The summer wedding season is here—whether you’re planning on getting hitched, or just really love jewelry and accessories, here’s a look at what’s hot in wedding jewelry and accessories for summer 2014, according to the experts at Vogue Paris and msn.com.
Art deco is in — The vintage look has always had its place in wedding jewelry. For this summer, look for unique pieces that combine an antique look with modern style. Revisit your grandmother’s jewelry box for pendants with photos, and ethnic necklaces and bracelets from the old country.
Animals and nature — Animal-inspired jewelry has been popular and continues to trend into this summer, so go ahead and show your inner lioness with exotic animal-motif jewelry. Look for faux animal skin bracelets, faux cheetah or leopard fur necklaces, tiger or elephant head pendants, or feather earrings. Make it personal by selecting an animal that represents you best.
Green is still great — Pantone named emerald the color of the year for 2013, and green is still great for this summer. Pay homage to your love of nature and the outdoors with green gemstone jewelry. Brides-to-be, take note: emeralds are still hot in bridal jewelry, and emeralds are even taking the place of diamonds in many engagement rings.
Metals rock — Silver metals against tan skin add a bit of edge to your look. A recent study by the Silver Promotion Service showed that 46 percent of consumers prefer white metals for diamond jewelry. If you’re feeling bold, go with black diamonds on silver or white metal.
Neon colored highlights —Yes, girls still wanna have fun when it comes to bright, ’80s-inspired colors. Go for neon green, pink, or yellow pieces to inject some ‘80s style into your summer wardrobe.
Odd pieces are in. If you’re into large and unique jewelry, your personal style is trending this summer. Jewelry designers are coming out with off-the-beaten-path pieces using such stones as opals, topaz, and garnets for their unique colors. Go for pieces and gemstones with a raw, organic, bohemian look.
Pastels say summer — Nothing says a spring or summer wedding like pastels. Innocence is in, so look for pastel-colored pearls in lavender or pink—and match your bridesmaids’ dresses with your pearls. At the office, add pastel colored-jewelry to give your neutral-colored office outfits a pop of color.
Retro estate look. There’s no shame in shopping estate sales, vintage stores, pawn shops, and yard sales. Estate jewelry is big, thanks in part to the success of the TV series Downton Abbey, so get out there and snatch up some vintage looking pieces in time for four o’clock tea.
