The most on trend Summer jewelry and accessories for 2022
Obviously I’m all over the pearls and anything glam. The bodychains and bellychains also have me as they bring back so many fun memories from the 90s and Y2K.
Actually I’ve pretty much been wearing all of these accessory trends already as I’m all about accessorizing and as Coco Chanel would say, put everything on and take one thing off.
1. Chain belt
I brought my Chanel gold chain belt back out again a couple of years ago and have been continuing to wear it in 2022 along with my new Versace Medusa bag with it’s chain strap. It’s definitely an investment piece but I’ve had mine 10 years and it still gets worn.
2. Belly chains
Belly chains are a fun way to get the 90’s trend going strong right now and can be worn with everyday wear or swimwear.
3. Summer jewelry trend 2022 | Body chains
I picked up my body chain years ago from Beach Bunny and haven’t really worn it. So I’m excited to get some wear out if this cute Summer accessory this year. They do get tangled pretty easily so try to hang it to store it.
4. Hair claw clips to give that 90’s/Y2K aesthetic.
I was never really into claw clips the 1st time around and reserved them just for the shower, doing a hair mask or blowdrying my hair. What got me this time was how easy it makes doing your hair, it’s so perfect for 2nd day hair and there’s some super cute styles around in 2022.
5. Summer jewelry trends 2022 | Chokers
Chokers were such a massive 90s trend that there’s no surprise that they’re back as one of the summer jewelry trends for 2022 as seen at Lanvin and Tom Ford. Think less plastic ones that were around a few years ago and more glam which is perfect for the sparkly party fashion trends we’re seeing in 2022.
Chokers in all iterations from gold to sparkly to pearl variations are in style for 2022, these are my favorites.
6. Summer jewelry | Cuffs
Worn on both the upper and lower arm as seen at Prada and Fendi. Look for styles that the band can be adjusted on for the perfect fit. I’ve never worn cuffs on my upper arms before as I haven’t wanted to draw attention to them but I’m going to give it a go this year.
Chains and double chain jewelry and accessories are everywhere for 2022 from jewelry to bags. I think most of us have been wearing gold chain necklaces for the last few years and they’re still in style for 2022. As well as silver chain necklaces, chain strap handbags and obviously belts.
8. Colorful baubles especially turquoise and green.
Think festival jewelry from brightly colored bracelets to belly chains. Green is a big trend this year for a color pop or to create a monochromatic look since green is a big color trend for 2022.
9. Summer jewelry 2022 | Fringe necklaces
Fringe clothing isn’t the only fringe trend for 2022. Fringe necklaces are also a summer jewelry trend 2022 as seen at Chanel. Think more glam than cowgirl fringing for 2022.
10. Natural accessories
Accessories made from natural materials like natural stones. Style them with your t-shirts and everyday basics to let the jewelry be the style statement.
11. Summer jewelry | Shell jewelry
Not just for vacation and the beach. Shell earrings, necklaces, belly chains and anklets are a super cute summer accessory.

12. Sporty sunglasses
I’m not going to admit to how many pairs of sunglasses I own. As they’re a Summer (actually year round) accessory that has the power to completely change your look and style.
Sporty sunglasses can be 90’s, Y2K or more modern for Summer 2022 so wear whatever’s most flattering on you and that you love the most.
13. Gold earrings and not just hoops for Summer 2022
My gold hoop earrings are probably my most worn earrings. For summer jewelry 2022 it’s not just gold hoops that are in style still but unusual and unique less structured shapes.
14. Baseball caps
Another accessory trend that makes life easier. I love a baseball cap for covering up 2nd day hair, roots or running to the grocery store. The baseball caps for 2022 are one color, logos are still in style but stay away from trucker caps.
15. Wide waist belts
If you want to create a flattering hourglass shape these are the belts to do it with. Style them with your maxi dresses, work dresses, or over your blazers.
16. Summer jewelry Pearlcore : pearl jewelry
The beauty of pearls is that they go with everything from a simple tank to a gown. If a pearl choker isn’t for you, wear them in your hair or pick up a pearl anklet or drop earrings.
French Kande has some beautiful pieces in both gold and silver designed for layering. Each medallion also has a meaning and is repurposed from old medallions found in France.
17. Bright colored driving gloves
We can probably thank Dua Lipa and Emily in Paris for this trend and Prada has some of the most beautiful and practical versions thanks to it’s little pouch. I haven’t bought a pair yet but am definitely planning on it going into Fall as my hands are always cold.
18. Green accessories
You can’t avoid green this year. It’s everywhere from clothes to bags to shoes to jewelry trends 2022. If you think green isn’t for you try different shades or try purple instead which is another big color trend for 2022.
19. Purple accessories
Purple is another trending color for 2022 whether that’s a bag, gloves or platform shoes. It’s an easy way to add a pop of color and brighten up your Summer wardrobe or create a monochromatic look.
