In partnership with Hardy Brothers
The end of June can only mean one thing: we are non-stop thinking of winter and, more importantly, how to adjust our wardrobes accordingly without living in tracksuits. This is something we've come to accept. Whether it's a good new coat or a fresh pair of winter boots, there are always items that can make us feel more put together when all we really want to do is wear a duvet to the office. For me, the key to feeling my best during these dark months boils down to a simple thing: colourful jewellery.
Not the beaded bracelets that your niece made you from a kit (although they are sweet) but real, grown-up feeling jewellery of a certain quality that offers a polished yet fun addition to any outfit. Coloured gemstones are finding their way back into the trend cycle, whether it be through statement earrings or off-beat engagement rings, and Hardy Brothers has their finger on the pulse with their new Autumn Winter 2022 Colour and Pearl collection. Introducing collections that celebrate Australian South Sea Pearls, Coloured Gemstones, and unique Hardy Brothers artisanship, Hardy Brothers' new collection offers a luxurious yet accessible way to bring subtle colour into your styling repertoire for the season.
It begins with a daytime outfit, where slouchy yet well-cut silhouettes are elevated with Hardy Brothers Ear Party Baguette Cut Diamond Huggies. Just enough to pull in the warm tones with gold hardware, while staying subtle for the daytime. Ideally, dainty, sparkly hoops are worn with masculine shapes like this oversized bomber and straight-leg jeans to offer a balance between effortless luxury and self-expression.
Fast-forward to a going-out option, and we'll forever be thinking about the tried and true black dress/green jewellery combination that has stood the test of time. Which is why we'll always opt for a classic stud like the Hardy Brothers Ear Party Emerald Studs for a subtle take on the ultra-glam trend. Square studs are paired with a feminine, watery dress to provide toughness and contrast to the look, with the addition of tall stompy boots to enhance the effortless feel.
For the wearer who wants more, try swapping out square studs for the Graduated Tourmaline Drop Earrings instead, for a more warm-toned green and bigger statement. Happy styling!
