This Unique Jewelry Trend Will Make Any Outfit Instantly Cooler


From seashells to fruit and see-through hoops, there’s hardly a shortage of playful jewelry trends this summer—and the next wave (pun intended) comes in the form of squiggly shapes.

Yep, this season, swirly-shaped pieces are making for a lighthearted look, lending a uniquely polished element to warm-weather outfits, from workwear to weekend attire. Whether you go for an earring, bracelet, necklace or ring, wavy elements are slightly unexpected and serve as a fresh alternative to sculptural shapes, which have been at the forefront of jewelry for some time now. We’re hardly suggesting you move on from architectural forms entirely, but if you’re in the mood for something quirkier, why not go for a fresh and unexpected piece?

To get you in the mood, we’re spotlighting 18 squiggly styles ahead, starting at just $30. Cue the compliments.
