We at Evelyn Brooks Designs want to keep you updated on all the trends ranging from clothing to jewelry! Below, there are 3 Jewelry trends Summer 2015 that we have illustrated featuring our own designs!
Stacking your bracelets is a rising trend in wrist-wear. The more variety in your stacked bracelets, the better. We’ve illustrated this technique our stretchy silver bracelet paired with our good luck eco-friendly bracelet and the passion red wrapping bracelet. These bracelets provide a variety with their thickness as well as their colors so they look appealing stacked together.
The next trend showing up in mid-summer is mixing and matching your earrings. Typically, this trend usually pairs one stud earring with one statement or dangle earring. We have paired our Imperial Long Drop Earring with our Good Luck Red Post Earring. The similar coloring on the huayruro seeds make this pairing match just enough to be two different types of earrings.
The final trend we’re showing is statement earrings. These statement earrings are perfect for, as the name suggests, making a statement. We’ve included our Gold Moon Nazca Earrings and Nazca Passion Red Earrings as statement earrings. They pair well with simple and sophisticated outfits.
Next time you plan an outing day or night, remember my designs can be worn day or night;)
And 20s fashion trends aren’t the only decade the new millennium of fashion recognizes based on films.
Remember “Across the Universe” and how people started channeling their inner flower child and disco queen, and their love of The Beatles? Or remember when “Pride and Prejudice” with Keira Knightley and “Becoming Jane” with Anne Hathaway came out? The trend when those films released were soft, romantic colors and prim and proper styles in chiffon.
So what is the Gatsby take on modern 20s fashion for the 2000s?
Brooks Brothers,Prada and Tiffany were some of the designer brands the film used to recreate the 20s “look.” Brooks Brothers even offered a line of Gatsby inspired duds for men and women this season, making the film fashion accessible to those outside of Hollywood (and to those of us who are on a budget!).
And the fashion trends this spring didn’t stop with clothing. Ties, cuff links, jewelry, hats and footwear were also updated with some inspiration from “The Great Gatsby.”
But why do these films, and films in general, impact the fashion world so much? These styles aren’t new or innovative or even creative — we’re just reusing a past fashion sense and repurposing it for the present.
So why is film fashion, especially for films set in a different decade, such a big part of the fashion world?
“1920s American society represents the good old days of prosperity and fun to the average Joe (or Joanna) in 2012…It was a decade of indulgence, rapid economic growth and change. The First World War was finally over. Cinema became an instant obsession for Americans because films suddenly had sound. Automobile ownership became more affordable and accessible, connecting people despite geographical distances. Urban environments flourished as the Modernist movement took shape. Artists and musicians began to blossom in new ways, surrounded by the cultural excitement of the Harlem Renaissance, [and] women gained new rights and roles in society…How better to keep this spirit alive and this decade relevant than through the living art of fashion – a tasteful and graceful way to do so.”
Ultimately, reworking past fashions into modern times is more than just keeping up with trends, styles and appearances. It’s about remembering the positives of a past generation of people, lifestyle and ideals. And when it comes to films, it’s about putting yourself into that film through your fashion.
What could be more fun and creative than that?!
It gives us the opportunity to freshen up and re-imagine our own style. So try something new with your style, and use a film as inspiration to create an entirely new look. Films keep fashion fresh, exciting and most of all, they serve as inspiration for a fabulous new look!
