This is the week when journalists typically review the best of the year that just ended and predict what will be hot for the year ahead. So we’ve rounded up several 2015 jewelry trends and must-haves, as seen through the eyes of top fashion magazine editors.
If you have holiday money or gift cards burning a hole in your designer bag, consider investing in these jewelry styles — you won’t go wrong. Not only were they seen all over the runways for Spring/Summer 2015, they also showed up in collections for Pre-Fall 2015-16.
Happy New Year and Happy Jewelry Shopping!
Crushing on Blush. Editors at Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Accessories magazines agree that “blush” is the new neutral. Sandy and beige-pink tones are flattering to most skin types, and they play well with black, navy, brown, and prints. We love Wimberly’s Rose Quartz Earrings, $98 at Wimberlyinc.com
Shorter Jackets=Longer Necklaces. The January edition of Vogue features It-Girl Kendall Jenner in chic cropped jackets and ankle-bearing trousers. This new silhouette calls for long pendant-style necklaces, like Céline’s Brass Bell Pendant for $425, and Edun’s Hand-crafted Silver and African Stone Pendant, $1,095. Available at Celine.com and Edun.com
Rough Stuff. Jewelry designers and editors are in love with raw stones…look for them in necklaces, bracelets, rings, and earrings in the year ahead. Rough edges and “slices” of minerals provide an eclectic counterpoint to formal fashions. Featured: Druzy Gemstone Silver Necklace from Chris Bales Jewelry, $1,191 at elligatorssilverjewelry.com
It’s Hip to Be Square. The trend toward geometrics will continue throughout 2015, in fabric prints and in fine jewelry. Designer Mimi So’s Piece Collection offers a unique take on concentric squares with rounded edges, in 18K gold and diamonds. Prices on request at Dorfman Jewelers, Boston.
