Necklace trends change more than you may think. If you’re looking to change up your style this year, your necklaces are the perfect place to start. Necklace trends in 2017 are set to be as varied as they are striking, so pick your favorite, or mix and match! Here’s some of the most exciting trends that are set to make a splash.
Chokers Are Still Making Waves
Yes, chokers and ’90’s chic were big in 2016, but they’re not going anywhere any time soon. In fact, they’re set to get even bigger and better. New, chunkier chokers are the next big thing in fashion. They take some finesse, as get a choker that’s too big and it can look like you’re wearing a neck brace. However, there’s lots of cool styles to choose from, so don’t be afraid to try it out.
Hardware Style Necklaces
Are you seeing a lot of chunky, punky looking necklaces lately? That’s not a coincidence. Hardware style chic is becoming all the rage. Chunky chain link and mixed metals gives a welcome antidote to overly girly styles that are already out there. If you want your necklace to stand out rather than shrink away, then this style is for you.
A New Take on Personalization
Necklaces have come a long way from SJP’s name plate tag from Sex and the City. You can mix things up by wearing a monogrammed name tag, or a name choker. There’s lots of new takes on the trend appearing, so don’t be afraid to rep your name around your neck.
Pendants Are Bigger and Better
Are you tired of minimalist fashion? Then you’re in luck. Oversized pendants on long chains are making waves in fashion right now. They can be as crazy or as classy as you like. Current necklaces showing up include large cat pendants, geometric shapes, and anything else you can think of. They’re perfect if you want your necklace to be the focal point of your outfit, this is the style you need to try.
Remember in the early 2000’s when all your jewelry was a mish mash of bright colors? That style is coming back in a big, bad way. Necklaces with multi colored gems or accents are now big, and they’re guaranteed to being a smile to your face. You’ll never have to worry about matching your necklace to your outfit again, at any rate.
Get Natural with Minerals
Get in touch with your inner Earth Mother with minerals this year. Stones and mineral slices were big on catwalks towards the end of last year, and you’re bound to see more them showing up in stores. They’re a cool way to add natural elements to your every day look.
Now you know what’s going to be big this year, it’s time to get shopping. Find a style that suits you and your own unique look. You’ll change up your style for the new year, all while staying true to your own tastes.
