Fabulous Fashion Jewelry for 2009

September 4th, 2009 by wys

So just what is hot this year in the world of fashion jewelry?

Well thankfully ‘affordable’ is the name of the game for 2009 - Beads, tribal jewelry and handmade pieces are hot, hot, hot! It seems the fashion world has taken notice of the global economic crisis, and instead of lavish diamonds and precious metals we’re talking wood, plastic, glass, crystals and non-precious metals. Of course to us ladies diamonds and white gold will never be out of fashion but at least we know we can look fabulous for less this year.

All of the top high street fashion stores have responded to the latest trends with sensational collections.
For something a little different why not take a trip to your local flea market or car boot sale – vintage remains huge in 2009 and, with handcrafted jewellery all the rage, you’re sure to unearth some beautiful bargains.
Beads are everywhere this year in all shapes and sizes. If you can’t find a set to complete your outfit then why not try making your own, that way you can pick your own beads to perfectly compliment your ensemble, and you can be sure you’re wearing a true original. There are loads of jewellery making kits available online or from craft shops and it couldn’t be easier. What are you waiting for?

Perhaps the most surprising trend for 2009 is the re-emergence of fashion brooches. Bright colourful pieces and tribal influenced statement pieces are a must have for any fashion junky and don’t be afraid to experiment with clashing colours. Again, flea markets may be a great place to unearth a retro bargain but if second-hand isn’t your style than head down to your local high street.

We’ll be tapping into our wholesale fashion jewellery contacts for the lowdown on what’s hot for 2010 so watch this space.
