Top tastemakers reveal their hot jewellery looks for summer
In need of inspiration for your new-season wardrobe? We’re taking our accessorising cues from our most stylish friends, bloggers and girl crushes on social media.
NAJO’s top 4 hottest summer jewellery looks – and how to style them!
1. Hoop earrings
Unquestionably, hoops are set to be THE statement earring this summer. Whether they’re traditional hoops or studs with a hoop drop, big and graphic is the name of the game.
Melbourne fashion blogger @biancamelb pairs her Carlotta Stud Earrings with off-the-shoulder gingham and denim shorts. Also fans of the off-the-shoulder top and hoop earring combo are @hudsonandharper and @inspiringwit. This classic combination of flirty frills, bare shoulders and gleaming silver hoops screams summer. It’s like a modern take on Mexican folk fashion – think Frida Kahlo – so it’s no wonder we love it!
2. Fine layered necklaces
Bare sun-kissed skin needs little embellishment to carry it through the steamiest months of the year. It’s a time to forego the chunky statement pieces and opt for fine, light accents. No one gets this more than beach babe and Sydney blogger @hollyleelu. Holly is rarely seen without a barely there necklace or two, perfectly layered and casually teamed with an assortment of fine stud earrings. It’s sexy, effortless and perfect for summer. One of her favourite layering pieces by NAJO is the Like a Breeze Necklace. The shorter length sits high on the collarbone so you can pair it with longer pieces like the Carumba Necklace- as worn with a simple white tee by the gorgeous @belindabw.
Yep, you heard right. Pearls. These definitely aren’t your granny’s pearls though. Modern and graphic, they add polish and sophistication to your formal summer wardrobe. Our Couture Stud Earrings and Pendant will take you from long days at the office to those after-work soirees and Christmas parties. The secret to perfecting this modern take on pearls is to go monochrome in your wardrobe. See Brisbane’s @twocorporategirls and Sydney’s @lyndlkean for how to rock black and white for the ultimate in corporate cool.
4. A ribbon of silver or rose gold…
The final word in summer style from our favourite tastemakers is ultra simple: nothing more than a fine, minimalist ‘ribbon’ of rose gold or highly polished sterling silver. Its appeal is obvious: versatility and timeless beauty. This clean, understated look works with everything from @sherlockdiary’s white linen shirt and @caseyaburgess’s sleeveless chambray shirt to a head-turning red dress, as seen on @_belindaliana_.
