Collar necklaces have always been a statement maker, not for meek or timid to be sure. And much like apparel, there are distinct trends in jewelry. A number of years ago it was all about over-sized, geometric, can’t be missed necklaces. This gave way to a trend that was the polar opposite: layers of delicate gold chain necklaces circa Carrie Bradshaw of early 2000s.
The last few seasons this trend has given way to the larger than life, in your face, chunky gold necklace—the bigger the better. And this bigger than better trend is still going strong and it is not exclusive to what is hanging from your neck. Chandelier earrings were also a hot commodity. Like this stand-alone earring from Valentino.
But, as most trends go in the fickle world of fashion—they evolve.
Chandelier earrings were BIG the last few seasons (pun intended). And bigger and bolder accessories continue to take center stage. Some well clod fashionistas even mixed it up: wearing different or mis-matched over-sized earrings, while others wore only a single chandelier earring. Others chose to wear more than one chunky chain necklace, layering them like they did their daintier cousins a few seasons back.
And Miki here of Miki a la Mode is sporting three trends in one: the chunky gold necklace, layering gold necklaces, and a statement chandelier earring. Oh la la she has style. As does the much sought after influencer Carolina Daur. But we all know that!
And the collar necklace could just be that mythical beast we fashion influencers love to chase
Could the collar necklace be the next go to trend in necklaces? I saw a few of these this past September, albite Fashion Week was a far cry from its usual pomp and circumstance. Would you wear a collar necklace? Or chandelier earrings? Do you follow trends or are you are trend setter? I am always on the look out for the next must have item that no one knows they want yet. And the collar necklace could just be that mythical beast we fashion influencers love to chase.
