Eight jewelry trends you should follow this year
Last year we all were in hibernation mode. Rarely, only on special occasions, we ever ventured out of our homes. It was certainly not a year for us. However, with the New Year 2021, we all are excited to step out of our homes.
With the only resolution of getting everything back to normalcy, we have to gear up. In 2020, most of us spent our time lounging in sweats and slippers. We pampered ourselves to the max by caring for our body and mental health. But hey, what about your wardrobe and other essential accessories?
The pandemic and online zoom sessions have ushered the era of waist-up dressing. It puts jewelry, especially earrings and necklaces, in the spotlight. Even though we maintain social distancing and wear masks, we all want to look good when going out in public.
So trends for accessories this year are all about details and functionality. We all want to express ourselves on zoom, with earrings that are subtle and dainty. We want headbands that can quickly style our hair.
Since 2020 was spent indoors, nothing monumental happened in the world of fashion and accessories. But that helped carry jewelry trends from 2020 into 2021. This means there is no way the dreamland jewelryyou bought last year is going to waste.
Spring/summer is the best time to show it off, whether gazing at the sea or walking in the streets. So if you love jewelry, check out the latest trends you should follow this year.
