The latest jewelry designs gracing runways are all about the details and it’s about time.
High impact ornamentation completely transforms a look.
These top new earring fashion trends bring a little attitude and a lot of flair to your styling options.
10. Modern glamour
In fashion, glamorous designs often nod to the past. This season, glamorous fine jewelry has a distinctly modern feel while still featuring the gorgeous real or simulated gemstones that make this style so timeless. From intricate designs glittering with diamonds on white gold to dangling pearls, there really is no wrong choice.
9. Bohemian motifs
Fashion designs love dipping back into the 1960s and 1970s for inspiration. To accentuate these styles, jewelry designers are incorporating fringe, beads, owls and the always cool zigzag. Of these new earring fashion trends, this one lends itself most to casual wear. Earthy gals who prefer braided hemp to gold will find many choices to pair with long skirts, bangles or platform shoes.
8. Backings with a twist
No longer are backings purely functional. Decorative flourishes inspire gals to sweep the hair up to show off this surprising touch. From floral shapes and spikes to geometric designs and words like “Love”, this is a whole new canvas for designers to play and fashion lovers to enjoy the fun.
7. Ear cuffs
Ear cuffs strike that perfect balance between showstopper and femininity. Popular in the 90s, they’re back with a refined edge. From a practical perspective, they’re much lighter weight than other styles and accentuate any outfit. Choose designs that express your personality, like a Celtic knots or butterflies.
6. Call of the whimsical
When pre-season fashion runways are filled with rainbows and rain drops, you know new earring fashions will nod to the trend. You’ll see everything from bold styles in a single burst of color, rainbows and vibrant mosaics in wild color combinations in studs, hoops and mega chandeliers.
5. Gold rush
Gold dangles and studs frame the face with sunny warmth, so it’s no surprise this precious metal is popular again. It complements the colorful 70’s fashions gracing runways and yellow gold is always a smart choice for special occasions.
Only the lonely know how to stand out by throwing things off balance. The single earring look challenges the eyes with unexpected yet striking irregularity. Trendy jewelry in bold colors or an off-kilter shape makes such a strong impression you only need to wear one.
3. For the love of vintage
Good news, ladies looking for something new to dress up their something old. The influence of Art Deco on new earring fashion trends is stronger than ever, thanks in part to the television show Downton Abbey. Lady Mary of Downton shows loyal viewers that this style encompasses much more than geometric shapes, and includes references to Cubism and other evocative artistic movements of the time.
2. Parade of pinks, purples and reds
The Pantone color of the year is Marsala. This pretty terracotta shade may not be familiar, but it means you’ll be seeing a lot of it and the surrounding shades from the color wheel. Soft lavenders, purples and pinks are the perfect colors to wear with Marsala tops and dresses.
1. Front-back beauty
Decorative backings are taken a step further with front-back pearls. Emma Watson and other fashion-forward celebrities wear this lovely duo on red carpets and out on the town. These stylish earrings are an understated way to add something extra to your favorite little black dress.
