As summer gives way to the gentle winds of monsoon, it is time to give your wardrobe a seasonal upgrade. If the vagaries of the weather have restricted your outfit options, you can always look to your bijoux box for a quick pick-me-up. The perfect finishing touch for any outfit, the right accessories can level up your look in seconds. Which is why, we went scouting for the finest baubles in the jewellery landscape and here are the trends that we discovered:
The Trend: Trends come and trends go, but a classic pair of hoops is for everyone. This season, the silhouette is running oversized—imagine a shoulder-grazing XXL pair that will serve as the perfect foil for a basic white tee and denim duet for those Zoom calls in the AM. Don’t be surprised when those compliments start rolling in.
The Muse: Follow Deepika Padukone’s lead and liven up an all-black look by looping in the largest pair of hoops that you can find.
We Love: Outhouse’s monogrammed hoops that will help you add some logomania to your jewellery kit.
The Trend: With the Y2K hangover refusing to relinquish its hold over the trend charts, it should come as little surprise that the juicy hues of the era have made a comeback as well. This time around, you’ll find vibrant hues of pink, green and yellow popping up on chunky rings and bold silhouettes. No more Monday blues, yes?
The Muse: Not ready to go all out with colours quite just yet? Ananya Panday recommends sliding a pastel ring in between solid golds for a pop of colour on a rainy day.
We Love: With a veritable rainbow of colours available at Misho Designs, your only problem will be trying to choose just one.
The Trend: It would be incorrect to label chain link jewellery as a recent trend because some iteration of this classic has always lived on in jewellery history. If you are looking to keep with the It-girls this season, you will want to loop a few oversized chains around your neck and or reach for standout earrings—bonus points for mixing two trends and giving your chain jewellery a colourful update.
The Muse: Nobody knows how to ace maximalism quite like Malaika Arora Khan who layered every chain link piece in her jewellery box without batting an eyelid.
We Love: Create your own neck stack with Joker & Witch’s pre-layered necklaces.
The Trend: Regardless of the season or the time of the year, evil eye motifs continue to be among the most sought-after jewellery styles. This season’s iteration has received an icy upgrade with sparkling diamonds adding that extra twinkle to the iconic eye. For work, look to dainty pendants and once day turns to dusk, reach for chunky bracelets with graphic motifs.
The Muse: The evil eye makes for a recurring motif in Janhvi Kapoor’s collection, usually layered with dainty necklaces for good measure.
We Love: STAC Fine Jewellery’s evil eye and hamsa hand bracelet will ensure that you attract nothing but good vibes.
The Trend: Even as Bridgerton takes a breather between seasons, its impact on pop culture is unmissable. Fashion’s fascination with Regencycore continues to reign strong, with pearls of all sizes finding favour in the trends spotlight. From unfinished baroque pearl earrings to Blair Waldorf-esque headpieces, choose whatever strikes your fancy.
The Muse: For the bride looking to stand out, it helps to take cues from Rhea Kapoor who eschewed a conventional dupatta in favour of a pearl mesh veil.
We Love: Pipa Bella’s all-pearl hoops that will help you master two trends in one.
