Best jewellery to wear in summer: our top tips on beach-friendly baubles and bijou seasonal accessories
Holidays in the sun, pool parties - yes, the summer's upon us, and as you kick back and soak in the rays, a few bangles and trinkets are a great way of setting off that beach body and your gorgeous new designer bikini or sundress. Whether it's relaxing on golden sands or dining al fresco on a blissfully perfect summer's evening, you'll want your jewellery to be fun, fantastic and bang on trend. Worry not, because Federica Italian Fashion is your one stop shop for what's hot this season.
Stunning silver for golden days
As seen in the Chanel and Louis Vuitton spring catwalk collections, one of the themes of summer 2015 is big, bright white metal jewellery with a high shine and smooth, glossy finish. Cuff bracelets and hoop earrings are a great way of accessorizing a sporty swimsuit, creating an overall look that's chic and sleek, and they go just as well with casual tailored resort wear.
For a sharp Italian take on these trends, check out Federica Fashion's classic range such as our embellished silver hoop earrings and our wide metal bracelet with rhinestone pendants.
Boho and beads
Sixties flower power continues to blossom as a key inspiration for designers, with dream-catcher inspired disc pendants and earrings all the rage, and coloured beads and roughly shaped semi-precious stones very much in vogue.
Again, for a taste of hippy chic, you need look no further than Federica Italian fashion. Made with true Italian flair, our colour range channels this trend with pieces such as shimmering multi-coloured drop earrings, collar necklaces with glass bead discs, and chunky bracelets made from mixed stones, the perfect dreamy complement to a simple swimsuit, a gauzy cover-up or a billowy max dress.
Retro Riviera glamour
As Prada showed with their Spring/Summer collection, delicately worked pendant earrings and crystal necklaces never go out of style. The height of ladylike allure when paired with a breezy summer frock, they also look just as good with a retro swimming costume, be it a one piece or a bikini with a high-waisted pant. Federica Italian fashion reinterprets this style with elegant new twists on traditional drop earrings in glittering rhinestones and clip-on earrings in topaz and amethyst.
When you're strutting your stuff in a bikini, it's the perfect opportunity to go big and bold with extravagant long pendants and playfully chunky collar necklaces - after all, it's not like you'll have to worry about them clashing with the neckline of your dress! Combine a gorgeous statement necklace with a flattering push-up top and you'll have the basis for a dazzling beach ensemble.
Oversized chain-links are especially in this season, as we saw in Stella McCartney's Spring/Summer catwalk show. Not to be outdone, Federica Italian Fashion is brimming with eye-catching baubles to hang on your chest, from funky resin link necklaces to twisted silver collars and fascinating confections made out of flattened beads.
Summer wouldn't be summer without friendship bracelets. These cute woven or twisted bangles are just the thing to add a touch of effortless, carefree sparkle to a youthful and flirty triangle bikini or a crop top and denim cut-offs combo.
Made in Italy, Federica Fashion's crystal bracelets in shimmering coral and sea green should fit the bill nicely. Stack up a whole heap of them on your wrist for a richly layered look, or opt for one of our multi-stranded spiral bracelets with bead embellishments for a whole heap of glam.
