Here we are once again on the verge of a new year, an exciting time that brings a chance for a fresh start and great anticipation for what might be. When it comes to fashion, this time of year is an opportunity to make some new style choices, or reinforce the established personal style you love and are already known for.
Well-chosen jewelry provides the finishing touch to any outfit. Jewelry has the power to tie a look together, the sparkle to make your look pop, and the beauty to make you stand out. When you find jewelry that suits you and matches your sense of style, it can elevate what might be a somewhat ordinary look to one that is absolutely stunning.
What will be the hottest trends in fashion and jewelry in 2017? Whatever they might be, it’s important to stay true to who you are, while not being afraid to venture out and try new styles if you happen to feel stuck in a ‘style rut’.
To stand out in the year ahead, choosing the right pieces is critical. In this article, we answer the question; vintage or modern… what jewelry should I be buying in 2017?
Some Modern Flair
There is no denying that a person adorned with well-chosen, modern jewelry makes a stunning impression.
Do you like to stay on trend when it comes to your wardrobe? If so, you’ll probably find that you enjoy wearing jewelry that is as fashion-forward as your wardrobe.
Whether jewelry with sleek lines and understated elegance is your preference, or bold designs that make themselves the center of attention is more your speed, contemporary jewelry is ready to deliver on your desires.
A Vintage Look
Do you prefer wearing timeless pieces, rather than taking all your cues from the pages of the latest edition of Vogue when it comes to your wardrobe? If so you might enjoy wearing more vintage inspired jewelry!
From romantic and dainty, to bold, geometric patterned pieces, vintage jewelry transcends time and the insatiable demand of the current fashion cycle. A classic piece is both beautiful and timeless, and provides its wearer with a truly unique look.
If you are looking to stand out in a crowd, you cannot go past the eye-pleasing offerings that vintage and vintage inspired jewelry offers.
The Right Mix
In 1951, Nat King Cole recorded the most popular version of the timeless song ‘Unforgettable’. That sweet melody has stood the test of time and still gets played thousands of times every day. Since then, many other artists have covered the song.
The only cover that rivaled Nat King Cole’s version, was a duet that his daughter, Natalie Cole, recorded 4o years later. What made this duet special was the fact that Natalie Cole overlaid her vocal recordings onto her father’s original. The result was a harmonious blend of both vintage and modern vocal stylings that won the artist three Grammy awards including song of the year.
In 2017, the right look is not going to simply be vintage or modern, it’s going to be vintage and modern. Like Natalie Cole’s 1991 duet, the truly fashion forward in 2017 will be looking to harmoniously blend both modern and vintage jewelry into a single, eye-popping look.
