4 Major Jewellery Trends for Autumn/Winter 2018
As many of you and myself just sent the kids off to school, you probably realise now that it is, in fact, September and Autumn is here and not long after it, there will be Winter. Well, there is no need to dwell on it. We tend to talk about the weather a lot in Ireland and to be honest, talking about especially bad or rainy weather nearly makes it worse than having to just face it. There are many who just embrace the weather and all the good and bad that comes with it. I personally think we should just make the most of it! For once, for those who cannot tolerate the heat (and we had a relatively hot summer) cooler temperatures are a blessing. Those who are tired of the summer wardrobe can look forward to wrapping up and maybe even updating an autumn/winter wardrobe with some new pieces. And those who work majority outside can embrace the elements again. After all, there is no such thing as bad weather, it is how we dress for it. If you are looking for autumn wardrobe inspiration I suggest you check out the only and only Irish style blogger Sue Jackson's post here. I will, however, take you to my world of jewellery. There is no shortage of trends so no matter what your style is, there is something here for you to get back on the trend horse.
We all knew this would happen at some stage and its happening NOW! Pearls are making major come back. If you flick through Vogue, you will see pearls, watch the latest catwalk show, you will see pearls. Pearls are literally everywhere now. So if you don't own pearls, now it's the time to buy them. If you own pearls, now it is the time to wear them!
You might be sensing a theme here, you know, the grandma's accessories (?). However, the brooches are a big trend this season and those are not the type your gran proudly wears to this day out to lunch with ladies. Pin brooches are seen and pinned all over the catwalks now and you know soon there will be a huge item.
Coloured stone engagement rings are increasingly popular and hence the trend is spreading out to everything else jewellery. It's a great way to add colour to any dull outfit and I can definitely see this trend being very popular. You can also choose your birthstone as a stone of choice and accessories featuring birthstones make a great gift in general.
Last but not least, the choker necklaces! Yes, those were a hit start of the year and they are here to stay for the rest of it. If you really want to rock the trend and look like you just stepped off the catwalk, the pearl choker is the way to go. It's a major hit this season. Otherwise, dust off your chokers and head out in confidence.
I hope you enjoyed this blog post!
