Many words and phrases have taken on new meanings and become part of our regular lexicon this year: social distancing, flattening the curve, outdoor dining, etc. One that I happen to actually be fond of? Zoom jewelry! As many of us continue to work from home and participate in virtual meetings, it remains important to get dressed each day with a purpose. Psychologically, continuing to dress as we normally would can improve our productivity and general attitudes. To add some extra pep, don’t hesitate to add a little something sparkly to your ensemble. The best part of this season’s jewelry trends is that each one is strong enough to stand alone – no need to coordinate other jewelry or accessories.

The simplest way to achieve the look is through a clothing item that doubles as jewelry. On the Fall/Winter NYFW 2020 runways, brands like Bottega Veneta and Rokh featured pieces with metal jewelry and chains built in. Many brands have since taken note, and have found ways to incorporate embellishments on everyday pieces – even your tees get an upgrade with this trend!

Chokers are the necklace trend that constantly returns. This fall, we’re seeing chunkier metal versions that sit right at the collarbone, as seen at the Proenza Schouler and Chloe shows. These statement collars look chic with all your professional wardrobe go-tos, from button-downs to blazers.

Another way to stand out virtually is through dramatic headpieces, as Prada and Fendi were fond of styling. Go for one that glitters and keep the rest of your outfit muted. As it gets chillier, these headbands will look picture-perfect when paired with your chunky knit sweaters. Forever one of my favorite accessories, I’m excited to add a colorful jeweled option to my collection this year!

Any of these pieces will be sure to make you the star of your next Zoom. Extra polish and a bold statement in just one step!
