There is jewellery that suits trendy people – and then there’s jewellery that suits everyone. Forever. The trick is to focus first on pieces that work together and well as by themselves, then add pieces that standout in terms of colour or size. Of course, all your pieces – basics and statements – could reflect your own style.
And that’s why we’ve pulled together a list of jewellery that suits absolutely everyone. Simply choose metals or styles that work with your wardrobe, and you’ll have all the essentials to have fun with and build on. Here are our favourites…
A simple stud will make you look finished and polished. Look for something in either diamond, pearl or your favourite precious metal. They will work with anything and add the look of effort when you’ve actually thrown on your favourite jumper and run out the door.
We’ve spoken before about how there’s a hoop for everyone – but that’s because it’s true! It might be a simple silver sleeper or a big gold hoop; either way, they frame and elongate your face. Never a bad thing!
Long, pendant necklaces
There is nothing better to liven up a t-shirt and jeans or finish off a cocktail frock. The long pendant necklace is an indispensable part of your accessories wardrobe. Very popular in the ‘20s and ‘30s (especially pearls!), the look has made a resurgence and firmly cemented itself as a classic. It’s the perfect piece for layering too, so load ‘em up!
A simple bangle is the bracelet equivalent of the diamond stud earring. Wear it every day with any outfit and it will work. Stack it with other bracelets or leave it on its own. And don’t be afraid to invest here, because you’ll get daily use out of it.
