Big is in – Chunky jewellery is a rage!
Earlier women advocated the dainty look. Tiny and delicate rings, elegant pendants, studs for the ears or teardrop earrings – nothing too loud or flashy. Fashion was all about being understated. This concept has undergone a massive overhaul – women like to be noticed and how!
Neon shades of yellow, pink, purple and orange have replaced the sober pastels of yore, brightly coloured ballerina flats or chunky platform heels and wedges with large flower embellishments have replaced the dainty kitten heeled sandals and large statement rings; cocktails rings, huge danglers and big pendants have overshadowed the dainty jewellery so favoured by women a few years ago.
Oversized jewellery with abstract designs and bright colours are not only being worn by the young women of today, this trend has caught the fancy of older women as well. The style is hippy and fun and looks very good if it is paired with the right ensemble. They add a fun visual element to all outfits and can be paired effortlessly with all kinds of outfits – even formal wear if you are careful about how you go about it.
Such jewellery is easily available and suits all budgets as they are sold everywhere – from high end showrooms to small shops. In fact, the major pro of this style is that it is available. Young women like picking up chunky bracelets, bangles, pendants and earrings to wear with a plain white tee and jeans outfit or A-line tunics and leggings at roadside flea markets without a thought. A note of caution though, like all styles, this one has its own dos and don’ts.
“If you pair a chunky bracelet or earrings with clothing that also has many colours and designs then it doesn’t work – the ensemble just looks confused,” says pretty young thing Mishka, sporting a large owl pendant worn over a pastel tee-shirt. Also, don’t overdo it – wear one chunky piece at a time. If you team a chunky bracelet with over sized earrings and a large pendant, chances are that you will end up looking like a veritable fashion disaster.
So go ahead, add some panache to your outfit!
