Each season, catwalks, celebrities and designers introduce new jewelry trends for the fashion-forward to gobble up. This summer’s hot looks include new shapes, new colors, new design motifs and new ways to wear jewelry. While a trend like sea-themed jewelry may only work during the summer months – or on your next cruise vacation – many of summer’s hottest looks have just begun to take wing, easily transitioning to autumn 2015 looks and beyond.
“This summer’s sea-inspired jewelry trend pays homage to corals, sea urchins, seahorses and shells,” according to The Oklahoman. Wearers can choose popular sea-theme charm bracelets or pendants to showcase the trend. They can wear colorful, bold jewelry juxtaposed against cool blue tops or opt for a more subdued look with an 18K gold starfish pendant paired with a sophisticated lace evening dress.
Jewelry worn in unconventional ways
Rocker chic is in vogue right now, with celebrities like Diane Kruger layering up the upper ear cuffs to look like piercings. Earrings aren’t the only pieces of jewelry migrating to unconventional locations: E! Online reports that rings are transitioning from the base of the finger up to the nails, bracelets are sliding down from wrists to hands, and dangling necklaces are being replaced with high collar chokers.
Geometric jewelry designs
Jeweller Magazine reports that “a new minimalism has emerged in jewellery with a focus on geometric shapes and clean lines.” This trend is not exactly new – it was spotted on the spring/summer 2013 catwalks – but it’s continued into modern collections that feature graphic geo prints, triangular silhouettes, tribal motifs, layered lines, circular patterns, hexagons, and squares.
“The sharp angles, repetition and clean lines that characterize the geo influence results in jewelry pieces that are not only wearable, but are artful and daring, too,” summarizes Sonia Merlino, general manager of the Innerpower brand based out of Australia and New Zealand.
Rose gold jewelry
Gold is a precious metal that will never lose its luster. However, the in-demand shade of gold comes and goes with the times. US global trend researcher Lindsey Alt from Fashion Snoops dubbed summer 2015 “the season of the gold rush” – particularly with “the recently popular rose gold.”
As fashion designer Zoe Chicco explains: “I love the way gold jewelry looks against the skin in the summer.” InStyle Magazine chose rose gold as the hot gold shade of 2015. Top jewelry designers are coming out with rose gold watches, necklaces and matching hand bags.
