It’s nostalgia at its finest; colourful beaded jewellery akin to childhood trinkets. This summer the fashion pack will be adoring themselves with this trend, here’s how to get involved.
As the heatwave rolls on, this summer’s most brilliant, smile-inducing jewellery trend is here and it’s a mash up of everything you have loved since childhood. Brightly coloured beads, rainbows, pastels, pearls, shells and even personalisation. With an attitude of ‘the more the merrier’ with these jolly jewellery pieces, we can’t get enough and neither can fashion industry insiders.
For those only willing to dip a toe into the trend, opt for a subtle statement with a single Roxanne Assoulin bracelet and wear it with washed out denim jeans, a t-shirt or sweatshirt and havaianas or dad sandals.
