Let’s take a closer look at the next two big trends for the upcoming season. A Fairytale drama and Denim on Denim. How much fun is it to dress up one day as somebody out of a little fairytale and the next being all down to earth with denim.
Now Denim on Denim is a trend, but denim is definitely hot this winter. There are some very new items next to the well know trousers made in denim and it’s versatile. Because you can have the total *girl next door*look as well as the *sophisticated woman of the world* look, both by wearing denim.

Denim on Denim is something we saw before. In the ‘80’s we had this acid bleached denim and it was cool to wear as a jacket and jeans. If I look at those pics ( with the big hair) I think now it is an ugly look. And for most of us, who were already young adults, we are not particularly thrilled to see denim on denim. But then again, if I look at those smoldering hot Guess ad’s, I can see how sexy it can be. Definitely way more than in the eighties! :-)

Denim looks great with different styles of jewelry. You can wear gold and it will look beautifully as a contrast to the blue. You cannot go wrong. Silver or white gold might work too, but it makes the whole look a little colder. If that’s what you love you should definitely try to find that combination.

Denim invites you to also play with the whole cowgirl theme. Something I secretly adore! If you do too, then play with gold(plated) pieces with turquoise.

It’s a sporty look when you combine it with the now so very trendy sneakers. You might want to think of combing this with jewelry made with leather, or rope or something very casual and yet sophisticated.

But Denim ultimately loves to reflect its color onto your accessories and so any piece of jewelry with blue stones or blue leather or silk would look just amazing.

The other big trend is A fairytale drama. Lots of dresses and fabrics and imagination running wild. Love this trend very much as it invites you to play. You could either choose to go the full Monty with your clothes and then maybe a smaller piece of jewelry that plays with the theme. But maybe you cannot go so far and just like to add a bit of magic and fairy dust to your jewelry.
Such fun: Alice in Wonderland by N2
There are so many pieces of jewelry that would bring a little bit of that magic to your outfit that it was really hard for me to make a selection. N2 is a Parisian company that has a wide range of fairytale custom jewelry that I adore. It plays with themes and it really shows some humor too. Something that I find very attractive. Prices range from 15 euro till about 150 euro. You can even find it on Zalando.

Of course, the high end jewelry has an enormous collection of magical and dramatic fairytale jewelry. For inspiration you should definitely check out; Solange Azagury Partridge, Lydia Courteille, Dior and Boucheron. There is some cute stuff to be found on Etsy too. Have fun and try to play with the theme with your make-up, accessories, wardrobe and of course: jewelry!
The ultimate fairytale might well be Alice in Wonderland: H. Stern used it to create these fantastic pieces.
Queen of odd and magical almost dark jewelry is Lydia Courteille. These are all by her.
