Jewellery trends that stole the show in 2018

The year is coming to a close, and it’s time to recapitulate the phenomenal trends that dominated the highlight reel. The entire year revolved around the individualistic nature of women as well as what they aspire to be. The latter half of the year particularly consolidated four fashionable pillars. The AW Macro trends roared on the bases of women’s personalities like confidence, vulnerability , sophistication, or elegance among others, different reactions emerging from the movements like "me too" etc.

The Big Bang: The trend represented the ‘Ideal woman’ – the quintessential independent, confident, and fearless woman who imbued empowerment. One who is undeterred by anything on the face of this earth; an epitome of strength.

Cocoon: A complete contrast to the big bang, the trend catered to the women who wanted to feel protected. They would layer themselves up as a symbol of protection from any threats or any negative influences.

Madame: Derived from an exemplary classy, elegant, and sophisticated lady who would always stay spic and span, prim and proper! The most feminine women who would never fail to dot their i’s and cross their t’s.

Nostalgia: This fourth pillar was more about a feeling rather than a personality trait. It was about women simply refusing to accept the present, rather wishing to travel back in time to relive the 70s through fashion. It was hence about reminiscing ‘the old days’.

These pillars gave way for a handful of global fashion trends that were beautifully complemented with equally fashionable jewellery.

White Edge: The trend was adopted by the powerful yet a feminine woman. The pant-suit combination was the preferred attire which induced an opinionated social message of women empowerment. Hence, the Sumer-Spring trend was predominately about white suiting that displayed power and panache. This was invariably complemented with minimalistic yet edgy jewellery in gold with sophisticated white enamel work.

Fringe Shimmer: A choice of attire that lasted throughout the year that implied fun, movement, and individuality in varying degrees. Hence, they were perfect for festive occasions and cocktail parties. Apart from fringe jewellery, the swishy effect offered by the long and soft threads of tassel earrings very much complimented this style.

Flower Bouquet: Floral attires that were feminine yet colourful became the go-to chic option for fashionable women. Floral shirts and tees were matched with light coloured denims and sneakers to offer a more casual look. On the other hand, similar floral designs offered a different dimension when used for dresses; a mainstay in spring. The trend was interpreted in multi-hued enamel floral jewellery.

Disco Sequin: The classic disco style of the 60s became a wardrobe staple. The dials of the clock were initially rewound to 2015; however there was break the next year. The trend saw a comeback in 2017 in different avatars becoming a must-have look for the modern woman. Sequin thus inspired addition of bling with gold jewellery dedicated for day as well as evening wear.  

Animal Print: The focus on preserving nature and wildlife was displayed in fabric prints. The fall trend headlined various fashion shows to transpose tiger and leopards to the urban jungle. They were complemented beautifully with bold and colourful gemstones, earrings, bangles, as well as necklaces.

Though the year is almost over, the fashion and jewellery world has given us lots to savour. Bold is beautiful wasn’t the only norm; versatility, colour, and print took the world by storm!
