No matter the outfit there is always a need for some jewellery, there is no such thing as too many accessories. Coco Chanel once said “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” I am certain she did not mean the jewels or at least that is what I’d like to think. Unlike the summer where there was an increase in dainty and delicate jewellery the winter calls for more of a statement, so get ready to be big and bold with your accessories taking inspiration from the 80s, 90s and 00s. I have collected 5 of the most wanted jewellery you will be seeing over the winter months, they will be a part of your daily rotation of jewellery so get ahead of the game with these new trends. 

Chandelier Earrings 

This style of earring is always the life of the party, catching them at all the big events combined with the best dresses and lots of sparkle. So what's better for the party season than extra long earrings to really make a statement? They are usually lightweight so can last all night long without dragging your ears down. I would pair these with a long line dress which is off the shoulder, sparkly heels and style your hair in an up do to really accentuate the decolletage, this creates the best christmas party look that will have you looking like the belle of the ball. For a more casual way to wear the earrings try a pair of leather leggings, a one shoulder top and a blazer draped over the shoulders, this is perfect for that day to night look. 

Chunky Gold Jewellery 

This eighties trend has made the ultimate come back, I’m talking chunky gold chains, bold gold earrings and chain gold bracelets. If it is gold, chunky and textured it is going to be something you need to add to your collection. To style add a chunky gold necklace to an all back outfit this can be a pair of leather trousers and a top or a little black dress, pair with heels and a chain gold bracelet for a chic and classy evening look. For a simple day time look add a pair of chunky gold hoops, layered gold necklaces and a selection of gold rings to jeans and a top for an upgraded casual look.

Charms Are Back

I’m sure that everyone has collected charms for their bracelets at some point, trying to collect as many as possible to create the best bracelet in your class was a fun pastime. Now you can break out your old charms and add them to your wardrobe as they are this season’s must have. Charms are not limited to bracelets anymore now it is all about the charm earrings, the quirkier the better. Try miss matching charms for a cute detail in your jewellery combination, you can also opt for a more toned down version by going for matching pearl charms or marching diamond charms for a chic look. 

Strings of Pearls 

Pearls are back with a vengeance, seen all over the 1950s on stars such as Marilyn Monroe they have been the shining star of class. I mean, who doesn’t want to channel their inner Marilyn complete with a modern twist. Whether you opt for a choker style necklace, long strings of beads or a pearl pendant make sure you wear them with pride, the best way to do this is to add a choker style pearl necklace to an off the shoulder jumpsuit for a classic look, if you want to splash the cash Vivienne Westwood has some unique pearl chokers complete with the iconic orbe. If you want more of a daytime look add a string of pearls to a black dress to really make a statement remember this winter it’s all about going big or going home.
