Are you ready to go BIG with this season’s statement must haves?!
During the pandemic we adopted loungewear as our uniform, and paired it with minimal accessories, like dainty layered chains.
But the trend has shifted, and now glamour is back in a big way as this season’s fashion aesthetic, with big bold statement accessories taking centre stage.
It’s evident that, post pandemic, people are ready to welcome a touch of extravagancy back into their lives and are throwing off the sweatpants and getting dressed up again!
And we can see this collective shift playing out across social media with a glorious parade of pearls, metals, feathers, and more.
Spring/Summer Statement trends
This season the nod is towards big statement necklaces, earrings, rings, and bracelets, which of course is music to my ears! And included in the mix are motifs like locks and keys, flowers, and other fauna.
And pearls are back!! But for this season they’re going to be extra big and worn either as one strand close to the neck or a few longer strands layered together.
We can see from the runway shows for many of the top designers, like Valentino and Hermès, that among the top 2022 jewellery trends are extra big links. Oversized gold chains make bold statements as solo pieces and are also being layered with other over-the-top pieces.
While extra big links in gold is without doubt the top trend, there are those of us who prefer big links in other colours than gold. If this is you, I’ve got you well and truly covered! Over in my online shop you’ll find a gorgeous selection of hand-crafted necklaces with oversized big links in black, white, or brown that are all made from natural, organic materials.
Another Spring/Summer trend is the simple pendant necklace that will never go out of style!
Accessories express who you are
Regardless of the current trend, I’ve always loved statement jewellery, which is evident in the fact that I’ve always designed big statement pieces.
Jewellery is one of the many ways we can express our character and unique sense of style. For me, a bold statement piece elevates an outfit with an intoxicating combination of daring beauty and effortless luxury.
When statement pieces are your thing, you’ll always feel fresh, up to date, and self-expressed.
Choosing and wearing your statement must haves
The beauty of this season’s statement must haves is there’s no restrictions! It’s all about self-expression and going big with your accessories in whatever way works for you.
So, do you prefer to pick one area of your accessories to make a statement with? Or do you want to go all out and rock a statement combination à la Iris Apfel, who is the Queen of this look?
I love layering up bracelets to create a bold look, and when it comes to statement earrings, they need to frame your face and draw attention to your features without weighing you down.
But for me, nothing emphasizes an outfit quite like a statement necklace – they are my eternal love affair and help me create the extra touches that go a long way to expressing my personal style.
There are a few reasons why I will always design and wear big pieces.
To begin with, a statement piece makes a simple outfit more interesting. For example, jeans and t-shirt or black trousers and a white top, paired with a big chunky necklace or pendant, immediately gives you an edgier look.
They dress up a casual weekend look.
Paired with a sweatshirt and jeans, a statement necklace adds a touch of feminine flare.
And it creates a bold aesthetic with prints and pop of colour.
Finally, for a structured office look, a fabulous statement necklace adds a playful element that expresses your individuality.
If you want to stand out and make a fashion statement, I’m a firm believer that a safe way to do that is to invest in and wear statement jewellery.
Let’s be honest, we’ve probably all got some clothes in our wardrobes that we aren’t wearing because they’re dull. I can almost guarantee, that if you add one statement accessory, you’ll see the same outfit in a totally different light.
If you’re ready to up your style game and add a special item to your accessories collection, come over to my online shop and thrill your senses with the array of hand-crafted statement pieces that are available. Happy shopping!!
