When it comes to “new year, new me,” you may be thinking about diet, exercise, reading, and goals. But our minds seem to wander to something we know you’re really thinking about: fashion. We all know no outfit is complete without some accessories, especially jewelry. It’s time to get ahead of the game, so we’ve compiled the five best 2018 jewelry trends that are coming your way. Glitz and glam should always be an essential part of those new year resolutions.
To The Beach
We’re talking bold color, vibrant beading, plenty of tassels, and all the feelings of being in a tropical paradise. One of our new favorite trends of the year gives of plenty of reasons to add some spice to basics and let jewelry be the star of the show. We found some pieces from Free People that will have you sipping a drink out of a coconut in no time.
Shape of You
Plain old circular hoops are a thing of the past. This year, the fashion industry is introducing different shapes, sizes, and patterns to the world of hoops. Pair with simpler accessories to make a bold statement. A great start to out of the ordinary earrings are these bow-laced hoops from Jcrew.
Go Big or Go Home
Ear cuffs made their appearance in 2017, but in true new year fashion, 2018 is making them bigger and badder. They’re blinged out and taking up most of your ear, letting everyone know they are a definite statement piece. We love this asymmetrical ear cuff from Happiness Boutique.
All About Ankles
Another 90’s trend is hitting the year hard, and we’re definitely not mad about it. These anklets are far from the string braided ones we made at summer camp. These fabulous ankle additions will be seen everywhere this Spring, like this simple one from Urban Outfitters.
Give Us a Brooch
Head straight to your grandmother’s closet because brooches are back. Ok, maybe these ones are a little more flashy than some of the old fashioned ones. Brooches are the perfect addition to basic blouses, jackets, and even scarves. A Anthropologie already looks like our go-to place for this new trend. certain princess may have tainted brooches for us already, but that’s no reason to shy away.
When it comes to accessories, we know it takes more to look good than just jewelry. Check out how to get some killer looks for less with inspiration from our favorite, Kim K.
