Fashion Edits For Clip Earring Lovers

Jewellery Trends Winter 2011 – 2012

It might be in the minus degree temperatures outside, but that does’t mean we should fall out of fashion! There are no signs of this winter ending any time soon, so before London Fashion Week is upon us again, let’s look back and see what are the trends for earrings, bracelets and necklaces of the season…

FEATHER CLIP ON EARRINGS

Following the summer swing, this winter, designers continued their craze on feathers, which were seen all over necklaces, purses, gloves, scarves and of course – clip on earrings. Moving from bright feathers of the warm months, to the deeper toned ones of the winter, this season is all about the Bohemian hippy style. Deep greens, purples, oranges, reds, blacks and browns are all a perfect choice for a dazzling look, with a hippy twist!

BOHO CHIC JEWELLERY

The bohemian look doesn’t just end with feathers; it’s an entire appearance, behaviour and attitude. Beads of colours from the whole spectrum are combined together to make a feeling of carelessness, mingled with on-trend style.

METALLICS

There is nothing new about designers using a lot of metal finishes in their creations, but this season brings us a new look! We’re not talking about the bright metallics, but about the muted, brushed tones like antique golds or gunmetals. Bronze, deep purple, dark red and hematite are all a part of this winter’s rich, deep colours. Pile them on layers of bracelets, necklaces and dangling clip on chandelier earrings, and you will surely stand out in the wintery crowd.

THE RAW

When we say ‘raw’ we mean all the jewellery, which is purposefully made to look unfinished, or simply – unrefined. You’ve probably see the dull rocks that are split in half, and inside there are gorgeous gems or glitter effects (‘sugar coating’ in jewellery terms). The sparkling effects on the stone are crystals known as drusy, and they come in vivid colours. Drusy stones have been popular for a while, but this winter they are larger, bolder and finer (if that word is appropriate). And nobody knows better about them than Barbara Easton! Expect more in the collection launching soon.

BLACK – SILVER – CRYSTAL – SHAMBALA

It shouldn’t sound like a bad combination at all, so why haven’t silver, crystal and black ever entangled themselves like they have this winter before?! It’s because black is usually a strong colour for the cold seasons, and not many designers prefer to use it in excess – unless it is combined with polished silver and crystal. The gorgeous combination sits with authority and it perfect for the serious, but adventurous woman who works hard, and secretly dreams of being somewhere exciting and even dangerous…
