The hottest fashion craze, if we are looking at the Fashion Week parades, was not about clothes or shoes, but jewelry tattoos. What is it? This year, the jewelry is replaced by masterpieces of body art - temporary tattoos made of silver or gold that perfectly resemble the metal jewelry. The new accessory that can accompany the real jewels or be worn alone quickly became a must-have of the season.
Providing a striking visual effect, jewelry tattoos are the new hit. These trompe-l'oeil are easy to wear and ideal for creating a unique look, whether for your casual office attire or for a weekend at the beach, to go to a rock concert or for an elegant evening party. This very decorative pieces of gold or silver jewelry, tattoos come in the form of delicate chain bracelets, necklaces, or feathers that seem to float on the skin.
Jewelry tattoos have become such a hot trend that during the recent months, we have seen them on lots of celebrities and prominent fashion figures like Carolina Herrera Baez and Aerin Lauder, but also in the street. We saw them on partygoers like Vanessa Hudgens and Alessandra Ambrosio, while Colbie Caillat and Sarah Jessica Parker have walked with them on the red carpet.
The trend has become a fashion when designers like Tommy Hilfiger have sent their models wearing temporary tattooed jewelry designs on the catwalk. Beyoncé is a promoter of the trend through its collaboration with Temptu. The star put on several Flash Tats models as she celebrated her 33th birthday in Italy and later shared a series of body art photos on her website.
So how do they work? The application process is very similar to that of an ordinary temporary tattoo. Tattoos adhere to the skin after about 30 seconds of pressure with a damp cloth. It takes only 10 minutes to apply the tattoo completely, and your optical illusion sequined jewelry lasts for a few days!
What jewelry tattoo choose? One that goes best with your personal style. Then, you can think about layering pieces. Think of a false cuff sneaking out of a stack of delicate bracelets or sitting quietly next to an oversized watch. The idea is that it creates an illusion, so that seeing people ask "What is it? Jewelry or a tattoo? "
