Summer is the season of bold bijoux! From jewelry that conjures old sleepaway camp memories, to sleek statement pieces that are perfect for hot August nights, we’ve rounded up the five biggest bauble trends of the moment.
Channel your inner globe-trotter with bright, woven accessories and hand-painted trinkets that look like they were collected from the earth’s most far-flung locales. Sport them on an exotic trip — or just wear them to work: Vacation is a state of mind, after all.
Minimalists will delight in this sophisticated look, which pairs classic pearls with of-the-moment yellow gold. Keeping the colors simple means there’s room to experiment with edgy, audacious pieces, such as a tough-looking two-finger ring or an Instagram-friendly ear cuff.
Attention campers! Intricately braided friendship bracelets, painted puka shells and strands of candy-colored beads all come together for the top throwback trend of the summer. Wear these vibrant baubles piled up around your neck and stacked high on either arm for a delightfully nostalgic trip to the beach — or a singalong ‘round the campfire.
Make any outing an affair to remember with this classically romantic style. Reach for delicate gold chains, prim charms and even a heart-shaped pendant to create a vintage-inspired look with a distinctively modern flair. Top it off with a sweet signet ring — finding one with the initials of a secret crush engraved on the front is optional.
Break all the rules by layering one attention-grabbing piece after another. Shamelessly mix metals, pair oversize earrings with a statement necklace, and finish off the look with a fistful of colorful cocktail rings. It doesn’t really matter where you’re headed — this style is all about standing out from the crowd.
