A new season means new styles, new trends, a new frame of mind. Especially when we’re shaking off the winter ho-hums and moving into bright, colorful Spring.
This sounds great but actually leaves us standing in our closet trying to re-fresh stuff we wore last year. Or facing new items we’ve purchased and need to pull together into a great outfit.
In either case, the solution?
Why, accessories, of course.
So here are the top jewelry trends for this Spring-Summer season that’ll make styling your closet easy-peasy.
I’ve also included a snippet about who each trend works best for and things to keep in mind before clicking ‘add-to-cart.’
Because accessories are fun and easy. But they need to do more than hang around and sparkle.
They need to; accentuate your favorite feature, flatter your body shape, and hint about how amazing you are without you having to say a word.
With that out of the way, what do you say we dive in?
There is nothing more ladylike than popping on a string of pearls.
There’s also nothing that adds interest to an edgy outfit than piling on gobs of them. And that’s the key this Spring/Summer Season – wear gobs of them.
Style Hack – You likely have numerous single strands hanging out in your jewelry box. Pull them all together (in different lengths) and wear them together.
Style Hack – Turn a longer necklace strand into a wrap bracelet.

There are so many fun cuffs out there right now I could’ve literally done a whole article just on them.
These are a perfect accessory if you love your sculpted arms and want to attract attention to them. They’re also a fresh solution if you’re tired of layering on tons and tons of bracelets like we’ve been doing the last few seasons.
Or if you’re built more delicate and need a simpler option. Check these out.
Banana Republic also has some classic metal options. You can see them here.
You have a couple of options here…
You can either mix and match your own earrings to create an asymmetrical pair or purchase ones already done for you.
Style Hack – If you decide to go the DIY route, keep in mind they need to have something or nothing in common with each other.
The same metal
A similar stone
Or a common weight.
This usually isn’t too tough since we’re attracted to similar accessories over and over again. And likely already own items that’ll work together.
Or if you go the ‘nothing in common’ route – choose a stud and pair it with a giant chandelier.
If that sounds like too much work and you want to pick a pair put together for you, here are two fun options.
I love the bold subtly (oxymoron? Jumbo shrimp.) of these. They’re clearly different, but not so much that if you’re just dipping your toe into the trend, you’ll feel they’re shrieking, ‘Notice me, I’m different.’
Or, if you’re a fearless accessorizer, take a look at these beauties. They’re brilliant for drawing attention to your swan-like neck.

One caveat – if you’re petite or have a delicate frame, this can easily overwhelm your frame.
