“KEEP IT SIMPLE”
With a statement necklace like this, it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit understated and let the necklace speak for itself, so keep it simple. Give me a plain white tee, denim cut-offs, heeled ankle boots, a necklace and I’m all good to go!
3.1 Phillip Lim Isabel Marant
ROCK STEADY If there’s one thing you can never have enough of, it’s jewels. Birthday present jewels, antique jewels and the best kind - gift-to-self, just-because jewels. But we’re doing the gifting this month with a trio of embellished accessories you’re sure to love. Firstly, a crunchy collar necklace to keep you on-trend with this season’s jewel focus. At their recent shows, 3.1 Phillip Lim pimped out sweatshirts with pop-out gems, Isabel Marant went crazy for coloured rhinestones (her inspiration was Elvis) and Balmain encrusted opulent crystals and pearls on the bodices of dresses. Secondly, you’re getting a pair of super cool collar tips to give your button-ups some extra punch, and the final touch, a chic leather cuff to finish off any and every outfit. Jewels, jewels, jewels – pile them up, we say!
CLASSIC We’re guessing your closet is made up of the essentials: blazers, tees, LBD’s and neutral knitwear. When it comes to jewellery, you like pieces you can wear back with everything - so make this gold chain finished with dusky stones your new go-to. We’re seeing it with a grey tank and bleached boyfriend jeans for off-duty or a slick black suit and heels at the office.

Feminine We know you love shiny, pretty things, and this delicate jewelled necklace makes a sweet statement. The threetiered crystals work a treat with sherbet tones and playful ruffles, and you can adjust the length to sync it with your neckline. Ladylike with lashings of gems: this oneâ€™s a keeper.

Honey & Beau Cheyenne Maxi Dress
TRENDY Cobalt is a major trend this season – we’re seeing hits of it on the runway, the streets and the A-list, and this electric statement piece is bang-on. Layer it over a graphic suit or leather dress - the oversized stones take the embellishment factor to the next level, while the chunky rope gives a casual twist. Rock it by day or after dark.

We’ve picked three colours to fit each style profile – black for Classic, white for Feminine and of-the-moment orange for Trendy. The timeless chain-link detail works around the clock – team it with a cocktail dress or leather pants, skinny jeans or a maxi. It’s anything-goes glam.

PORE-FECT, FLAWLESS SKIN MADE POSSIBLE
WHO SAYS YOU NEED TO SPEND BIG TO LOOK A MILLION BUCKS? This Australian brand was designed to give women the same high-end quality as the worldâ€™s leading brands at just a fraction of the price - from only $4.99.
YOUR 12ML TRAVEL SIZE
BENEFITS: This silky smooth 2-in-1 balm, with Vitamins C & E, Peptides, Green Tea, Aloe Vera and Sericite (a mineral used to boost radiance), will help banish the appearance of fine lines. It works to minimise the appearance of pores by filling in and protecting, and also to maximise make-up application by creating a flawless, even surface!
HOW-TO: Apply this silky, talc-free, oil-free and lightweight balm either under or over make-up to help it stay put! To use under make-up, apply to a cleansed and moisturised skin. Pat onto problem areas and gently blend into skin. To use over make-up, simply pat on gently over make-up and blend. It’s as simple as dab and blend for flawless perfection!
Available from Pharmacies & Price Attack stores. Check out the website to find your nearest store!
Don’t even think about swishing on mineral make-up or slapping on a face tint without priming first. Primer is the gobetween for skin and foundation. It stops foundation sinking into skin for a polished finish and helps make-up stay put.
I’ve fallen in love with the new Designer Brands Pore Minimising Primer. Yep, it’s truly up there with some of my all-time faves!
