With all the iconic trends that have started within the ages, it’s not easy to create an accessory that stands out on the runway. So when a designer wants to make a statement, it better be big. New York Fashion Week is known to display the latest trends in fashion, accessories, and jewelry. We’ve kept out eye on the streets and the catwalk for the next up and coming jewelry trends.
Check out the top jewelry trends from New York Fashion Week 2016.
Trend #1: Design Collaborations
Tibi and Paige Novick paired for this season’s fashion week as the duo created an organic, 18-karat yellow gold-plated brass earring. The accessory was merely created as a statement piece.
Another hit collab was Ileana Makri’s bridge jewelry line “I aM” Ileana Makri. The designer’s jewels were two-tone white and yellow gold plated styles from ear cuffs, earrings, chokers and a bracelet.
Trend #2: Hoops of all kind
Altuzarra’s runway featured major oversized chunky hoop earrings in shades from matte yellow to silver. The statement hoops were quite accentuated with slicked back hair and editorial designs. Hoops of all sizes are having their comeback, especially ones with a twisted layout. The simple, yet bold hoop trend is making headlines with Tibi x Paige Novick, Diane von Furstenberg and more.
Hellessy followed clean lines with interlocking circles to complement the strong features of the garments. When you think about the chunky gold jewelry from the previous seasons, this is quite a subtle approach to a new trend.
The rose gold hoops from CG by Chris Gelinas are another fashion favorite as these hoops range from a mere few inches to reaching the shoulder lengths. The designs coppery shine proved to elevate the line’s trends with a black shirt and short sleeve gray sweater combo.
Trend #3: the Solo Rider
The single earring trend is taking the rein, particularly in the Oscar de la Renta show. Designers sent large silver earrings down the runway as Dio Lee embraced the pure minimalism with large hoops.
Monse took an edgier route with sculptural dangers with asymmetrical separates. The subversive elements gave a finished effect. You will also find items found throughout the designs with sequined chokers, dainty septum rings, and deconstructed suits.
Trend #4: Chandelier Swings
Designers including Marchesa and Oscar de la Renta are taking a traditional approach to bold earrings that suit evening wear. Oscar de la Renta translated the chandelier trend into gold-ancient inspired earrings with a Mediterranean feel, while Marchesa took tons of crystals in a star and moon theme.
Trend #5: Cut-Out Art Earrings
The Proenza Schouler earrings are the perfect combination between Calder mobile and a Matisse cut-out. Michael Kors also matched a 60s earring to the outfits for a flower-power movement along the runway, almost as a tribute to Twiggy. This trend is expected to cross the magazines in the fashion.
Trend #6: Heavy Metals
Alexander Wang showcased industrial pieces to complement the edginess of his clothing. The chains are paired with a lighter as necklaces while earrings are hung from chains. Hammered metals were spotted in runways as Tom Ford provides the proponent trend. Creatures of the Wind also followed the trend with oversized hammered metal earrings that compliments the flowing designs.
Trend #7: Wired
Rosie Assoulin’s jewelry line is one of a kind as Assoulin applies her intense focus on the accessories the same way she does with her clothes. Her gold wire facial outlines are out of this world as it is surely expected to be seen in fashion editorials.
Trend #8: Button Earrings
This season’s trends are entirely evolving as button earrings on Hellessy and Kate Spade runways just as they were with large drop earrings.
Trend #9: Golden Pendants
Pure golden pendants are always a fashion accessory. But this season, we noticed the layered look everywhere from the streets of New York to the Yeezy runway.
Trend #10: Collar Necklaces
While the major choker comeback rules 2016, 2017 might be in for a relaxed collar necklace. We’ve spotted simple collar necklaces at the Dianne Von Furstenberg and Carolina Herrera show.
Trend #11: Tribal Necklaces
All over the New York streets and runways, we’ve spotted the large, tribal-inspired statement necklaces. The Tom Form show was filled with oversized, opulent, heavy-metal necklaces that are made from gold hoops, rough cut shapes and hammered metal.
