We're all embracing loungewear as our lockdown standard, comfort being a top priority. You might even be tempted not to bother putting on your jewellery ‘just to stay at home’. But according to Dr Derek Watson, associate professor in cultural management at the University of Sunderland, we need to balance that feeling with “the psychological effect of wearing it and the importance of the feel-good factor right now”.
Well, we need the feel-good factor in abundance don’t we? So whether you’re facetiming your parents, doing vino night with the girls on Houseparty or your weekly team meeting via Zoom, our jewellery tips will have you looking- and feeling- your best.
Can’t be bothered to put on a smart top for your weekly team catch up? Just check that your sweatshirt is clean (no signs of the yogurt you ate earlier on there) and add in some fabulous statement earrings. They will instantly elevate your look to be more polished and like you’ve made an effort. Choose a piece that has a professional feel- so perhaps give the big coloured tassels a miss and go for something in metal instead.
A delicate beautiful necklace always makes you look a bit more put together even with the most casual of lounge wear. A lovely chain layered over a plain t-shirt or jumper can look so elegant. Or if you want to look really on trend for your Houseparty girls night, why not create a layered look by stacking a couple of simple necklaces together?
Necklaces have been one of my personal go-to pieces during lockdown. I love layering our Moon & Stars Necklace as the base and adding in a pendant for a bit of an individuality.
If you struggle to get the layered necklace look right, why not create the complete layered look below for under £30 by visiting our Outlet? All simple enough to wear at home!
It’s hard to avoid the conversations around the Coronavirus isn’t it? Those conversations coupled with all the news content can alter your mood drastically. Bring yourself back into the moment with a little reminder. And if it’s a pretty reminder, that’s even better. Touch on the charm on our Hope Bracelets and remind yourself to breathe. Or if you want an inspirational mantra to focus on, you can use our Sentiment Bracelets and remind yourself that there is still beauty in the world.
Your Friday night Prosecco meet up with the girls deserves something a little bit special- you’ve made it through the week! This is one of those Zoom calls that you will make an effort for- at least by making sure your hair has some dry shampoo sprayed through it! Add in some tinted lip balm and our Ear Climbers as the finishing touch. They are pure understated glam, and everyone will be asking you where you got them from!
This is a jewellery basic I swear by. I believe every jewellery collection should contain a pair of high quality, stunning minimal studs. They look beautiful, they are versatile and make you look a bit more put together whatever the occasion.
Add them to a statement necklace to keep the focus on your neckline, use them to sparkle up jeans and a t-shirt, or pop them on when you just want to look a bit polished without making a lot of effort.
Go for something really special like our Moon Drop Studs. They are sterling silver platinum plated with AAA zircons- a stone that has all the lustre of a diamond without the price tag.
