Going For Gold: Jewellery Fit For The Olympic GamesPosted by Styloko
We’d be lying if we said we didn’t have a competitive streak (doesn’t everyone?). So with the Olympics edging ever closer (three days!), there’s only one thing we really care about: how many gold medals will Team GB bring us this year?
Ok, jokes aside, while we may not be able to predict the athletes’ performances, we can have plenty of fun getting into the sporting spirit by investing in our own medals. At least we’ll look good while cheering them on, non?
Luckily, gold – be it on clothing, bags (see Proenza Schouler’s limited edition gold PS11 Mini) or small accessories – is big on summer’s trend agenda, and there’s a whole hotbed of jewellery styles to choose from. For the feminine dressers, we’re loving the metal lace cuffs – pioneered by Tom Ford, conveniently replicated by the high street – which are the perfect combination of sophisticated and sexy. Vionnet’s simple, sculptural designs, meanwhile, look just as great over a white tee and jeans as they do with colourful cocktail dresses, and Kenneth Jay Lane’s creations never fail to deliver that wow factor.
But our favourite? Pamela Love’s bronze and quartz cone necklace that bears a striking resemblance to the Olympic Torch – how fittingly witty is that?
Take a look at our Going For Gold Scrapbook and get ready for a glamorous 2012 Games – we’re going for as many as we can carry.
