While everyone’s scoping out micro-mini skirts and fussing over ultra low-rise jeans, this summer I’m making a beeline for the accessories. Namely, the jewelry. The old me would cling to delicate gold rings and minimalist necklaces barely visible to the naked eye, but the jewelry circling around this season is simply too good to unceremoniously fade into the background. Let me demonstrate.
Comparable to the shift towards vibrant and bold colors within ready-to-wear, the jewelry sphere has also embraced ultra-saturated hues and statement shapes. Swarovski and Mondo Mondo are just two of the brands that have featured colored crystals heavily within their latest collections, and plenty more big names are taking heed. Other jewelry trends simultaneously heating up the scene? Chokers are making their grand return for another moment in the sun, and like just about everything else the Y2K wave has infiltrated in the form of Mariah Carey-inspired butterfly designs. Maximalism is rearing its head, and it’s a sight to see.
