Favourite Summer Jewellery Trends

Jewellery can make or break an outfit - sometimes a statement necklace can add much needed 'pazazz' to a simple dress or being minimalistic may be best for a sleek look. 

These are my fave 3 jewellery trends for the summer:

As the notoriously icy Miranda Priestly points out in the ultimate chick flick The Devil Wears Prada, florals in spring/summer collections aren't exactly ground breaking. BUT the likes of Pixie Lott and Millie Mackintosh prove that you can achieve a totally sweet yet sophisticated look by combining wardrobe staples like a simple black playsuit with lively floral accessories like a headband of flowers or a statement necklace. I also love love love embracing my inner forest fairy by livening up a messy bun with a pair of ornate earrings - Topshop is my ultimate go-to for perfecting this look. It would almost be a crime to neglect your fingers of flower power in the summer months so I love embellishing my hands with dainty, floral rings broken up by stacking simple & neutral rings inbetween for a totally unique look each time. 


Bohemian Chic:
With festival season now it full swing, many of us have found ourselves donning the dry shampoo, digging our Daisy Dukes and dancing the summer away in our wellies. This season is the hub of boho glam ala Vanessa Hudgens, who's often seen floating around Melrose like a total Bohemian Goddess - think flowing maxis and oversized earrings for an effortless take on this classic look. I often find myself teaming fringed tops and flowing dresses with overstated necklaces and chunky bangles to add a touch of glamour to a laid back look. 


Minimal Monochrome:
Let's face it girls, black is never going out of fashion. I've found that stripping back my wardrobe to basics with monochrome shades has been an effortless way to add a touch of added class to everyday looks. Victoria Beckham is my ultimate style crush when it comes to wearing black and white, somehow she manages to transform basic colours for drastically drab to seriously chic - no one does monochrome better than Queen V. 


Much love,
