While this trend might have you flashing back to visits to the doctors, rhinestone masks made their way onto the runway, and it’s one of our favorite new ways to incorporate drama into a look. Not only is it an accessory we’re not used to seeing on the runway, it’s also a unique way to add a coordinating detail into a design.

2. Dramatic Rhinestone Earrings

If the above 2020 fashion trend is a little too unconventional for your taste, you’ll be happy to know that dramatic earrings were also seen at Fashion Week 2020.

Designs range from striking earrings that still feel very wearable for the everyday woman, as shown below.

However, there’s also more unconventional earring designs that feel more geared towards women who are comfortable with over-the-top designs and styles.

Regardless, if you’re looking to design earrings using fashion trends in 2020, you can’t go wrong when adding dramatic rhinestones to your design.

3. Rhinestone Hair Accessories

If you read our article about the growing popularity of rhinestone hair accessories, you probably won’t be too surprised to discover that hair accessories are one of the top Autumn/Winter fashion trends you can expect to see popping up in the coming months.

While we love the idea of adding rhinestones to clothing, don’t forget, you can really add rhinestones to any fashion piece: shoes, handbags, and even sunglasses! 

In fact, rhinestone sunglasses are a fashion trend for 2020 that we’re excited to start seeing in stores. This design detail has a cool futuristic vibe, along with a rock ‘n roll edge that’s very on trend for 2020. 

5. Rhinestone Brooches

While the idea of a brooch might seem a little old fashion or something that your grandma might wear, it’s time to change your thinking, because glittering rhinestone brooches are making their way into the mainstream as a top Autumn/Winter 2020 trend. 


If a brooch doesn’t seem like something that will suit your clientele, you can also experiment with brooch style necklaces with a Victorian flair, as shown below.
