‘TIS ALWAYS THE SEASON FOR JEWELLERY, ISN’T IT?
Diamond Ring MICHAEL HILL
WHO WANTS A LITTLE ARM CANDY? Bracelets are a big part of this season’s must-haves, so whether you go boho or luxe or anything in between, make sure you include this finishing touch.

PERFECTION IN PEARLS.
MAKE A STATEMENT.
Pearls are a timeless classic with a skirt and sweater, but don’t be afraid to wear them with jeans – pearls have a way of elevating something casual to something very special.
Sometimes, it’s the unexpected that shows your style. Try a bold necklace with a t-shirt, jean jacket and a pair of khakis for a big impact.

CASUAL COMFORT Whether you’re headed to the office or out to watch the kids play, it’s easy to look great and feel your best. A pair of burgundy jeans paired with a white shirt and navy button-up, leather belt and a pair of boots are easy to put together and wear. Remember to take a hat in case the weather doesn’t cooperate and if you’ve got a workout planned, a good quality sports bag is a must.

Style Icon For a look that goes from the office to the cocktail party or event, you can’t go wrong with a classic grey blazer, crisp white shirt and a bold tie. So easy to freshen the whole look by switching the shirt for something in a soft blue, too. Finish the look with a pair of black trousers, a black belt, a tasteful handkerchief and a pair of good shoes and you’re ready for anything. If you want to make the look more relaxed, just take off the tie and switch out the trousers for a pair of good jeans.
