Cascading necklaces, glass-shell body chains, silk-frill earrings and a lot more

Pretty seemingly, the sartorial trends that are crawling down from the runways are unapologetically bold and maximal; think heavy hoops, coloured enamels, 80’s hearts, seashells, pearls, spare change (coins), celestial jewelry, match-sets, and many more outlandish ones are in the queue. Do you need a voguish update for your jewelry closet? Simply move over the barely-seen accessory trend because this is indeed the season to channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw. In case you’re confused about what to fill your shopping cart with, here we’ve got four major trends that you’ll spot gracing a lot of necks, ears, and hands.

Sea shells galore | SS19 saw brands like Michael Kors, Etro, Missoni, Altuzarra, Anna Sui, enticing the runway with ‘shells’ frenzy. Unlike the seashells in rope chokers that you sported as a kid, this trend is reincarnating with mini conch, tulip shells, colours, and textures; changing ways from luxe to chic to fresh – with seashells dipped in 18k gold to seashells mixed with crystals, pearls, beads and knitwear to the fun and statement-making coloured shells.

Contemporary pearls | After flooding the runways of the design powerhouses like Chanel, Oscar De la Ranta, Prabal Gurung, and Mizuki ‘pearls’ are present in every trendsetter’s closet but only this time, in unexpected forms and styles. Apparently, this classic oceanic gem is now infused with maximalism, thanks to SS19 that you can embody this classic in a slew of styles – from oversized pearl hoops, petite pearl drops, ear cuffs, sculptural bracelets, trinkets, playful earrings to statement necklaces. They are ever-feminine yet edgy and bold like never before, you could combine them with the hot-seashell trend to add an extra oomph to your style. Click here to don pearls like never before.

Statement earrings | Dainty earrings are so passé; this season go for colourful crystals, bold ear cuffs, crystal-embellishments, mismatched earrings, over-the-top hoops, the key is being extra. Designers like Miu Miu, Chanel, Balmain, Balenciaga are opting for the-bigger-the-better approach in earrings this season. Why shouldn’t you? Next time you step out, have your outfit take a backseat and think chock-full of playful earrings in unique silhouettes.

Layering flair | Paco Rabanne set the tone for layering this season with Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli reinforcing the trend with cascading necklaces and charm bracelets. If you’re a patron to layering then good luck for experimentation – mix the textures, styles, lengths, metals; but if you’re a novice take it from Lucy Williams, her distinctive style of layering will help you give a subtle nod to this trend. Also, feel free to add some personality with charms and stones, and a cool retro t-shirt of course.
