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.
