10 Major Fashion Week TrendsMarch 22, 2018
The Shy Need Not Apply
If your style tends to be more understated, perhaps now is a good time to tap into your adventurous side when it comes to your spring jewelry looks. It was all about making a statement on the fashion runways for Spring Fashion Week 2018! Here are 10 major trends you’ll see glam fashionistas showing off everywhere.
1. Animal Kingdom
From bold butterflies to raging, roaring tigers, you can’t go wrong flaunting the animal jewelry trend with your favorite spring fashions – now hitting wrists, ears and necks everywhere.
2. Bold Brooches
These are not your grandmother’s gemstones. There’s nothing demure about the industrial-influenced heavy metal brooches that graced lapels during Spring Fashion Week.
Is your personality more subdued? You’re in luck and will be glad to hear multi-layered necklaces are still very much in vogue! This spring you’ll see simple pendants gracing longer, simple chains.
4. Mix & Match
If you can’t decide which pair of stunning statement earrings to wear with your weekend warrior outfit Saturday night, this is the season you can wear one of each and feel perfectly poised as you sip your Pinot.
5. Tropical Oasis
Perhaps all the winter gloom got the best of designers because the runways were filled with sparkling leis, shells and all things associated with surf and sand done up in fine gemstones. Ticket to Fiji not included!
Do you love dangling gold and silver earrings? You’ll still need to wear yours with extensions because a major trend this spring is earrings that are extra-long. Think sweeping past your shoulders in elegant lines.
7. White Pearls
Big, white, round and organic Tahitian pearls will be a major trend this spring. You’ll see both shapes mixed in together for a modern take on a pearl necklace to pair with your LBD.
8. Disco Inferno
Sparkle like the glitterati! Diamond-encrusted spheres dangling from ears and glittering gemstones in long horizontal lines were lighting up the runways at all the fashion shows this spring.
9. 80s Sculptures
Perhaps the biggest look of all, solid, fine metal earrings in flowing, organic, yet extra-large proportions nearly stole the show during Fashion Week.
10. Re-Styled Baroque
You can thank the Royals and a super-popular HBO series for the trend toward the ornate, Victorian-era trend you’ll see this year.
The biggest takeaway from the runways this spring? Be ready for jewelry to be firmly planted front and center with everything you wear. There’s no time like the present to take a risk and have some fun with your jewelry style!
