The news is out, and the results are in. Do It Yourself, DIY trends for the summer of 2022 and beyond are here. From fringe to dangly, bold and bright colors are here. Sparkling drop earrings with multitude of beads, gems, and crystals are all in style.
Last year was minimalism, loungewear and barely there. This year we are breaking out the colors, as bright as possible, with chunky jewelry of the 1980s. Silver for summer, gold for fall are the metals of choice. Yet you can mix and match metals as well. Your set your own style and mix it up, with gold for summer and silver for fall and winter. Your choice to decided what looks best on you.
Statement pieces that catch the eye to the neck, wrist, or ear are the pieces of choice. Mixed media is not just for paintings, it is also for jewelry.
Chains, either delicate or chunky, adorn the necks and wrists. Mixing it up, adding some fringe, and making the jewelry statement your own is the way to go this summer.
Looking at the colors, I see everything from neon bright to jeweled tones, pastels of turquoise, green and pinks or peach colors. Mixing metal with beads and layering necklaces, charms on necklaces and bracelets are all popular.
And funky and fun pieces are also out there, truly making for a spectacular summer this year.
