Jewellery doesn’t need to be something that you throw on at the last minute. By carefully co-ordinating your jewellery with your outfits you can enhance your personal style to make you feel great, whatever the occasion!
We show you how to pick the right jewellery for the right occasion – to give your look an instant style update. Well look at all the options no matter what your budget, to help you make the right fashion choices and bring a fresh and contemporary jewellery update to your wardrobe.
When it comes to accessorising you work outfits, the key is to keep it simple! If you work in an office, you want your jewellery to be uncomplicated, unfussy and stylish so that you exude professionalism and make a great impression.
Excessive wrist wear such as a charm bracelet or stacking bangles can be an annoyance, particularly if you work at a computer, so why not try some delicate stacking rings or this season’s minimalist jewellery essential – a gold signet ring complete with your initial.
In terms of neckwear we normally opt for a single disc pendant on a delicate chain, or simple hearts and abstract organic shapes in sterling silver or gold will also work well with your office attire… just remember to keep it classy and that less is more!
If you are going out straight after work, you may want to add a touch of sparkle. One our favourite day-into-night looks is a pave-set disc pendant with diamonds or cubic zirconia, which looks classy in the day and brings a touch of sophistication in the evening.
For the weekend
When the weekend comes, it is best to choose a more relaxed and informal jewellery designs that compliment your end of the week vibe! The key to this look is to not try too hard.
Whether you are spending the weekend with friends or just relaxing on your own or with family, try picking jewellery that expresses your character best and be playful in your jewellery choices.
Our favourite weekend look is a relaxed gold necklace with a simple white t-shirt and faded jeans. The faded look of light blue denim goes perfectly with gold jewellery for a relaxed fashion update. If you are feeling more adventurous, try layering this with a long necklaces over your t-shirt and a dainty choker that hugs your neckline.
This season’s jewellery trends are dominated by contemporary pearl jewellery, which also work well with a low key weekend outfit. Try a pair of large gold pearl hoops or some cute pearl hair clips for on on-trend look.
If you want to make more impact with minimal effort try choosing a single statement necklace to enhance your look. The fashion catwalks are full of exaggerated choker necklaces that feature oversized and irregular shaped chain links. This must-have piece is not only on-trend but is the perfect way to make a unique style statement and elevate any outfit from casual to chic.
For a special occasion
Whatever the special occasion, it is worth taking a little extra time to pick and co-ordinate your jewellery to complete your look. For a romantic evening such as Valentine’s Day or an anniversary meal with your partner, opt for subtle and low key jewellery that highlights your features… your jewellery should definitely not steal the show!
If you are celebrating your birthday and want all eyes on you, a diamond-set initial pendant will ensure that you are the star of the show. Try layering this pendant with a longer length necklace with evenly spaced clear stones, that will perfectly compliment a little black dress and a killer pair of heels!
For a holiday
Whether you are on a mini-break, taking your annual vacation or going travelling around the world, it’s important to travel light. Before you go, try to pick a selection of 3-4 minimalist necklaces that won’t take up too much space in the suitcase and can be worn alone or layered to create many different looks
This layered look is perfect for a beach holiday and works particularly well with this season’s Instagram favourite – a gold coin necklace. Try adding some gold bangles complete with meaningful charms for a more bohemian holiday vibe.
If you are off on a city-break make sure you take a jewellery travel pouch that will keep your favourite jewels looking pristine when you’re not wearing them. Avoid showy jewellery that will attract unwanted attention and opt for simple silver or gold stud earrings with a simple and chic tennis bracelet.
For a wedding
Most wedding, bridal and bridesmaids jewellery is subtle elegant and minimalist, but if you are attending a wedding as a guest you can afford to be a bit more creative with the jewellery you pick.
Most weddings are in the summer so opt for subtle gemstone jewellery in pastel hues. Rose quartz with rose gold creates a look that is cute and girly, but if you want to channel your inner Grecian Goddess opt for a simple ring or pendant in Amazonite and yellow gold to let your personality shine!
