The summer of cocktails

The summer of cocktails

This spring and summer, cocktail rings are set to be big. Straight from the runways, this trend is set to be a key wardrobe feature ever since the rise of wearing opera gloves in the evening became popular. If you are looking to incorporate bold styles, intricate designs and colourful gemstones into your look – this trend could be for you!

How to style cocktail rings?

Go vintage

Just like the flapper girls of the roaring 20’s who made cocktail rings a feminine political statement piece during the prohibition period, why not try a vintage cocktail ring as your personal statement? Keep your outfit as simple as possible and let your ring do the talking – this style tip works perfectly for the daytime and is office appropriate.

Try maximalism

For those looking to dare the maximalism trend with their rings, a cocktail ring is a great starting piece. Pick the most unusual shapes and colours first and work your ring stack around them. A precious gemstone with a mix of dainty rings in various metals can really make an impact, perfect for an evening look.

Bigger, bolder and brighter

The key to working this trend into your jewellery rotation this year is to select the cocktail ring that makes the biggest statement. Unusual shapes, colours and designs work best for any outfit. Whether you want to dress-up a simple t-shirt and jeans, or add an elegant touch to a classic black dress – the cocktail ring is to be the stound-out piece.

Get ready for the Opera

Fresh off the runway, opera gloves are becoming more popular for mainstream fashion. For an evening look, we suggest pairing your beloved cocktail rings with long satin gloves for a modern take on this timeless classic. Bold satin gloves with a sparkling diamond cocktail ring will really be a showstopper.

When in doubt, go black

Black goes with everything. It’s always a safe option when trying out a new trend and makes no exception when it comes to cocktail rings. Large prints and bold colours can really compete with the beauty of a cocktail ring and overshadow the look you are trying to achieve, so pairing cocktail rings with a simple black outfit is the best way to make the most out of this trend. As a style tip, try a diamond or gemstone cocktail ring with a black flowing evening dress to instantly elevate your look.
