Growing up, I went through various different phases with my jewellery and accessories. Through my teen years when I was struggling to figure what style I wanted to go for one week to the next, jewellery and accessories were the easiest thing to switch up to suit who ever I wanted to be that week. And to be honest, not much has changed in that respect.
It’s the finishing touches to an outfit that can really give off the vibe you’re going for. Whether it’s a rolled gold locket for a vintage feel, or a gem stone ring for the more fancy occasions, accessories have the power to lift a whole outfit up to the next level (or alternatively dress an outfit down) and this is why they can be so important.
As I get older I am finding myself becoming more and more prone to go for the ‘less is more’ approach. I may have dabbled in the world of the statement jewellery on and off through my years, but these days I tend to lean towards the more understated and discrete styles. These are what I get the most wear out daily and so more worth the investment. Don’t get me wrong, I may still add the odd ‘out there’ piece when the mood takes me, but day-to-day I like simple, discrete and versatile.
The simplest of pieces of jewellery are more likely to suit a variety of different outfits and styles, and versatility is important to me as I would much rather have a few bits I can wear all the time on rotation rather than a load of things that I barely ever reach for.
A simple bangle is something you really can’t go wrong with. This silver bangle* from Ineffabless is perfect for adding a tiny hint of sparkle to what could otherwise be a rather mundane outfit (you can see the variety of bagels they have to offer here). The quality is amazing and their pieces come beautifully packaged, so if you’re looking for a little treat for yourself or a loved one I would definitely recommend checking them out!
What are your favourite jewellery pieces?
Until next time!
