Bigger is clearly better when it comes to logos as far as the world's biggest runways are concerned. And it's not just clothing where we're seeing oversized logos either - the trend has made its way into the jewellery box, too.

Emporio Armani cufflinks

These Emporio Armani cufflinks (£75) proudly flaunt the designer brand's emblematic eagle logo, and are perfect for guys that want to add a bit of personality to their business suit or occasion wear.

Made from sturdy stainless-steel, they feature a silver and black colour scheme, giving them an ultra-smart finish.

Rhodium Plated Iconic Swan necklace

If you're willing to stick your neck out for fashion, then Rhodium Plated Iconic Swan necklace from Swarovski (£69) will help you stand out.

Featuring a black, jewel-encrusted depiction of the brands iconic swan logo, it's a beautiful piece that can be teamed with both glamourous and more casual outfits to make a design statement, wherever you are.

Chandelier earrings

Silver Plated 3 pack crystal earrings

Look modern by throwing back to fashion icons like Edie Sedgewick! Chandelier earrings are another loud look destined for big things in 2018. Instantly adding glamour to your chosen ensemble, they're a great choice for a big night out or glittering special occasion.

This 3-pack of beautiful jewelled earrings from Lipsy (£14) contains a gorgeous pair of chandelier earrings, as well as some mini hoops and studs that you can swap out for a more casual effect.

Gold Plated Chandelier Ear Jackets

Embrace an art-deco take on the Chandelier look and opt for a striking pair of gold plated ear jackets (£29) from Fossil.

Featuring shimmering jewels and a gold-plated finish, they're designed to peek out from beneath your ear to bring a touch of unexpected shine to your outfit.

Punk rock

Punk is making a comeback, and fashion designers seem to be looking to the late 70s and early 80s for inspiration, when bands like The Sex Pistols dominated the charts and everyone wanted to look like a rock star.

Skull and Bones Bracelet

Icon has always had a rebellious streak, and this eye-catching skull and bones bracelet (£15) captures everything gritty and glorious about the Punk trend. Featuring a cheeky chattering skull and a black and blue bracelet, it looks the part when paired with ripped denim and a baggy tee.

Mens Icon Brand Jewellery One Too Many Necklace

For a really edgy punk rock look, Icon's One Too Many necklace (£20) has plenty of attitude. Featuring two gold coloured sword pendants, as well as a cross and a stud, it has a distressed look that carries through nicely with the shabby leather necklace. Pair it up with dark jeans and a vintage checked shirt for a cool, casual look.

Oversized hoops

We've spotted plenty of models accessorising with huge, oversized hooped earrings. And there's been no shortage of A-listers seen rocking the trend either, with Selena Gomez, J-Lo, and Rihanna all seen out in force rocking giant hoops.

PVD Gold Plated Crystal Sprinkle Large Hoop Earrings

Karen Millen is embracing the look with this stunning pair of PVD gold plated crystal sprinkle hoops (£60). The pretty gold band is encrusted with a smattering of shimmering jewels, making these the ideal choice when you want to shine. Pair them up with a little black dress for a drop dead glamourous ensemble.

Big pearls

If one word could describe the many trends for 2018, it would have to be big: big logos, big hoops, and… Big pearls!

Pearls are back with a punch, leaving their mark all over the fashion world. And you can embrace the trend with earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that feature oversized gemstones, to add a bit of drama to your outfit.

Ted Baker Gold Plated Giant Pearl Cluster Necklace

Get the look with this elegant gold plated giant pearl cluster necklace (£79) from Ted Baker. Adorned with a cluster of shiny pearls that are clinging to a beautiful gold-plated necklace, you can make a glamorous statement by pairing them with your favourite cocktail dress for a night on the town to remember.
