The ‘70s hippie trend that’s been a hit on the runways is also influencing jewelry, but it’s not the only major trend for jewelry in 2015. Whether you prefer to keep your jewelry minimal or like big statement pieces, take a look at the fresh ways to accessorize your look this year.
From the single earring and chokers to crystals and metal cuffs, check out the major jewelry trends of 2015, including the hottest colors and stones. Pick your favorites and complete your style with the trendiest pieces this year.
The Single Earring
Asymmetry is going mainstream, and the single earring trend is the best way to rock this look. From the runways to street style, the single statement earring is definitely making an impact, but if you feel it’s too edgy for you, there’s another way to rock an asymmetrical look.
Pair a big statement ring with a matching stud or a smaller dangle earring.
Coming back from the ‘90s, chokers are also one of the major jewelry trends 2015. Chanel, Dior, Givenchy and many more fashion houses have embraced it for Spring, offering a wide variety of dramatic look. Forget about subtle versions of the choker and go big and bold, either with chunky chains or big stones.
Inspired by the retro vibes that have been all over the runway, fringe jewelry is getting mainstream thanks to plenty of inspired interpretations. From chain fringe to strings of beads, there are plenty of ways to include fringe in your look, as long as it’s dramatic. You can even mix fringe jewelry with other fringed accessories or clothes for a chic look.
One of the biggest jewelry trends for 2015, brass is definitely one metal that should be a big part of your accessory selection. Its gorgeous tones make the perfect choice for both chunky pieces and more delicate jewelry. It was seen on the runway in countless collections, from Lanvin and Valentino to Tom Ford and Nina Ricci.
While dainty pendants are always a chic choice, spring 2015 is all about making a bold statement with them. Long and heavy, pendants have made a big splash in collections from Hermes, Derek Lam, Celine, and Edun. Chunky stones or big metal is the way to go, and don’t be afraid to go super low with a pendant that will take your look to the next level.
When it comes to earrings, going back to the ‘70s isn’t far enough. Try one of the most sophisticated jewelry trends of 2015 and go Art Deco for your vintage earrings. Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Christian Dior, and Proenza Schouler showed plenty of baguette cut earrings with sophisticated vintage details. Don’t be afraid to go over the top when it comes to earrings, including styles as old as cameos.
Pinks and Purples
Marsala, Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, is making a big impact on runways and design, and jewelry isn’t excluded. Purples and pinks are great color choices, but you should also experiment with deeper reds. Color treated diamonds are also an emerging trend, so you can go luxe with the trend all the way.
One of the biggest jewelry trends in 2015 is retro vibes, particularly hippie and bohemian pieces. Fringe is already a big trend on its own, but this style of jewelry has a lot more to offer, from feather decorations to bead embellishments. Find your inspiration in ‘60s and ‘70s bohemian pieces and you’ll be able to perfect your chic and trendy look.
If you don’t want to spend too much on precious stones, you can complete your look with agate, rock quartz and even marble pieces. Look for two toned crystalline structures for a dramatic look or keep it more subtle by choosing shape over colors.
