Summer is starting to hot up and if you want to make the most of the warm weather, buying a new piece of jewelry to compliment your seasonal outfits makes sense.
Here are a few of the top trends in jewelry that are taking off this summer to give you an idea of what products and styles to go for.
Shell Bracelets Are Back
This might be a surprise to some, but 2019 looks set to be all about beach bum chic. This is epitomised by the rise of shell bracelets, alongside other pieces that are made using the kinds of detritus you’d normally ignore if you encountered it on the seashore.
Of course if you’re planning to hit the beach then a subtle shell bracelet will go perfectly with the style you adopt for the setting. And of course you’ll want to avoid shell jewelry overload, so try to wear no more than one piece that features the discarded home of a sea creature.
Bead Earrings Are In
In previous years the popularity of acrylic earrings has been a headline-grabber in many fashion publications. However, for 2019 you can mix things up with a pair of earrings that are made using ceramic beads rather than boring old plastic.
If you want to liven up your lobes in a classier, more traditional way, then a pair of 24k earrings is always a good option. They are a little more formal than their beady counterparts and could be suitable for turning heads at a black tie event on a balmy summer’s evening.
Extra Necklaces Are A Thing
It may sound odd, but all the hippest design houses and the models who represent them are pushing hard for the idea of wearing more than one necklace at the same time. That is not to say that everyone needs to walk around looking like Mr. T; the necklaces you choose to match with one another can be small and unassuming, but deliver a big impact when used in combination.
This all stems from last summer’s trend for layered coin necklaces, but has been expanded for 2019 to include a wider array of options. Pairing chains, stone pendants and much more besides is now accepted.
Look Out for Logos
Branding has always been important for high fashion, but it is now more acceptable than ever for major designers to plaster their initials across their products, including their jewelry.
From earrings that bear the logo of their maker to necklaces that are similarly adorned with the cast signature of their namesake, a lot of companies are getting in on the act in 2019.
The best part about this trend is that it can be as bold or as reserved as you feel suits your style. Some makers have opted for large, in your face branded jewelry while others have taken a low key approach that does not seem quite as overwhelming. It seems that the successful branding of jewelry pieces in this way could be far more than a flash in the pan since it benefits designers to keep pushing the market in this direction.
