Now that summer is on its way, this is a great excuse to splurge a little and invest in some seasonal accessories. From chokers to giant earrings, here are a few accessories that are right on trend for this summer.
Oversized earrings are going to be all the rage this summer, and the Spring Summer 2017 runways were definitely proof of this. The earrings seen were heavy and large, sometimes featuring jewels and sometimes featuring bold, graphic details. For those who prefer sparkling gems, check out the earrings from Gucci and Alexander McQueen, while the cugg earrings from Delpozo are bright and extremely spring-worthy. Of course, feminine earrings never go amiss, and some great versions of this can be found at Dsquared2, where the earrings feature everything from ribbon bows to hearts and lips.
While those who have quite a bohemian personal style are likely to already own a couple of ankle bracelets, this is an accessory that will become much more mainstream this summer. These are the perfect way to decorate your feet after a long winter of keeping them wrapped up, and work well whether you are barefoot on a beach or wearing sandals in a city. Lanvin took this trend even further by promoting tasselled ankle bracelets on both feet, while Attico has some lush, velvety anklets that feature stylish buckles. For a more elegant touch, take a look at the collection from Fenty x Puma, where you will find delicate pearl strands.
Many summer outfits tend to be quite simple, and a statement belt is a great way to jazz this up. For those who want to add an edgy attitude to their outfit, the leather punk belts from Alexander McQueen would be a great addition to your wardrobe, while Custo Barcelona, Bibhu Mohapatra and Carven have some more feminine, delicate, bejewelled options available. To take their statement belts even further, many designers even styled them by tying them into a knot, which really transforms the whole outfit.
You likely already own a number of rings, and wearing these with multiple other rings is a great way to do things a little differently. Try this in a few different ways, from subtly, with just a couple of rings on each hand, to extravagantly, with bejewelled rings on all five fingers, which is something that has been seen recently at Gucci.
Chokers were huge in the 90’s, and have been making quite the comeback in recent seasons. If you have not yet purchased a choker, thinking that they are likely to go back out of style soon, think again, as these seductive accessories are set to stick around this year. To really emulate spring, opt for bright, seasonal colors, or for the delicate, fragile chokers from Christian Dior, as well as Coach 1941.
Even if you do not plan on updating your wardrobe much this year in terms of clothing, new accessories will still be able to transform your outfits. From a statement belt to a seductive choker, these are some items that are definitely worth adding to your closet this year.
