are you ready for “indie sleaze” and the silver jewelry trend this spring 2022?
It’s a truism that in fashion, everything eventually cycles back into style again. Recently, we’ve seen the return of all things ‘90s and Y2K from butterfly motifs to low-rise jeans to crop tops. It’s been called Indie Sleaze and according to trend analyst Mandy Lee, it’s all about an “effortless, party-in-the-moment” vibe when carefree maximalism was at its peak. You know, before every moment had to be documented on Instagram or TikTok.[white_box]

I graduated college and moved to New York City during this era so this particular style is seared into my memory. And to be honest, I can’t help but cringe. But one element of the trend we can get behind is the comeback of silver jewelry. The cool-toned metal was everywhere on the Spring/Summer 2022 runways: Balenciaga, Jonathan Simkhai, Givenchy, Paco Rabanne, and Prada, to name a few.
This isn’t the commonplace silver mall jewelry of our youth. It suddenly feels fresh again — lending itself to an elevated and sculptural mood. Some pieces have an edgier look with subversive punk rock vibes. And it’s also a perfect complement to organic, bohemian mixed-media styles.
In this edit, we’ve curated some stunning sterling silver and white gold pieces to diversify your jewelry collection. From necklaces, earrings, bracelets to rings, here are our top picks of the season.
