Love cute and simple, dainty jewelry? Discover the latest trends in designer minimalist jewelry and see what are the must haves this year!
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
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.
Clip On Earrings – Chanel (Bees)
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…
In minimalist bracelets, we’re seeing beaded and small chain-link styles. Go for basic chains and monochromatic styles with charms or dainty pendants.
Cocktail Friendship Bracelet – Marc Jacobs
Atlas Bar Bracelet – Tiffany
Olive Leaf Bracelet – Tiffany
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.
Hammered Crossover Cuff – Tiffany
Wire Bracelet – Tiffany
Thin flimsy chokers are of course, very trendy right now. You can try layered chain chokers with tiny beads, pendants 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.
Forever 21 Beaded Choker – BP. (silver dotted)
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.
