We are at the beginning of a new year and time for a new you, model or otherwise. This does not mean to clean out your jewelry box, thus breaking the bank and ditching all of your priceless accessories from 2016 either. There are a couple of easy-to-accessory items that will enhance the everyday fashionista and model alike. We are not just talking about just earrings here, but chokers, pendants, and much more. The following is an important insight on how to make a strong jewelry statement to stand out strong in 2017.
Chokers sporting bling, or rigid vs. casual are all the rage for winter 2017. While this trend made its first appearance on the spring runways, the looks have transcended into this winter. The black choker was fashion forward in the early 90’s and chokers for this winter vary across the board. There truly is something for everyone her with this bold look. For fashion conscious girls to models strutting the runway, the options available out there and not limited to Balmain’s metallic glass look, Van Noten’s delicate feather inspiration, Lanvin’s luscious gemstones and Luisa Beccaria’s vivacious velvet stunners, to name just a few.
Pendants are priceless this winter and another important transcending fashion trend for this year. The theme this winter is all about “eye-catching” and this does not mean toss out your dainty pieces either. Popular must-have items include the medallion garden-style pendants showcased at John Galliano and the fang look spotted at Trussardi. Valentino went larger in life with large-scale twisted metal pendants, making the biggest statement while complimenting the simplest outfit. Anna Sui took a unique design angle with the popular kaleidoscope look. Finally yet importantly, there were three scarlet gems pendants seen at Ralph Lauren. Pendant chokers even made an appearance at opening ceremony last year!
The pop punk jewelry accessory movement, which made an appearance on the runways last year, also is in full force this year and we are not talking about ear cuffs, but multiple piercings and other punk solutions. Yes, the 90’s accessory trend has completely made another appearance in a new, bold way. Alexander McQueen took a creative approach with models displaying chain ear cuffs with dangling butterflies, stars and other lovely items, sure to compliment a variety of wardrobes. If you are interested in a mind-blowing ear cuff look, then the wrap-ear cuff look by Demna Gvasalia is for you. Dior truly went Goth with their multi-piercings and Koché made a truly bold statement with a combination look where nose rings meet ear piercings and the bling is rolled all into one.
