At some point last year, I realised I owned basically no jewellery. This had to change.
I’ve been accessorizing with one key necklace – favourites of the past year include the Apple (Topshop), Leaf (Accessorize), Rings (Topshop) and Cuckoo Clock (available here). They’re all gold and make a simple outfit a little more noticeable. People have stopped me upon occasion and asked where they’re from (which I found very flustering!)
With a new season, comes new trends, and unless you haven’t been to the shops/opened a magazine for the last few months, you’ll know that the two key pieces for this season are crosses and spikes.
I’m going to say it now. I don’t like the crosses and don’t think I’ll be purchasing any pieces with it on. Not that they’re horrible or anything (!) but just that…I’m not religious, and I know it doesn’t have to mean you are, but for me it’s not very appealing.
But I will be embracing the studded/spiked trend in jewellery. I try to buy clothes that I’ll be able to wear for a long time, so probably won’t be investing in much studded clothing (if anybody knows where to get a biker jacket without studs, I’m all ears!), but will be bringing my clothes up to date with jewellery.
These are my three most recent purchases and I’ve already worn the necklace loads! I love Topshop necklaces, however after lots of wear, the gold does start to rub off the chain leaving it half silver 😦 but it’s so pretty I can’t help myself!
What jewellery are you going to be wearing this winter?
