Crystal Embellishment Trends 2017

From the everyday to the runway, crystal embellishments are set to be huge in 2017. Over the past few weeks, labels worldwide have been sporting glittery and glitzy adornments. They can be seen on just about everything, including shoes, handbags, dresses, jewelry and more. 

Today we’re going to take a look at six of the most influential and stunning labels, along with how they’re embracing the crystal-embellished trend.


Marchesa has always been known for its glamour and utmost elegance. The label’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection in particular showcased floral prints made of colored crystals, along with black crystals and pearls hand-stitched into the bedazzling designs.

Fit for a princess (or a ballerina straight off the Bolshoi stage), Marchesa’s take on crystal embellishments will have you longing to embrace the trend for your formalwear.

For example, this top featuring “tulle sleeves embellished with crystals in shimmering hues” has become one of the standout pieces from the recent collection.

Fendi’s crystal-adorned sunglasses have got us head-over-heels in love. The designer proves that the crystal-embellished trend is certainly a versatile one. The theme extends beyond clothing and jewelry and into the eyewear realm. It’s also a wonderful example of how this sparkle trend needn’t be over-the-top.
