I blame everything on Instagram these days, including the rise of #yellowmellow from an insta hashtag to in IRL – as the yellow color trend of 2018. I don’t mind it one bit, in fact according to my sign, #lioness its part of my color palette next to orange and red, so who’s complaining. Not to mention it’s such a summer symbol, which again is so me #summerchild, that I’m more than sold on this summer 2018 trend. And it looks great in photos. Besides, style wise no matter what you wear yellow will look good on you, it’s a matter of hue and whether or not you wear one item or drape yourself in lemonade. No?

Just bare with me throughout this post as we’ll go on the ride of your freaking lemonade summer life, and discuss HOW to wear yellow this season AND look fab!

If you don’t believe me, or Instagram, you’d better believe designers, cause their SS2018 collections had yellow in them through and through.

1.Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: DRESSES

I mean… just think Beyonce’s Lemonade yellow dress and let’s just all go home and cry of happiness. The best yellow outfits for summer are dresses: fluid, flirty, fitted, shift, shirt, midi length, maxis, or minis, in tiny prints, or solids, worn with espadrilles, heels, or sneakers.

2. Head-to-toe YELLOW OUTFITS: In more pieces

If dresses ain’t your shtick, OR you are one of those gals who looove to spend time on outfits and are the least laziest fashion person out there, (God I wish I knew what that was like), well then… it’s yellow outfits in 2, 3, 4, or 23,456 pieces for you. Skirts, shorts, tops of all sorts paired together regardless of style or cut, as long as they’re all yellow. It don’t even need to be the same yellow shade. In fact, I think the more shades and yellow hues the more it’ll all be sophisticated. From bright yellow to mustard yellow to more orange or muted and pastel styles – every lemon inspired color out there is your bestie this season.

Keep the rest simple, speaking of basic dressing here, and let yellow mellow shine through. Personalty I love either very casual laid back summer yellow outfits worn with nude comfy shoes, OR more polished yellow looks that look amazing with posh white slides or black minimal details.

BUT, yellow does look amazing against other colors, and we do live in a free fashion world, so if you wanna wear red shoes, green lips, or pink bags – go for it. It’ll definitely look fab for Instagram.

3. ‘I’ll have just one yellow thing please!’

Not everyone is such a yellow or a mellow kinda human… and some fashion lovers go by the mantra less is more, and make a bigger style splash with just one yellow item rather than wear the lemonade of the entire world at once. Yellow looks absolutely beautiful worn with blue denim, either jeans, or denim skirts or shirts. It’s one of the best combos if you ask me, worn either with heels or flat shoes.

Yellow anything also looks great against white and black, like a minimal clean outfit.

Again, if you’re an adventurous soul and love color blocking pair a yellow top with a pair of electric blue pants, or a red skirt. Do your thing.


 

Truth is, 2018 summer is a lot about color, big, bold, bright, solid shades of red, orange, yellow, pink, blues, greens… you get it. Designers are embracing these colors not just for this hot season but for fall 2018 as well…. so it makes perfect sense that each and every bold shade has its fans. And since summer is about fresh bright sunny days… Yellow Mellow lemonade is a winner.

What do you think? Do you actually like wearing yellow?

Sometimes the best things in life come in small sizes. Of course as a maximalist I’ve never found that to be true. I mean I’ll always get the larger coke and bigger pizza, the big house, the big necklace… the big party, the large ego… you get it. Yet… when it comes to 2018 latest fad, I am quite a small size lover. Of shades, people. Of shades.  From my recent post about small sunglasses, and my insta stories about them – people are not big fans. So… alone in my small sunglasses predicament I was actually wondering where in the world can I, or anyone who loves them too, could buy them.

You know them: those smaller than an asshole’s brain sunglasses, in black, blue, red, orange that casually stat the top of your nose, an match some sassy bored attitude, a la Kendall Jenner & co par example.

Without further ado here are the bestest small sunglasses ever. I mean… I love them, and I just think the Topshop ones and the Adam Seldam ones are beyond insane.

If there’s one thing AW18 collections had – that’s a busy beautiful head. From Prada, to Gucci, to Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana fashion is giving us, yet again a free pass to wearing scarves a billion ways, from our long necks, and tiny wrists… to our heads, and hairstyles. Hence the headscarf trend of 2018 spring!

First time in my life I ever consciously acknowledged a headscarf was probably when I was around 6 or so and I noticed my grandma always always wore one. She said that’s how the fashion was back in the day, and that’s how she was used to it. Plus she gave 0 fucks about her hairstyle. Of course she wore it in that Queen Elizabeth style, 50s, retro, tied either under the chin, or at the back of her head. No wild ponytail nor cool sunglasses.

