Summer Jewelry Must Haves
This year’s summer jewelry trends are all about playful, bold, vibrant pieces. While minimalist jewelry will always be in style, the trends this season center around bright pops of color, layered looks, and statement-making accessories. The Prep Obsessed Summer 2020 jewelry collection has arrived, and we are so excited to share a few of our favorite summer jewelry pieces. Dive into the top trends of the season and see which summer necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and other accessories are making a splash!
Beaded jewelry is one of THE trends of summer 2020. The hottest summer bracelets feature multi-colored beads of all shapes and sizes. The best part? Beaded bracelets were practically made for stacking and layering. This stacked beaded bracelet takes the guesswork out of the equation by pairing five vibrant, appropriately mixed and matched strands. We also love this large beaded statement necklace for adding a bit of effortless glam to any look.
'90s girls, get excited—anklets are back in style! Ankle bracelets have been repeatedly featured in major fashion shows, and this 2020 resurgence is all about luxe materials like pearls, beads, and delicate chains. A freshwater pearl anklet is elegant enough to be worn all season long, while a colorful beaded anklet strikes the ideal balance of fun and fashionable.
Anklets aren’t the only oldschool trend having a revival this summer; puka shells are back, and they’re more sophisticated than ever. Gold-toned puka shells give summer earrings, bracelets, and necklaces a chic twist. Consider these gold dangle puka shell earrings, which are a gorgeous choice both for casual wear and upscale occasions. Meanwhile, this puka shell bracelet stack plays homage to both the puka shell and beading trends of the season.
Summer necklaces were made for layering. With so many fresh, eye-catching pieces to choose from, it’s easy to build an effortlessly stylish necklace stack. What’s the key to nailing this look? Start with a chunkier statement piece as your base, like this gray and gold disc necklace, and then gradually layer on dantier charm necklaces and long pendant necklaces.
This season’s jewelry collection definitely skews towards the maximalist side...and we’re obsessed! Sporting a bright multi-color crystal collar necklace is a surefire way to make a statement and turn heads when you enter the room. Style it with understated, solid-colored dresses and blouses to keep your look sophisticated and polished. These multi-color scalloped hoop earrings are another bold choice that will dress up any summer outfit.
Add a touch of vintage elegance to your summer outfits with one of our favorite 2020 jewelry trends: sunglasses chains. Pair your favorite oversized sunnies with a pearl glasses lanyard for a seriously stylish look. Feeling a bit bolder? Opt for a multi-color beaded strand, or this trendy green glasses lanyard with oversized acrylic links. Functional and fashionable? Yes please!
These are just a few of our favorite new summer jewelry pieces—head over to the shop to check out the full collection, and let us know which trends and styles you’re obsessing over in the comments below.
