All the Jewelry Trends Celebs Can’t Get Enough Have Strong ‘Summer Camp’ Vibes

·4 min read

The rainbow beads, the kitschy rings, the friendship bracelets—all your favorite childhood jewelry trends are in again. The colorful-DIY-accessory craze taking off right now speaks to our collective desire to book trips without worry and have fun in the sun. After spending the last few holidays at home, it should come as no surprise that we're looking to quench our thirst for travel by any means necessary. The simplest way to do so? Through accessories that remind us of carefree summers by the beach, stringing together alphabet necklaces and braiding rope bracelets for best friends and little cousins.

Celebrities in particular are making a strong case for the return of these happy-go-lucky pieces. Vanessa Hudgens loves layering her rainbow and pearl beaded necklace from The Sis Kiss. La Manso's vibrant enamel rings are practically glued to Dua Lipa's fingers. And Sophia Richie's group wrist shot is giving us major travel FOMO.

Of course, the crafty jewelry trend is not new. It tends to crop up right before the start of summer, when we swap our everyday gold and silver for vibrant, plasticky options that can withstand a dip in the water and ample sunscreen. These pieces may be less valuable than fine metals, but they're just as easy to style with any cute summer outfit you have planned. And thanks to their playful and easygoing nature, you can throw them on for any summer activity—poolside hangs, brunch dates, and weekend bike rides included.

From beaded chokers to sparkly anklets, summer-camp jewelry is thriving—and if you want to bring this optimistic energy into your own wardrobe, scroll down to shop some of our favorite jewelry trends of 2021.

Beaded Chokers

Cute emoji, baroque pearls, and a mood-boosting rainbow palette. What's not to love about a beaded choker? There are virtually endless designs to choose from—and all look great styled with a simple white T-shirt or tank top. Check out six of our favorite finds, including The Sis Kiss necklace Hudgens and Richie both have in their jewelry drawer.

Nothing makes a mirror selfie pop quite like a statement ring, and the more fingers you can deck out the better.
