The midas touch
Accessories maketh the outfit. This couldn't be truer for these luxe beaded earrings. They're dramatic without being bling, and dressy without being try-hard.
I've mostly been wearing them with cool summer whites and maxi dresses for a boho, hippy vibe - they're great for festival season. But for after dark, you can afford to go for a more slinky affair; think solid colours such as black, white or gold to achieve the high-octane glamour they conjure up. Remember, less is more. A simple LBD and these earrings will speak volumes.
Now, they may be long - at approx 18cm, they hang down to your shoulders - but I promise that they're not at all heavy. I like how the multi-stranded ends shimmy as you move And I like the price even more - a rather bargainous £2.50 from Primark. Reassuringly expensive looking, but as cheap as chips. I love. A lot.
