Current Fashion Trends in Jewelry and Accessories25/09/2021
Colour trends in costume jewelry:
The fall fashion trends are ushering in another excellent season for costume jewelry and accessories. Rich colours and bold looks dominate the trend. Teal, amber, and amethyst are the important colours with olivine and green used as neutrals. Topaz and peacock are also important and all indications are that rich colour will continue into the spring season. Metals are seeing a return to gold, but silver is still stronger.
Bold designs dominate fashion jewelry:
Fashion jewelry thrives when bold designs are in vogue and that is very much the case this season. The high fashion look is popular in necklaces, earrings, and bracelets with natural components contributing to the designs. Wood is continuing its second season of popularity with shell important even in the fall line. But the rising star in natural materials is a gemstone, which provides the beauty of natural semiprecious stones to costume jewelry designs. This will definitely continue and accelerate in the spring line. Also popular in neckwear are 48 inches and 60-inch ropes that are worn extended or doubled. Jet is strong in holiday jewelry and estate looks (antique designs) are becoming fashionable in bridal jewelry.
Traditional costume jewelry and accessories:
While costume jewelry in bold designs and rich colours forge the way for leading fashion, there is a larger market that shouldn’t be ignored in more traditional and classic looks. Theme jewelry in pendants, earrings, and charm bracelets has an appeal that goes beyond fashion alone because it identifies with what the wearer cares about. In addition, traditional rhinestone, bridal jewelry, evening bags, and formal gloves have a classic look with timeless appeal. There is a major market for these items that will always be present even as fashion changes.
Sequins and buttons are very big in all accessories, especially in handbags and evening bags. Beyond these, the looks of the larger bags introduced by leading designers are the trendy styles of the season. These are the bags the stars are carrying, which goes a long way towards popularizing the styles. In evening bags, large sequins and buttons are very much in vogue, but traditional looks seem to be carrying the day.
Sunglasses are definitely big and bold with aviators the runaway favorite. Retro looks are also excellent and coloured frames with matching lenses are very popular.
