Update Your Wardrobe With Jewelry Trends of 2020

Although minimalism has been the strongest influence on designer accessories for quite a few seasons now, big jewelry is coming back in a big way in 2020. From oversized logos to chandelier earrings and beyond, stock your collection with these cutting-edge trends as we head into winter 2020.

Bright Colors

Expect to see a color explosion at your favorite jewelers as bold hues were big on Spring 2020 runways. Marc Jacobs, Ulla Johnson and other high-end designers showcased bright rhinestones and dazzling rainbow floral patterns. Anna Sui spotlighted gorgeous neon gemstone chokers.

Dangling Earrings

Get ready to wear show-stopping shoulder dusters to your holiday soirees. We loved the look of Louis Vuitton’s flowing feather earrings and the tasseled pearl hoops from Prabal Gurung. If you want to be especially daring with the chandelier trend, go asymmetrical and wear it in just one ear paired with a minimal stud or nothing at all. For a more understated occasion, check out the sleek, delicate statement earrings we saw from Lemaire and Valentino.

Bold Chain Necklaces

Although giant neck jewelry was once associated with rapper Flavor Flav’s statement clock, today these head-turning pieces go modern and punk with oversized chain links in heavy metal hues of brushed silver and pewter. Philip Lim and Brandon Maxwell both showed this edgy look in their Spring 2020 collections. Keep it simple or jazz up your chains with medallions and charms. Wear them alone or stack them for dramatic effect. Lucite material takes this look from the club to the boardroom.

Punky Chokers

Chains weren’t the only nod to subculture on this year’s runways. Take your look to the next level with leather chokers adorned with metal and stud accents.

Contemporary Pearls

Pearls get a makeover this season as this preppy staple leans cool and sophisticated. You’ll find this antique-inspired look in unexpected shapes and sizes. Think the magnified pearl necklace and earrings on the Dolce and Gabbana runway or the pearl and chain link choker on display at the Adeam show.

Ear Armor

Inspired by the ear cuffs last spotted in the 90s, this retro look proves that asymmetry is in. Instead of the slender versions of yesteryear, these unique earrings cover most of the ear to create the illusion of space-aged armor. These pieces come in all shapes and sizes, from the black interlocking hoops in the Alexander McQueen collection to Lanvin’s shiny gold foil sleeve.

Dinner Plate Hoops

Hoop earrings are a classic, but the sizes evolve from year to year. For 2020, look for saucer-sized hoops with unique details like tubular construction to set them apart from the crowd. Draw inspiration from the earrings in the spring collections of Carolina Herrara and Proenza Schouler. Zendaya, who currently stars in the HBO series Euphoria, even included a set of big hoops in her sought-after collab with Tommy Hilfiger.

Flirty Tassels

Update your fall and winter look with bohemian appeal by adding earrings and necklaces with colorful tassels. At Yves St. Laurent, the tassel earrings got some extra oomph courtesy of delicate bead embellishment, while other designers modernized this look with a pop of Crayola color.

Sustainable Materials

Stella McCartney’s paper-clip tassels aren’t just a nod to your homemade middle school accessories; they represent the designer’s commitment to using recycled green materials in her collections. She also included rubber bands and bits of yarn for a collection that’s more haute couture than art class. Lanvin showed wood items that let you wear an affinity for nature and look incredible.

The Top Colors To Watch for in 2020

Are you tired of using the same color palette in your living space, wardrobe, or artwork? Brighten up! The year 2020 has inspiring tones for you to integrate into your lifestyle and personal expression. These are a few of the colors to keep your eye on.

Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe Orange Melon Sliced in Half on Pastel Background.

Cantaloupes are juicy, sweet melons in season during the summer. The fruit flesh can range from light to deep orange depending on its level of ripeness. The cantaloupe color swatch is a full and creamy orange that is similar to dark peach or soft orange sherbet. It creates a fresh, uplifting mood.

Cassis

Pink and purple hues have been in vogue for a while, and cassis brings the best of both worlds together. This combination of pink and purple resembles a richer, more violet mauve. Its gender-neutral quality makes it appealing to almost everyone. This versatile hue can be both classy and contemporary.

Mellow Yellow

If you want an earthy, dusky tone, then mellow yellow is the way to go. It’s a retro color coming back into style. Its robust appearance makes it an edgier, more sophisticated choice than a traditional sunny yellow or hot neon.

Neo-Mint

Mint is nothing new and has been a favorite for quite a few years now. Neo-mint takes it to another level with a greener, less-subdued tint that hints at optimism for the future. It’s a modern twist on a classic pastel.

Purist Blue

Blue is arguably the most popular color in the world. Purist blue will be the one to stand out in 2020. It has a coolness and softness to it with a touch of grayish teal undertone. Expect to experience relaxation and clarity in the presence of this color.

Behr’s Color of the Year

Organizations that revolve around color like to announce their own pick of the year. Behr, the paint company, has already shared its selection for 2020: Back to Nature, a gentle green you would find on a walk through the woods. The rest of the colors in next year’s collection also follow the nature theme.

How To Incorporate These Colors

Trending colors are most often seen in clothing and wall paint, but there are numerous other ways to use them in your life. You can be big and bold or small and subtle in your approach. Try out some of these ideas:

Home décor: Furniture, accent rugs, linens, flowers, throw pillows, curtains, books, lamps
Exterior decor: Doors, trim, planters, wreaths
Accessories: Jewelry, belts, bags, wallets, luggage, cellphone cases
Artwork: Pottery, paintings, photography

The best part about these colors is they complement each other, so you can mix and match them. No need to choose just one!

