Every time we need to perk up our outfits, accessories like jewelry come to the rescue. With the right chunky necklace or pair of sparkly statement earrings, your blazer/dress/sweater looks even more stylish. And now it's a new year, so jewelry offerings are bound to be plentiful and fresh, like your favorite 2020 handbags or shoes. We've gone ahead and pinpointed the six jewelry trends to know for next 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.

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.
If you loved the Balenciaga door knocker earrings on the runway, here's a similar version from Natia x Lako. They're a powerful and charming accessory to your Monday through Friday outfits.
If door knockers aren't for you (maybe you want to start off with something more minimalist first), these oversized hoops from Bottega will get your feet wet. They're crafted in Italy and made to look like gilded bamboo, so they're not just your average rounded hoops.

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.
These earrings were made to stand out and receive all the compliments from your coworkers. If they don't feel work-appropriate to you, however, save them for that upcoming wedding you've RSVP'ed to.
Brighten up any dark winter outfit with this coral-colored floral and pearl necklace. The weather might be 20 degrees right now, but this hue is keeping our spirits, and mood, up.

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.
You can go light on the jewelry up top when you slip into these Jacquemus sandals. The dangling embellishments around the heels will create enough intrigue to turn heads as you enter the room.
This eye-catching animal print and chain detail shoe is already in my checkout cart. I plan to wear it with tights in the winter and under a cute little midi dress for spring once the weather warms up.

I, for one, am glad pearls are here to stay for another season. For this year, expect to see designers create sculptural shapes out of this object in addition to embracing a pearl's more natural shape like the earrings spotted at Jason Wu. Whether you decide to go with faux or real pearl pieces, they all add a touch of femininity and timelessness to your outfits.
I might just treat myself to these classy earrings for my birthday next month. The clip-on style is perfect for both pierced and non-pierced ears alike and gives off an air of sophistication and dressiness.
This necklace will easily be the center of attention in any outfit. Instead of wearing it solo, layer on some of your favorite thin gold chains to build an enviable necklace stack.

Statement-making jewelry won't be hard to find this year thanks to the big chain energy. Oversize gold chokers and lucite necklaces ruled the necks of models at the spring 2020 shows. If you're going out, opt for glittery silver links to dress up your outfit like the one spotted at Brandon Maxwell, above. The chunky chains, which comes in bracelet forms too, work equally as well for the office, when you need an easy style hack to dress up a sweater and jeans.
This silver-tone choker is edgy and cool, so you don't need to dress it up much. Style with a muted top to show off the power of this accessory.
Chloé girls will love the padlock and key charm details that mimic the label's "Aby" handbag. If you're not too keen on looping a giant chain around your neck, this lightweight bracelet is your intro into the chunky chain trend.

Rocking a single earring isn't a completely new concept but the trend is still alive and well for another year. Fashion houses from the ones you see above to Tibi, JW Anderson, and Oscar de la Renta all accessorized their ensembles with one large statement earring, proving this way of dressing is still fresh and relevant. If you've been hesitant to try this look in the past, maybe this is the year you conquer this trend. We believe in you.
This crystal-embellished triangle stud with fringing is the piece that will glamour to your going-out ensemble. Debut it during the next birthday dinner you're invited to.
To be honest, this buckle earring made me laugh and piqued my interest at the same time. (I've decided I love it and I want it.) If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind design to add to your jewelry collection, this baby's it.
