The best thing about this trend is it is never ending – you can constantly combine your favourite earrings to create something new!

If you’re looking for some new earrings to mix match, keep an eye out for interesting colours and shapes. One big, drop earring in one ear combined with a coloured or pearl stud is perfect for a quirky yet stylish look.

See Red With Statement Coloured Jewellery
The easiest way to make a statement this season is opting for stand out coloured jewellery. Red is one colour that always commands attention, and this was picked up on the runways for AW17 by designers such as Valentino. Red is not only bright and beautiful but extremely festive, making it the ideal choice in the build up to Christmas.

Choose from bright red charm bracelets to add interest to your look, or keep it subtle day to day with a red ladies watch. If you’re looking to make an impression in the evenings, a Swarovski set offering red crystal pieces guarantees to set off your look to perfection.
