As dedicated followers of fashion, we all want to stay ahead of the trends. Whether that means keeping a particularly close eye on the catwalk or hitting the high streets at the start of a new season, spotting defining trends can be difficult without the right know-how.
Accessories can make or even break any outfit, as well as transforming an ensemble into suitable day, night or occasion wear, so what does 2015 hold for accessory-loving fashionistas everywhere? As a leading supplier of jewellery, we certainly know a thing or two about what’s hot and what’s not. Here we reveal our trend forecast for the year ahead.
Flashback with the retro look
Leading trends on the catwalks tend to fall into a cycle, with the hottest looks that our mothers or even grandmothers championed coming full circle with a nifty twist that makes them oh-so-now.
On many Spring Summer 2015 designer catwalks we saw the crème de la crème showcase retro stylings all complemented by exaggerated ear wear. Go big and bold with your earrings, and add a burst of colour by exploring gemstone jewellery in statement designs.
Why have one, when you could have two
Rings are back in force in the coming year, with every model on the Valentino catwalk rocking the ring stack – after all why have one ring, when you could have two, three or even four. Again go bold with your choice of colour and stones. Coral is officially the hottest colour for jewellery this season, so add a feminine twist to structured outfits or unleash your playful side in all its glory.
Keep arm candy structured and simple
Bracelets can provide all the arm candy you need for that night out or office look, and whilst many jewellery trends for 2015 urge you to go big and bold, staying simple and sophisticated is the key here. Solid silver pieces are a must for the coming season and the next, whilst those looking to add a hint of colour should incorporate some sparkle with a sturdy, statement gemstone.
Pearly white necklines
Pearls and other white gemstones are back, and here to stay for a few seasons. As well as adding a playful twist on the classic, pearl decorated necklaces can add a touch of elegance to any ensemble. When it comes to pearls though, bigger is always better. Cuffs and chokers have also made a comeback, and should be a fashion favourite for anyone opting for an ultra-modern look.
