Fashion Jewelry – What’s in and What’s Not

When the term ‘fashion jewelry’ is applied, it is important to remember that the keyword here is ‘fashion’ and that in itself should be able to tell you about the kind of jewelry that we are talking about. Cheap or maybe not and here today and gone tomorrow. Like clothes fashion jewelry too changes with the season. If you are someone who tires easily then this type of jewelry is perfect for you. Here’s a look at what you can expect in trends of fashion jewelry this season:

The Look

The ‘punk’ look is definitely out but the ‘girly’ look is in. Good or bad news? Well that depends entirely on you. Fashion jewelry seems to be making a comeback and how! Chunky chains, bracelets, toe rings, larger than life earrings are all fading away. The look now is more delicate. Having said this, the one thing that seems to be in common for all fashion jewelry, chunky or not is that silver seems to be the unanimous color of choice.

The ‘Bling’ thing

Glitter is definitely in. The more the better! Sparkling fashion jewelry is really hot this season. Zircon earrings, necklaces, bracelets on both hands are definitely a must have. Wearing these goes a long way in completing the girly look. The one good thing about glittering fashion jewelry is that if worn properly it can also pass of as classy jewelry with a formal outfit without looking too loud or outlandish.

The stone story

Stones have always been an integral part of fashion jewelry. Artificial, colored and semi precious stones is what gives fashion jewelry most of their charm. Artificial stones are available in almost any color to match your outfits and moods. Stones like zircons and semi precious stones like jade and turquoise give fashion jewelry an air of timeless elegance and class. Rhinestones are also making a comeback and are excellent to complete that girlie look.

Timeless classics

While fashion jewelry comes and goes with the wind, there are some timeless classics that will never ever go out of style. It would do you good to have these as part of your collection. It is probably as integral a part of your wardrobe as a little and long black dress is. Single stone earrings and pendants are always a good thing to have.

Zircons, red and green stones make for wise buys. Pearls, both black and white are also a must have. Single stand pearl necklaces and earrings will never ever go out of style and what’s more? They can be teamed with almost anything you wear. Pearls might not be sparkly like the other stones, but it can do wonders for a subtle, chic and classy look.

The best part about fashion jewelry is that you never need to throw things away. Just recycle. Put away the jewelry from last season – it’s sure to make a comeback sometime soon. Having said all of this, if what you have read doesn’t appeal to you, then there’s not need to sweat it, it’ll soon be out of fashion. Who knows the fashion trends next season might bend in your favor.
