Just like many of you took a break from wearing makeup during the last year and a half, I took a hiatus from wearing jewelry. I just didn't see the point in busting out my favorite rings, earrings, and necklaces when I'm working from home and nobody could see them, and they felt too fussy to wear with my WFH sweatpants. Now, however, I'm ready to rekindle my love for jewelry as a fun, mood-enhancing accessory that always feels so personal.
Below, I rounded up seven jewelry trends I've been spotting in Los Angeles specifically, although these pieces can truly be worn anywhere in the world. Some trends are more maximalist while others will appeal to more subtle dressers, but I guarantee you'll find something you love.
1. Colorful, Chunky Rings
This trend is just so fun. The more the merrier, so don't be afraid to pile on lots of chunky, colorful rings to make a statement. Bonus points for a coordinating manicure.
2. Nameplate Necklaces and Rings
Say my name. Emily Ratajkowski, pictured above, went all-in on the nameplate trend and wore one necklace with her son's name and one inscribed with the word "mama." How cute is that?
4. Rhinestone Fringe Earrings
As you slowly re-enter the going-out scene, consider trying a pair of rhinestone fringe earrings. They'll look perfect with your favorite LBD for a night on the town.
The anklets you wore in middle school have some serious staying power. You can wear them with anything from sneakers to heels (or, you know, Gucci clogs).
7. Beaded Necklaces
Beaded necklaces are the gift that keeps on giving. The trend has been popular for quite some time but it shows no signs of slowing down—particularly thanks to the resurgence of Y2K trends as of late. Copy Emily Ratajkowski and play up the colorful vibe with a printed swimsuit.
