While 2016 was all about choker and sautoir necklaces, 2017 is all about statement earrings. From models donning earrings at International fashion weeks to our own desi Fashion Weeks, from single shoulder-grazing earrings to oversized studs, from tassel earrings to stone-embellished jhumkis, from simple hoops to exaggerated pair that can glam any attire, designer earrings are going to be a big game-changer this year.
While we look up to the West for inspiration, we are going back to our roots with the latest oxidized jewelry trend. Recently, The New York Fashion Week runways witnessed the models wearing statement oxidised earrings. The best part is its versatility as to how it can work for both traditional as well as western attires.
Tip: Team the oxidised earrings with block-prints to give the artsy vibes.
2. Stud Earrings
No, we aren’t talking about the teeny-tiny studs but the really huge statement-making stud earrings. All the with -‘It’ brides are wearing intricately-crafted statement studs along with their maang-tikka and choker necklaces. One can choose from a variety of earrings in materials like Kundan, polki, gemstones and enameled studs. Take cues from runway brides and get fashionably.. oh we mean.. happily married!
3. Mystical Blues
The Pantone color of the year may be Greenery but the blue color has its own royal charm. After all, you can oxygenate and reinvigorate with the color Blue as well. Indigo was a huge rage last year and looks like the fashion designers and influencers have picked up the color from the same family this year too. Be it clothes or jewelry, this color won’t disappoint you.
Tip: Choose the same color Blue and go from lighter to darker blue from top to bottom.
4. Oversized Jhumkis
Trends come and go but these jhumkas are always going to be an integral part of our bijoux box. No matter which part of the country you live in, the women have a fascination with these classics. You can find a wide array of jhumkis in gold, silver, pearls, and many more. Recently, Anushka Sharma gave us some serious ‘jhumki’ goals in her movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil when she teamed them up with Lucknowi Chikankari kurtas.
If ‘Go big or go home’ is your mantra, then you should definitely opt for this oversized jhumkis.
If your current mode is ‘fuss-free’, then opt for a minimalistic look. This look is not as effortless as it looks especially when our Instagram feeds are brimming with a crazy mix of textures and fabrics, print on prints and knits on leather kind of clothes. Opt for neutral tones and earth-toned color palettes to achieve the minimalistic look. By the way, Bollywood celebrities Sonam Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have been sporting this trend for a while now.
