Minimal jewellery has held centre stage for a bit too long because the next big jewellery trend really questions it. In my inbox, on fashion people, and on the streets, I'm starting to see something take over, and I'm calling it "elevated bubble jewellery." Think of it as a take on the beaded jewellery that we wore during summer camp but way more sophisticated. 

Whether you're styling this trend for a beach getaway that involves lots of colour or a week spent going in and out of the office, bubble jewellery will instantly make you look put-together. Let's discuss the runway and Instagram moments that convinced me that this trend is it.

Style Notes: My favourite way to wear the bubble-jewellery trend is in silver or gold. If you're tired of the chunky necklaces we've seen the past few seasons, this feels like a very fresh take.

Style Notes: The bubble-jewellery trend first caught my attention about a year ago at the Bottega Veneta S/S 23 show. It took some time to pick up speed, but now, it seems to be going full force ahead with many brands adopting it.

Style Notes: For vacation or just days when I want to wear more colour, I'm loving this green iteration from Anni Lu, one of the brands that sold me on this trend.

Style Notes: Make like Danielle and layer up for a truly impactful look.

Style Notes: Another brand that convinced me that this trend was here to stay was Jenny Bird. It has such a good collection of bubble jewellery, and I've been wearing this ring on repeat.

Style Notes: As dedicated minimalists, jewellery is a brilliant way to add a little flare, and this trend works so well. Delicate jewellery can rest in your jewellery box and these bold bubbly styles take centre stage.

Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to Bazaar.com, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor.
