So, get ready to take notes as we give you the inside scoop to achieving this year’s theme of luxurious comfort with inspiration from trends you loved from the '80s and Y2K. You may discover new pairings for your wardrobe and jewelry accessories you never thought possible.

What Sparked Fall 2021 Fashion Trends?

Sterling Silver Gemstone Station Bracelet

Designers didn’t hold back as they launched their latest visions of what’s hot for fall 2021. The pandemic’s effect on daily routines gave us a waist-up presence across the world. Many of us found ourselves logging in to Zoom meetings and communicating in partial PJs from makeshift home offices. As the world grew antsy indoors, jewelry became the way to add a splash of life back into an otherwise dreary situation.

It’s no surprise fashion nodded its head at this growing trend and ran with it. The overwhelming need to reestablish a bit of normalcy was becoming more evident. As jewelry and hair accessories decorated school and work screens, the attempt to let personality and fashion shine through were succeeding. Luxurious comfort soon became fashion’s answer to adapting to our new life of loungewear with a twist of glam.

A Throwback to the '80s and Y2K Fashion

The pop of color resurgence is no surprise, as we’ve seen the popularity of '80s fashion grow over the last couple of seasons. Back are the big belts with jeweled heart-shaped buckles. Layering is a must once again for clothing and jewelry. Ask anyone amid the current fashion scene, and they tell you gold should be bold, and color can always be brighter. 

Sterling Silver Hammered Jet Set Earrings

The bright lights of neon are no exception. You’ll find the fashion trend across casual and formal wear with accessories making a huge splash. If you thought you’d seen it all in the '80s, designers have meshed the best of neon and diamonds to create jewelry that amplifies your outfit.  

Y2K’s spirited teen fashion trends also lend inspiration to many Fall 2021 trends. Bringing back the symbolism of hope and cheer, Y2K-inspired jewelry includes many trend-follower favorites. 

Among the returning Y2K trend favorites are:

  • multi-colored beaded women’s bracelets
  • stretchy necklaces and bracelets
  • cute nostalgic charms  

We can’t help but share a few of our favorite fine jewelry pieces that give off that nostalgic vibe. The return of multi-colored, mood-enhancing accessories is enough to enhance the look and feel of any comfy casual ensemble.
