Any girl worth her weight in clothes understands the necessity of a well-rounded and comprehensive accessory collection. For the Fall/Winter 2018-2019 accessory trends, bold is better with oversized jewellery, dangling earrings, and XXL strappy leather belts. Don’t go quietly into the night – make a statement and move around in confidence.
Chunky chain links
Nestled within the mega-sized fall 2018, jewellery trend is moving towards chunky-linked chain necklaces. Bulky silver and gold links are statement-making in their own right and lend any style an appealing dose of trendy effortlessness and attitude. Just one bold necklace or luxe pair of earrings can transform a look.
Gold hardware and danglers
Gold swept the runways this season and designers just couldn’t get enough. We saw the metal feature across the spectrum from minimalist dainty chains to bulky hardware links.
Mega size jewellery
A mega-trend that served as an overarching theme for the season can be simply summarised as bigger and better. Earrings were veritable floor sweepers, and necklaces were injected with a dose of style steroids. We suggest this as your next big jewellery investment.
Cuff bracelets are a favourite among fashionistas for many reasons, one of them being their likeness towards sculptural work of art. They’ve now become wearable art figures heavily as a fixture in the fashion world. So why not jump on the bandwagon now? Even a simple and luxurious molten gold or silver cuff has an endlessly artistic feel, forceful in their minimalism. Cuffs are an easy way of incorporating jewel tones and exotic motifs into otherwise basic looks.
The single earring
There is something intoxicatingly decisive about this look. A singular earring showcases an inner composure and innate confidence. The look is a nod to the sartorial insider circle and demonstrates an intuitive and studied knowledge of fashion and aesthetics. We love how the long and dangling varieties sweep the collarbone and create a romantic asymmetry.
One’s fun, many’s a party
Now that we have established the general mega-sized mood of the season, we should probably also report that quantity plays an important role this season. Combining different metals, sizes and lengths create an eccentric and playful aesthetic. Though you may be trying hard to achieve the look, the result is generally effortlessly irreverent. Stocking up on multiples doesn’t necessarily equate to looking over the top.
One of the most unexpected but strategically fashionable jewellery trends this year is the mismatched earring look. It bestows the wearer with a bold and brazen confidence and is an extremely forward-thinking way of accessorising. One ear would be decked out in a simple stud, while the other would play host to a dangling and sparkly statement maker. This contrast is effective in creating a spirited and self-assured silhouette.
