Sizzling Hot Jewelry Trends for Summer 2013

As far as the world’s most prestigious designers are concerned, jewelry trends in 2013 are all about having fun. Many of the trends are versatile; some elements can be subtle and work-appropriate, while other elements can be bold enough for night life. The biggest trends come from nature, 2013 blockbusters and distant places and cultures. This summer, there truly is something for everyone and every outfit!

Art Deco/ Vintage

2013 marks the release of Baz Lurhmann’s movie remake of “The Great Gatsby,” so vintage and art deco pieces will definitely be hot this summer. With those influences in mind, statement pieces with intricate geometric shapes are in. It will be a lot easier to find contrasting white and black jewelry – another 2013 jewelry trend – in vintage and art deco styles. Vintage aficionados can also look for pearls and subtle drop earrings for chic pieces with a vintage flair; both pearls and subtle drop earrings will be à la mode in summer 2013. Lace, another 2013 fashion trend, screams old glamour without being overpowering. The most important thing to remember is that vintage accessories and vintage clothing do not work together. Mixing modern clothing with vintage jewelry accessories is the easiest way to avoid looking like you are wearing a costume.

PANTONE named emerald as their color of the year. If you feel like you need some emerald inspiration, then the 2013 release of “Oz: The Great and Powerful” and Emerald City might help. This versatile color goes well with every skin tone, and it also emits an extremely classic and sophisticated vibe that can dress up just about any outfit. Smaller pieces of emerald jewelry might be more daytime appropriate, as emerald can sometimes be so casual that it can be worn with jeans and a tee shirt. Larger pieces can be reserved for classier evening events.

Chinoiserie, or jewelry with a distinctly Asian style, is definitely trendy for summer 2013. You can expect to see Asian-inspired pieces that use motifs from nature that are commonly associated with various parts of Asia, including bamboo leaves and trees and cherry blossoms. The jade stone is also a common element in Chinoiserie jewelry. Another hallmark of Chinoiserie jewelry is the use of tassels. While snake jewelry is not exclusive to Chinoiserie jewelry, there will be many more such pieces out this year, as according to the Chinese calendar, 2013 is the year of the snake. With snake collections becoming so popular, e.g. Bulgari’s Serpentini collection, snake-inspired jewelry will be nothing but hot in summer 2013!

Ethnic and Tribal
Ethnic and tribal jewelry are definitely back again in 2013. African-inspired jewelry will definitely be trendy throughout the year, as will Caribbean-influenced pieces. It seems that ethnic jewelry has gone more glam in 2013; you’ll see a lot of pieces with crystals and studs. Just remember, however, that the jewelry should always accent the outfit. Pairing ethnic and tribal jewelry pieces with solid colors, e.g. black and white, creates an effortlessly chic look.

Southwest jewelry will be scorching hot in summer 2013. If you thought that silver wasn’t a good summer color, then think again. Chunky silver jewelry with American Indian motifs is totally in this year, as are turquoise stones and feathers. Do not be afraid to go bold with your Southwest jewelry, e.g. Dannijo’s large chokers and breastplate necklaces. Fortunately, Southwest jewelry looks stunning next to popular summer colors, e.g. corals, oranges, yellows and reds. You can’t go wrong pairing Southwest jewelry with a flowy white tee shirt and denim.

Animal Prints and Patterns

The catwalk this summer season literally looks like it was made for cheetahs, zebras and giraffes. Most of the hot designers love incorporating animal prints and patterns in their collections. It can feel intimidating to walk out with an animal print as your focal garment, so you can pull inspiration by incorporating the same animal prints and patterns into your jewelry. An easier and more wearable alternative is to accent your outfit with these same patterns and prints. Jewelry with animal prints and patterns can easily dress up or dress down an outfit, and generally work best with solids. Black and white will be hot 2013 summer trends. Bolder looks can pair the patterns with one of the highlighter colors that will be in vogue in 2013, e.g. neon yellow and fuchsia. Animal prints can also give softer and more romantic looks with pastels – another 2013 fashion summer trend – a dash of the wild side.
