in home decor or accessories, but now it’s widely accepted!
Another big trend right now is the “coin” charm. (This is far different than our TBT John Wind necklaces, okay ladies?) Whether it’s on the end of a necklace or a bracelet, and whether it’s a true coin or a coin-shaped initial, it gives just enough “spark” without overwhelming the outfit. I think that right now, we’re allowing our jewelry say everything.
I’ve linked some of my favorite pieces in this post, all under $100. Don’t get me wrong – I think that these styles are timeless, so I would definitely support a splurge on a nice piece or set of jewelry, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Let me know what your favorite pieces are!
And just like with anything else, trends change, so it’s important for us to rotate our pieces from our collection when they’ve had their time. For one, that makes room for new stuff, and two, it gives us some extra money to buy those new pieces!
