Fashion Trend Report 4 of 10: 10 Necklaces to Accessorize Spring Attire

Key spring ready-to-wear clothing shows in four cities—New York City, London, Milan, and Paris—took place from Sept. 2 through Oct. 1, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends. Jewelers need to take note in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season ahead. Necklaces were among the spring 2015 clothing trends outlined in Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2015 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know and Why. Here are 10 ways to adorn some of those spring ensembles.

4. Necklines and Necklaces

Necklines were varied—square, V, asymmetrical, boat, halter, etcetera—but all called for a necklace. Runway models were accessorized in weighty chokers at Mugler, bibs at Andrew Gn, little pendants at Versace, and some long numbers at Céline and Giorgio Armani. If 2014 is remembered as the year of the ear and all manner of mix-and-match studs, jackets, and climbers, then 2015 could be the year of the necklace.
