Guide to Classic: Ladies Jewelry That Will Never Go Out Of Style

Fashion is cyclical, and there is further proof of that. An analysis of the collections of global brands over the past twenty years clearly demonstrates that some of the jewelry we wear in 2022 complemented the images in the shows of previous decades. But not all jewelry has stood the test of time. Today, we’re picking out the most practical jewelry and fashion costume jewelry that will stay with us for a long time and help us create looks.

What jewelry will never go out of style?

  • Solid gold and silver chains;
  • Mixed pearls and metal;
  • Large metal and leather bracelets;
  • Chokers;
  • Cuffs;
  • Brooches from beads and fabric;
  • Pearl necklaces and earrings;
  • Soutoirs;
  • Ethnic Jewelry.

Chains

The chains from the shows of the early 2000s are identical to those worn today. They can be distinguished by their more complex design. The trend for minimalism can be seen not only in clothes but also in jewelry. In 2022, chains are shorter, mixed gold with silver, and even pearls are possible, but four long tiers of thick chains are not worn today. Soon fashion will return medallions, sotuaries on massive long chains, but for now in a trend not gothic, boho and ethnics, but classics and sports. Too simple weaves of chains are not topical today. Chains similar to the household are not in trend.

Mixed pearls and metal

If it seems like you’re the one who came up with the idea of hanging a string of pearls and a metal chain around your neck in 2020, Dolce & Gabbana would argue the point. Only the designers in 2005 didn’t limit themselves to one size pearl, but wove metal into the necklace, pinned brooches, and connected everything with massive carabiners. Chanel’s 2022 collection showed where fashion is heading, namely towards long tiered necklaces with thin chains on which pearls are rarely strung. Many people today will find this solution old-fashioned.

Beaded cords

Beaded cords are not a trend, but many women love to wear them. To make the jewelry not look “woman-like”, you need to combine it with trendy things, for example, with a modern cut pantsuit, but not with colorful blouses and dimensionless dresses.

Kits

Jewelry sets, like beaded cords, are out of fashion, but you shouldn’t throw away such a piece of jewelry. It, like a mink coat, can be incorporated into a modern look. For example, combine it with a cropped top, jacket and jeans or a cardigan and a combi dress.

Large bracelets

Large bracelets are coming back into fashion gradually, they will soon be beloved by fashionistas, but so far it is a micro-trend in the field of jewelry. Never throw away quality massive bracelets, the fashion for them is coming back. In 2022, wear matching bracelets on two hands. You can wear wide bracelets on gloves, and sleeves. If you want to incorporate your old bracelet into a modern look, wear it with jeans and a white shirt.

Necklace with pearls

In 2022, massive necklaces are out of fashion, the jewelry will be expensive, and there’s nowhere in time and space to wear it. But if a necklace contains pearls, it stops smelling like mothballs. This is how you can reanimate an old necklace yourself.

Long earrings

You can’t lump all long earrings together. Long earrings, like jeans, are always relevant, but models can become outdated. It is better to choose long, dressy earrings; one season you wear them with a white t-shirt and jeans, another season you’ll wear them to a company party with a short dress.

Velveteen

Every generation has professed a sincere love for velvets because it’s cheap, playful, sexy jewelry. Velvet can be incorporated into any style, from grunge to gothic. Even with a white shirt, black velvet will look relevant. The jewelry can be short, like a choker, or tied in a bow in front.

Chokers

In 2022, massive chokers with incrustation are topical. Chokers, unlike long jewelry, do not lengthen the neck, but shorten it and draw attention to it.

Necklace with crystals

Don’t complicate the look with a short necklace. In 2022, a necklace is not worn on top of a shirt, it adorns the body, and accentuates the beautiful neckline. A necklace or choker with transparent crystals goes perfectly with leather dresses.

Brooches

A brooch is a complicated piece of jewelry because it is very often associated with old age and antiquity. Many people refer to brooches as badges, which does not increase the attractiveness of the jewelry. To fit a brooch into a modern closet, pair it with masculine suits rather than feminine dresses.

Beaded brooches

Handmade things are trending, today craftsmen can make money on handmade beaded brooches, but you have to work on the design, because the competition is big and a pouty lip brooch won’t surprise anyone.

Hairclips

Fashion is going from simple to complex, for the last ten years women did not do comb-overs on the head, did not pinned bangs with hairpins. Slowly the complicated looks with extra details come back into fashion. While youth is still relevant, but the fashion for old age is not far off.

Jewelry has always tied generations together. Family rings and brooches, diamond necklaces, treasure chests – they tell us that there are things beyond trends and fashion that can always be taken out of the box and proudly worn without any thought of appropriateness.
