The 9 Fall/Winter jewelry trends we'll be wearing this Fall
The 9 jewelry trends spotted at Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2020-2021
From bold mix and matches in the form of flowing piles of necklaces, pearls and chains to oversized pieces and jewelry belts, next season will be, without a doubt, full of daring jewelry pieces to create the boldest of silhouettes.
1. Bourgeois meets streetwear
Both precious and unexpected, this mix of themes showed itself on the runways this season, made popular by the Comme des Garçons x Mikimoto collaboration, redefining the rules of classic jewelry. This jewelry is part bourgeoise, part streetwear, creating a new, thrilling, hybrid.

2. Jewelry as clothing
What if jewelry become a piece of clothing? This is what many designers did this season when they decided to break the rules by integrating jewels directly into sweaters, dresses and tops as a built-in necklaces or collars. The result? Ultra chic (and not to mention practical) two-in-one, ready-to-wear pieces.

3. Protective talismans
Creating something different this season with a rise in pieces with precious stones and a penchant for crystal healing, jewelry is increasingly associated with lucky charms, to protect its wearers from the outside world. On the runway, this translated as symbols that looked like lucky charms and extra-large stones worn close to the heart, guaranteeing nothing but good vibes.

4. A walk on the wild side
To brighten up your outfit and show your daring side, this season, the wildest of animals appeared as brooches, earrings and necklaces. A trend to (literally) adopt right away.

5. A single statement earring
Say goodbye to discretion and hello to the spectacular. Including pearls, diamonds and pendants, an enticing mix was invited onto the earrings of the season to be worn alone to avoid being too much. The only rule? the bigger, the better.

6. Just the essentials
It had already caught our eye last season with its extra small form and the micro jewelry bag will be back (and smaller than ever) next season. It will be available in colorful versions, as well as in the form of new products, as seen with Givenchy's tailor-made AirPods case.

7. Belted chic
Last season it was the châtelaine, an 18th century jewelry piece that was worn at the waist, which created truly bourgeois silhouettes. Now, the jewelry belt is making its big comeback in a more offbeat way, to add a touch of something different to any monochrome look.

8. Chunky chains
It was impossible to miss them this season. Chains were worn disproportionately wide in the form of choker necklaces and earrings alike, to infuse a touch of streetwear, reminiscent of the classic chain bracelet, to any look.

9. Oversized chokers
Highlighted for decades by the Greek jewelry houses, the torque, a rigid metal necklace which opens at the ends, this season found its place on the runways in the form of both a choker and a necklace. The perfect piece to add an warrior touch to the little black dress or a man's tuxedo.
