Top Summer Jewelry Trends
Although we all have our staple pieces of jewelry that we love to wear all year long, summer is an amazing time to have fun with trendy seasonal pieces! Since you’ll be showing more skin to stay cool during hot days, you have the perfect opportunity to show off some awesome jewelry. We want you to have your most stylish summer ever, so we have compiled a list of our favorite chic and cute jewelry trends that you absolutely must try out this summer!
1Trend # 1: Ear Cuffs
When it comes to choosing your summer ear cuffs, the more elaborate the better! This summer’s hottest ear cuffs tend to have a ton of rings, and usually include dramatic, ornate details that would been considered tacky or gaudy in the past. Summer is the perfect time to try this trend out since hot days will make you want to wear your hair up!
2Trend # 2: Choker Necklaces
A lot of famous faces have recently been rocking those plastic choker necklaces that were popular in the 90’s. If you don’t love the retro woven plastic look, but love the neck-hugging trend, you are in luck because there are many choker styles out there! Chokers, as the name would suggest, sit closely around your neck and make a dramatic statement even though the necklace itself is often understated. If you want to make the most of this trend, try pairing your choker necklace with a strapless dress or a cute tank tops and jeans!
3Trend # 3: Mid-Finger Rings
Rings are always a fun way to spice up an outfit, but this summer, there’s a twist on traditional rings: rings that sit midway down your finger! Although some mid-rings are more ornate than others, we think the cutest way to wear this trend is to choose a simple gold band. Wearing a classic gold-band around the middle or upper joint of your finger is the perfect way to effortlessly blend classic elegance with some spunk. On that topic, if you are planning to get engaged anytime soon and are bored with the typical engagement rings out there, or even want to sell you’re old engagement ring, you should definitely consider a gorgeous gold mid-finger ring! And, if you want something with a little bit more personality than a simple gold band, you can always find a mid-finger ring that has a cute stone or bauble in middle!
4Trend # 4: Leather and Metal Bracelets
For the same reason that a silk top and jeans looks amazing, the combination of leather and metal is super hot when incorporated into a bracelet because the materials create a stylish contrast. Though thick leather bracelets are great for winter, they are definitely too warm for summer! If you want to stay cool this summer (both in temperature and style!), look out for thin, delicate strands of leather with metal accents.
5Trend # 5: Forearm Bracelet
Bracelets are not just for your wrists! Though the last couple years have seen rising popularity of arm jewelry, this summer has introduced a happy medium: the forearm! We love the look of a thin gold forearm cuff that loops around a couple times, and we are also going crazy over thick metal cuffs!
Remember, these are just 5 of our favorite cute and chic summer jewelry trends that we have been loving! Summer is the perfect time to go wild with your jewelry, so don’t be afraid to take a risk—who knows, maybe you’ll start a new trend all by yourself!
