If, like us, you spent most of your childhood holidays collecting seashells on the beach then SS19’s latest drops are sure to delight. New, nostalgic and unexpectedly cool, shell-laden jewellery is back for the season ahead, with the runways and Instagram both awash with the throwback trend. In our latest style video, we present the key pieces that have arrived online and in store, as well as deciphering how to wear seashell jewellery – no matter where the summer takes you.
Seashell Jewellery: On Holiday
Summer getaways are the perfect place to showcase the souvenir staples that we all know and love. Sun dresses and swimsuits are the dreamiest backdrops for mismatched shell and pearl-bead necklaces and shoulder-grazing earrings, nodding to the nostalgic designs that most of us wore as children. Reading more chic than beach, this season’s styles also combine with gold-tone metals and abstract shapes for a fresh, directional feel.
Seashell Jewellery: At Home
Back on our shores, seashells are still retaining their relevance. Long, layered chains, stacked bracelets and cowrie-embellished earrings are the memento pieces that we’re taking back from the beach and styling with our summer favourites. For something that feels city-appropriate, wear yours against a tonal white palette, highlighting the natural hues of the jewels with a slatted wood bag.
