Charles Bowden once said “summertime is always the best of what might be” and I can understand what he meant. Everyone’s in a better mood when the sun is bright and the light, warm evenings are filled with friends and laughter. After the gloom of winter we all chase the sunshine, spending every last second of our precious lunchbreaks outside.
If you’re itching to try something new or would just like to shake things up, summer is a fabulous time to experiment with your style. The warm weather presents the perfect opportunity play with colour or print and to have fun with your clothes and jewellery. The catwalks were full of bold colours so why not take your cue from the likes of Issey Miyake, Céline and Balenciaga and clash hues with confidence?
I love the sun but, sadly, it doesn’t love me! I’m laughably pale and go through multiple bottles of factor 50 every year and the thought of getting sunburn makes me anxious so my go to summer outfit is a cute tee (shoulder coverage is essential when you burn to a crisp in 10 minutes!) & a high-waisted skirt so sometimes throwing on an eye catching statement necklace or stacking cute bracelets adds that essential finishing touch.
Mixing up your jewellery is a great way to introduce some fun into your existing wardrobe and tiny touches like these Kate Spade Piñata earrings are just the right amount of girly holiday charm while this Hand Over Love necklace by Samanatha Wills is a must have for the boho luxe ladies out there. Here are my favourite jewellery picks for summer – statement and fine – to inspire you!
