Spring is already upon us, and like many fashion gurus and fashionistas out there, we’re already looking ahead to what will likely be the hottest trends of the year in terms of earrings and ear accessories. In this blog, we’ve compiled some of what we believe will be the jewelry trends you need to jump on right now.
According to Anush Hovhannisyan of the Fashionisers, the jewelry industry, as a whole, is moving away from minimalist and understated earrings, to those that embrace big, bold, and audacious design elements. “More is more” is the overall trend of Spring/Summer 2017.
In what might be oddest earring trend of the year, Anush believes that non-identical earrings will catch on. The idea being, to “leave behind everything symmetric and balanced, thus opening up the whole charm of asymmetry.”
According to Vogue Magazine, the hottest earrings and ear accessories this year will look to the not-so-distant future for inspiration. The “art school earring” will be one of the biggest fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2017. Inspired by futuristic lines, unique shapes and interesting material choices, this style of earring is sure to get you noticed.
Justine Carreon looks at some of the trends she noticed at the most recent New York Fashion Week, Justine’s examination focuses on the top brands to look out for in 2017, as opposed to the different styles one might want to consider to liven up their look. Some of the more notable brands include Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela, and many others.
For those of us who really want to turn heads and wear something on their ears that is outside-the-box, is another trend identified by Vogue for Spring/Summer 2017, known as the fantasy ear cuff. These are essentially a string of piercings organized in an interesting way, and are described as having bold, graphic, and recognizable shapes, such as a pair of headphones, or a rose.
The same trend was also identified by InStyle, noting that the trend allows people to “channel their inner Rockstar.”