Why Color Matters

Why is so much thought put into creating a color palette each year? The simple answer is that color influences the world. A specific tone can sway your mood and affect your behaviors. While everyone has a unique response, certain colors generally tend to elicit certain reactions. For example, blue is calming, whereas red is invigorating. Color is a way not only to experience but also express emotion.

Having a new trend every year adds variety and excitement. It reflects current culture and events, as well as local geography. What is popular in one country will be different than what is trending in another part of the world. The same goes for industry: The color in demand for women’s fashion may differ from the reigning tone in nursery décor. Focus on the color that best matches your purpose and needs.

Unique Home Decor Trends of 2020

Another year, another trend in home decor. Whether you’re in the interior design biz or are just HGTV junkies like us, get ready to get inspired by these 10 unique home decor trends set to take over the market in 2020.

1. Loft Style Interior

Loft interior with open living room and simple home office

Gaining popularity in American urban living spaces and eventually spreading to Europe, this trend has been a favorite for a number of years. But in 2020, this “industrial grandeur-meets-chic minimalism” trend will extend from urban areas and move to, well, any space. Gone are the days of having to house hunt for the perfect loft in the city. Instead, bring the city to you with brick walls, exposed ceilings, and aesthetically-pleasing decor placement.

 

2. Eco Style

Let’s face it: As a society, we really don’t get out that much anymore. With our 9-to-5s, swinging by the gym, picking up kiddos from daycare, and grabbing dinner with friends, there’s not always time to hit up the local park. While being outdoors in nature is highly encouraged, bringing nature indoors is the next best thing. In 2020, we’ll see a lot of faux (and real) foliage, indoor vertical gardens (more on that in a bit), bamboo, wooden branches, and other environmentally-friendly decor that makes you feel like you’re in the great outdoors while you binge that new season on Netflix.

 

3. Chalkboard Decor

Chalkboards have a sort of nostalgic magic about them. While they’ve been popular in recent years as chalk painted accent walls, they will continue to be a focal point of design and decor in the upcoming year. What’s so great about them? For one, you can consistently create a new look on the surface itself – so if you’re the indecisive type, this might be your thing. Want to try something different? Paint a wall with chalkboard paint and hang a collage of empty ornate frames for an artistic piece you and your guests will enjoy time and time again.

 

4. Neon

Hello ’80s! Pops of color have always been a thing, but in 2020, it’s okay to get loud, bold, and obnoxious with those colors. (I mean, you do you!) Experiment with neon shades in furniture, frames, and drapery for a candy-colored blast from the past with a modern twist. Be sure to ground the look with a neutral pallet like greys, beiges, and creams.

 

5. Contemporary Fireplaces

While classic fireplaces are still 100% super charming (who doesn’t love a good mantle display?), the rise of more modern styles will have their heyday in 2020. Sleek, clean lines, and efficient designs are all the rage, especially with the continued popularity of overall modern decor styles. Expect to see more built in fireplaces without the tile, stone, or brick work supporting the design.

 

6. Geometric Wall Paint

Picasso, who? Don’t settle for just one boring flat wall color. Instead, use painters tape to design a geometrical mural for visual interest. You can find inspiration for this nearly everywhere: stained glass windows, greenhouse ceilings, desk decor, and even some skyscrapers. What ever type of design you create, it’s sure to look fresh and futuristic.

 

7. Vertical Gardens

Not everyone has the luxury of having space for an outdoor garden. Especially in urban areas, indoor vertical gardens are becoming quite the trend, particularly for low maintenance plants like herbs, mother-in-law’s tongue, aloe vera, and more. Of course, positioning the vertical garden is crucial for success, so depending on what you’re growing, you’ll need to place it so that it gets adequate sunlight.

 

8. Bold Print Wallpaper

When someone mentions wallpaper, do you immediately picture that faded yellow floral print from the eighties in your great aunt’s house? Think again. Nowadays, it’s common to see young homeowners freshening up their space with bold printed wallpaper designs: anything from vintage fleur de lis, colorful palm tree branches, and colorful geometric shapes. Pick your poison and remember, if you end up with extra wallpaper, don’t let it go to waste! Instead, cut out a rectangle and frame it for a unique – and cohesive – art piece.

 

9. Cacti

Modernly designed flat interior with cacti

You don’t have to live in the southwestern United States to surround yourself with desert-influenced decor. Check out any home decor or craft store, and you’ll see 2020 is all about bringing the desert to you with real and faux cacti, cacti paintings, and even cacti printed rugs, pillows, and throws.

 

10. Yarn Wall Art

Boho chic has been a trend for a while, but we think it’s making a huge comeback in the form of yarn wall art – especially macrame. (Need inspiration? Check out our selection of trendy macrame projects.) Not only are these pieces fun and relatively affordable to make, but it’s something that will continuously add visual appeal to a space.

 

BONUS: Lilac, Mustard Yellow

What are the power colors for next year in interior design? While not quite the duo we’d automatically pair, mustard yellow and lilac have a springy and an almost 1906s mod fashion feel. How do you incorporate these two very different colors? Play around with table cloth colors and placemats or hang breezy yellow curtains against lilac colored sofa covers.
