|Model wears two Party Necklaces. How very decadent.|
Let’s talk about embellishment. Bejewelled coats, dresses and handbags were all over the catwalks like Boris Johnson supporters at the Tory Party conference. And we know how we feel about that. With adornment as with Borismania, a little goes a long way.
As a fan of Casual Glamour, I love to liven up a pared-down outfit with a small sprinkling of glitz.Which is why I’ve added this Boden party necklace to my repertoire. I wore it today with my favourite grey sweatshirt and received quite a few compliments, don’t you know. Anyone who remembers the Art Of The Trench experience (people, that photo still haunts me) will have clocked my Liz Taylor earrings in all their cheap, spangly glory. OK, so I’m not the first to use eye-catching accessories to help crank up the glamour factor, Coco Chanel famously wore costume jewellery with sporty separates for a relaxed daytime stroll along the French Riviera – and today, Jenna Lyons has got that high-low look down to a tee. As Lyons told The Times last year, ‘It works best to mix both sides of the closet…I try to think
of ways for women to get dressed in an outfit that will work in an
office as well as for going out to dinner in the evening.’
