Jewelry Trend for Spring 2011: Fall in Love with Fabric (and More!)
By Katrina Caspelich
We can’t get enough of a favorite 2011 spring fashion trend: fashion must-haves made from chiffon, denim, and leather. We want more, more, more, but head-to-toe leather is a little too Mad Max for us. And 1 blouse, 1 pair of pants, or 1 handbag in any outfit just isn’t satisfying enough. A new way to sport some of our favorite 2011 spring fashion trends? Jewelry! Beads, chains, and all things sparkly are staples for girlie glam. But for your 2011 accessories, try a fresh take on costume jewelry and opt for pieces made with silk, denim, leather, lace, and more.
Jewelry made from fabric and other materials is THE jewelry trend for spring 2011. Here, our 7 favorite jewelry accessories to rock this spring trend.
1. Jewelry Trend Spring 2011: Silk Jewelry
Add some flair to any outfit with this brightly colored, silk georgette 12k-gold-plated metal adjustable ring. We love our cocktail rings, but spring 2011 accessory trends demand a lighter look. Try this lightweight Kate Spade Flower Ring (in Flo Pink) for $55. You get a 2011 spring fashion trend bonus since this silk fabric ring works the floral angle as well—another must-try trend for spring 2011.
2. Jewelry Trend Spring 2011: Acrylic Jewelry
Opt for spring fashion jewelry that lets you channel your inner sailor. Make waves on the high-fashion seas with this nautically inspired acrylic and metal Madewell On the Ropes Necklace, for $48. Alone or layered with other necklaces, such as pearls, chains, and pendants, it’s the perfect way to work the spring 2011 accessory trend.
3. Jewelry Trend Spring 2011: Leather Jewelry
Obsessed with your leather jacket? Spring is here, and soon those leather fashion looks will be hibernating for spring and summer. Get more leather every day with a funky new way to wear one of our favorite materials as an accessory for spring. You’ll love this House of Harlow 1960 Leather & Crystal Cocktail Ring for $70.

Accessories with embellishments? Beads, sequins, and rhinestones—we’ve seen it all in the spring 2011 accessory trends. But with this pair of Anthropologie Feather Lace Earrings, accessorized accessories never looked so good! These earrings, handmade from metal, rayon, and cotton, are not only unique but practically weightless. You can pick up these lace fabric jewelry accessories for your spring wardrobe for just $28.
6. Jewelry Trend Spring 2011: Denim Jewelry
Denim is a staple in most of our closets, as well as one of the most popular spring 2011 accessory trends, so why not wear more of it? As you trade in your dark jeans for bold prints and other bright, spring fashion trends, keep the denim as part of your spring fashion jewelry style with this Ted Rossi Tie Dye Denim Zipper Cuff, $82. A denim item perfect to rock year-round. From the zipper detail to the tie-dye print, wearing this cuff will feel like wearing your favorite denim jeans.
7. Jewelry Trend Spring 2011: Cotton Jewelry
Start a new conversation this spring with a statement necklace in fabric. We love this Asos Strung Statement Necklace on Rope, $26.90. Made from wood, resin, and cotton, this wearable work of art is perfect with a plain white T-shirt and jeans.
