Summer Style

Summer Style

Now that summer is here, it’s time to pull the colour out of our wardrobes and lose the coats. Summer is a great time of year to experiment with fashion and to get creative. This doesn’t just mean with clothes, but also with jewellery. The unnoticed jewellery we may have worn under our layers of clothes in the cooler seasons, can now reappear and be used to properly accessorize an outfit.

The Spring/Summer ’17 catwalk saw a plethora of jewellery styles and colours, including yellows, oranges, nudes, pinks and blues.  Although some of the jewellery was rather over the top and theatrical, it was a great source of inspiration for fun summer looks. Here we look at a few of these summer jewellery styles spotted on the catwalk:

Stones

Gemstones and mineral-like-stones were seen in many collections by some of the top designers, including Stella McCartney - and it is easy to see why. Not only do they add a colourful, bohemian feel, they also add edge and a unique touch to an outfit. Gemstones come in all shapes, sizes, and colours so there is always a piece to suit every individual.


Oversized earrings

Another trend spotted on the catwalk this season were elaborate, oversized earrings. These are extremely feminine and great statement pieces for dressing up outfits. If you want something to complement your style and give you that extra glow in the sunshine, gold and rose gold are always good choices.


Statement jewellery

The jewellery on the catwalk was far from subtle. Crosses, chains and cuffs were all frequently shown, adding an attractive sharpness to the usually soft summer styles. If you are looking for something softer yet still on trend, these looks can be toned down or simplified. For example, instead of wearing a large cuff, try layering slim bangles. These look great with a maxi dress, for an elegant Grecian look.



We here at The Jewellery Superstore are always keeping our eyes on the latest trends and unique designs, and with our wide range of accessories available, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect pieces to suit your summer style.
