January Style Inspo | A roundup to suit all occasions

Happy New Year, lovers.

However you've been spending the festive season, we hope you've managed to have a beautiful few days of much deserved R&R, and are stepping into January 2021 feeling refreshed, inspired and ready for a fabulous year ahead.

Whether heading back to work this week, continuing on with an extended summer break or powering through the everyday, here are five luxe looks that the L&O team are currently coveting, covering a few of the key occasions this variable month can bring.


The wedding - something old; the final touch

Whether nuptials of your own or the attendance as a wedding guest are on the horizon, a pair of vintage statement earrings will ensure you arrive in impeccable style, and leave remembered for it.

L-R: Ralph Lauren, Spring Summer 2005;  Yves Saint Laurent 'Les Etoiles' Earrings, 1980s, shop them hereor for an alternative on a smaller budget, try our Vintage Companies 'Donatella' Earrings, shop them here.


Holiday mode, made a little extra

Don't leave your favourite evening jewels at home just because you're beach-bound.  Find new ways to layer your precious gems with unexpected casual pieces, and enjoy extending their life further than the traditional after dark occasions.

LR: Saasha Burns in a chic metallic choker worn with lightwash denim and a polka dot shirt; Givenchy 'Starburst' Necklace, 1980s, shop it here; or if rhinestones aren't quite you, try our Balenciaga 'Chantilly' Choker, 1960s, shop it here.


Waterside glam, for minimalists

If understated is more your vibe than big and bold, forego the statement pieces and layer elegant, timeless gold forever pieces with your maillot this summer.

L-R: The Solid Gold Herringbone Chain Necklace and Solid Gold Rope Chain Necklace, from Love and Object's Fine Jewels Collection; Alex Riviere layers gold chains with her swimwear picks to perfection.


Back to the office, and ready for after work drinks

Layer this super light 1980s Monet necklace under a favourite blazer and take your look from desk to dinner or date night in less than 10 seconds.

L-R: Azzaro Spring/Summer 2019, Vintage Companies 'Monet' Necklace, 1980s, shop it here.


Sunset walks, 90s inspired

If being stuck in the office during prime summer season gets you down, make the most of daylight savings and our beautiful backyard with evening walks, picnics and date nights by the seaside - and don't forget to let your favourite jewels join in on the fun.  A pair of vintage clip ons will elevate denim jeans, a crew neck sweater and swept back hair with minimal effort, and maximum 90s vibes.

L-R: Laura Jade Stone makes a strong case for a bold lip at the beach, with gold statement earrings to boot; Vintage Companies 'Dolce Vita' earrings, shop them here; or try out Vintage Companies 'Cairo' Earrings, shop them here.
