Want to know whether you should be wearing chandelier Pat Butcher earrings or delicate hoops this year? Or whether ear jackets are still the chic way to add a little edge to your look? Well so did we, and so we turned to the people who most definitely know. As anyone who has ever held an interest in jewellery can ascertain, Accessorize is the place to go to stock up on chic, affordable pieces that tick every box from fashion-forward to classic to show-stopping and discreet. So, what will the best-dressed ears, neck, fingers and wrists be wearing this year?
Craving Spring? Then you’ll be very happy to know that Accessorize’s buyers think that floral jewellery is going to be the big story for spring/summer 2016. After seasons of stronger pieces, delicate necklaces and earrings are back. Such as this pretty Katie Butterfly necklace, £22
When it comes to metal, rose gold is the one to plump for this year (if your complexion suits it, unfortunately mine doesn’t). Ticking both the rose gold and geometric boxes this set of stacking rings by Zara Simon’s genius Z for Accessorize range is just gorgeous and looks a lot more expensive that it actually is. £15. Also try these pretty filigree drop earrings also by Z for Accessorize or this beautiful layered necklace dotted with beads and cubic zirconia (below).
Now, this is a style I love. A little bit Art Deco, a lot chic, geometric jewellery can smarten any outfit. If you love long-length earrings then you’ll love these tassel drop geo shell earrings. Also keep an eye out for this beautiful gold cuff, which will be in stores soon.
Torq necklaces are real statement pieces. Traditionally quite stiff designs, they come in a range of styles from geometric (like this semi-precious one above) to delicate, like this pretty fairytale one.
Ear jackets and cuffs
My Accessorize ear jackets from last summer are my go-to earrings for every occasion. I love the way they give a subtle contemporary edge to any outfit (and I wear them with everything from a sloppy jumper and jeans to a smart dress). Therefore I’m very happy that ear jackets and cuffs are still big news for 2016. These Lapis and crystal jackets (the crystals are worn behind the ear lobe) are on my wish list (£6). Whilst these crystal ear cuffs are a delicate way to make your ears a talking point.
