Jewelry is like the frosting & sprinkles on the cupcake that a great outfit is! It is an affordable way to add a trend to your closet without breaking the bank and can be worn again and again hopefully for many seasons.
I am seeing 2 huge jewelry trends happening right now for necklaces; the choker & the pendent necklace. (Talk about opposites LOL)
So a choker is a very short necklace that wraps the neck. Think very Victorian era or frankly 1992 or the movie Clueless. So far I am seeing this mostly on teens & young women but have seen it done well and stylishly over more ages- just be careful.
I love this style because it allows you to wear it as a wrap bracelet OR as a choker. Versatility is amazing- it takes your cost per wear and drops that lower & (everyone loves that). Also when this jewelry trend goes away, you will still have a great wrap bracelet.
Pendent Necklaces are long chain necklaces with a great decorative pendent. These are amazing! You can pick colors and textures you love but the long silhouette of it really elongates your look. This makes you look longer, taller & in turn, thinner (most of us dig that). Also what a great way to take a closet staple like a basic crew neck tee & sprinkle a bit of fun on to get a finished look. It really is the difference between okay and head turning style. Here are a few examples.
PS- if you find something you love (EVEN IF IT’S NOT THIS TREND) wear it! You really can wear what you want 😀 And if you are worried about keeping your jewelry nice, check out this post about 5 ways to keep your jewelry cleaner and nicer for longer!
