While I’m working on my AW 2015 wardrobe refresh (spoiler: there are quite a few new style posts coming up!) and looking at the new season trends and figuring out which I want to try, I’ve also been keeping an eye out for cool, new accessories to help make my trusty go-to outfits feel fresh and new again. So when the team at JOY got in touch with the opportunity to style an accessory from the new AW 2015 collection, I was delighted to step up to the challenge.
After looking through the AW15 accessories I selected the Ichi Marble Pendant Necklace*. Marble is really on trend at the moment, and I loved the arch detailing.
While choosing how to style the necklace I thought it’d be a good idea to put together a day to night look because most days I go out after work, and if I haven’t thought about what to wear in advance (or have an old favourite at the ready!) I always end up flapping about trying to find something I’m happy with. Now I’ve got another outfit I’d be happy to wear, and could easily throw together before heading to the office. However, we photographed this at the weekend after enjoying lunch at Babylon, and this outfit totally worked for a day out in Kensington, too!
I opted for a dark top so that the marble pendant would stand out a bit more (though it does still look nice against a lighter colour!) and I chose the v-neck because the shape works well with the longer chain of the necklace. To keep the silhouette sleek I tucked in the shirt and added a bit of definition with the belt. To add a dash of colour – and also help keep me warm – I threw on the fringed kimono jacket. (Though the outfit still works without it!) On this day I chose to wear my cowgirl boots because they’re great for walking around, but this outfit would also look great with heeled boots.
What do you think of the necklace? How would you style it?
