Whatever you’re doing this summer you’re sure to want to liven up your summer wardrobe with some jewellery. To help we’ve styled up a basic white t-shirt and jeans in two different ways to give you some inspiration.
This is the outfit we started with:
The first style is from the high street at H&M and is all about bright summer colours, both contrasting and complementing the outfit:
A bright necklace livens up the plain tshirt, and the bangles tie all the colours together:
The earrings finally finish off the outfit with complementing colours. The earrings are understated to draw the colours together without making being overpowering.
The second style is also about contrasts, but more the contrast of material rather than colour, it’s an edgier style, less beach and more ‘Camden on holiday,’ but also from the high street.
The chunky necklace is a mix of colours, sizes and materials, the matching bracelet has a fantastic contrast including a cotton type friendship bracelet, it’s a single piece but you could easily put something similar together with items you already own.
We’ve added bangles on the other wrist for a further embellishment, but these could be left out, they are layered with two bangles to maintain the heavyset, metallic style.
Again we’ve kept the earrings simple, so as not to overload the look.
Keeping the earrings simple and not using any rings means that the look isn’t ridiculous or overpowering, in the words of Coco Chanel:
“Before leaving the house, a lady should stop, look in the mirror, and remove one piece of jewelry.”
