In 2021, the global jewelry market size was $249.02 billion, and it’s projected to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% until 2030.
People from various cultures love adorning themselves with beautiful pieces, and it’s a universal language everyone understands. Picking the right jewelry can make you shine. However, trends do come and go, so you want to make sure the money you’re spending is worthwhile.
If you don’t have any clue where to start when buying jewelry, then read on. We’ll show you how to choose trendy jewelry that you’ll love and want to wear!
Bracelets can add a pop of color to your arm and quickly brighten up an otherwise dull outfit. And the beauty of bracelets is there are many materials and thicknesses, which make them either standalone pieces or stackable ones.
For example, if you choose a chunky wooden bracelet, you should wear only that. Otherwise, your arms can look cluttered and heavy with jewelry.
On the other hand, if you have some thin golden bracelets, you can stack several similar ones to create a layered effect. If they have gemstones, then even better, as they’ll provide contrasting colors throughout.
If you lead an active lifestyle, it’s also better to choose thinner and tighter bracelets rather than loose and chunky ones. That way, you can go on with your daily life without jewelry getting in your way. It also lessens the chances of you damaging your valuable pieces.
Necklaces are some of the best jewelry to wear if you’re not huge on fashion. Like with bracelets, there are many styles and materials to choose from (mostly metal or rope). This makes them just as versatile, which means you can wear your necklaces with pretty much any outfit you choose.
If you have necklaces of varying lengths, you can wear them all at once and layer them, especially if the designs are simple and the strands are thin. Otherwise, you’ll want to wear only one statement piece that’s either thick and/or has a huge centerpiece or pendant.
Be mindful of the top you’re wearing though. For instance, a choker or very short necklace can complement a V-neck shirt. But a long necklace can add a nice accent to a plain solid-colored top, especially if it’s black and the necklace has silver or gold.
Earrings can draw attention to your hair and face. This is especially true if you pick trendy pairs that everyone else is wearing!
For formal events, you can opt for simple yet elegant studs with beautiful gemstones. There are also gorgeous hoops that’ll highlight your facial features.
For everyday wear, you can go for earrings that are edgier if you want. There are pairs made with funny sayings, cute icons, cartoon characters, etc. You can also wear hoops with casual wear if you wish.
Are you into the punk style? Then you can slowly stretch your ears to get a larger ear gauge size. You can then put in plugs that are definitely statement pieces that’ll get everyone looking!
For trendy jewelry, consider ear cuffs. They’re perfect if you don’t have your ears pierced, as these pieces fit snugly along your ear. There are some cool ones made in the shape of animals or even mystical creatures if you want to go for a fantasy look.
Rings are popular jewelry since they’re the most “out of the way” pieces you can get. They fit snugly on your fingers, and most of the time, you don’t even know they’re there.
Of course, you should wear your wedding and engagement rings if you have them. You’ll get to show off your spouse’s love and thought for you. But even if you already have these rings, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t wear other rings too!
While metal rings are quite popular, you do see wooden and even plastic rings. In fact, if you want to go for trendy, your best bet is plastic, as there are many whimsical pieces that will catch everyone’s eye.
In addition, you can get rings that have either one large gem or several smaller ones sprinkled around. Both are trendy and will stay in fashion for years to come, so it’s really up to you which type you want to get.
For wearing rings, you’ll want to follow the same general tips for necklaces and bracelets. Either stack several smaller pieces or select a larger one to show off. Otherwise, you risk an aesthetic that looks too chaotic and busy.
Other Tips for Wearing Stylish Jewelry
While we’ve given you several choices for jewelry here, it’s best not to wear them all at once. This eliminates a focal point, so it’ll look like you slapped your look together and give you a sloppy appearance.
If you want to wear three or more pieces, it’s best to pick one large piece and make all the others smaller. This helps keep the chaos down and draw people’s eyes where you want them.
