5 Jewelry Trends That Are on Their Way Out

Many of us fall into one of two camps when it comes to jewelry: You wear the same few pieces 95% of the time because they’re sentimental, of the utmost quality, and pretty much compliment everything you wear. Or you’re all about riding the wave of the latest jewelry trends that fall in and out of popularity every few seasons. The below is likely more for the latter group, but we happen to think there's something for everyone—sentimentals and trend-followers, alike—beginning with five styles that have slowly fallen out of the spotlight.

Think about the prevalence of bib necklaces á la 2013 or the obsession with all things '90s punk including thick ribbon chokers just a few seasons ago. These are just a couple styles we've noticed have become more scarce recently. If you're in the mood to freshen up your accessories collection, we suggest starting with the five of-the-moment pieces below that are quickly becoming 2018's must-try silhouettes.

Here's where to start and what to avoid (at least for the time being).

 

On Their Way Out: Ribbon Chokers

Instead try: Heavy-metal necklaces

Opt for a weightier, metal piece, be it in the form of a collar or bold pendant.

On Their Way Out: Statement Bib Necklaces

Instead try: Statement '80s earrings

They have just as much flash and wow factor, but with a rad, retro, often high-shine twist.

On Their Way Out: Wonder Woman-esque Cuffs

Instead try: Grown-up charm bracelets

It's not just about trying a daintier silhouette than a cuff bracelet. It's about finding a playful, personal style that speaks to you.

On Their Way Out: Curtain Tassel Earrings

Instead try: Dangly crystal earrings

Swap your bold fabric tassel earrings for ones with a bit more punch.

On Their Way Out: Traditional Chandelier Earrings

Instead try: Modern mobiles

The formality of traditional chandelier earrings has been replaced by baubles that orbit, swing, and come in all forms of unique shapes.
