Met Gala 2015 Jewelry Trends

Lights! Camera! Fashion! The jewelry and fashion worlds collided this past Monday at the 2015 Met gala, Christening the Costume Institute’s China: Through the Looking Glass fashion exhibition. From Beyonce’s full frontal crystal adorned ‘gown’ to SJP’s (Sarah Jessica Parker) flame throwing headdress, this ball seemed more like a nudist colony-meets-offensively-tacky-Chinese New Year bash. Did Ms. Wintour mistaken you for one of the Real Housewives of New York and turn down your $100K request to buy a table? Well, that makes two of us. But no worries, we’ve got you covered on the top jewelry trends from fashion’s biggest Superbowl soiree…

Power Bangles & Bracelets

While blingy rings and statement pendants seemed to be a thing from this past red carpet season, sparkly arm parties were a hot ticket item at the ball. SJP rocked a bunch of boho-style bangles while good ol’ Katie Holmes played it safe with an icy trail of sparklers igniting her wrist and refining her look.

Chokers

Everyone’s favorite ’90s throwback was practically a red carpet prerequisite. Chloe Moretz, Selena Gomez and the like, seemed to be sporting delicate black chokers. Even for super A-lists like Rihanna who trailed along in a breathtaking fur-trimmed sun yellow cape, chokers were the perfect way to illuminate her neckline, finishing off her dramatic look with a delicate sparkle.

Drops

Tasseled drops were a fave amongst Bee Shaffer and Lizzy Caplan. While drops may be a great way to draw attention to one’s face, it’s the wispy movement and structure of their tasseled cousin that adds an extra dose of glitz and glamor.

Matching Bling

Matching earrings are a must, which Amal and Solange proved like no other! Both chose to wear more avant-garde and edgier designs which is why chic jewels were the perfect fit for what could have been one potential style conundrum.

Top Color: Red

We LOVED the red trend especially on Helen!  With her laser cut-out gown and medallion drops, Helen Mirren slayed the scene in this incredible color. Mirren’s look was the perfect balance of Haute Couture without overbearing.

Sheer Dresses

Even with Rihanna’s never ending silk trail and other fashion spectacles, the sheer drama were in those see-through ankle scrapers worn by JLo, Kim Kardashian West and Beyonce. The good thing about wearing next to nothing and being decked in crystals is, no need to wear jewelry right? Was it too much or too little? You vote!

Perk Up Your Fall/Winter Woe-drobe

Winter is well on its way, and if those cozy scarf, boot and sweater combos you’ve been rocking since September feel a little basic, well then we’ve got some jewelry-infused styling options for you! Perk up your work-to-weekend wardrobe with our short, sweet and chic style guide of jewelry classics guaranteed to update your everyday look.

1. Thoroughly Modernista

If monochromes and neutrals are your fail-safe de rigueur, then try this winning combination (see above). Mix up your black-and-white basics with a matching necklace to add an edge of graphic intrigue – but without looking like a mangled Picasso. To soften up the severity of this graphic tableau, add a richly colored ring or bracelet and try pairing this with a matching bag or set of heels. In these cold weather months, sleek elegantly-draped vests or coats add polish to your look and make this as an evening appropriate option for any dressy afterwork occasions. Simply mad about the drops and necklace? Look no further than Zoccai 925. Handcrafted and streamlined in design, this Italian jewelry aficionado is renowned for their bold gemstones and flawless craftsmanship packed with a flirty/feminine intrigue.

2. Jewel-Toned Jezebel

Got color? Donning yourself in dark tones can get depressing which is why jewel tones, like a deep dark teal or lush bordeaux, are an easy way to amp up your ensembles. Splash a bit of mocha into this mix with a boot or bag for a perfectly balanced finish. But don’t leave your house without some sparklers or a bangle for the complete look. Pastel and soft neutral-toned jewelry break up this saturated color scheme and are a sleek way to draw attention to your neckline. Love the bangles and drops? So do we! Cristina Sabatini is the name to take note of in this jewel-toned mix, known for her globe-trotting glamour and boldly colored aesthetic.

3. Vintage Diva

Channel a bit of Old Hollywood glamor with this ultra sophisticated silhouette. Start off with a crisp pair of dark denim jeans. A skinny or body-skimming pair is great if you choose to wear a bulky fur or faux fur jacket or vest. Next, dressy flats keep your look casual while maintaining polish. A silky soft white, neutral or pastel top or even a sleek tee keep your look modern. A brooch and a pair of earrings or a cocktail ring are just as imperative as is the fur. Crystalline gems with pearls in white gold or sterling silver, like the set above, are a faultlessly elegant option to perfecting your inner Audrey. For vintage inspired that is always on point, we love Van Kempen (featured above) for its timeless craftsmanship and decorous design.