These days all is in. Even Khaleesi dragons a la Gucci, or MacQueen face glam masks. So, at this point Dolce & Gabbana’s vision of a headscarf for the past 5 years or so seems pretty cool and decent.

Headscarves are both a throwback fashion moment as well as a culture thing, like in my grandma’s case, like in other nations or religions.

But the queens of headscarves to me remain: all the black ladies, Eva Mendes, and my grandma. So in case you have no idea on how to wear a head-scarf just peak into this bowl of inspiration.

Why would you wear a headscarf?

  • dirty hair
  • bad haircut
  • bad hair day
  • 0 fucks about the hair situation

OR you could actually love how it looks on you and thus it becomes a little style statement that brings a whole look together, or that turns an otherwise boring outfit into a more vibrant and chic one.

How to wear a headscarf in 2018?

Maybe there’re not a million or billion ways to wear a headscarf, nonetheless there are a few.

THE BUN – tie a scarf around your sleek or messy hair-bun and get an instant summer chic style. Pair this look with some bold earrings, like golden hoops and a pair of sunglasses. You can wear a maxi dress, an off the shoulders top with jeans, or even a blazer and a more classic outfit.

THE LOW PONYTAIL: tie a scarf around your low loose ponytail, and leave the ends out. This is a very French chic look that goes best with a plaid blazer, a spaghetti strap dress, a pair of culottes and birkinstocks.

THE HIGH MESSY PONYTAIL: did anyone call me? This is perfect for when you’re hair’s all acting up, OR you just don’t know what to do with it anymore and you and up wearing it in a high ponytail #storyofmylife, but you also feel kinda meh and basic for not doing more, so… ta-daa the head-scarf. It’s such a summer vibe effortless and very chic style gimmick. Tie a colourful scarf around you ponytail and leave the ends loose. It’s free and careless and looks amazing with anything.

THE DOLCE & GABBANA HEADSCARF: Bella Italia and Sicily and pasta and Monica Bellucci and Bianca Balti, and loud grandmas and cool boys on scooters. A million earrings, a lace dress, a black summer dress, a pair of sunglasses – this is the D&G look. Tie the scarf around your head, like a head-band, leaving the back open.

THE 50s STYLE: aka my grandma all the way. Tie the scarf either under your chin or at the back of your head. Still… you might not wanna look like a 70 year old woman so take the retro vibe with a dash of 2018, and use Queen Elizabeth’s scarves as inspiration. #wacththecrown Wear bold lips, cool sunglasses, a trench coat, popped collars, gloves, high heels, a mix of today and old Hollywood style.

THE FULL ON LOOK: I mean… if you have a gorgeous face, hide that hair and flaunt those features. Hello Eva Mendes, and Zendaya, or Solange. Confident, sexy women are wearing headscarves everywhere, red carpet included. It is such a powerful look, I love it. Use a printed silk massive scarf, watch a ton of tutorials on how to tie it, rock some red lips and insane earrings and you are the queen!!!

Powersuits as powerdressig is a major trend in 2018. Sure, we’ve been dressing in powersuits in the 90s as well as 2000s, so what is changed?

Powersuits for 2018 embody everything: they’re sleek, but also slouchy, classic but so edgy, the blazer is massive, big shoulders, cinged at the waist, incredibly fashion forward in both cut as well as colour or print. However, the key lies in how we wear them, and the fact that a business look these days is also a fashion, social, and personal message.

The powersuit is 80s iconic, and if we’re to quickly pinpoint to the latest trends of 2018 fall fashion week, both the 80s, as well as power-dressing aka powersuits stand out. Sure, that’s for fall next year, but that don’t mean we can’t start practicing. In fact we’ve been unconsciously doing 80s for the past year: dressing, movies, music. So why stop now?

Personally I kinda like all the kitsch and the drama of late 80s, and don’t get me started on broad shoulders, cinged waists, big earrings, slouchy boots, and bold lips. 80s are so iconic for women’s rights, and the rise of women in business which of course led to power-dressing. It was an awakening decade socially, politically, and of course fashion wise, cause nothing ever happens in the world without it being reflected in fashion. Hence today’s #metoo movements and the rise yet again of 80s and 80s trends in 2018 fashion week, alongside minimal dressing, or men inspired looks and styles, like men designer shirts or suits.

