So you love your new earrings, but have no idea what to wear them with?
Get your notepads ready!
WHO: AGNES (Thatched Gold Hoops)
WHAT: It’s like you’ve rummaged through a Notting Hill vintage store and found THE perfect pair of chunky gold earrings to add a personal touch to any outfit.
WEAR WITH: She enjoys chunky knits, trench coats, denim layers and oversized sweats. Worn with textured neutrals by day or styled with gold layered chains and a red lip by night, “Agnes” brings the cool… even when you aren’t feeling it yourself.
It’s her job to make your outfit work so just sit back and enjoy the compliments.
WHO: DREE (Coffee Bean Necklace)
WHAT: For those just starting their Trove x AF collection, welcome to my Necklace Club. Like my previous styles, “Dree” is destined to sell out fast due to her easy-going nature and head-turning looks.
WEAR WITH: Simply throw on solo with a plain tee or knit and jeans and you’re ready to roll. For those who have been around these parts before, introduce “Dree” to “Anja” (pearl necklace) and “Valerie” (gold chain necklace) - they will get along juuuuuuusssssttt fine!
WHO: WILLA (Lock Necklace)
WHAT: Want to update your wardrobe and invest in a key “seasonal” piece without breaking the bank? Meet “Willa”. She makes even my pyjamas look cool…
WEAR WITH: Whether peaking out from a cashmere v-neck or lavishly layered with oversized shirting, trench coat or blazer, “Willa” will make you the coolest girl in the building. She’s the key to achieving that effortless “I woke up like this” aesthetic. Just put her on and never take her off for authenticity.
BONUS TIP: Layer her with your own treasured necklace collection for an individual spin on accessorising.
WHO: HEIDI (Gold Knot Earring)
WHAT: “Heidi” is an overachiever. She takes any outfit and makes it her own – all you need to do is press “add to cart” and your wardrobe worries will be solved.
WEAR WITH: She nails the tee + blazer combo but also rocks a beautiful, bohemian dress. Felt fedora’s love working with her, as do chunky cable knit cardigans, coats and trenches. She elevates an LBD with a cat-eye sunglass option and red lip. She also rocks an oversized jumper + silk skirt + sneaker ensemble.
BONUS TIP: “Heidi” is a bit of a girls’ girl so please complete your outfit with soft curls to really get the most out of her.
WHO: INGRID (Chunky Gold Bracelet)
WHAT: “Ingrid” is proof that bigger is definitely better. She looks fabulous worn solo or stacked with sentimental favourites.
WEAR WITH: The key is to wear her ON TOP of your chunky knits and coats – to cinch those sleeves in and add a contemporary twist to your outfit. Her rustic finish and rugged demeanour add a personal touch to your accessory-drobe… it’s like she’s been in the family for years and now it is your turn to style her up.
WHO: FREJA (Ring set - available in gold & silver)
WHAT: Autumn/Winter 2020 is all about the “Dome” ring. Upon planning this collection, chunky, sculptural, bold rings were at the top of my list.
Stacked amongst your personal pieces to really add that “stylish something” to an outfit.
WEAR WITH: The “Freja” ring set can be worn on the daily; working with oversized sweats, leather leggings or vintage denim jeans. They are also designed to elevate your intimate dinner ensemble, edging up a simple dress or suit for a contemporary twist on classic dressing.
