Whether it’s because of the economy or sensory overload, fashion, in general, is taking it back to the basics. The current trend, from what I have experienced for jewelry is all about fundamentals.
Although statement pieces are less of a classic basic and more of a trend, they are still considered the focal point to give your entire wardrobe a boost.
Chunky pieces, chains and bib necklaces continue to be great looks. They can really dress up the clean lines of a simple night time look, but don’t put them away during the day. Reinvent your white t-shirt and jeans by adding an attention getter, around your neck.
Personally, when I am wearing a statement necklace, I like to keep the rest of the outfit simple, sophisticated and subdued… allowing my jewelry to catch someone’s eye and therefore establish a connection with them, who want to know more about the piece or how to get it.
If you want to be fashion forward, look to bold earrings as the next statement piece of jewelry coming down the trend runway. Long, jewel encrusted or oversized, earrings are becoming the piece to have.
