New jewelry is one of the easiest ways to accent your outfit, as well as a great way to keep up with the season's latest looks.
Whatever your personal style, it's essential to have a selection of trendy jewelry on hand. This is especially the case during the warmer months when we feel more inclined to show off our best jewelry against bare, sun-kissed skin.
And, with many inspirational styles on the catwalks, this season is an exciting time to add some new summer jewelry to your collection.
Here are the hottest jewelry trends to watch out for in 2019.
1. Stacked Bangles
Bangles, bracelets, cuffs - whatever you call them, arm jewelry is seriously hot right now. Labeled as a key microtrend for 2019, a stack of simple bangles on your wrist will ensure you're totally on-trend this year.
What we love about this look is how layering and stacking bangles can be so individual to you, while also showing that you follow the latest trends. Not to mention, you can build up your bangle collection over time, adding new pieces to create a different mix and match look every day.
2. Linked Up
Chains and links of all sizes were a big trend on the runway and on the street for spring-summer 2018, although our favorite for summer has to be the thicker chain-link necklaces.
So, if dainty necklaces were never your thing then now is the time to say hello to the new trend for bold chains, perfect for adding instant edge to your 2019 neck game.
These kinds of thick chains make a statement and instantly change a basic summer staple like a white vest into something more fashion-forward. Pairing a thick chain with a floaty summer dress feels very 2019.
For maximum impact, go for this 32-inch Cuban link chain, available in both the stainless steel finish and the gold-plated finish. Or, if you're not quite ready to make such a statement, this 26-inch chain is a great way to tap into the trend.
3. Flower Power
Seashells were a huge jewelry trend last summer, gracing the ears, necks, wrists, and ankles of influencers like Leandra Cohen and Doina Ciobanu.
And, while shells have seen a resurgence for this summer, we can't help but think the look has been done enough for us to want something fresh for 2019.
And, nothing says fresh like this season's flower-inspired jewelry. Yes, we can still hear Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in "The Devil Wears Prada" sarcastically dismissing florals as "groundbreaking" for spring. But it just feels so right to embrace the natural beauty of floral jewelry this season.
4. Beach Jewelry
Beach jewelry isn't exactly a particular style or design. But, it's a trend you need to be aware of in 2019 because accessorizing your bikini with a few summer jewelry pieces is very now. And, since you accessorize all your other outfits with jewelry, why not style your swimwear too?
We know what you're thinking, you don't want to wear your best jewelry to the beach only to have it swept away by a wave or lose a stone in the sand. That's why beach jewelry has to be a little more practical if you plan on actually going swimming rather than lounging with a cocktail.
First of all, you wouldn't want your skin to turn green when your jewelry gets wet, so opting for pieces that are safe is a must when accessorizing your swimwear.
And, while we've seen many Instagrammers wearing their prized engagement rings at the beach, it might be a better idea to leave your diamonds in the hotel safe. Instead, a selection of stacking rings is a practical yet pretty way to adorn your fingers for the beach.
Simple bar pendants are another winner when paired with a bikini, as does a diamond-cut chain or two. And, for your ears, trendy earrings like these hinged hoops or these huggie earrings look stylish, plus you don't have to worry about losing an earring back.
5. Layered Chains
If the chunky chains we mentioned above aren't your style, you'll be pleased to hear that layering up a combination of more delicate chains is also a key look for 2019.
Layered chains have been a popular Instagram jewelry trend for a while. But now they've graced the necks of models at McQueen and Paco Rabanne, this look is sure to explode.
The beauty of layering chains is how it can add a new dimension to basic jeans and a tee, while also remaining laid-back and casual at the same time. And, the best part is that it means you can show off your accumulation of necklaces at once!
Simple, delicate chains work best for this layered look. But, don't feel you have to limit yourself to chains. Adding in some pendants with stones and charms allows you to add your own personal touch.