While all is *still* in, there are a few styles of powersuits for 2018 that stand out and make a strong case for their trendiness.

1.PASTEL POWERSUITS.

It’s like mixing coffee and milk, night and day, powerful and dainty. Baby blues, pinks, and mint greens or light yellows look amazing in either powersuits that’re more classic, or the more oversized, masculine styles.

2. CHECKS & PINSTRIPES

How to look like a million bucks, like you give no fucks, like you rule the mf world, like you ooze sophistication and strength mixed with extra coolness, like you’re the queen of 80s in 2018 fashion? Put on a check print powersuit, slightly oversized, big shoulders, cinge it at the waist and go!

OR, if you’re more of a pinstripe kinda gal… go for pinstripe powersuits paired with great shoes. Like sleek kitten heel boots in red, or white.

3. OVERSIZED POWERSUITS

It’s the key cut of the 2018, the more a blazer is massive, the more we’ll love it. Same stands for pants. Mix the big suit with a cool crop top, a lace bra-top, something very cheeky that just peaks from underneath, and have fun with belts.

If you fear it’ll swallow and spit your right out (the suit), chose Tom Ford or Versace 2018 spring styles: tight high waisted pants aka leggings paired with the best tailored blazers in the world. Long, big shoulders, strong cuts, cinged waists.

4. DOULBE BREASTED POWERSUITS.

It’s retro, masculine, sophisticated, empowering, it looks cool and feels effortless especially when paired with more glamorous pieces: massive earrings, bold lips, heels.

5. CINGED WAISTS. 

Uhm… hello, the 80s called, they want their belts back. And I ain’t giving them nothing back. I used to love love love this look in the movies or in old fashion catalogues, so I’m actually kinda thrilled it’s back and we can all start channeling our inner 80s goddess. No matter how big the powersuits, how old, how dated, once you belt it you killed it. In a good way.

6. COLOURED POWERSUITS.

Powersuits are a classic piece, so when you mix them (style, cut, print) with something more edgy or fashion forward it instantly lifts their fashion vibe to this new chic and sophisticated piece that although old, feels brand new. So if you wanna look super formal, professional but still put your fashion mark and statement in our outfit – pick a bold coloured classic cut suit. Red, blue, purples and yellows are huge this season as well as next.

TIPS and street style:

In 2018 you can wear the powersuits however you please, either as a very formal classic outfit, OR just have fun with it, and go for weird cut, funky prints and fab style combinations. Not to mention you can break it down and wear the pants and/or the blazer separately.

Are sweats the new jeans? Are they so trendy and versatile we can literally trade any outfit for a sweats outfits and pull it off anywhere, and everywhere? Regardless of age, season, or personal style? Hmmmm. People… I am inclined to say YES to all the above, except maybe office days. Yeah. Those don’t work well with a sweats outfits no matter how chic, cool, luxe, athletic sophisticated it may all look. Unless of course you’re working in some creative job, or you’re wearing Gucci. Then you can fuck the ignoramuses and work that hobo-chic-and-fit style.

Anyway… sweats outfits wise it’s all crystal clear to me: they have become such a casual staple, courtesy of those athleisure trends, and of the 80s comeback that it’s the go-to-outfit for 1) running errands, 2) going shopping, 3) brunch, or 4) any cool casual style you wanna pull off one day. Even if you’re not staying home or just going to the gym.

The sweats look has been happening for a while, but I always thought it might be just a fad you know. Like those people who get gym memberships but only show up a few times a month, until they just slack on it. #didyousaysomethingtome

But no. Sweats outfits are here to stay. More so the sweats styles have evolved so much, the way we chose to wear them, where we chose to wear them seem to multiply literally by the minute. Each blogger, celebrity, peasant, stand-by-er, lover of style, hater of sports – they each have a cool new way to wear their sweats, and when all of these come together it’s really a great walking sweats moodboard out there.

So my answer to the Q above is full on yes.

However… HOW do we actually wear sweats outfits to look cool and chic like a casually rich person who has fab style but can’t be bothered on a lazy Saturday?

Here’s a 6 ways guide to pulling off sweats outfits anywhere.

1. Pick a great sweats set.

After all, it’ll be la piece de resistance in your look so you might as well invest in it, not financially speaking, just effort wise.

If you’re new to the game got for classic styles like black adidas, or grey soft sweats sets. Keep it simple, and very easy to style by itself or/and with a coat or a leather jacket.

If you love the soft-luxe but laid back styles pick a nude/taupe/brown shade sweats set. Pair it with some great nude or white sneakers, lipstick, and some dainty gold jewellery.

