STYLE: Reinvent outfits with jewellery
ALREADY have a dress, shirt or jeans and top ready? There is no need to frequently purchase new outfits when you can easily enhance your look with statement jewellery.
This season, asymmetric earrings adorned the ears of many at the designer shows. Statement pieces that resembled beautiful architecture for the ears were being offered in contrasting lengths and shapes. Balenciaga showed oversized earrings, one longer than the other, or a single statement earring hanging delicately from just one lobe. This can be balanced by wearing a one-shouldered dress or top for that touch of glamour on your night out.
Pulling pieces that nod to the '70s punk movement can reinvent a simple jeans and tee uniform. Punk rock and gothic aesthetic can be created by the addition of sliver chains and thin black chokers layered around the neck for a look of rebellious fashion and youthful mistrust.
Exhibited by the likes of Dior and Junya Watanabe, this is an easy option for taking any day look on into the night. Design house Alexandra McQueen also showcased talisman jewellery at his AW17 runway.
Volcanic stones and crystals dangled from metal necklaces and bangles. Wear to holistically heal, or if you just like the eye-catching look of crystals and stones, pieces like this can instantly add a waft of bohemianism to any laid-back dress or shift top.
The stones give a new and unusual sense of style to clothes you thought you had grown out of wearing.
