Trend Watch: Big Jewelry

By: Erica Delp

June ushers in the official start of summer. June 21st, to be precise! Is your wardrobe ready for your summer calendar, which is no doubt already filled with plans of weddings, barbeques, beach trips and weekends away?

One of the trends that we at Layne Designs are loving is the “big jewelry” look. This season, think bigger, bolder and more of it. Photos from runway shows and catalogs alike are pairing fabulous bright colors and tribal prints with complementary statement jewelry. You’ll see flashy pendants, large cocktail rings and thick bangles just about everywhere. Wearing multiple items of jewelry at once is also another feature of the big jewelry trend. So, don’t limit your outfit to one necklace or bracelet. Experiment with coordinating two to five of each item to find a cohesive yet daring look that will bring a new and interesting facet to your style. This a great way to add new additions to you accessory collection while still enjoying your old favorites.

In accordance with the laid back spirit of summer, you also can leave the pressure to match accessories to clothing behind with the winter months. The word to capture the mood of the season is “effortless”. Mixing metals and contrasting colors are perfectly in vogue this season. So when it comes to your jewelry box, simply go where your heart guides you and enjoy wearing any and all of the things you love. What a breath of fresh air!

Layne Designs has many pieces currently available to help you bring your summer look to life. One particular item to turn your attention to is the Brandy Bracelet, which features a focal stone that can be worn as a pendant as well! After all, ladies need to keep their options open in the summer time. Consider pairing the brandy bracelet with a few of Layne’s Starry Night Bangles for a completed look.
