The thing about fashion is that it can always surprise you. Sometimes it’s with an abstract new silhouette concept, and other times it’s by bringing back obscure trends and making them stylish again. In terms of jewelry fashion in 2021, there’s one trend that caught everyone by surprise. The so-called camp jewelry, which we all made from colorful beads in the summer, is making a comeback this year!
Camp Jewelry Is Colorful, Chunky, and Statement-Making
For years now, jewelry trends gravitated around layered thin gold chains, stacking rings, and wearing mid-size hoops. Pair that minimalistic look with the recent introduction of heavier chains, and you have a rather “safe” assortment of fashionable accessories. That’s why the comeback of camp jewelry is such a refreshing trend to look forward to. It’s full of color, shapes, and sizes that are both reminiscent of the 90s and are a fun departure from minimalist fashion.
Quirky Designs for Everyday Wear
What made the camp jewelry trend official was the fact that brands like La Manso, Éliou, and Roxanne Assoulin released their new lines of bright-colored and quirky jewelry designs that cemented what 2021 would look like. Even though many thought camp necklaces, earrings, and bracelets wouldn’t last long, it seems like more and more people are warming up to them. We’ve seen the colorful designs on Instagram, celebrities, and TikTok-ers which means only one thing: camp jewelry is here to stay. At least for a while.
Jewelry designers are happy about this change in creative direction as it helps people to “fully express themselves,” says Cristina Mantilla, designer, and co-founder of Éliou. Mantilla also says that we don’t live in quiet times anymore, and everyone is free to showcase their personality through fashion, and it’s important for designers to listen to what people want and offer that to them. This is certainly the case with camp jewelry. Wouldn’t you agree?
Carrot-leg jeans? No, these aren’t jeans made from carrots – although that could certainly be on the cards within the fashion world. Carrot-leg jeans are all about bringing an iconic ‘80s look back into the modern world, and there’s no doubt about the fact that this high-waisted trend is something we can definitely get on board with. Going from loose at the top to tight at the bottom, this is a style of jeans that we haven’t seen in a while. So, you might need convincing as to why carrot-leg jeans are everything we need and more.
They Can Be Dressed Up Or Down
One of the best things about carrot-leg jeans is the fact that they are suitable for every occasion. No, we’re not just saying that. These jeans can be dressed up or dressed down, which means that they can be the perfect transition between day to night. Head to work in these jeans and a blouse, and then add some heels into the mix to really get the party started.
They’re Super Simple
If you’re the kind of person that likes simple, comfortable fashion, then we have a feeling that you’ll love carrot-leg jeans. When you want to rock a casual look while heading to the supermarket, simply team these jeans with a white crop and white sneakers, and even throw a jacket over the top if you’re feeling a little chilly.
They’re A Statement Piece
Skinny jeans and mom jeans have had their moment, and we all know what they look like. However, it’s certainly been a minute since carrot-leg jeans have been given their chance to shine, and because of that, they make a serious statement. These jeans will be the highlight of your whole outfit, which is something we don’t normally get to say about jeans.
So, will you be adding carrot-leg jeans to your wardrobe? We know we will.
