Know the styles and necklines of clothes in the season ahead to offer the right jewelry in store
Key fall ready-to-wear clothing shows in four cities—New York, London, Milan, and Paris—took place Feb. 2–March 9, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends that will affect the jewelry we wear. Jewelers need to note these trends (see the entire report here) in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season ahead. Oversize earrings are the seventh trend to consider stocking; here are five new pieces to coordinate with the season’s most important styles.
Oversize earrings. These are a holdover from the spring runways. Louis Vuitton showed them on models, as did Maison Margiela. Also important: all the outfits—think Halston Heritage, Monique Lhuillier, and Milly—where a big earring would serve as a great accessory. This look, too, is pretty easy for jewelers to offer; just look for the big styles that are already in your cases.
