While some of these pre-spring days we’ve been having are a bit cheerier than others, jewelry trends are all about plowing through the sadder, wintry days and looking forward to all the pretty, spring-festive styles ahead! One prominent trend I’ve been noticing on all the accessory walls and jewelry stands is the eclectic mix of floral patterns and details with layered or braided chains.
I love the contrasting look of the feminine florals and rocker feel of chain details, making it a trend that even gals who typically like to stray from girly flowery prints can try on for size without losing their edgy flair. This silk-tie chain necklace from Old Navy makes a statement with its mixed textures and beading, while the flower embellishments on this Marni necklace is a bit more dramatic and nighttime-appropriate with its black ribbon and brass hardware.
Also, I love how this crocheted daisy necklace from Juliet & Company puts a grown-up spin on the actual daisy chains we used to make as kids during recess! For more subtle accessorizing, these flower chain earrings add a bit more edge to traditional studs, and this braided floral chain bracelet by Aurelie Bidermann is a delicate but pretty summer add-on to any outfit!
