2012’s Best Jewelry Looks

As we look back upon the year in style, we would be remiss if we did not take the time to pay homage to the top jewelry trends of the season. While the spring was geared to a classic style, the fall leaned toward the use of natural pieces.

The chocker

2012 was the year of the chocker and the bib necklace. The choker is a great conversation starter for every occasion. Princess Diana once rocked a pearl chocker with a deep blue evening dress. If you are looking for a way to spice up your wardrobe, the choker is the perfect solution. Choose a pear chocker to pair with a black evening gown to be ready for any formal occasion. If you are hitting the town with a group of girlfriends, then look for a metallic chocker to wear over a ribbed turtleneck. Finally, if your attendance has been requested at the office pair a brightly colored chocker with a crisp dress shirt.

Floral Trends

Spring 2012 was all about the floral pattern. It dominated the runways in jewelry and trousers. From the bold pink chocker necklaces to the blingy rose pendants, flowers were everywhere. The floral trend is one of the easiest to incorporate in your wardrobe because of the variety of pieces available and the versatility of style options. Floral jewelry is available in rings, necklaces, and earrings. You can choose to style your look with a collection of pieces or a single piece depending on the occasion and your particular style choices.

Feathered Jewelry

If you want to channel your inner Indian princess, then opt to rock the feathered jewelry trend that surfaced in 2012. As a rule of fashion, everyone should own one out of the box piece of jewelry and the feathered earring is the perfect option. Traits to consider when selecting which feathered earring will look best on you are what color palette makes up the majority of your wardrobe and the shape of your face. Feathers come in every imaginable color and shape so your options are endless. Next, consider the shape of your face. If your face is round then choose a longer feather to provide a slimming look.

2012 was a banner year for jewelry style. Whether you chose to rock a feather or a floral is entirely up to. The only question that remains at the end of the year is what will 2013 bring?
