2021 will be the year of over-accessorizing. After spending most of 2020 in and lounging in sweats and slippers, many of us are eager to dress up for the nines in the new year, even though we’re still distancing ourselves socially and wearing our masks. We want to look our best when we go out in public!
You remember all those earrings and necklaces that you impulse-purchased when you were at home waiting for the world to restart? You’re fortunate, because so many of the designs of jewellery in 2020 are heading into the new year. We haven’t had a chance to wear them, and there’s no way we’re going to let them go to waste!
Smooth, pristine surfaces are out and smashed, folded gold, silver, and bronzes are the change for 2021 as far as earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are concerned.
Do you miss matching a long, dangling necklace with each top like you did in the early aughts? You would want to reconsider your option if you replied no to that. Chloé, Dior, and Tory Burch all moved on to long, waist-length necklaces instead of the ’90s-inspired chokers that dominated virtually every runway leading up to this year.
If both your grandma and Harry Styles are capable of rocking pearls, it probably means that you will, too. Over the years, it’s no wonder the jewel has retained its success. The timeless look is beautifully classy and flexible, as it is in a pair of elegant earrings. If your vibe is not dainty, you can easily take a more modern approach by simply piling in a necklace, earrings, rings, and bracelets galore on the pearls.
Chunky chains have increased steadily in popularity over the last few years. Alongside the recent accessory spot in e-girl aesthetics, Hérmes’s, Victoria Beckham’s, and Givenchy’s runways, among others, also made their way. A chunky chain necklace is a simple piece that adds a lot of personality to a look, not to mention that it’s perfect for layering with other necklaces.
This is a design that was launched on the New York Fashion Week runway in 2019. Since then, asymmetric earrings have been very trendy, and we expect them to be in vogue in 2021 as well.
Another development that could be seen at weddings could be that of floral jewellery. Though floral motif jewellery is not new, but thanks to beautiful modern design and detailing, it’s all set to become the biggest bride trend to look out for.
Vibrant and Colorful
The jewellery in 2021 will be anything but dull and subtle. So we would see a ‘color flurry’ reflected by uncommon combinations and a vivid juxtaposition of gemstones coming together, offering artists a very rich canvas to paint. So be open to accept incredibly bold and dramatic jewellery pieces with highly unconventional silhouettes, much like wearable art.
