Every time we need to perk up our outfits, jewelry comes to the rescue. With the right chunky necklace or pair of sparkly statement earrings, your blazer/dress/sweater looks even more stylish. (Personally, I never leave the house without earrings on, even if it's just a simple pair of diamond studs.) And with all the spring/fall 2020 runway offerings, jewelry options are bound to be plentiful and fresh, just like your favorite 2020 handbags or shoes. We've gone ahead and pinpointed the nine jewelry trends to know for the season—and even provided similar get-it-now options—so you don't have to wait a minute longer to shop. After all, your outfit is in need of new accessories.

Animal Motif Jewelry

Whether it was a giant scorpion collar at Balmain or the fish charms hanging off the necklaces at Dior, designers found some way to incorporate animals into their jewelry. The pieces looked whimsical and edgy—the adult upgrade from your childhood accessories. Elsewhere on the fall 2020 runways, Carolina Herrera had bird earrings while Erdem's silver earrings featured flamingos (or possibly storks?).

Statement Chokers

Across the spring and fall 2020 runways, statement chokers popped up around models' necks. Gucci piled on two of the accessories while Jeremy Scott of Moschino included one in a larger set of layered necklaces. Other brands like Monse and The Blonds debuted buckle options. Look for extravagant chokers come autumn 2020 to wear with your V-neck sweaters and knitted cardigans. The theme for accessories, it seems, is go big or go home.

Spike Choker Necklace
Coup De Coeur farfetch.com

Your usual look of delicately layered necklaces could use some edge. That's where this choker comes in. It reminds me of a fancy animal collar, but is strictly meant for humans.

Pearls are everywhere right now for both ladies and men (see: ASAP Rocky). This choker looks great layered with other metal chains, which make it a little less prim and proper.

Everyday Objects

If you're wondering, "Are those pens?" on the ears of models at Fendi's fall 2020 runway show, the answer is yes. The look of everyday objects turned accessories was an unusually cool trend on the runways because it was one of the first things to catch our eyes. When your outfit needs that unexpected touch, earrings like these will ensure everyone gives your outfit a genuine compliment.

Supersize Hoops

Give your dainty hoop earrings a break and invest in a large pair for 2020. The oversize style was spotted on the spring 2020 runways from designers like Carolina Herrera and Sies Marjan. Updated takes on the design include door-knocker styles like the Balenciaga ones and double hoops from Proenza Schouler. These hoops are all about standing out, not blending in.

Colorful Stones

Spring tends to bring a renewed energy to our wardrobes; we shed our puffers and ankle boots for barely-there sandals and whispery cotton dresses. To welcome sunnier days and add some cheer to your look, opt for bright baubles in various hues. Colorful accessories were plentiful on the runways and designers weren't afraid to play with proportions.

Shoe Jewelry

Jewelry isn't just for your wrists, ears, or neck anymore, as Bottega Veneta proved with its popular chain-adorned mesh pumps last season. For 2020, fashion houses like Oscar de la Renta and Zimmermann are continuing to honor this look by taking the liberty of adorning their own footwear with chains and other unexpected embellishments. Feeling crafty? DIY the style by looping a long chain around your ankles and through the strap of your sandals.
