Whether you’re having a staycation this summer or are escaping in your mind, one of this spring’s hottest jewelry trends will match your vacation mindset.
Colorful beaded jewelry is going to be everywhere this year. But these aren’t the beaded pieces that you made in elementary school for fun.
The beaded jewelry of today is playful, unique and full of unexpected details. Whether you opt for a cohesive look with beads all the same color or go for pieces a bit more eclectic, beaded jewelry is effortlessly cool and perfect for the summer.
From wooden to ceramic beads to millefiori glass, these multicolored looks feature all types of materials, too. And while pearls, gemstones and precious metals are staples in any jewelry wardrobe, beaded styles are also great for layering. So if you like to mix and match, you’ll love this trend.
Layer a few necklaces over your go-to little white dress, or pile on a bunch of bracelets to amp up a casual look. With beaded jewelry, you really can’t go wrong with your pairings. It’s also a fun way to dress up simple outfits or even swimwear.
