Where else do you look for the current fashion, best how-to-wear guide and on-trend jewellery? We took a look at the coolest autumn/winter jewellery trends making their debut on the streets of London Fashion Week.
Fresh from the streets of London, insta-stars, bloggers and fashion queens are styling this seasons must-have jewellery. From big hoop earrings to chunky chain necklaces, these trends are beautifully simple and easy to incorporate into your jewellery rotation.
The streets of London were glistening in the autumn sun thanks to big, bold, gold hoop earrings paired with grande chunky checks.
Hoop earrings have clean silhouettes that are fresh, fun and easy to wear. Instead of the classic dainty hoop earrings, opt for big curves in gold for on-trend autumn/winter 2018 vibes - the bigger the better. What a better way to accessorise your winter check coat?
