Spring Trend Alert - Statement Necklaces

There are three key necklace trends you should be buying this Spring/Summer season - Oversized chokers, multi-layered and statement necklaces.  

Choker mania is still alive this spring season!   On the runway we saw chunky metallic chokers from Balmain, Loewes chunky gold chains, and Chanel’s pearled embellished chokers, and many more from designers Saint Laurent, Oscar De de la Renta, and Fendi. Chokers are now seen in so many different forms - choker necklaces, textured - fur, pearled, embroidered, chunky metals, dainty chains…the list goes on.  

Last year dainty chain layering hit the scene - this season we're going to see much more of that. Multi-layering chokers and necklaces with tiers of embellishments, charms, and chunky chains. On the runway Moschino showed chunky chains layered with pearls and large alphabet letters across the neck.  Alexander McQueen showcased the chunky choker with tiers and layers upon layers attached.  

Bold statement necklaces made a splash on the runways and we are loving it!  After years of the dainty, barely there jewelry, it’s refreshing to see eye catching pendants, in obscure shapes and sizes.  As seen at Valentino, Gucci, Moschino, and Dries Van Noten - large scale metal pendants in gemstones, florals, pearls, and metallic shapes were seen.  Vogue reported, “ The past few seasons have been dominated by the choker, but the sautoir - or long necklace - has made a bold comeback.” It’s a fresh direction for Spring/summer, and one we can’t wait to try.