2. Oversized versus fitted.

The answer lies in between somewhere. You want it to follow your body, but you’re not looking for super fitted styles. You can of course go either way… but then make sure you do the oversized big so that it makes a statement, and the fitted super gym-style-outside-the-gym.

I’m sure you’ve seen loads of Instagram pics of both situations so just pick one that rocks your boat more and try to emulate it. See how it feels.

Or mix it and match it. Do fitted sweats and oversized sweatshirt, or t-shirt, and the other way around.

3. Keep it sporty and athletic casual.

That’s to say heels and sweats outfits are kinda out. Except of course if you’re Kim Kardashian, then you wear oversized sweats with heeled booties.

So… stick to sneakers, birkenstocks, slippers, and if you want heels do the ankle boots with a stiletto heel. Sandals and heeled pumps worn with sweat-pants are so 2010.

4. Go high-fashion/super-cool.

This is the street style of Fashion Weeks so fabulously done by fashion editors, bloggers and celebrities. It’s sweats outfits mixed with high fashion pieces, designer bags, super statement coats, beautiful shoes. The sweats are not those you lazy around the house in… they’re more of a nipped and tucked version of the classic sweats, more dressy, more 80s rather than 2018 chill.

5. Sweats for slobs with a chic style. #aroundthehouse

This is pretty much all of us at some point. What’s the key to taking the slob to hobo-chic level? Maybe a shower, clean hair, a pair of sunglasses if the face ain’t cooperating #meagain, clean sweats slightly more upgraded than pjs, great sneakers or slippers on, a tiny little jewellery that makes you feel pretty, a leather jacket on top.

6. Celebrity style.

This is the slob version of each of us being completely caught off guard when getting coffee, by the paparazzi. I know. Such a drag. The style is usually either a simple sweats set with a coat or jacket on top, or it can be cropped sweats (either the pants or the sweatshirt). Or you can do the sweatpants and a sports bra with a cool jacket on top.

General tips: you can even wear sweaters with sweatpants as a cool combo. And for an even more laid back vibe layer a longer t-shirt underneath a sweatshirt, and top it all off with a denim jacket, a bomber or a leather jacket.

I am so supporting this new sweats outfits movement in all its shapes and sizes and designs.

The biggest, the best, better than the rest. Everyone sing with me. No? Okay. (feels embarrassed, sits down) While I might be getting slightly ahead of myself here, with the singing and all, the fact is every now and then fashion is just amazing. How it takes one ugly or boring item and makes it the most beautiful thing in the world. That is perfection. Such is the case of plaid pants, the pants that everyone is wearing these days. So… the bigger, the best, better than the rest singing (2018 trend) now makes sense. Still no?

Say what you want I’m sticking to both the song and the plaid pants, and coming from me aka Lover of only black pants and any colour denims, my new found love for plaid pants is kinda surprising. To say the least. But I love them. And in my humble opinion I do think they’re the biggest trend of 2018.

Why is everyone wearing plaid pants? 

Err… hello best trend of 2018! They just beautifully showed up on our sartorial radar courtesy of the plaid trend altogether, and everyone’s wearing them cause they have this chic vibe to them. French style mixed with retro, mixed with laid back but also being able to translate to a billion other personal styles.

Plaid pants are like this fashion challenge everyone’s doing: wearing them to fit their own looks. Some girls wear them with sneakers, some go for heels, some wear them relaxed and chic, while others go for sleek office formal styles.

The plaid pants themselves come in more styles: dressy, for office, cigarette, with pockets, brown checks, black and white, coloured, elastic band waist (hallelujah! I couldn’t have asked for a better trend while being pregnant!), normal waist band, high waist, fitted, slouchy… You just pick your thing and roll with it.

These are also the reasons why everyone’s wearing them: there’s a little something for any and all body types, they’re very flattering, and they’re very easy to style with no wrong fashion turns, you know.

How to wear plaid pants?

Personally I love the relaxed chic style of the brown plaid pants, maybe an elastic waist band, cigarette cut, slightly cropped, with flat shoes, and a white t-shirt. Perfection for Saturday brunch, and for office style.

Pair them with:

I honestly think there’s no wrong way to wear them.

So what do you think, are you a fan of the plaid pants trend 2018 or not?

If you’re wearing a t-shirt in winter as you read this – please take a bow cause you’re a style inspiration to us all. No matter how you fashion tackle this, T-shirts *are* the #1 staple in the world and we almost ALWYAS wear t-shirts in winter as well. Have you noticed that? If they’re not in clear sight, you’re probably hiding them underneath a sweater.

