2021 Best Jewelry Trends to Shop 

April 14, 2021 | By | Reply More

Don’t despair if you feel like you just updated your jewelry wardrobe! Trends are cyclical, so what you wore last year is only in hibernation for a little while and is sure to return again.

Chunky Jewelry

“An outfit without jewelry is like a cupcake without frosting.” —  Unknown

Yes, just as clothing trends are cyclical, so are jewelry trends. Last Christmas we were wearing delicate chains and this summer we are wearing chunky chains. Our wardrobes have become more practical, turning the everyday—even sweatshirts—into bold statements, so our jewelry trends toward statement pieces, too. The finishing touches of our fashion look require boldness in shape, size, and color in our jewelry, too. And what can be more fashionable than a boldly-gold, heavy chain?

It’s not only chains that are going chunky, though. Dress up that little black dress (an absolute staple in every well-dressed woman’s wardrobe) with a chunky bracelet. It’s amazing how the look will change! A bracelet like this one will surprisingly go with many outfits, like oversized trench coats to flirty, extra-short mini skirts.

Attitude Empowering Enamel

You need an attitude adjustment this summer. Upward! Empower your mood with enameled jewelry, from rings to earrings to bracelets. Colored pieces reflect the 1980s when boldly colored fashion mostly came from plastic in neon colors. This year’s trend is a bit more lasting, though, since we’re talking gold and enamel that will last through many years, unlike the plastic pieces you probably tossed when they started turning white as the plastic wore out.

Show Your Pearly Whites

…or blues, or even blacks. Yes! Pearls are trending again, but this time a little differently. And yes, your classic pearls are, well, classics, so they’ll never go out of style. But shapes other than classic round are in this summer, so go with imperfect freshwater pearls, like teardrops or elongated styles that are a bit out-of-the-ordinary.

Stacked and Layered

Not into chunky? That’s okay, you can achieve the same bold statement by stacking and layering rings, chains, even earrings! You can also combine white and yellow gold, tricolored jewelry, or even gold and silver. Choose chains of differing lengths and colors, or even mix your earrings up! Mismatched earrings are another great look this year, so hang onto those singles you hoped you’d find the mates for and wear them together to achieve a one-of-a-kind look that shows off the very best, very trendy you this summer.
