5 Fashion Hacks for Jewellery

I do not wear a lot of jewellery, but the few I do wear, I like them to be quality. I won’t just put any piece on. Jewellery has the power to step up any look, once worn correctly.

Here are a few jewellery fashion hacks to remember when shopping or styling your next outfit:

 

All on the Wrist

Drawing attention to your wrists is the oldest trick in the style bible. Opt for small and delicate bracelets or bangles if you have a slim, slender wrist like mine above, or go for chunkier wrist jewellery for larger wrists. These Corbico Bracelets are so cute.

 

No Necklaces on Halter-neck Tops

I see ladies rocking a halter-neck top and a necklace at the same time and it looks so wrong. I wish I could stop and tell every one of them, so I am telling as many that are reading this post. If you are guilty of the fashion mistake, please stop now.

The neck is a vocal point already, and having a halter-neck top on draws more attention to it. So rocking a necklace on a halter-neck top will just draw too much attention to it, and look odd. Instead, draw attention to your bare shoulders by rocking large hoop or drop earrings.

 

Layer the Bangles

I love layering bangles and bracelets. I think it is so cool, and it kind off adds the ‘WOW’ to an otherwise boring/plain outfit. I love stacking bangles and bracelets up. It creates this bold look. These Ziba Bangles are the TRUTH!

 

Earrings

 

Sparkling Earrings

I pay special attention to my earrings. I now go for quality over quantity so you won’t catch me rocking cheap plastic sterling silver earrings. I hardly necklaces on, because I like to pay more attention to my earrings. A beautiful pair of earrings, like the Hazel + Kent beauty above, can easily change an entire look. Trust me, I know.

 

Choker

Like I said, I hardly have necklaces on but when I do have them on, I like them to be dramatic. A choker has the power to transform a plain look to instantly. This dramatic Regal Rose choker necklace is one of my current favourites.

OOTD: Spring/Summer Outfit

Looking Summery Image

The weather this weekend at my end went from one extreme to the other. It was nice and sunny on Saturday, and I made the most of it. I went for a swim, had outfits photos snapped, went for long walks and had a few errands sorted. Then came Sunday, and it was like we were back in winter again. It was very cold and wet, rained pretty much all day, and then we even hailstorm in the evening. It was a proper mental weather, you won’t believe the days were just next to each other, with the very different weather.

Speaking of weather, and how we are in meant to be in spring, getting ready for summer, but it still feels like winter on some days, we can start rocking our spring/summer pieces and accessories now. As long as you layer right on the chilly days, you would be fine. If not half the year may go by with you still rocking your autumn/winter pieces.

Spring Look

The good way to start slowly introducing your spring/summer wardrobe is to start with your shoes. It may not be warm enough for summer dresses and skirts, but you can get away with rocking sandals and summer shoes now, as long as you style them properly. There are so many amazing summer shoe collections in stores now, Kurt Geiger has so many stylish additions available this season, and this shoe candy I am rocking is one of them, so keep an eye on their new shoe collection section.

Spring Outfit

I adore the slightly curved small heel, I found it super comfortable. The ankle straps and the glossy khaki upper with the blue detail at the back, finishes it off beautifully. It is a shoe for both day and night, perfect choice!

Charm Bracelets Image

This Marilyn Heart Charm Bracelet by Corbico Jewellery London is the cutest piece ever! The three gold colour bracelets with heart dangle charms is from the Dainty Collection, and it comes in three colours; rose gold, gold and rhodium, and looks amazing. They can be take you from day to night effortlessly. I will be wearing these gorgeous pieces for as long as possible.

Fashion & Style Police Interviews Rebecca Warwick/Regal Rose

So I had the privilege of interviewing one of the talented ladies behind the famous jewellery brand – Regal Rose, and it was a fun chat. Regal Rose was launched in 2009 by twin sisters Louise and Rebecca Warwick, and they release two collections a year. Their designs are super quirky and creative, and has been spotted on the Xfactor UK, Rita Ora & Ellie Goulding, and in magazines such as Grazia, LOOK, and Cosmopolitan.

This promises to be a good read, so grab a cuppa and get comfy.

Where do you get your inspiration from for your designs?

Up until a few weeks back myself and Louisa were the sole designers for each seasonal collection. Our inspiration for each design comes from a wide range of areas including our favourite childhood films like Alice in Wonderland, Labrynth, Edwards Scissor Hands, Return to Oz and Legend. Nature also plays it’s part in our work; we find inspiration everywhere we go, from the colours and forms of plants and flowers to the tones and shapes of the winter and spring months. We spend a lot of time researching, brain storming and focus heavily on ‘up and coming’ trends, whilst always pushing to stay well ahead in the jewellery design sector. More recently, the design team has grown and we now work very closely with the team.

How do you cope in the competitive fashion industry?

Not to badly! We stay focused on our own business. I think that’s key. After all, we want to lead, not follow. We’re lucky enough to be both
creative and business minded, so we really do enjoy the designing and the competitive nature of the fashion industry.

What advice would you give anyone thinking of setting up a jewellery line?

Work hard and stay focused. Nothing just happens, the more effort you put in the more results you will get (Obvious but so important!). Stay focused and plan your strategy. Stay away from following other brands, make your own print.

Where do you see Regal Rose in 5 years?

Our designs are currently stocked at ASOS, Free People, Urban Outfitters US and Selfridges. We hope to be stocked by many more large retailers in 5 years time. We’re also working on growing our team!

What do you think of the Fashion and Style Police blog?

We think its great! Very informative. There’s always something interesting to read. We feel there’s a underlining ‘realness’ to the blog and is
refreshingly down to earth.
