All fashion collections presented this year and possibilities about how to enhance our looks with jewellery or other accessories are leaving no doubts related to what would be the best choice which we can find for example on this website VestiaireCollective. If you like to follow the fashion and be on the top you would have to consider very strongly
the following three most important accents underlined this year by almost every one fashion or jewellery designer and producer:
Everything that comes from images of the natural world is now trendy - flowers, butterflies, trees, birds of all kinds and colors, turtles – these are the prominent motifs in this year. It seems like the beauty found on Earth gave finally magnificent inspiration to designing artists. And so are colors and shapes mixed for quirky-cool effects, like in Swarovski Spring/Summer 2018 collection, that focuses on four new trends to characterize the new mood: Hacked Nature, No Normal, Spell Bound and Gang Star. This collection is a perfect example how far Swarovski.com can push the design using ideas from Nature – the most wonderful beauty creator. NewChic.com, TommyBahama.com and SaksFifthAvenue.com are this year entirely in flowers and fruits motifs. Vestiairecollective.com offers, like always, a mix of pre-owned collections including Gucci.com, Chanel, Dior, Vintage etc. at affordable prices. If you like to see all collections in one place, you probably need to shop at Harrods.com or Century 21 - c21stores.com.
The second most visual and most important nature-based trend is usage of natural materials in jewellery creation and mixing them with fabric of your clothes. Peacock feathers in earrings, amber or pearls in rings and bracelets, shells and pearls for pendants, leaves, leather, wood and natural fibres for other accessories – you may think, that you are back in good old 70s or hippie time. You add to these trends symbols of nature in form of charm necklaces from Gucci or their chunky metal chains adorned with pearls and diamonds, and you will see where it can lead you in choice. Cotton, leather, warm-colour pastels or bold color accessories make this year big difference. Harrods and Century 21 have very diversified collections. Swarovski proposes its Gang Star collection of bold crystals combined with rough look of leather.
Statement jewellery - maximalist
The most important trend this year is however completely stolen by statement necklaces, big earrings, bracelets and rings. They are bold, they are huge and they are original in shape – that would be in 2018 the best way to add personality and exclamation mark to your outfit. Ideas reflected perfectly in Swarovski’s “Hacked Nature” collection which includes motifs from tropical to digital colors and shapes to Gucci’s long and bold in shape necklaces of combined pearls with color diamonds; show us how the artists used their imagination this year.
Even the very classic in approach to design Diamond-usa.com Company offers this year beautifully cut to floral shapes orange-yellow natural diamond rings, Star-Fish or Club pendants and digitally shaped gold “IT-disc” pendants.
However, if you are in jewellery only topics these are the four indisputable trends taken from the runways. Everything this year is related to unique shapes.
Asymmetric big earrings, Uniqueness
The closest description I would think of would be: “mismatched pieces” that have interesting abstract shapes. They supposed to accent your individual statement about you, which means, that you can absolutely go your own way about them. Look in your jewellery box, pick and mix. Anything that stands apart from the rest, is inspired by nature, is embracing its imperfections and adding some touches of fine art has become the biggest jewellery trend this year. Unique, big and absolutely asymmetric are the key words in this area of accessories. 2018 is earrings party. And the bigger are the earrings the better. Use them to a cocktail dress or jeans outfit to elevate your daytime looks. TommyBahama and Saks Fifth Avenue, keeping their classical style, unfortunately are not too much into this new asymmetric trend. Neither seems Swarovski.com to support it very strongly.
If I were you I would definitively ask your grandmother for permission to go through her jewellery box. The brooches and the ornate pins of all sort are full back “à la mode”. You may place them on scarves, bags, lapels, hair, elegant hats, woollen hats, sweaters, costumes, coats, anywhere you see fit. This year we have a full invasion of brooches. From simple hash-tag to most lavish floral forms, from spiders to turtles or birds, every fashion house has them.
Yes, they are back, but not in the style of India-like abundance from 80s. This time delicacy is the most important characteristics. Something like a dainty gold chain with a small, single pearl or tiny butterfly attached to it. Diamonds-usa.com offers a wonderful collection. Check Harrods and you will see, that simple leather string with a colourful leave or shell adds greatly to your dress on warm sunny days. Maybe you could wear on your leg that old fashioned too-big amber bracelet you have long time ago inherited from your grandmother.
Tiny pinky-sized rings will add this year a wonderful delicate touch. The favourite seems to be always popular signet. NewChic.com and Tadashi Shoji however show that rings on every finger add more accents to the hand than just one ring.
