What’s old is out, but also sort of in again. Plenty of the looks turning heads on spring/summer runways were epic twists on timeworn classics: inventive pearls, supersized hoops, and exaggerated chains were practically a prerequisite for the shows’ marquee names. But as big and sculptural as styles were, they were also decidedly intentional, reflecting the industry’s shift toward “responsible fashion”—that which is thoughtful of its impact, its practices, and its byproducts. So then it’s no wonder the accessories stealing the most looks are classic pieces that have been recycled into imaginative new creations.
The Singular Solitaire
Yes, you read that right. The solitaire is trending. But beyond solitaire engagement rings and fashion rings with a large whopping single stone, the idea of a “solitaire” now means so much more. Lots of big-name fashion houses accessorized their models with a solo earring—big, loud, beautiful earrings on just one ear. Don’t think you have the confidence to try this just yet? That’s okay. Just keep in mind that even though earrings come in pairs, you don’t have to wear them that way.
Whether in the form of a chain-link bracelet or a sculptural statement ring, silver jewelry is officially having a comeback. An extra chic, modern way to incorporate the metal is to embrace one of the most classic pieces of silver accessories: the watch. A smooth stainless steel or titanium timepiece adds a clean, sporty touch to any look.
Jewelry with vibrant pops of color, from subtle and simple to loud and artsy, was all over the spring/summer shows. Some of the most-seen styles included fun and playful, bold and costume-y, and bohemian and feminine. Try out this perfect-for-spring trend with a colored gemstone bracelet or necklace.
