If you are a true fashionista, you already know that everything you put on needs to mesh and be current. This includes your jewelry. With that said, you really do not want to be caught dead walking around with last year’s jewelry-or anything else for that matter.
If you are big in accessorising, here are the top six Jewelry looks you should be rocking in 2022.
1. The Choker
If you thought you had seen the last of the choker, think again. This 1990’s look is not only back, but it’s back with a big bang. The sexiness of this choker is definitely in part because it looks fetish-inspired. Another is versatility as it presents numerous styling options.
Two outstanding ones are a thin minimalist choker. (Yes, minimalism is in as well.) The other is to go all out with a thick fabric choker with all sorts of dangling pendants and other embellishments.
If you love metal, you can consider chunky metallic chokers. However, be careful not to look too heavy by pairing it with simple outfits. On the other hand, sleek, thin, simple pieces can be paired with other accessories and bolder outfits without giving an overdone look.
Several jewelers, including Bucheron, De Beers and Mikimoto, had gorgeous chokers in their show earlier this year. These trends are likely to be seen on more red carpets this year. This is a safe bet.
The spring/summer catwalk 2022 saw powerhouses like Prada, Tom Ford and Dior feature pearls. Vivienne Westwood and Chanel also jumped on to the trend to pay homage to some of their fashion house traditions. Coco Chanel wore them and even incorporated faux pearls into her clothing line. On the other hand, Vivienne Westwood juxtaposed the oceanic gems into her punk themes styles.
Long story short: pearls are in.
Pearls can elevate anything from a denim jacket for a casual evening out to a dress you wear to a wedding. You just need to play around with different looks to know how to switch things up.
A rule of thumb, according to experts, is one related to size. Smaller pearls are ideal for everyday wear and streetwear. Conversely, the more formal an event is, the larger the pearls should be.
Other than that, feel free to buy pearl-embedded clothing, handbags with pearly straps and so on.
Oh, and men are not left out. Pharrell Williams and Harry Styles have donned their pearls. So can you!
3. Drop Earrings
After two years of being indoors wearing sweats, no one can be faulted for wanting a taste of glitz and glamor.
Flashy dangles are not only glamorous; they elongate your neck and add a whole lot of sophistication to an ensemble. But, of course, you can also go modern or classic, depending on the look you want to achieve.
You can get a look to match your personality and the occasion from drop hoops, pearls, beady earrings, and diamonds. Chunkier earrings go very well with casual wear.
On the other hand, go for sleek, simpler, sophisticated drop earrings to glam up a more formal look.
4. Men’s Bracelets
Historically, men wore metal and leather bands on their wrists for protection and other religious reasons. Today, these are purely for fashion. Fortunately, designers have recognised the growing need for male jewelry and have matched the need.
Men love black. Name it. From cars to suits to watches, black is associated with style, mystery and an unparalleled rugged charm. This leads us to black gold bracelets.
This gold allows the wearer to combine the delicate, durable qualities of gold with a rugged masculine sophistication. For men that want some embellishments, black gold offers a dark, opaque backdrop to intensify the brilliance of any chosen gem.
Pair workwear with simple bracelets with clean lines, enhancing the look without taking over. You will also likely have a wristwatch on, so the two need to complement each other and the entire look.
Feel free to be bolder with casual looks.
For the hopeless romantics, eternity bracelets are allowable this season. In addition, some jewelers allow customisation so you can control how much bling you are willing to take on.
5. Colorful Splash
Wearing some color became a trend in 2021, and the trend has not relented. If anything, it has spilled over from attire to jewelry. Needless to say, this look is more appropriate for evenings out, vacation wear and other informal settings.
We have seen top trendsetters with their bright candy-coloured jewelry. This is the trend you need to get in on this year.
Closely related to this is beaded jewelry. This 90’s trend has made a comeback, albeit with an ageless, more sophisticated look. You are also spoilt for choice on color, size and shape.
These are also not limited to bracelets, as was the case in the 90s. Instead, you can get your beaded earrings, neckpieces, chunky rings, waist chains and so on. These also play around with scale, vibrancy in colors, abstractness and even words to inject a more fun look.
6. It’s All In the Metal
There are two types of people; gold lovers and silver lovers/ if you are the latter, you are in luck.
Yellow gold seems to have taken a back seat in favor of silver, and why not? Its timeless, understated, edgy, punky feel is something we could all do with. You also get many more options when pairing with whatever else you have in your closet.
For people who love gemstones, you can quickly get the flashiest stones embedded into your silver jewelry without looking too garish. Do you like layering several jewelry types? Again, not a problem with the classy yet understated silver.
