N.Y. Fashion Week Jewelry: Still ‘70s After All These Years

Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week winds up Thursday, after a week-long whirlwind of runway shows and parties to celebrate the Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collections. One trend that appeared in several key fashion shows is a throwback to all things from the 1970s.

While some designers embraced the ‘70s look head to toe, others simply tipped their floppy hats to the Boho era. New York Fashion Week jewelry highlights include: long geometric pendants with short skirts or tunics; tassel necklaces that echo the designers’ fringe-with-everything obsession; and hippie-chic feather chokers in silver and matte black.

Rebecca Minkoff: Fringed boots, ponchos and tunics, wide-brimmed felt hats, mini dresses, and guitar-strap cross-body bags. Almost every look on the catwalk was accompanied by one or two feather-style necklaces, a favorite motif of New York designer Minkoff.

Mara Hoffman: Jumpsuits, ribbed turtlenecks, maxi dresses, and suede boots —  they all work better with a long tassel necklace. Available at many price points, the tassel can double as a belt. Look for fringed earrings and bracelets too — the more fringe the better.

Zimmermann: A Bohemian rhapsody of crocheted sleeves, macramé trim, geo-prints, and street-smart hats. One particular cutout circle pendant dominated Zimmermann’s runway, the designer’s signature piece. Look for it to be widely copied by summer.
