1. Colorful Jewelry

Forget sticking to gold and silver, designers brought on an explosion of color for Spring 2020’s jewelry. There were bright floral and beaded pieces at Ulla Johnson, gemstones at Brandon Maxwell, and mismatched colors at Marc Jacobs and Ports 1961. Channeling our inner kids, the look is all about having fun with your accessories.

When it comes to color, at least with jewelry, don’t be afraid to mix up your stones and metals. The more mishmash, the easier it is to pair with your wardrobe as it opens up the range of shades to coordinate.


2. The Single Earring

Earrings are going solo next season. The single earring look dominated Spring 2020 runways from Prabal Gurung to Tibi and Marc Jacobs. The key to achieving this look? Go for an earring that’s statement-making enough to stand on its own.

3. Oversized Chains

Chains got bigger and bigger on the spring runways. Brandon Maxwell sent giant sparkling versions (some complete with matching chain earrings) down his runway, while Zimmermann layered oversized chain necklaces with beaded ones.

The key to styling an oversized chain link is to contrast the size with something more delicate like a single diamond necklace.


4. Pearls

Pearls are going strong for Spring 2020. The classic material made appearances in just about every form—from single drop earrings to layered necklaces and even on headpieces at Khaite.

Classic to baroque, what’s new about the pearl trend is the attitude and how you pair it.


5. Big Hoops

Hoop earrings never really left, but get ready to see them multiply in size next season. Proenza sent a crop of power hoops down its runway—thick, gold, and double-hooped for extra measure, while designers like Oscar de la Renta explored the oversized look using different materials.
