One day I’m a skinny black jeans girl, the next I’m all over the light blue boyfriend fit. One day I swear by silver jewellery, the next I’m wearing giant gold hoops and stealing my mum’s old engagement rings (she referred to herself as a serial engager the other day, what a legend). When it comes to fashion, we all have a particular personal style that we channel through every outfit, and interpret and reinterpret through trends each season.
With that, comes change. That’s why we fashion bloggers harp on about ‘staple pieces’ all the time – fashion changes its mind, and you’re blessed if you have the space and the money to always keep up. And you know that awfully cringy quote that I often see printed on the walls of girl’s toilets about fashion fading and style staying the same? Well, there is some truth in that. I’m not sure if Coco Chanel ever said it – and if she did, if she ever intended it to be printed on cushions and candles for teenage girl’s bedrooms – but having staple pieces that can be incorporated into a range of different looks despite the trend of the season are central to personal style.
Whilst a good pair of jeans and a sharply tailored coat are always
going to be in style, what about jewellery that you can actually interchange, simply by swapping in and out different elements? Emozioni
is precisely that. There are three elements to each necklace – the
chain, the coin holder and the coin. There are various options for each
piece, in gold, rose gold and silver, which means you can create your
own combination in relation to your personal style, and whatever trend
you’re loving that season. Since launching, Emozioni have released more
than 240 coins, 22 coin keepers and 36 chains; you’re guaranteed to be
able to create a combination you love – even if you’re as picky as me –
and then keep growing your collection as you go.
as indecisive as I am, I decided to mix metals. I went for a short
silver chain, a twisted, rose gold coin keeper and a mixed silver and
rose gold coin. I think silver and rose gold mix particularly well, and since I’m all over natural tones this season, both look great with the innumerable amount of beige and neutral knits I’ve been hoarding.