Why does everyone wear T-shirts in winter?

  • easy layering tricks
  • they keep us warm
  • to show them off if the room gets too hot
  • simple vanity aka style purposes
  • they’re a go-to, extremely easy to style item to no matter what else you have on

How to wear t-shirts in winter AND actually show them off?

It all depends on 1) where you’re going and 2) how cold it is, so it’s totally do-able if not actually a coveted look for the past few years. The ubiquity of t-shirts all year round is most likely due to the rise of sports wear as every day wear, and the rise of street-style-like-fashion. Everyone these days is aiming for a casual, relaxed, versatile kinda style, that’s easy to dress up or down, and shows that you made 0 effort yet look like an Instagram star.

The rise of airport style and traveling also took their toll on fashion overall, cause if you’re going somewhere chances of you having a t-shirt on, underneath or just in plain sight is as close to 100% as ever.

So without further ado let’s see a few ways we can wear t-shirts in winter.

1.Style the t-shirt in winter with just a coat!

This look is the classic simple winter street style look you see EVERYWHERE but which slaysssss!!! What exactly do you wear and not freeze?

  • jeans + cool T-shirt + fur coat
  • check pants + white t-shirt + teddy coat
  • all black look with t-shirt + long coat
  • all white look with t-shirt + camel coat
  • jeans + gucci t-shirt + puffer coat

The secret to nailing this casual but very chic style is to wear just the t-shirt with a very warm and thick coat on. Shoes wise I love how heels look with this type of style, cause it seems more statement and powerful, but you can also keep the whole look more simple and laid back with sneakers, or flat shoes. It’a also a great look if the winter ain’t so cold.

Make sure you wear your fave t-shirts, some thin layered necklaces, or statement earrings and loads of confidence.

2. Layer the t-shirt in winter with tons of clothes! 

Okay… this is pretty vague so basically you resort to cardigans, button downs, denim shirts, anything and everything that can stay un-buttoned in the front. To showcase that cool tee right?

  • t-shirt + cardigan
  • t-shirt + unbuttoned denim shirt + jeans + sneakers
  • t-shirt + cardigan + coat
  • t-shirt + blazer + coat

You get the idea: the more you have on, the more sophisticated you’ll look, just make sure you let a sneak peak into your tee situation.

3. Oversized t-shirts in winter!

As much as this look is giving me life, rocking it in all its beauty in winter ain’t so easy, cause you’re gonna have to cover that big t-shirt in order to not freeze.

  • oversized t-shirt + leggings + a puffer coat for a laid back sporty style.
  • oversized t-shirts, like vintage ones are a massive statement + shorts or skirts + a shaggy fur coat
  • wear Uggs, sneakers, and even heels if you’re going for that street style vibe.
  • wear them as a pyjama inspired look, around the house and take one for the gram.

4. Sporty inspired look for t-shirts in winter

Think going to the gym look without actually going to the gym. This is the perfect look for me. It involves leggings and 0 effort but you kinda pull off this don’t care cool vibe.

  • leggings + t-shirt + bomber jacket/puffer coat/coat/blazer/scarf
  • uggs + sneakers
  • oversized t-shirts, more fitted styles, simple, or colourful/text/logo t-shirts

The key to this outfit is 1) laid back, 2) details, 3) a mix of styles.

So wearing a big blazer over a gym outfit made out of a t-shirt looks sophisticated.

Put a pair of sunglasses on, layer some thin necklaces or a tiny choker, and a fanny pack and you’re one hell of a mf.

The jeans and t-shirt combo is the best combo in the world so it only makes sense it transitioned seasons.

It’s a no brainer look. You can’t go wrong with it, it’s easy to put together, to style, to wear… and it looks so good with just a bold lip, a few jewellery, and a great bag.

So what do you think: are you team t-shirts in winter or not?

If you feel weird wearing no bag, Fashion doesn’t care. I wrote this tiny intro few days back #editorialcalander and what do you say, what do you know… things have already changed. You can say all you want about Madame Le Fashion but you can’t say she ain’t moving fast. Lemme shed some light:

While the above remains true – #nobagisacoolbag – what’s also true is that 2018 is the year of the bags. It’s a massive return to the gorgeous pretty beautiful exquisite bags that we used to wear back in the day, circa Gossip Girl times.

