3 Must-Have Jewelry Trends to Try this Summer

At ALEX AND ANI, the Summer Collection embodies a boho-beach vibe that inspires a carefree spirit. It mixes natural elements with pops of color and seashore symbolism to create eclectic, effortless, and Insta-worthy styling moments for you to try all summer long. Check out our list of top summer jewelry trends today!

TRENDS TO TRY #1: FOOT FASHION

 

We’ve upgraded to modern-day anklets with a chic twist that can be worn all year long – to the beach and beyond. While natural, organic shell styles still reign, we have modernized this popular trend to include other materials like crystals, opalized finishes, and delicate chains. Discover neutral, sandy hues with Mother of Pearl beads, sandy-colored stones, and gold ocean-inspired charms. 

 

FOOT FASHION STYLING TIP 1: Mix Bold & Subtle

If you’re a minimalist, start out with one summer anklet that is either super dainty or a more statement style. This will give your look an effortless vibe without looking too flashy. Balance your statement anklet with a ‘barely there’ neutral-colored sandal for a summer jewelry trend that we cannot get enough of.

 

FOOT FASHION STYLING TIP 2: Channel Your Inner Child

Channel your inner child and relive the good ole days by bringing back those colorful beaded anklets you once wore as a kid. Happy feet will lift your mood when you wear every color of the rainbow!

You don’t need a pair of sandals or shorts to rock the anklet summer jewelry trend! If sneakers and jeans are more your speed, offset your colorful rainbow anklets with your favorite pair of Reeboks and Levis.

FOOT FASHION STYLING TIP 3: Mix & Match Layers + Finishes

Add a snazzy touch to your summer ankles and rings and play with layers, just like you would your wrist and fingers. If you’re worried about coming off overly trendy, consider sticking to neutrals for your attire with a cropped, wide-legged linen pant.

Take your summer jewelry trend accessorizing game to the next level by polishing off your foot style with sea-inspired toe rings. Your feet will thank you.

TRENDS TO TRY #2: COLOR

Colorful trends originate from the Instagram culture of encouraging designs to be eye-catching, statement-making, and photo-worthy. We reflect this sentiment through explosive colors like pastels, neons, and bold primaries combined with lustrous, glittery, and glitzy finishes.

If you tend to stick with silver or gold, time to break out of your comfort zone and experiment with some color! Get inspired by our playful palette that evokes warm weather and brighter days.

COLOR STYLING TIP 1: ALL THE BLUES!

Invoke the spirit of the sea in calming hues of blue. Check out sapphire earrings, azure rings, and sky blue bracelets to capture the feelings of summer from the horizon onward!

COLOR STYLING TIP 2: CORAL CRUSH!

What colors are more summery than the soft red of watermelon, the chic pink of coral, and the delicate rose of a seashell’s inner lining? Crush your summer jewelry trend goals with earrings and bangles in all these shades.

COLOR STYLING TIP 3: TANGERINE DREAM!

Mix orange and yellow for a refreshing new twist for your wrist. From citrus fruit charms to popsicle hues, we’ve got it all!

TRENDS TO TRY #3: ORGANIC BEADS

We love using natural seashells for our summer jewelry – hand strung on a stretch base. With a variety of shells for a mix of sandy shades, this summer jewelry trend is functional and versatile. It allows for comfort and versatility in styling for the beach and beyond! The beauty of natural shells also gives an organic quality to the colors and shapes of your pieces, imbuing your look with an eclectic vibe and bringing in elements of the ocean.

ORGANIC BEADS STYLING TIP 1: Add a Symbol

Amplify the meaning of your shell style by pairing these pieces with our mermaid jewelry. Then, create a bold summer jewelry trend that’s paired with some of your favorite bangles.
