TREND REPORT: SS17 JEWELLERY
Here at OTL HQ we never look to jewellery to ‘make’ an outfit, but in the words of Diane von Furstenburg, we allow it to act ‘like the perfect spice – it always complements what is already there’.
This season it’s all about the rise of the statement necklace – statement everything, in fact. This doesn’t mean that the choker is on a decline, so don’t panic girls – it’s still as strong a contender as ever and is a long way off making an exit. The focus for this Spring Summer is around futuristic pieces, that are more structural (Look to our Sweet Deluxe Circular Necklace if you want to nail this trend!). This may be a lot to take in at once but, a little variety never hurt anybody, hey! Especially when it comes in the form of uncut minerals as seen on the runways of Stella McCartney, or Prada inspired art deco vibes.
Earrings have taken centre stage this Spring Summer and for good reason too. Designers such as Proenza Schouler have opted for an arty approach – far from prior seasons minimalistic angle. Designers are experimenting and making use of innovative materials and allowing graphic shapes to be a prominent feature throughout. Here at OTL, experimenting is something we live by and this is one trend we adore this season. If you feel the same, then you’ll need to grab a pair of Sweet Deluxe Lip Earrings - they give any look the ‘pop’ of personality it may be looking for.
The saying ‘less is more’ has never been truer than this season either – who knew that losing an earring could make such a fashion statement? Dare to be different and wear one earring for high fashion feels.
Layering will always be a thing in the eyes of fashion, so why not try layering your jewellery? An assortment of bangles and bracelets are a ‘go to’ and give an effortless air to a look. Oh, and in case you were wondering - cuffs are back, many thanks to Louis Vuitton. These are idyllic for layering also, as can be worn on your wrist or above the elbow. Sweet Deluxe’s Cuff with Black Stone is the perfect added extra!
