Jewellery trends that will shine this summer
Everyone loves statement jewellery, no matter what you are wearing an outfit can be transformed with the simple addition of some sparkle.
This summer your favourite high street stores are letting you go that extra mile when it comes to adding glam to your wardrobe. Be on top of the fashion game with this season’s necklaces and chokers, rings, earrings and even watches.
Layer on layer
Pendant necklaces are everywhere and can be worn with both daytime and evening attire. Long chains with intricate pendants and jewels look great when teamed with a plain t-shirt or jumper, or layer up a couple of different length necklaces and create a simple yet striking effect.
Chokers are also a big hit - perfect when embellished with heavy jewels or simple studs. Whatever look you go for, you’re sure to stand out with these necklaces of the moment.
Stack it up
Gone are the days when you have to make the tough decision of what ring to wear. This trend lets you go wild with your choice, making your fingers look really fancy.
Stack a few of your favourites on top of one another or add a ring to alternate fingers to create a look that will make you the envy of all your friends, but make sure you don’t go over the top and mix it up with some sparkly gems and subtle bands.
If you are going to invest in any item of jewellery this season, go for earrings. From simple gold and silver studs to bright and bold pairs there’s plenty to choose from.
Hoops are so in and it’s a case of the bigger, the better! For an uber chic vibe team yours with a crisp white shirt and distressed skinny jeans, not forgetting a long intricate necklace to complete your look.
Ones to watch
With smart phones at the height of popularity it’s rare we use a watch to tell the time, but this year a wrist watch is a must have accessory – even if it is only to make a statement.
From metallic, retro pieces with leather straps to larger faced watches edged in faux diamonds and jewels, there’s a watch for any occasion and style.
