Well thankfully “affordable” is the name of the game for 2009-Beads, Tribal Jewelry and Handmade Accessories are hot, hot, hot! It seems the fashion world has taken notice of the global economic crisis, and instead of lavish diamonds and precious metals we’re talking wood, plastic, glass, crystals and non-precious metals such as Vegetable Ivory called Tagua. Of course to us ladies diamonds and white gold will never be out of fashion but at least we know we can look fabulous for less this year.
Many have responded to the new trends with beautiful collections, and we’re expecting the rest of the highstreet mainstays to follow suit. For something a little different why not take a trip to your local flea market or car boot sale-vintage remains huge in 2009 and, with Handcrafted Jewelry all the rage, you’re sure to unearth some beautiful bargains.
Beads are everywhere this year in all shapes and sizes. If you can’t find a set to complete your outfit then why not try making your own, that way you can pick your own accessory to perfectly compliment your ensemble, and you can be sure you’re wearing a true original. There are loads of jewelry making kits available online or from craft shops and it couldn’t be easier. What are you waiting for?
Fashion Cuffs are also making a comeback this year, although some will say they never went out of fashion. Big, bold and colorful is the way forward so again, flea markets, car boot sales, jumble sales and vintage shops are the place to look. If you’re not into trawling round for second hand treasure then rest assured the highstreet stores will have plenty on offer.
