How to wear jewels as the weather cools

Alongside cosy wines by the fire, romantic, rainy evening dates and, most excitingly, ski-season, with the incoming cooler months comes new opportunities to think outside the box when it comes to dressing.

As the temperature continues to drop, our pinboards of the sartorial persuasion have had us reaching for our jewellery box just as much, if not more so than we do during warmer days. 

For us this winter it's all about layering, embellishing and making the most of our favourite accessories in new and unexpected ways.  If you're in need of a little inspo for the season ahead, take a look at what's caught our eye recently, below... x


Statement Chains


L-R: A simple black turtleneck is elevated with a chic chain choker at Alberta Ferretti, Fall 2020 | 1980s Celine Paris Chain, shop it here | 1980s Givenchy Two-Toned Chain worn by @_laurasegedin_ and styled / shot by @sophieandreassend, shop it here.


We love layering our favourite chain chokers over cosy cashmere - a refreshing way to style a favourite necklace during the cooler months, this look feels glamorous and polished but is completely effortless to achieve.  Pair your knitwear with a side of bling with our newly listed 1980s Celine Chain and Givenchy Two Tone Necklace.



Cinched-in Cuffs

L-R: 1970s Balenciaga Audrey Bracelet, shop it here | A mid-week suit gets an instant upgrade with two layered chains at the wrist | A white shirt is accented at the cuff with an intricate gold bracelet, like our Olympia by L&O Aletta Bracelet in Gold and Lapis Lazuli, shop it here.


Additional to giving a favourite blazer, knit sweater or crisp white shirt a little something extra, cinching in your wrist with a bracelet or cuff is an instantly flattering styling trick, as it draws the eye to the finest part of your arm.  Get the look with our classic 70s Balenciaga Audrey Bracelet, or for those who are fans of the intricate and ornate, try our Olympia Aletta Bracelet in Gold and Lapis Lazuli.



Berry Tones 

LR: 1970s Balenciaga Bacchus Choker, shop it here | Deep Raspberry tones at Anna Sui, Fall 2020 | Christian Lacroix Elsa Drop Earrings, shop them here | Plum toned crystal clip ons at Lanvin, Fall 2020.


If you find it hard to get inspired on dreary weather days, simply inject a little colour with seasonally appropriate rich wintery tones of berry, plum and wine for an instant lift.  Pair our 1970s Balenciaga Bacchus Necklace and 1980s Christian Lacroix Drop Earrings with other like tones for a cohesive, feminine look that still feels sophisticated.



Wrapped-up in Gold

LR: Dynasty Pearl and Chain Waistbelt, 1980s, shop it here | Cinch in the waist of your favourite blazer with a golden belt to create an hourglass silhouette - an instant wardrobe update when taking your office look to an after-work date.


Bring a little bling to your outerwear game and cinch in your favourite winter coat or blazer with a statement waist belt, like our Vintage Dynasty Pearl and Chain Belt, or our Vintage Cipriani Snake Chain Belt.

Both 1980s and sourced from Texas and Florence respectively, each of these styles will carry you through the cooler seasons now whilst working just as well with your summer wardrobe later on this year.

At Home with Isabelle Weston of The Britten Stables

Over the past year we have had the pleasure of staying at The Britten Stables n Christchurch a number of times - our accomodation of choice whenever visiting our Cantabrian stockists and holding our vintage trunk shows. In time, we've been lucky to get to know the gorgeous owner of the landmark location, Isabelle Weston.  

Running the space is a full time job in itself and now with two gorgeous girls in tow, Adaline and Raphaela, we were thrilled when Isabelle kindly agreed to spend a few minutes with us to chat with us about the restoration, her approach to style, and how she's been dealing with life's big changes over the last few months, just in time for Mother's Day...
