“Back to School” doesn’t quite have the same meaning this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look good. Back to school jewellery trends are already here, and no matter who it is – highschool teacher, college student, or someone in-between – they’re going to want to look good for the new school year – even if it is online. HOJ has put together a list of back to school jewellery trends you won’t want to miss out on!
1. Alphabet Jewellery
Nothing says “back to school” like alphabet jewellery. They’re perfect for just about everyone who’s looking to add something personal to their wardrobe. They also make for great gifts.
2. Anchor and Paperclip Chains
Anchor and paperclip chains are hot right now, especially in gold! These chains are perfect for layering together, with other chains, or on their own. You can even find them in bracelets and anklets, too, making them a versatile fashion statement. Anchor and paperclip chains are our number one item on our back to school jewellery trends list.
Pearls are perfect for this season! This gemstone is the perfect combination of classy elegance and modern minimalism, and pairing it with a gold accessory will make it sparkle that much more. Better yet, pair it with another trendy item, such as an anchor chain or paper clip chain for a unique jewellery piece everyone is sure to love!
4. Herringbone Chains
This blast from the past is very popular right now – and the thicker, the better! These chains are a great way to wear a statement piece that isn’t overpowering. They can be worn layered or on their own, and are also available in anklets, making this one of our
5. Thick Hoops
Thick hoops were popular earlier in the season, and they’re still going strong! It doesn’t matter how large the hoop itself is in diameter, as long as it’s wide it’s in.
6. Stylish Hoops
To be fair, hoops are always in style, but when you change up their basic design into something unique, they’re instantly that much more in style. You can find them in all kinds of unique designs, so take some time to sift through them all.
7. Hoops with Charms
Right now people are hanging all kinds of charms from their hoops. You can find hoops with stars, lightning bolts, and even feathers. These charms add a… well… charm to the appearance of the hoops they dangle from. It’s easy to see why these are one of our favourite back to school jewellery trends this season.
8. Mis-Matched Studs
Fashion isn’t always about symmetry and perfection. Sometimes, in order to properly express yourself, you need to shake things up a bit. Mis-Matched studs are the answer to that. They’re a great way to add whimsy to any outfit without having to work too hard at it. When it comes to back to school jewellery trends, we suggest something like our rainbow and cloud earring set.
9. Animal Jewellery
Who doesn’t like animals? Adding cute creatures to your wardrobe is a great way to add some colour and character to any outfit. Our personal favourite? The mismatching dog and bone studs, of course!
10. Dog Tags
Dog tags are great accessories because they can be worn plain or engraved. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and can be worn layered or on their own. Place one on a satellite chain for extra flair. Dog tags are one of those back to school jewellery trends that will always look good, so they can be worn through the years.
11. Celestial Jewellery
Fall will bring more celestial jewellery into fashion, but if you’re not into the bigger, chunkier moons and stars, that’s fine. There are minimalist options available for people who prefer something smaller and daintier. Besides, everyone could use a little luck from the stars and moon when in school.
12. Long Necklaces and Lariats
Layering is back in style, and with that include long necklaces. 26″, 28″, and 30″ necklaces are in style again, along with lariats. Pair these with other trendy items like anchor chains and pearls and you’ve got yourself some great looks featuring back to school jewellery trends.
13. Sapphire Jewellery
September’s birthstone is sapphire, making it a good choice to wear back to school. The deep blues are a lovely accent colour, especially when the leaves start to change colours in late September.
Diamond Cut Charms
Know someone who’s in the school band or a gym class coach? There’s a charm for them! Diamond cut charms are another great jewellery piece that can be personal. These charms are available in a large variety of designs and symbols, so it’s always worth taking a look.
15. Leaf Jewellery
With autumn around the corner, leaf jewellery is a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe. When it comes to back to school jewellery trends, anything nature-inspired is always a good choice.
16. Feather Jewellery
Similar to leaves, feather jewellery is a great choice when it comes to fall fashion.
17. Colourful Jewellery
Sometimes a little colour can brighten someone’s day, and that goes for colourful jewellery as well. Back to school jewellery trends don’t have to be restricted to the usual colours. Embrace accessories that utilize enamel and colourful stones.
18. Rainbow Jewellery
Not to be confused with colourful jewellery, rainbow jewellery is a great way to add colour to an outfit in a fun way! Rainbows have a lot of symbolism and meaning to them, as well. Of all the back to school jewellery trends, this is one of the more fun ones to choose from.
