Accessories are so much more than the items we add to our outfits. When used the right way, accessories can help us present ourselves to others the way we want to be perceived, sending across a subtle yet effective message.
The details we choose to adorn our outfits with can also impact the way we feel, and they can be powerful tools for self-expression as well. Your jewelry collection can tell a lot about your personality, and that’s why you should strive to build a curated selection. If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably got a couple of pieces you ‘plan’ on wearing but don’t get much use of, and want to get some new pieces but don’t know what to look for. If you need some inspiration, take a look at our top five picks you can (and should!) add to your jewelry collection.
A chunky necklace as a powerful fashion statement

Chunky necklaces are the perfect go-to pieces for those days when you feel like making a serious style statement without going overboard. When worn properly, this bold piece of jewellery can enrich an outfit and make your garments look brand new without necessarily investing in your wardrobe.
The key is to find a necklace that ties the entire ensemble, either by matching it to the colors of your outfit or using it to add a pop of color to a neutral or monochromatic color scheme. If you decide to wear one, pare down on other jewellery pieces for a more polished look. Chunky necklaces work for both professional settings and casual outings, which makes them a versatile fashion item you should consider investing in.
Hoop earrings as a stylish must-have

Whether you are headed for a brunch with friends, getting dressed for work, or plan on running some errands, these ear-ware staples will add a dose of chicness and help you look more elegant and classy.
Hoop earrings come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, so you can play around, try out different hoops and match them to your outfit. Whether you choose something dainty or go wild with the statement-making earrings is up to you.

Watches are one of those signature jewellery pieces that can be worn on multiple occasions while making you look elegant and polished. A watch on someone’s hand sends a clear message – they’re organized, they’re reputable, and they care about their image just as much as they care about being punctual.
Whether you’re looking for jewellery to tie your whole outfit together or want to add a signature piece to spice it up, an elegant stainless steel watch is something you can’t go wrong with. Go subtle with a dainty watch with a charm or go big with a chunkier version of this classic jewellery essential – either way, it’s a hit.
Diamond studs for a timeless elegance
Few items spell class quite like a pair of diamond studs. Subtle yet effective, diamond studs are the epitome of timeless elegance that fits with a number of outfits, while adding a perfect dose of glamour and sparkle to any ensemble.
When wearing diamond jewellery, you want to keep other pieces minimal. Go with white gold or platinum to make your diamond earrings stand out more. They also look amazing when paired with precious stones, particularly sapphire and ruby. All-black ensembles will further emphasize your diamond studs, and so will deep V and bateau necklines.
Stacking rings for maximum impact

Wearing multiple rings at once makes a serious fashion statement, and it’s a trend that lets you get creative with your jewelry pieces and achieve a maximum impact. When it comes to stacking your rings, there isn’t really a rule on how to do it, and you decide how many rings you put on each of your fingers.
You can stack your rings by color, blend different metals, or match your jewellery to your manicure. Whether you like to go bold or prefer to keep things minimal, stacking rings are great for showing your creativity as well as your fashion sense.
Finding a perfect piece to complete your outfit and complement your features can be tricky, especially when you’re running late and need to make a decision fast. However, when you have a carefully curated and versatile jewellery collection, you spare yourself much of the decision fatigue.
Rely on our top picks to put perfect finishing touches on a number of outfits and build an enviable jewellery selection you’ll rock with confidence.
