JEWELLERY TRENDS

JEWELLERY TRENDS

Is it delicate rings, layered bracelets or chunky necklaces trending this season in the jewellery department? Let’s find out, shall we?

Jewellery trends are generally put together after carefully tracking the red carpet, runways around the globe as well as real life fashionistas. Here is our take on what’s hot and what’s not on this front.

 

Bib Necklaces

It started with chunky, stringy, long neck pieces, and has now been reinvented in the form of bib necklaces. These are designed with a flat feel to it; it still is as jazzy and eye catching as the chunky neck pieces but just slightly more refined.

These necklaces are much easier to wear and style as well – they sit very well around your neck regardless of whether you’re wearing a dress, formal shirt or a casual tee. The designs available vary from one end to the other; some are made of cloth, some of beads, some are stylishly outrageous while some are simple and modest.

Reptile Bracelets

Sure, sounds weird, but it seems to be quite popular. Instead of the usual flowery, girly designs, what better way to bring out your wild side with reptiles wrapping themselves around your wrist. Once you see the designs and try ‘em on, I think you’ll be much more convinced.

 Ring-Bracelet

These used to be the in thing a long time ago, and it’s exciting to see it come back. The designs are all revolving around delicate wear. Pick simple, thin chained ring-bracelets to wear with your outfit, or if you are more of a chunky person – there are options with beads and stones also!

Ear Cuffs

These are not for the weak, ear cuffs have always been a symbol of the bold and adventurous. This piece of jewellery always exudes confidence and a sense of raw passion. But this time, they’ve come back altered to fit everyone’s personality – there are some beautiful delicate ones as well as the loud, daring designs.

WINTER MUST HAVES

WINTER MUST HAVES

Come Winter and all your favourite clothes get hidden under layers of jackets or sweaters. What could you do differently this winter? We’ve got you a quick checklist of must-haves and also some inspiration from all around the globe on how to style your existing winter wear and still look like your fashionable self.

Scarves

We’ve all got our scarves, during the summer we use it to cover our faces from tanning, in the monsoon it’s our hair it saves and during the winter it’s wrapped around our neck for warmth.

Additionally, oversized woollen scarves are really in this season. Instead of patterned scarves, women are opting for plain colours like cream, grey, beige and pale pink and blue. You can up your style points just by trying out new ways of wearing a scarf too – tie it into a nice big bow or layer it in circles around your neck without any lose ends hanging out. We urge you to get on with this trend – they look cozy, comfy and stylish.

Thermal Leggings

Take your thermal leggings out of the dusty old box, and keep them prepared because they are going to be ridiculously important this winter. If you thought you couldn’t wear your dresses, skirts and shorts anymore – guess again – pair them with your thermal leggings and jacket to look like hot amidst chilly weather.

Before you pick up any other colour, make sure you have black leggings first.

 HeadWear

You always need something to cover your ears with in the winter! Generally you’d wear winter knitted caps, but this time we want you to try out winter head bands! They are broad woollen head bands that look almost like hair accessories but they also do their job! Get basic colours like grey or cream to match them with anything you wear, or you could buy the same colour as your scarf.

You could tie your hair up in a messy bun or leave your hair open; either way we guarantee this to be an uber cool winter look.

Take out your jackets and sweaters. Check up what still fits you and keep ‘em ready, or get yourself new ones. Bright reds are really in, along with the classic blacks for well fitted jackets. Sweaters this season are going to be of a loose fit, colour no bar! Pair them with your scarf, leggings and you’ve got yourself a cute winter look, right there!
