5 Autumn ‘16 Jewellery Trends
The summer months were enjoyable and bright, but sadly the time for bringing out the flowery dress and bo-ho sandals (at least until next year!). But of course, there’s jewellery you can wear along with your winter garments. Here’s the 5 biggest trends to know this winter.
1. Bracelet over sleeve
A stand-out look from the New York, Paris, London and Milan fashion weeks was the look of the bracelet worn over the top of the sleeve or a longer glove. Depending on the type of bracelet, it was worn either on top of the elbow or on the wrist. When wanting to choose what bracelet you want there is obviously a wide range to choose from: bangles, cuffs, wrap bracelets etc. As this is a unique style with it worn over your clothing you want to make sure it is a nice piece, but the one you choose is important. Jewellers like Peter Jackson have selections that cover any budget or style preference, selling designers like Thomas Sabo and Theo Fennell!
2. Return of the traditional pearl necklace
Over the past year, pearl necklaces have had been given more of a modern twist and have been worn as more of a choker or along with a longer necklace. This winter, the pearl necklace is set to be back with the traditional string, the pearls can be worn along with your bronze or tan coat as the traditional look of the coat will complement the pearls nicely. A pearl necklace is essentially a fairly generic piece and it is hard to differentiate between two different strings (unless you can afford the riches to purchase a real one) so just purchase one that fits to standard.
3. Across-ear earrings
Another trend that showed from the fashion weeks was the bigger earing that comes across the top of the ear. Of course this type of earring is different to the conventional so it gives a stronger look to any outfit choice as it will likely to be the what will stand out the most. The across-ear earring would likely be worn as part of your evening outfit and would be complimented best with a long silk dress and pair of high heeled shoes. This is a piece that should be available at a fairly affordable price and there will be no need to look towards the higher prices set by Paco Rabbane.
4. Punk is still big
The punk-rock look has been one that has been visited a few times over the past few seasons, and going in to winter ‘16 it seems as though this surge is set to continue. The punk look is big across a number of jewellery pieces with thick chokers still a blossoming look. With the necklaces and bracelets, the colours of black and chrome will go well with the standard winter wardrobe. These types of pieces aren’t likely to give you too much of an issue as far as price is concerned.
This is a trend that helps make any outfit stand out, and going in to this winter it appears multiple layers of jewellery are set to give to shine to the gloomy weather. This can be done with one piece of jewellery that is designed to be multi layered or by getting a several different coloured pieces. Judging by the respective fashion weeks it is the metallic jewellery that is set to be in the layers. There are many options for getting your multilayers, the one-piece design is likely to be the best option and will go well with a variety of evening and day-time outfits.
