LBD & Me
I thought it was about time to run a style series on Adorn London using an LBD and the SS12 trends highlighted on our Trends page to show you how jewellery can transform an outfit and how the same LBD can be accessorised differently to reflect a different mood or look. To launch the LBD & Me series, I have chosen Global Warrior as my style focus.
1. Take a simple black dress and decide on the main colours that support the theme, I have chosen tan leather shoes and a Tribal print handbag.
2. Think about the four main jewellery categories: Earrings, Neckwear, Wristwear and Rings and make sure your complement includes at least two of these pieces.
3. Think about the materials and colourways that will support your look. Tribal, for example, lends itself to horn, wood, semi-precious stones and other naturally found objects.
Today, to complete my Tribal look, I have chosen a banded agate, oxidised sterling silver and 18ct gold necklace by Belmacz; a horn bangle with brass rivets by Ashley Pittman and, still sticking with the main colourway and style, a 24ct gold plated scarab ring by Oscar de la Renta.
