Do you wear the same watch every single day? Are you at a loss for coming up with new ways to style your favorite bracelets and necklaces?
Not to worry - with the coming of the summer season there are plenty of beautiful jewelry trends getting hotter and hotter. Here are the top five trends to incorporate into your wardrobe this year.
Summer is the time to pull your hair back in a ponytail and play with different kinds of braids. This is a fun way to beat the heat and still look fabulous, but you need the right earrings to tie an outfit together.
Whether you're headed out for brunch or going to the beach, make sure you've got your big earrings with you. The most popular options are classic stud earrings coated in metal or more artisan, boho-style earrings that dangle and have many colors.
As fun as the new earring trends mentioned above are, hoops will always be in style. This year, though, the best hoops are a bit thicker than what you may be used to.
Thick hoops are made to accent the face and complement an outfit much better than their thin counterparts. They pair beautifully with a simple jeans and a t-shirt look or a fun, flowy maxi dress or summer mini skirt.
When you think of winter, you immediately imagine cute sweaters and cozy scarves. When it's time to peal these layers away in the summer, you have more skin to play with.
Make use of sleeve-less summer styles and start wearing more arm candy. The popular trend this year is to stack many thin bracelets at a time, or even wear a few bulky styles together.
These show you have an eye for style. Rather than just stepping out of the house in your everyday watch, you can add a few bracelets to make the watch stand out more, or skip this accessory altogether and go for the bold aesthetic of many bracelets.
Another thing the latest jewelry trends are encouraging is more self-expression and less matching. You don't have to wear the same earring on each year, or even think twice about having many bracelets styled perfectly together.
This summer, the most popular jewelry trends are all about breaking rules and being yourself. Opt for a large, bold earring on one ear and a simple stud on the other. Maybe wear a thin dangle to offer an even stronger contrast.
There's mixing and matching and then there's layering different jewelry pieces together. Many ladies are stepping out in chokers layered with long necklaces, or stacked rings in addition to their many bracelets.
That is the trend of the time - pairing clothing items with accessories that layer to create texture and diversity. You definitely have to get a little creative with this trend in the hot summer sun. But, when you pull it off, it's a total head-turner.
It's one thing to know which jewelry trends are hot right now and another to know where to find the best jewelry. Maybe you need a thin body necklace before hitting the beach or you need the perfect pair of earrings to make your style stand out.
