Hoops aren't a new trend, but for spring they have been supersized. The new XXL proportions were paired with everything from power suiting to LBDs and are intended to go with just about anything.

Statement-jewelry lovers, here's another one for you. Chain-link necklaces were also spotted on the runways in pumped-up sizes, whether paired with open-front silhouettes or layered over crew-necks.

We've been predicting the rise of silver jewelry, and the runways are providing even more evidence that the metal will be gaining traction in the coming months.

Instead of matching earrings, designers sent models down the runways with just one. At Prabal Gurung and JW Anderson, we saw crystal styles that cascaded past the shoulder, and at Valentino, there were ornate gold versions.

Pearls have been a popular trend for several seasons now, but for spring, they were reinvented with new designs. From mismatched earrings at Jason Wu to headpieces at Khaite to knotted necklaces at Miu Miu, there are plenty of fresh ways to wear pearls in 2020.