I am so emotional right now, I’m actually fighting tears. It’s a happy moment and all I can say is amen and throw my hands up in the air. And guess what? I can now do that while keeping my tiny bag on me, because #beltbagsareback!

Okay people, I am way too excited for a regular morning over this trend, so let me calm myself down for a sec.

(…)

For the past months everyone out there is wearing a fanny pack, currently going by the name of a belt bag. Fine. No big deal if you don’d mind having free hands on a daily basis. But what I’ve discovered just a few hours ago was that alongside belt bags, micro bags are the stars of 2018 as well, and alongside all these a new trend is born for 2018 Spring: the multiple bags trend. (wearing more bags at the same time). Ha! Well… talk about the latter trend that makes more sense – born out of necessity, cause while belt bags and micro bags are sooooooooooo sweet and pretty, y’all can’t carry shit in them, hence the need of something… bigger. #multiplebags.

TBH I’m not complaining at all, I mean 2018 is celebrating bags, and they’re all so many and all so pretty that you can either go with one style, or all of them at once. How fucking brilliant is that!

belt bags

belt bags

What exactly are belt bags?

Ex-fanny packs, but more polished, prettier, girly-er, more glam, more adorned, more high-fashion. However… the belt bags trend does not exclude the classic old fanny packs as we once used to wear them, sporty-er, slouchier, more masculine, casual, practical, normcore.

So basically belt bags are micro bags standing on a belt meant to be worn around your your waist, as a fanny pack, AND/OR as a belt over your coat, or blazer. How cool is that?!

Everyone, and a I mean everyone who’s a who’s who is fashion wore a belt bag all throughout the fashion weeks street styles. Kendall Jenner and her girl squad (is that even a thing anymore?!) is basically the Queen of both cute girly luxe belt bags, as well as normcore fanny-packs, on a daily basis, proving that you can do this trend in a more feminine, polished, professional way is you will (belt bags). OR you can do the casual take on it (80s style fanny packs). Either way the 2018 trend is slayed!

How to wear belt bags?

If you’re the fashion adventurous type, dive in and wear everything from tiny super adorned and embellished Gucci belt bags so tiny they can’t even fit your phone, to the bigger more dorkier style of the 80s fanny packs. One is for office and then other is for weekends… Right?!

Go with what you love because there’s no need to match anything to nothing anymore.

Wear them around your waist, as a belt, OR even cross-body style a la cool kids of 2018.

Tiny pretty luxurious belt bags look better styled and worn as belts over a coat or blazer, and you can do the look for office or a more posh event or something. The classic inspired fanny packs, are usually worn these days cross-body style, with jeans and a sweatshirt. It’s casual, normcore, cool, retro…

I sometimes get so hyped over a new thing that I don’t even care whether or not it lasts, it looks good, or is style practical. I’m just clapping my hands and going along. Obviously this is one of those situations with belt bags. I. LOVE. THEM.

How about you?

You’d be hard pressed to find a girl in 2018 who doesn’t have a staple collection of rings. They’ve become somewhat of a necessity in fashion, if not one of the new jewellery trends, and can glam up even the simplest of looks.

Layering rings and wearing multiple different styles has become a popular way to accessorise, and it can allow your personality to shine through. With embellished rings adorned with mini hearts, open circles and feathers, you can wear them with simple bands for a unique look.

Depending on the designs you find, you can even add some colour with gemstones, or opt for a mixed silver and gold ring for something a bit different. Whatever you choose, make sure you’re stacking them!

Everyday Necklace

You probably already own some special jewellery that you’ll wear for a night out on the town or for a particular occasion. However, you’d be surprised how much an everyday necklace can breathe new life into your wardrobe, adding that extra touch to catch yours and other people’s eye.

With designs like charm necklaces and bar necklaces, the options are endless. Maybe you want to finally buy matching best friends heart necklaces, or perhaps you want something more understated to wear over everything. Whether you’re at work or heading out for dinner, an everyday necklace can ensure you look glammed up. For added effect, you can layer two or three different length necklaces if you really want to stand out!

Personalised Jewellery 

Everyone should own something personalised, whether it was bought yourself or as a gift from someone else. It might be a bracelet engraved with a special message, or a charm necklace that holds some significance for the recipient. Almost any piece of jewellery can add a personal touch with an engraving or meaning, and it can become a treasured piece of jewellery in your collection that you can wear as often as you like.

I guess it’s more of a back to pretty basics with these new jewellery trends, OR a fashion case of out with the loud and bold and in with the classy more timeless pieces. Hmm… I kinda like it.

You?
