Fashion trends are constantly changing from season to season, year to year. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to keep up with every trend out there, so we’ve narrowed down five earrings that are in style this year, so you don’t have to spend hours searching the web for that perfect look. These earring trends make a bold statement and will keep you looking fashionable all year.
- Abstract Styles
Nothing says bold like an abstract style. This kind of earring can put you in an entirely different world when it comes to fashion. Abstract says I don’t follow the norm, I am free to express myself as I so choose. Abstract earrings can really add a unique look to your overall visage, giving you a special style all your own.
Abstract can really represent just about anything that strays from the norm. Instead of gold earrings, maybe you’re going to choose black earrings with a white dress. Which abstract look you choose will depend on your taste and the outfit itself.
Try not to go too far outside the box when choosing an abstract look. While a level of uniqueness is certainly appreciated, jewelry or accessories that are too far left-field can often be distracting from the overall look you’re going for, or fail to bring out your best features.
One of the hottest earring/jewelry trends of 2019 in the sea theme. Shells, pearls, and more make their appearance in this trendy look, with bold seashell necklaces and earrings and shiny pearls accenting the very best outfits.
Colored shells can add a certain flair to your outfits, bringing the beauty of the sea to the modern fashion scene. Shells come in all shapes and sizes, with different hues and tints and color schemes to match whatever you’re wearing.
Shells are also quite easy to shape, meaning you can find shell earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and more, or have custom shell jewelry created to your specifications. One thing’s for sure, we absolutely love the way shells look with a summery dress or blouse.
Shells also work well with accents such as topaz or other gems. White shells behind a turquoise gem or stone can really shine and bring out your eyes. Look for shells as one of this year’s hottest earring trends!
- Mismatched Earrings
This could technically fall under the abstract category, but it seems to have developed into a trend of its own this year. Mismatching earrings might seem risky, but when done tastefully, it can actually look really great with certain outfits.
Giving yourself that abstract edge can make a bold statement. You can mismatch colors, shapes, and styles to add diversity and uniqueness to your fashion sense, truly putting you in a league of your own. Are you brave enough to give it a try?
Try mismatching precious stones and warm/cool colors for a stunning and complimentary look. Your mismatched earrings don’t necessarily have to be a complete contrast of one another; in fact, blending different colors can help complement your outfit in a way you wouldn’t have thought of before.
- Resin Earrings
Resin is a material that can be easily shaped into just about anything, painted, and formed into wonderful jewelry. With unlimited shapes and objects to create, the possibilities are truly endless. Perhaps you’ve always wanted earrings shaped like a rose or other flower? Resin can be molded to meet those needs.
Resin earrings aren’t made of any precious metals, so they’ll likely be cheaper than their precious metal counterparts as well. You can get a stunning, complementary look for a fraction of the cost of traditional jewelry with resin alternatives.
- Nickel-Free Earrings
With increased awareness of the harmful effects of the jewelry additive, nickel, the trend this year is making the switch to nickel-free earrings. Nickel is not only an allergen for certain people, making wearing certain jewelry uncomfortable or impossible, but certain nickel compounds have actually been known to cause cancer.
A nickel allergy makes purchasing jewelry quite the task. You’ll want to be sure the jewelry contains little to no nickel as a base or additive, which in itself can be nearly impossible unless you buy pure gold/silver/metals or purchase an earring subscription. With such a service, you’ll have quality jewelry delivered to your house every month for a set price plus shipping.
Nickel is used in pretty much all jewelry as a base metal. The jewelry you’re purchasing is usually a nickel base coated with a precious metal unless the piece is listed as pure gold or silver/platinum/whichever metal you’re looking for. The purer the metal, the less nickel will be present. Alternatively, the cheaper the jewelry, the more nickel will be present.
These five trends are shaping the earring fashions of this year. With some unique looks like abstract earrings and mismatched earrings, you’ll certainly find your share of “different” looks, while more traditional looks like resin or seashells are seeing a comeback this year as well. The most important thing to remember is that your look is uniquely you, so even when you choose to take part in a trend, your own uniqueness is reflected in that trend. Don’t be afraid to branch out and experiment. Pushing your boundaries is the best way to find the look that is absolutely you.
