Today we look at two more fashion trends for this fall and winter. The sixties have found their way to our fashionable hearts again and Think Big stands for oversized coats and sweaters and knitwear.Video of Aurelie Bidermann, lovely example of 60's inspired jewelry
Ring with Jade: Kara Ross, Bangles is all colors: Miriam Salat, a 60's ad for Monet, the icon of the sixties: Twiggy and red hot lips by London based designer: Solange Azagury-Partridge
I believe that some trends are just never really out of fashion for very long. The sixties are immediately associated in our hearts and minds with hippie and Carnaby Street at the same time. This year it is not so much the hippie but swinging London that inspired this fashion trend. Think Twiggy, Vidal Sassoon, Mary Quant. A-line short dresses with patterns and colors that bring you right back to this exciting period of time.
How to combine this style with jewelry? Well, there are bangles in all shapes and colors, but preferably wear the large and colorful ones, they just match this trend very well. Also some fun designs like those of Solange Azagury-Partridge work great with this style. There are many different styles that suit this trend. Swing and be cheerful, the whisper of hope of the sixties is reflected in bold design, the naïve attitude of many young people at the time can be found in the use of colors and the love for experimenting in the various forms and patterns.
Bangles with 60's motives: Hermès, very funny bracelet with phonenumbers:Yaz Bukey, bold golden with diamonds necklace by Martha O'Brien, and the colorful necklace is by William de Lillo
One of the most comfy looks of the season. You can easily relax that tummy ( works for me!) and hide it underneath piles of wonderful fabric. Knitwear is big this season. Although woolen knitted pants look very uncomfortable to me, this trend easily connects with the Sporty Spice in the Lockerroom trend, by combining it with sneakers. Oh yes, sneakers. My newest fashion indulgence, love them! Once you get used to wearing such comfortable footwear, it becomes really hard to put on heels again. The sheer pain that always hits you in the face after a while, just does not seem to be so alluring anymore :-)
Big earrings look great with oversized clothes. Wear no other jewelry if you can prevent it: Dolce & Gabbana catwalk show showing big earrings and the celebs have always known how to wear them. Kim Cattrall, Paris Hilton, Tyra Banks, Byonce ( the blonde celeb is wearing stunning earrings, but I have no idea who she is!), Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara (I LOVE Modern Family) and another beautiful celeb with stunning earrings that I do not know.
Big clothing asks for not much jewelry, but it better be just as present. Big earrings look great with big coats and sweaters. When you wear big earrings, I would recommend to wear only those. Maybe a huge ring, but definitely no necklace. The sixties style bangles are just as matching with this trend. Long and / or bold necklaces and pendants will work great. This style asks a lot of less is more thinking. Small cute jewelry simply disappears when combined with oversized clothing. So go for big or nothing at all.
Etsy can be a great source for *different* jewelry: YaelKeilasagri, Earrings by Italian company: Leaderline, more Etsy from Milijewelries, Big pendant/brooche by Kenneth Jay Lane, a perfect example of wearing long chains, More Etsy from Dutch designer JewellerybyPetra and an image of the big trend: wide oversized coats.
This trend looks great with the Mix & Crafts trend too. Wooden necklaces, ethnical jewelry and artistic bold designs are the best jewelry to wear with the Think Big fashion trend.
For your inspiration: some oversized clothing and jewelry.
