Few will doubt that summer is the perfect opportunity to show off your unique style. The season offers all you need to take advantage of the boldest and craziest trends that fashion has come up with during the year, which is especially true when it comes to accessories. Indeed, if you are looking for ways to make a statement without investing in a brand new wardrobe full of short-lived trendy things that you’ll only have a vague chance of reusing next summer, you should consider accessories as the perfect vessel for your sense of style.
In this article, Enibbana helps you navigate the festive market of 2021 summer trends in accessories to make sure you shine this season. Just in case you are wondering whether the word “shine” here is a way of hinting, here’s a little spoiler: expect some shining detail, but not too much. Here are five irresistible trends for you to try in the summer of 2021.
We could say all things chunky just as well. While the previous season was mostly masked by relatively modest chokers, this summer, people appear to be hungry for something catchier. The neck and/or chest is a great part of the body to showcase your idea of style as it proves a lot of room, and when we say “a lot” this summer, we mean an awfully exciting lot.
Oversized chains have become one of the most overwhelmingly popular trends on runways as well as on the streets. Made of countless giant links in silver, gold, and other metals with few, if any, rules regarding color, these are much prized for their beautiful reflection, making them the best solution to liven up an otherwise dull outfit on a sunny day. This might be the only perfect accessory to invest in since it’s very visibly present. It mixes well with classic clothes and hot trendy pieces alike, too.
For those not prepared to wear something that colossal around their neck, the long-lived layering trend remains a great venue for an experiment. Try combining shorter, delicate necklaces with statement pieces. The number of stunningly different looks you can get this way will surprise you!
Sunglasses are much more than a trendy accessory because they help us stay comfortable on a sunny day. Yet, there’s nothing to prevent you from using the need for eye protection as a clever pretext for standing out. Try playing with the shape of your sunglasses to enhance the weird yet captivating geometry that the mask lends to your face, or go for a time-tried style to add just a little bit of shine to your everyday look. Just imagine the variety of colors to explore! There are literally no rules when it comes to sunglasses as long as they make your eyes shine.
This summer is all about the glitz. Earrings are a great way of adding an extra dimension to your look without stepping out of your comfort zone in terms of color and texture. Choose whichever shape and material you like, but remember to aim for something big.
For those who have fallen for the minimalist trend, single earrings can be a powerful diversity tool. A pair of equally huge, eye-catching ear ornaments might look overwhelming, but the moment you decide to leave one, the look receives the subtly off quality that can make your monochrome outfit so much edgier.
In case you find yourself in a festive mood, though, don’t be shy to try on all kinds of color pop earrings that look a bit like teenagers’ jewelry or have a boho flair about them. You’ll find a lot of ridiculously cute daisy designs, jelly models, and highly reflective options to choose from.
We are all used to wearing scarves around our necks, but what about our heads? It looks like designers have been looking at vintage fashion examples for inspiration, trying to bring out the genuine, inborn elegance of every wearer in the context of today’s bold yet comfy wardrobes.
There are countless ways to wear a hair scarf, just like the number of possible colors and patterns is all but infinite. They have a more down-to-earth advantage, too. A quality silk model will keep you cool on a hot day and hold your hair together so it doesn’t interfere with whatever you are doing.
Remember the layering trend we mentioned above? This applies to rings as well. If you want to showcase your extraordinary collection by wearing a sizable part of it at the same time, just go ahead. Less is more seems to be a dated rule this summer.
The hottest trends in combining multiple rings on the same hand include those made of gold with translucent gems (fakes are fine, too) to create a beachy mood and child-like chunky jelly rings and those made of clay for an occasional pop of color. Both go well with fashionable beaded necklaces and ones with seashells, so don’t be shy to take advantage of both trends at the same time.
It seems like this summer is going to be all about showing off the part of you that knows how to celebrate life. Being too conscious of what others might think is definitely out of fashion. Designers have been experimenting with some of the craziest accessory trends in the past to bring us designs that are highly wearable and a ton of fun at the same time.
You can stick to all-time classics to create a pronouncedly feminine look with an intricate scarf draped over your hair or unleash your creativity with teenage-like and even childish details, ranging from 90s-style jelly rings to all things beads and a lot to explore in between. Whichever you choose, expect to turn heads, for this season’s fashion trends are all about adding zest to our everyday life just in case it gets boring.
