We always talk about trends for clothing, but we are getting it wrong. The easiest way to stay up on trends is to keep your closet filled with staples, essentials, and basics that are timeless. Then, build upon them as a foundation with trendy accessories. Buying trendy accessories like jewelry is a super fun way to update your style. Here are some of the biggest jewelry trends for 2020 for you to try out.
Colorful Beaded Bracelets
Think old school friendship bracelet vibes when approaching this trend. Companies started coming back out with small colorful beaded bracelets and necklaces that seem to be throwing it back to the old school days. Also, numerous brands are making these bracelets with lettered beads spelling out various messages. Super cute and funky. If you are like me, my summer style is a pair of denim shorts and a tank top, so this is a perfect way to make your basics pop.
Gold Hoop Earrings
Hoop earrings have been around for hundreds of years, but 2020 gave them new mainstream flair. Hoops come in all sizes so it is easy to create a collection and mix and match them with various outfits to achieve this jewelry trend. The best part is they can be worn with literally everything. Also, they are a staple trend that always seems to swing back in style.
Gold layered necklaces are so popular right now, and they offer something so classic. If you throw on a model off duty look with sneakers and layer some necklaces, you instantly look put together. This gives you a chance to build up your jewelry collection or use pieces that you already own. Play around with different thicknesses and lengths of chains to see what looks best. Also, if putting on 4 necklaces at a time is too much for you, various brands make layered necklaces that all come together with one clip for convenience.
When I say pearls, I don’t mean your grandma’s perfectly round and symmetrical pearl necklace. I mean pieces that incorporate pearls in a new light. The random shaped pearls are really on trend in statement earrings, tear drop earrings, or featured in beaded bracelets. This is an easy to wear jewelry trend to try for 2020.
Just like layering necklaces is trending, so is wearing earrings in multiple holes in your ear at once. An easy way to get on trend is to wear little hoops or various huggie earrings all along your ear. Play around the various shapes and simplistic studs. Stick with a consistent metal, making them all gold to achieve this jewelry trend. Silver is taking the back seat this season.
A simple chain anklet, bracelet, or necklace is a timeless piece that is super popular right now. Often when looking at jewelry we focus on the pedant, but what about looking at the beauty of a detailed chain? Simplicity is classic and easy to layer for this jewelry trend. A chain anklet is super in for summer because they look gorgeous with tanned skin or great when wearing sandals.
We all went through the phase of monogramming various things in our closet or room, but that season is over. The way to transition this tradition into trendy is to think Sex and the City Carrie Bradshaw’s “Carrie” nameplate necklace. Having a necklace with your first name or earrings with your initials on them are super on trend. Also, having rings/bracelets/necklaces with the year you were born is a fun new jewelry trend for 2020!
