Jewelry + Bridal Accessory Trends 2011

As accessories goes, a trendy piece of jewelry can immediately make any drab and boring outfit into an eye catching and chic one. Fashion jewelry trends 2011 forecasts that jewelry will be bigger and bolder. In general, the hottest new trends in jewelry are big and bold. The most popular colors will be earth colors, such as grays, blacks and browns. These will be pieces that remind us of nature and go well with any outfit. Popular colors for the fall and winter months are silver, black, copper, brown, and all shades of jewel tones. Turquoise blue, eggplant purple, deep fuchsia, emerald green are all shades you start seeing in clothing and jewelry as the summer cloths come off the store shelves and fall fashions make their appearance.

 Because classic rhinestone brooches were so popular in the 1960’s, you can often find them at vintage stores (but snatch them up quick because of their recent rise in popularity). The modern versions are usually a combination of colored pearls, cut gems and rhinestones.
Ribbons: Though not so popular in the 1960’s, ribbons are being used with pearls, rhinestones and cut gems to gather multi-strand necklaces, serve in place of a necklace clasp and accent earrings and brooches.

 2011 predicts that bangles and cuffs will be very popular. But just don’t wear a single bangle or cuff. You need to stack them up for a chic and casual look. The best thing about wearing stacked bangles is that you can pair them with anything from sundresses to skinny jeans. This look was seen on many celebrities from Drew Barrymore to Sarah Jessica Parker. Create your own unique look by stacking different colored bangles in a mix of metals. Chunkier cuffs are also very popular this season and you can choose cuffs that comes in semi precious stones, leather and even plastic. Handcrafted cuffs with unusual texture in dull gold and rose finish can instantly make you look sophisticated and chic. The thing to remember while trying out this trend is to wear at least 12-15 bangles. They should also be of different colors and designs to give it a more eclectic look.

Since earrings reside in the prime real estate surrounding your face, they can really influence your overall look. The trendy bridal earrings for 2011 exude vintage elegance in an array of pearls, crystals and jewels. Elaborate stud earrings are in fashion and complement a variety of wedding gown styles. Tiered dangling earrings in jewel-tones are also popular and look great with simple gowns with high necklines and up-do hairstyles. Bracelets are one of those finicky accessories that fade in and out of fashion but don’t worry, this year they are definitely in. 2011 bridal bracelets are all about multiple strands. Designs with twisted strands of crystals and pearls are popular accented by touches of rich jewel-tones.
