I have always had a soft spot for eclectic and sophisticated jewellery. I fiercely believe that your baubles can make or break your outfit, and that the right type of jewellery has the power to elevate a good outfit to ‘#goals’ status.
Recently, I was trying to put a carefree yet on-trend look together – something that was perfect for easy weekends, but also scored high in terms of style. I started by working with a pair of black cropped trousers. This silhouette has been all over the runway and streets for the last few months, and I really wanted to experiment with it.
I’ve realised that when it comes to sporting cropped trousers like a superstar, a good pair of heels can do wonders for the look. I chose to pair my trousers with peep-toe, block heel boots – the ultimate statement footwear. Finally, I threw on an oversized blouse.
to ramp up the cool but casual vibes and balance out the proportions of my look. I am head-over-heels in love with the beautiful powder blue shade of this top. Aren’t you?
Once I had my ensemble in place, I started to think about the finishing touches –namely, jewellery. I brought out a gorgeous turquoise bracelet and matching pendant. The blue stones from the jewellery accentuated the blue of my blouse, and brought the look together perfectly. However; I don’t like to go over-the-top with matching. Over the years, I have learned that you don’t have to coordinate every single detail of your dress and accessories to perfection. In fact, you probably shouldn’t, because too much matching can easily become overkill. I much prefer to break the monotony and experiment with bold pieces that make a strong style statement in their own right.
So, that’s exactly what I did! I finished off the look with a pair of statement earrings that ended up becoming the highlight of my outfit. It just goes to show that a little bit of bijou can go a long way!
In the outfit above I have used the jewellery collection from Lily & Rose.
