Guest post: Must have jewellery pieces this summer
The right piece of jewellery can make an outfit and the wrong one can really break it. It can be difficult to strike a balance when matching perfect pieces for your outfits whether you’re struggling to find the right level of glamour for a particular occasion, or you want to inject a bit of elegance into your everyday look.
When it comes to jewellery the rule I always follow is that less is always more, so here’s a few select pieces that will be all you need to nail every look this summer!
Go dainty on the neck wear
I love a statement jewelled necklace as much as the next girl, but this summer is all about the more elegant neck wear. A dainty necklace is ideal because it can be worn both to the office or on a big girl’s night out. It can be really tempting to build a huge collection of cheap and ultimately throwaway costume jewellery, but it will cost you more in the long run! Try and build individual pieces from independent designers and smaller retailers instead. Brands like Theo Fennell create quaint, pretty pieces that will last a lifetime.
I personally am I sucker for stacking rings. With so many out there at the moment, there’s no excuse for bare hands! You can mix and match your favourite styles and clash materials to take full advantage of this trend. Try Accessorize for some sterling silver varieties that won’t break your bank, but won’t turn your fingers green either!
The ultimate statement of luxury is a pair of statement earrings. Earrings can dress up an outfit instantly with very little effort, taking your look from zero to glam straight away. I love the collection online at ASOS at the moment, like the dreamcatcher earrings pictured. If they’re a bit out there for your taste, try a simple pair of diamond studs. Remember that when you’re buying diamonds, it’s crucial to make sure they are responsibly sourced and from a reputable dealer. Alternatively, there are numerous websites now where you get to select a pair of diamonds online to create your dream pair of earrings!
To sum it up
Summertime is the perfect season to experiment with your style and make a daring statement with your choice of jewellery. If you’re heading off to a festival or away on holiday, it’s the perfect time to show off your statement pieces. The key is to look for unique things that take a piece of jewellery from brash to beautiful!
