Statement evening earrings

When you need to add a bit of wow-factor to your outfit, opt for a standout pair of earrings. And we’re not talking studs; think chandelier earrings, drop earrings or even ear jackets.

Every jewellery collection should feature at least one dainty necklace that you can wear every single day and never worry about whether it matches your outfit. A simple gold necklace with subtle sparkle will look just as chic with a slouchy white tee as it will with an LBD.

Hoops can be classy too, but you have to do them right. Opt for either a thinner, larger hoop or a hammered finish for ultimate femininity and elegance. Top tip; hoops always look chicer with a messy topknot or ponytail.

Stackable rings

Stacking rings seem to be forever growing in popularity and we can totally see why. Wear them singularly for a pretty and subtle accent or stack them together for maximum impact.

A strand of pearls

You simply can’t go wrong with pearls, whether it’s a pair of studs or a classic string of pearls, they are our go-to item for a lady-like, sophisticated look.

A completely timeless piece that pleases the magpie in most of us!
