I’ve been talking about wardrobe updates on the blog this month as it seems appropriate with the coming of Spring. Today I’m focusing on another way you can update your wardrobe, and that is through the jewellery you wear. Jewellery can completely change the look of an outfit, taking it from every day wear to being evening appropriate just through the addition of something sparkly or a real statement necklace. In addition, if you have a little black dress in your wardrobe, this can pretty much take you to every occasion depending on the jewellery you choose.
I am a little obsessed with statement necklaces. I love the fact that you can wear one with a plain t-shirt and jeans, and suddenly the outfit no longer looks casual, and instead is very sophisticated. When wearing a statement necklace keep the rest of your jewellery to a minimum and let that key piece do all the talking. Dorothy Perkins has some fantastic and affordable statement necklaces at the moment, with some great discounts too.
Wearing a Watch
Even for those who don’t generally wear jewellery, a watch is often the exception to the rule. I love feminine watches, rather than those with fairly masculine big faces and fastenings. Babla’s jewellers currently have a fabulous range of watches, and I particularly love the DKNY selection, which has a selection of styles and metals to suit all tastes.
From Edie Sedgwick, to Kate Moss and Beyonce, style icons have been showing that nothing looks more glamorous or elegant than an updo and a pair of sweeping chandelier earrings. Next have some really great examples this season, these range from designers in diamante with a real Hollywood feel, to boho styles that will look brilliant with your cut off jeans come festival season.
