By Lyka Mae P. Chiang
Beauty isn’t everything. Not all women love fancy things and diamond rings, but a little style never hurt anybody. If you want to spice up your outfit for any occasion, make sure to note some of the things from this list of trendy accessories for women this 2017.
- Tassel Earrings
If you’ve been around Facebook lately, you might have seen a pair of this beaut from the viral “Stupid Love Girl” or Kat Galang. It may seem a little weird at first glance, but eventually, you’ll realize that it’s actually glam!
- Cuff Earrings
Do you love the art of ear adornment but can’t bother to pierce your ears? Cuff earrings or ear cuffs are here to save you! Not only are they making you look cool but they also look elegant enough to wear in formal events. I mean, you can totally include this one in your collection of accessories for wedding occasions!
- Single Earring
I know almost all of us have lost an earring even once in our lifetime. Well, if like me who’s just unlucky enough to be dropping one all the time, worry no more! Apparently, single earring is a thing now, and they’re definitely rocking the fashion world.
- Hoop Earrings
Say goodbye to tiny, minimalist earrings. You might have seen this one in an 80’s chick flick movie or your mom’s jewelry box. But hey, hoops are back, and the Millennials are totally loving them! So you might as well hurry and dig that vintage pair from your mom’s collection ASAP.
- Lariat Necklace
Pendants are cute but can look dull in some outfits. That’s why lariat necklaces have been born into the world. They look simple but classy and go with any outfit, be it for a formal or casual gala! These necklaces usually come in a long Y-drop with a pendant at the end form, or multilayered chains adorned by beads and gemstones—perfect for complementing a V-neck top or dress!
- Choker Necklace
Choker necklaces have a long history—from being a political symbol during the French revolution to being a uniform by prostitutes in the 1860s and a royal trend in the late 1800s. In 1944, it finally became a fashion trend, and as we all know, trends die only to get revived in the future. Now, it’s 2017 and chokers are definitely in again! They even come in different forms—velvet, plastic, beads, leather, and metal—and can be adorned by including sequins, studs, and pendants.
- Aviator Glasses
Aviator glasses were originally used by pilots to protect their eyes while flying. They have dark, reflective lenses and thin metal frames made for function and style. In the 1950s, they became a fashion trend worn by many people including the legendary Elvis Presley! Today, not only are they being worn for protection against UV rays but they also come in specs form just to elevate an outfit.
- Midi rings
If you’re one of those people who just can’t get enough of rings and literally every single one of your fingers has a ring around it, then midi rings are just meant for you. A midi ring sits on your finger above the lower knuckle, and they’re stackable! You can put two or three rings in one finger depending on your preference. If you know Phoebe Buffay from American television series Friends, then you must have fallen in love with her perky personality and fetching finger ornaments.
