What’s hot and what’s not. The big trends in jewelry? Perhaps the revival of the brooch. Or that back to the eighties look with chunky plastic looking earring? Come and see it all!
I always adore to do the trend blogs. To see what’s hot this season I look at the shops, the many fashion websites, the magazines and trade magazines. I always try to create a kind of funnel. Because there is simply too many trends mentioned and too many sub-trends, if you like, to consider.
Which are worth mentioning and which aren’t? Well, that pick is purely personal. However, I don’t know about you, but I kind of see the same trends of last year, passing by. Is it the lack of imagination of our beloved fashion designers? Or is it, that people do not wish to be blown away every single season with a complete new theme, whilst they just finished paying for last season’s pieces? Is it perhaps a trend that we enjoy our clothing for a longer time? I know, you and I did that already. But if you are a fashionista, I can imagine how hard and almost impossible it must have been, to keep up with all those changing themes.
Personally, I love to update a look with accessories. Every look can be changed by simply adding jewelry, a hat, a new coat or this season’s ponchos, those lovely new shoes and so on. These are the biggest trends in fashion, bags, shoes and jewelry as seen on the catwalks. What is your personal favorite? Scroll down to see mine :-)♥

What did stand out for you? Was it the eclectic Bohemian look or the Glam Granny? Or you are kind of a Goth at heart and love that mysterious Dark Side look? And what jewelry spoke to you? For me, as soon as I read about the eighties getting back into fashion, I had these déjà vu moment. I see the pictures of myself as a teenager, dry big hair, chunky plastic earrings and this bleached denim look ;-) But it's an updated version, the one that we see now. Thank God!
I love the daring big necklaces. But I am thrilled about the brooches getting back into fashion. Soon we will feature a blog about brooches and how to wear them. They are such an interesting piece of jewelry that rather pimps up your clothes instead of your body. And what about these beautiful hair decorations? I think that they are awesome.
My favorite fashionlook has to be the pure and simple one. Although I am slowly but surely getting to dress a little more like a bohemian. As this trend never seems to be really out of fashion, I take my time to adjust my wardrobe! :-)
Hope you had some inspiration and that you feel a little inspired now to update your look with what you have already. Or if you are going to shop, you might have more of an idea for what kind of look you like to go for.
