Seize any opportunity to look nice, even if it’s just for a Zoom meeting.

We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but working from home has indeed become the new normal. In fact, it has even sparked an influx of loungewear designs consisting of comfortable yet chic sweatpants and tops for you to look ‘decent’ for your zoom calls and video meetings.

Sure, you can put on the most fashionable-looking pyjama jacket or a silk satin robe, but accessories can truly bring your comfortable pieces – chic as they are – to another level of style.

To embrace that, we’ve rounded up five jewellery trends of Spring/Summer 2020 that will serve as inspiration for you.

Oversized chains

Whether you’re dressed up or down, chain-link necklaces will automatically be the statement piece in your look. We’re not talking about dainty gold ones — these are chunky pieces that may look heavy on the neckline. We’ve spotted these pieces on Bottega Venetta, Brandon Maxwell, Chanel and so many more.

XXL hoops

One of the biggest – literally – jewellery trend of SS20 is not just regular hoops but XXL versions. Hoops may have already existed decades ago, but designers recently introduced super-sized versions of them. Proenza Schouler, Versace and BOSS, just to name a few, are part of this growing jewellery trend.

Eyewear chains

Jentle Home Collection

Eyewear chains may not one that is entirely new in the fashion world, but it is making its comeback. It’s a step up from the ones your grandma wears, as seen on the runway models of Chanel, Balenciaga and Ashley Williams. Jennie of BLACKPINK has also recently collaborated with Gentle Monster, and what’s included in the collection is, of course, eyewear chains of both chunky and dainty ones.

Colourful baubles

The Spring/Summer collections often call for bright and colourful pieces, and this year’s jewellery trend did not disappoint. Stepping away from rough and industrial metal are colourful baubles, gemstones and crystals. Moschino had their models wear costume-like jewels set in heavy hammered brass, while Ulla Johnson’s jewellery design looks like something you might have had in the 2000s.

Pearls

These aren’t your average pearl necklaces, nor are they like the ones your grandmother used to wear. Pearls get a fresh and updated look for SS20. They’re seen incorporated into mismatched earrings, giant knotted necklace and intricate headpieces. In fact, Harry Styles was one of the first celebrities to wear the trend at the 2020 Brit awards.
