Try these new jewellery trends for a sure-fire way to liven up your outfits
Max out your chain
Bigger is better when it comes to chains this season – and an oversized necklace like this can make a real statement. Whether you prefer silver, gold or even a touch of resin, these chains have impact, especially when worn with a simple shirt, white T-shirt or black roll-neck. Keep other jewellery to a minimum and let your chunky chain take the spotlight.
Mix up textures
We have 18 months of video meetings to thank for the return of the statement earring, with some serious shoulder-dusters seen at Miu Miu and JW Anderson this season. While less likely to give you earache, these leather-effect hoops still have standout appeal, thanks to the unusual mix of textures and bold design.
Rings, rings and more rings
Remember when you used to go to your mum’s jewellery box and try on everything at once? Well that’s cool now! Particularly when it comes to your hands, where multiple rings look charmingly eclectic. The key is to find a point of consistency between your rings, whether that’s the colour of the metal, the stones or a theme – after that, the world is your oyster.
Go off the cuff
From fierce cuffs to glass beaded bracelets, arm candy is back in a big way this season. If you can’t cope with anything too jangly, try a simple gold bracelet like this one. Make like a stylist and layer over your sleeve for extra sartorial points.
Rethink those pearls
No longer associated solely with grandmothers and royals, pearls have had a modern update thanks to designers such as Simone Rocha. Look for irregular, quirky shapes – this pearl-effect necklace is a great example – and layer up with gold or silver jewellery for a more-is-more approach.
