Dainty Jewelry latest-trends-simple-minimalist-2017-latest-designer-topHey gorgeous! Whether it’s everyday street style, date night dresses or work outfits, minimalist jewelry goes with everything. The simple dainty jewelry pieces are versatile as well as lovable. In fact, they’re perfect even for retail therapy.

Of course, every girl starts out with dainty jewelry as a kid, but my real love for minimalist pieces started when during my Harvard years. On weekends after brunch or so, my friends and I would go to Zinnia, this local store in Harvard Square that has a great collection of jewelry by designers all over the country. The pieces, some themed, some exotic, some really quirky, were a treat to look at, and of course my jewelry collection expanded to include many of them, that I still love to wear.

Although some styles of minimalist dainty jewelry don’t go out of fashion, but we do keep seeing new styles. Wanna know what this year’s latest styles are in simple jewelry? let’s check out what’s in! Get inspired by the top jewelry designer brands, and update your work and street style look!

Top Trends in Designer Dainty Jewelry

Minimalist Studs

Whether you have multiple piercings or not, studs are the basics of minimalist jewelry. Every woman needs a few staples in her closet. This year, we’re seeing basic geometric shapes like rectangles, bars and plain circles and logo studs. Two-toned studs are super-in, especially with simpler shapes. Textures like hammered metals are also in. Also try novelty shapes like bees, flowers or stars.

Simple Earrings

Minimalist earrings are getting uniquely thin and flimsy. Very exquisite and delicate jewelry is really my all-time favorite.Loving this type of wire earring for summers…

Dainty Bangles & Cuffs

Thin cuffs (or bangles) are also something we’re seeing a lot this season. Try ones with cool texts or sayings on them, or go for quirky creative shapes like knots. Geometric bracelets are my faves right now.

Dainty Chokers

Thin flimsy chokers are of course, very trendy right now. You can try layered chain chokers with tiny beadspendants or charms. Or go for thin leather strip chokers, or my favorites – thin iridescent chokers. Plain chain choker sets are also good to try this year.

Minimalist Necklaces

Thin dainty necklaces don’t just have to be plain chains. And they aren’t for plain Janes either (see what I did there, haha)! The latest trends in minimalist necklaces include long bar or Y-shaped chain necklaces, tiny semi-precious stone pendants like agate or lapis lazuli, thin fringe necklaces or plain geometric charms.
