Nothing puts the “personal” in personal style like a great piece of jewelry. You wouldn’t believe the number of conversations it can start or the amount of confidence it can instill in you on a blah day. Sure, not everyone can afford the Tiffany treatment—but that’s where online shopping comes in, right? To up your jewelry game and give every one of your outfits the Midas touch, check out these 9 cool trends.
1. MODERN PEARLS
We love our lola’s pearls as much as the next good girl, but these are a complete departure from that. Sculptural and statement-making, these pearls are super fresh but far from simple.

2. HALF-MOON HOOPS
We’re sure you’ve gathered quite a lot of hoops since the start of the new millennium (who hasn’t?). Next on your list: a crescent-shaped pair that mimics your smile.

3. ARTSY OUTLINES
The human face is the most popular subject of the outline trend, although we’ve also seen wire twisted into animals, flowers, and even some questionable body parts. This is easily the most whimsical thing on our list—but we promise, it’s wearable.

5. LITTLE CRYSTAL NECKLACES
Worn solo or in shallow layers, these delicate gold chains are like charm bracelets for adults. We’ve dubbed them “barely-there bling.”

You don’t need multiple piercings to spice up your earlobes. Earclimbers provide a painless option to the needle, since they only require one piercing but take up thrice the sparkling real estate. And this year, the more sparkle, the better.

9. FANCY HAIR CLIPS
Barrettes are back, and they’re kind of the new brooches. Once a strictly teens-and-below accessory, hairpins are now suitable for all ages. Whether you opt for one beaded clip or load your hairline with a dozen bobby pins, just remember this rule: HAVE FUN.
