Colour blocking is the hottest trend this season. We tell you how to stay on-trend with this look
Either bright and bulky or full and fierce, the chunky chains are one of summer's hottest trends. We adore this easy accessory for a number of simple reasons: it adds just the posh pizzazz needed to your present wardrobe essentials, accompanies well with everything from a casual T-shirt to a summer dress, and there are cool styles available through all price ranges. Altogether, this all-purpose fashion addition tops off our list!
How To Wear
You can opt for gold or silver – or a combination of gold and silver one day. Then another day perhaps you can add a chunky and more colourful pendant to enhance the tone of your outfit. Buying single slides or pendants is an inexpensive way to change the look of your necklace and your jewellery wardrobe.
Border chain necklaces are in. Wear a shorter necklace and then border it with a chunky chain or perhaps a colourful bead chain. Take a good look at your jewellery. Long chains can possibly be worn as a belt or they can be doubled around your neck and worn in layers. They can also be worn doubled then tied under your neck and dangled down.
If bold colour isn't for you, try a softer look with neutral tones and natural stones or shells. They can make you come across as calm and glowing.
Some looks never go out of style. Certainly you should feel comfortable wearing your jewellery, and it's OK to mix and match even very expensive jewellery with fun finishing touches.
Be aware that bright colours, neutrals, golds and silvers, beads of every shape and size, clunky or feminine – and the strategic look of black and white are always striking. Whether you pick up something great and cheap at a local market, or if that piece you've been wanting so badly is on sale, have fun with it. Take a risk with your jewellery. People will notice and you will feel great.
