What I most love about jewelry is its power to transform. A simple piece tones down a busy outfit, keeps things discreet yet interesting, and takes elegance to the next level. A statement piece is the life of the party, especially for girls like me who love sticking to simpler clothes. I also love the details and intricacies that can be found in jewelry, as well as the sentimental value that it may carry.
Overall, there are no rules when it comes to jewelry -- go as extravagant or as minimal as you'd like. If you're into all things sparkly as much as I am, here are 5 Spring 2016 jewelry trends to expect in the months ahead!
1. Au Naturale
A current trend in the product and service world - not just limited to fashion - is wanderlust, a sudden curiosity, followed by an appreciation of the natural world. This is clearly reflected in jewelry. This spring, we'll see jewelry that makes heavy use of more natural, less refined materials like wire, pearls, and geodes.
From mismatched earrings to perfectly imperfect headwear, asymmetry is one of the coolest spring 2016 jewelry trends. Asymmetrical looks convey individuality and evoke a sense of intrigue.
3. Oversized Earrings
Indulge in ear candy! Large statement earrings were popular at the SAG Awards and Grammys and will perfectly complete many spring 2016 ensembles, from complicated x-necklines to simple white shirts.
4. Short Statement Necklaces
A holdover from 2015, statement pieces around the collar are still a major trend to watch in 2016. These necklaces range from romantic, floral statement-makers to sensual, edgy chokers. No matter how you wear these, you'll draw attention to your neckline and face - rarely a bad choice.
From basic black bands to gilded barrettes and bejeweled headbands, we will be seeing all types of hair adornments this season. There are so many styles to choose from (a few examples are below), you really can't go wrong. The key is to adorn your hair with something that expresses your personality.
