Understanding your accessories is just as important as picking out your outfit for the day, the right jewellery will always finish off your ensemble perfectly. From statement necklaces to midi rings, here’s what your jewellery box should involve…
These long necklaces are the most effortless way to ensure your look is polished. They add so much to a plain blouse and update a jeans and tee outfit in an instant. We often snap these up in the mid-season sales as pendants never really go out of style – this Orelia Anchor Pendant Necklace (£10) is just what your jewellery collection is missing. It will sit over cute summer dresses and really bring so much to a striped top.
Stacking and swapping rings can add some substance to your outfit, and the midi rings that sit around the knuckles always look so chic.
To stock up on simple bands and other rings, head to Forever 21. The store sell packs and packs of rings so you can get your hands on more than a few for just a couple of pounds – we love this F21 Ring Set (£3.50) for keeping our digits on trend throughout the seasons.
Buy a couple of sets and keep them on hand for last-minute accessorising each and every day. If you’re still on the hunt for pretty finger bling, may we suggest this adorable River Island Kitten Ears Ring (£3)?
Chunky, attention-grabbing necklaces really make a statement – we love layering them up over an otherwise very minimal outfit. Chain collars, chokers and even big bib necklaces all work to update your look and even give it a very smart finish, perfect for making that casual skinny jeans and sandals outfit look more work appropriate.
Go for a vintage vibe with this ASOS Triangle Choker (£8), we love the simple design against the black material.
Of course, we all need a few pieces that will stand out. From spiked ear cuffs to boyfriend watches, these items will all work on their own to channel your style.
We adore this ASOS Leaf Cuff Bracelet (£12), it’s a little something different that you can wear for any occasion. Tie in your jewellery to your makeup to really make a point, we love pairing gold jewellery with red lips or even shimmery eyes for maximum impact.
Pin back your hair in to a Amber Heard-inspired ‘do and wear an ear cuff like this River Island Encrusted Cuff (£6).
