Casual Jewelry Staples of 2022

March 15th, 2022

When you’re rushing out the door in the morning, it’s ideal to have a few staple pieces of jewelry that are easy to throw on knowing they’ll look perfect with just about any outfit. Jewelry can boost attire to the next level, ensuring the wearer is stylish and highly fashionable. We’ve put together a guide to the styles that will be indispensable to you this year.

Minimalist Hoops

Everyone needs a classic pair of hoops in their wardrobe. A pared-back, no-frills set of medium to small hoops can easily take a look from basic to polished. These glittering earrings frame the face beautifully and add a bit of shine to your outfit. Hoops have been trending for quite a while, but in 2022, we’ve seen them become a true staple of casual wear.

A pair like these 10k yellow gold hoops from TACORI is ideal for wearing to class, the office, or even a short trip to the grocery store. They’ll also pair effortlessly with a little black dress or well-tailored suit.

Stackable Rings

Ring stacking is a seemingly unstoppable trend of the past few years and is excellent for casual wear. Throw on a few rings of varying styles to create a dynamic and individualized look. Pick new placements and combinations to fit your aesthetic of the day.

This white gold Kattan ring is slim and lightweight, leaving plenty of room on the finger for more rings and giving the look a bit of texture with intricate milgrain detail. It has uncommon sophistication and elegance.

Modern Nameplate Necklaces

A necklace featuring something unique like a name, first initial, birthstone, or zodiac sign easily imbues a look with individuality. A small pendant lends will also lend itself easily to another fashion trend of recent years: layering necklaces.

Love Letters pendants by TACORI are stunning yet pared back with plenty of metalwork detail as well accent diamonds that give the piece some subdued sparkle. They are particularly effective at allowing one to express themselves and their individuality through jewelry.

Beaded Bracelets

A timeless style of jewelry, beaded bracelets are great for casual looks because of both their whimsical aesthetic and smooth surfaces that are exceptionally comfortable to wear. Stack a few beaded bracelets or bangles together for an effortlessly varied aesthetic.

Choose a piece featuring a variety of brightly colored beads for a fun, eye-catching look, or a more sophisticated, monochromatic look like that of this sterling silver Dew Drop bracelet. Dress it up with the addition of more silver jewelry on your fingers or neck.

Enamel Jewelry

Brightly colored, opaque enamel jewelry is a trend that has been gaining a lot of traction in the past year and we believe it makes the perfect casual-wear staple. Slip on a bright enamel ring or pair of earrings that are fun and eye-catching.

The vibrant blue enamel of these Simon G. stud earrings is sure to add visual interest to even your most minimal of casual looks. They have an understated brilliance with peerless flair.
