In this article, we uncover the must-have accessories that pull any summer outfit together. Whether it’s long bohemian layers or a polished, more conservative aesthetic, accessories are the make-or-break decision of any outfit. So come with me on a journey through the biggest spring/summer 2016 accessory trends of today’s
Every year no matter how avant-garde the trend the seasonal collections are, they never forget to include the pearls. Since the Europe’s Renaissance elite sported them in elaborate costumes and wigs, pearls have had a dazzling role to play in high fashion. Classic movie actresses like Audrey Hepburn and TV personalities like Lucille Ball immortalized the beauty of the pearl necklaces they were never without and established their place in our popular culture as simple, elegant style. Today their popularity continues unabated, and pearls are owned by women of all ages and all walks of life. When it comes to accessorizing, always turn to pearls for their beauty and versatility. The same long rope of pearls that suits a long, flowing dress can be doubled and worn in the latest fashion to accent a sharp ensemble. The latest trends all feature wrist accessories. Try using multiple bracelets together or wrapping a longer necklace around the wrist for a hip yet sophisticated affect.
Intricate chandelier earrings are headlining one of the biggest spring/summer 2016 jewelry trends thanks to their multifunctional ability to be worn on special occasions for a more luxurious and chic look as well as in everyday life to bring some bohemian, free-spirited touches to your outfit. We see them inundating the fashion shows as either metallic chains or encrusted with stones and beads, and seen in every style whether shoulder-grazing chains, or beaded with some ornamental structure.We are gradually moving from neck and ears to the hands just to embrace the next big jewelry trend. Tiny tender rings are all too common these days, but the re-emergence of massive statement rings more frequently embellished with stones are the “it” thing now. The look is more effective and show-stopping when piled together on one hand: A single statement ring all encrusted with stones can be worn on the index finger, while another one can be worn on the middle finger. This tendency to wear a series of statement rings is a new trend, but in this case bringing into play the usage of multiple statement rings on both hands is what makes this trend unique and very personal. Actually it is not this plethora of rings that knocks our socks off but the way they all announce your own individual style.
