As we inch into a new season, thoughts inevitably turn to what we want to start wearing. Summer fashion is, by its very nature, an explosion of colour and joy as we all start to hope for better weather and longer days. Given how the weather certainly can't always be guaranteed, however, it stands to reason that we'd be looking for pieces to update our outfits but which can be worn again and again. And that's where jewellery comes in.

From a statement pair of earrings to classic silver pieces to bold necklaces, the catwalks were full of brilliant jewels that will instantly update any look. And thankfully, it's easy to recreate such an effect with many of THOMAS SABO's new collections, which are full of gems that will be a very welcome addition to your jewellery box.

Adorn Your Ankles

A staycation in the rain may be the closest thing to a holiday many of us will enjoy this year but that doesn't mean you can't dress the part of a sun-seeking tourist to lift your spirits. Anklets have been steadily increasing in popularity over the past couple of years, with celebrities including Bella Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showing theirs off on social media, as well as multiple designers like Versace featuring them on the runway.

Anklets are consistently a summer best-seller, so it's worth buying yours now – before they all go. Choose from pretty Sterling silver styles or opt for dainty gold anklets with colourful jewels – either way, you can wear them with floaty dresses for maximum vacation vibes or team with cropped jeans to add some pizzazz to your weekend outfits.

Bold Bangles

From Chloé to Celine, cuffs and bangles are big news for summer. Whether you wear yours on your upper arm (á la Sienna Miller in the early noughties) or stack them on your wrists, there are some timeless styles from which to choose.

Try a simple gold or silver bangle, for instance, either on its own for a classic take on the trend or wear multiple at once for more impact. Or, if you're in the market for something bolder, try this beautiful, jewel-encrusted bangle that might look like an incredibly valuable heirloom but is, in fact, under £300.

Ear Candy

One jewellery trend that never seems to fade out of the limelight is a pair of statement earrings. But for summer 2021, they really do reign supreme. Perhaps it's a result of the fact that we've all spent so much time on Zoom but designers from JW Anderson to Colville are banking on ear candy in a big way.

The beauty of this trend is that anything goes. Whether you choose vintage-inspired oversized studs or something more decorative, they'll enliven any outfit in an instant.

Noticeable Necklaces

It's not just earrings that are having their moment in the sun. For fashion, it's all about bold necklaces again, whether they're plain or embellished.

If you want to embrace this trend with high quality pieces that look far more expensive than they actually are, try this captivating emerald necklace or even this brilliantly ornate pendant. You could even layer your necklaces for an Insta-approved take on the trend.

Cocktail Hour

As we all embrace going out again, cocktail rings feel like an appropriately joyful way to celebrate. Wear one as a statement in its own right or, if you're feeling particularly jazzy, opt for multiple styles at the same time.

When it comes to jaw-dropping jewels in every colour of the rainbow, THOMAS SABO really does have a dazzling collection. Whether you opt for emerald green, dusky pink or aquamarine is up to you – although be warned that the choice won't be easy.
