With the world in recession, the fashion industry has responded by designing jewellery that is more in line with this year’s feeling, creating designs that are as far away from ‘bling’ and lavishness as biker chic is from bohemian chic. The jewellery in fashion is set to be more elegant and simple, going back to bohemian routes and fantastic decades, like the 1970′s.
Travelling though to this spring is the ethnic look, which will favor large pendent necklaces, chokers, feathers, beads and byzantine necklaces. Large hoop earrings will be a favorite accessory to add to any ethnic outfit, where bold and bright Aztec patterns are dominant. Flowing nomad style ethnic outfits also fit well with chokers made of beads this season.
We’re going back in time this season, as the 70′s return to our catwalks. The hippie wave that was prominent in the 70′s is set to have a big influence on spring 2011′s trends, with beads and hoop earrings being the coolest accessory around. So feel those hippy vibes and think ‘love’ and ‘peace’ this spring, by adding cool beads, beaded gemstones and hooped earrings to your jewellery collection.
With the feeling of love and peace being so intense this year, designers have refreshed the romantic look, adding sensual bohemian aesthetics to their range. Think feminine, British country garden and ballet dancing, and you have 2011′s romantic look. In terms of accessories, this means you can adorn yourself with pretty feminine icon jewellery, with flower or butterfly designs, charm necklaces, lighter colours of lace and crosses. Use the colours and patterns of this aesthetics (whites, pinks, creams, flowers etc) to create that fresh romantic look.
Another unusual look to be set free this season is the handcraft look. No longer considered tacky or unprofessional, the handcraft look will give you that ‘arty’ and unique appearance you have been searching for. With this style, you can experiment with handcrafted looks, from beading to leather fringing, enabling you to have a much more varied style day to day.
With a return to simpler more economic jewellery this spring, expect to see more jewellery ranges become eco conscious, using renewable materials.Tags: ballet dancing, butterfly designs, charm necklaces, fashion industry, going back in time, hooped earrings, jewellery collection, large hoop earrings
If you’re someone who loves fashion and dressing well but finds the whole thing a little bit confusing, then you’re not alone. Fashion changes so fast it can be hard to keep up. To help you out, in the realm of jewellery at least, we’ve put together a little guide to the top trends for 2011. Mismatched bracelets are going to be really big, which is great as it means you can largely just wear things you’ve previously bought and don’t have to worry about what goes with what.
Extremely long drop earrings are also going to be big in 2011 – the longer the better. This is a great chance to really make a fashion statement with your jewellery. Big hoop earrings are going to be really popular but it’s the long earrings that just skim or ‘dust’ along your shoulders that are the hot ticket item right now. Earrings with a couple of crystals or little gems that catch the light are one really great way to wear the trend for maximum impact.
The cuff watch is also going to be a big 2011 women’s jewellery trend. They are available in a whole range of colors and designs, which means you have loads of options to help your accessory stand out, particularly if you go for bright colors and intricate patters. Cuff watches come with a thick band of fabric for a strap, making them idea to make a bold statement and they just slide on like a bracelet. Alternatively, you could wear a metal watch with a thin silver or gold strap.
For the vintage lovers among you, you can benefit in 2011 with the popularity of vintage-style pendant necklaces. You may well already have something like this in your closet, so get hunting to see what you’ve got. Large pendants are sure to help you stand out and they’re a great way to add detail to any outfit. For a pretty, feminine look, try a large fabric flower pendant on a string of beads. You could also go for a metal or plastic pendant for the wow factor.
Our last tip relates to an item of jewellery that’s a true style classic. It’s always popular and will be for years to come, meaning you can get great use out of it – the crystal. In particular, we love the little, sparking gems such as those by Swarovski that add instant glamour to any outfit. The intricate detail they embody really adds a zing to your style while still being ultra classy so you can wear them with practically anything while staying coolly fashionable.Tags: big hoop earrings, drop earrings, fashion changes, fashion jewellery, string of beads, style advice, thick band, vintage lovers

Look for necklaces that are bib and lariat styled. If you are lucky enough to find a fashion necklace that encompasses your entire neckline, you have hit the jackpot!
