Necklaces for 2016
Necklaces for 2016

In the last Sparkling Tip, I detailed the trends and colors in jewelry for this winter. In this piece, I’ll be uncovering the necklaces trending for 2016. Yes, I might be getting a head-start with the news but my Casa Ladies should always look spectacular, and this is achieved when they’re in the know.

After a long time, crystals are back for Spring! We can see an example here in this soft shade of pink featured in a glass pendant on the left, but there’s nothing soft about this edgy piece paired with a strong black cord. We will also find extravagant displays of feathers and flowers in the forecast for an oversized earthy statement, seen here on the right.

Fine detailing in large numbers contributes to the necklaces pictured below, which will teem in popularity, especially that of Stella McCartney’s pearl necklace to the right. What makes it so unique is that’s it is able to mold into different shapes and twists.

While similar necklaces with knots and rockstar coiled chains will not be left behind.

Of course, we will still see the always lovely, understated necklaces carrying a long chain, displayed on the left; though beware, the opposite is also true, and the movement to layer long necklaces into chunky over-the-top bling still makes its mark.

Last but not least, heavy metal bib-necklaces will carry through the season, along with chokers! How’s that for a flashback in this fashion-forecast!
