In a time when above-the-keyboard dressing has reigned supreme, OTT jewellery pieces are in the spotlight. Whether you have a penchant for Gen-Z approved resin rings or incline towards fuss-free, dainty chains, runways across the globe have offered a myriad of adornments to take your pick from. From classic grandma pearls getting a millennial upgrade to exaggerated fringe jewels, the season is all about nostalgia whilst making a statement. In case you’re on the search to add some key pieces to your stash, trust this sparkling edit to help you make the right choice.
1. Fringe Benefits
Layers of gems and pearls stacked together may have been absent from the sartorial radar, but the ornate jewels are making a comeback this season. From dangling earrings to fringe necklaces, consider this trend as your standalone element to do the work.
2. Pearl Party
Don’t restrict the sophisticated pearls to highlight your decolletage. It’s time to break the boundaries with the classic. Take inspiration from Prabal Gurung and layer your stones or let Giambattista Valli show you how to elevate pearls with chic headbands.
3. Flower Power
Flowers may be well reserved for the Spring, but we’re carrying the floral energy forward this year. The soft, rather feminine element gets an edgy upgrade with metallic roses at Alberta Ferretti and beaded versions at Simone Rocha.
4. Chain Reaction
The chain-link necklace trend is going nowhere and will continue to dominate this season. But it’s time to move over from the oversized, chunky forms to reimagined versions of the accessory. Think layering with dainty chains, colour-blocking and mix-matched iterations.
5. Summer Camp Jewellery
No, this trend is not for the summers. Inspired by playful accessories from the ’90s, summer camp jewellery has transcended from realms of luxury to the grids of celebrities this season. Think BFF bracelets, initial necklaces, beaded chokers and more.
