Ready for a fresh batch of jewelry staples? As we settle into the last quarter of 2021, it’s only natural that we sit down to discuss the upcoming styles that will dominate for the season ahead and into next year. Even though jewelry items tend to have a much longer shelf life than seasonal clothing trends, they do also go through style cycles, which is why we’re about to highlight the outdated jewelry trends for fall 2021 and, consequently, which ones we’re replacing them with.
We think you’ll agree with us when we say that pieces like dainty rings no longer feel like the freshest options and that others like creative pearls and chunky chains are only heating up. Of course, these are simply our opinions based on what we’ve been noticing in the fashion world, and you should always feel free to accessorize how you please. But if you’re looking for some guidance for your next jewelry-box audit or are simply curious to see which trends are hitting their expiration dates, look no further than the eight jewelry trends below that we’re phasing out and the pieces that are replacing them.
