Last Night I Dreamt’s in-store stylist and Nottingham Style Consultant Lisa Holland looks at the forthcoming jewellery trends so you can refresh your look with an injection of Last Night I Dreamt bling.
It’s that time of year again and I don’t know about you but for me it always feels good to refresh your wardrobe for winter. Goodbye strappy summer dresses & shorts & t-shirts hello cosy jumpers, jeans & boots. The same can be said for your jewellery. Granted, not all of us went off on our jollies this year with our boho arm candy & tassel necklaces but there are some jewellery items you just know are better suited to your summer wardrobe.
Fear not there are some fabulous winter trends that are easy for everyone to wear dressed up or down even if out out doesn’t exactly have the same Je ne sais quoi.......Summer is over so let’s just move on. Luckily for all of us there are still a lot of 2019 fashion trends from the catwalk that remain popular in 2020.
70s Glam Rock, ruffles, high neck blouses, big frilly collars, fringing, voluminous sleeves. Head to www.ganni.com (one of Rebecca’s faves!)
Tweeds & checks with a 70’s vibe, culottes worn with silk blouses or a tight knit. Capes & Ponchos. Suits & boots. Lots of this about on the highstreet - head to www.zara.com , www.mango.co.uk and www.h&m.com conscious range.
Oh & glamour is back. Maybe because we’ve been lounging for too long in baggy comfy clothing, fashion is here to kickstart our doughy butts. It’s all about sequin frocks & slinky slips, the catwalk was awash with metallics & high shine silks & satins. Head to www.ghost.co.uk (Rebecca’s go to!) www.self-portrait-studio.com This look means you can go all out with statement earrings & a matching necklace. Shop our Soru collection instore. Last Night I Dreamt, Southwell is the main Nottingham Jewellery Shop stockist of Soru in the East Midlands with the largest collection of their jewels! We have some amazing newness dropping in the Soru cabinet in the next few weeks.
Pearl jewellery continues to be strong for all seasons & in all shapes & sizes, in fact pearls are still trending like crazy in a plethora of ways. They don’t always have to look classic either with all the mixed metals & shapes they are more abstract & interesting & much more funky. The best thing about this trend is that every piece looks unique & one of a kind. Last Night I Dreamt has the most varied collection of pearls that can be found in a jewellery shop in Nottingham. From quirky to classic our Southwell jewellery boutique has got it covered. Shop our Becca Jewellery collection for the kookiest pearl drops you ever did see. We’re also lusting after the Alex Monroe Flying Bee hoop earrings and the Motley Bird with a Pearl Earring. Keep an eye on Anna Beck who’ll be releasing a pearl limited edition collection in October and of course don’t forget the fabulous Claudia Bradby. Rebecca’s favourites are her Gold Double Helix Hoops. A modern twist on the classic pearl! There’ll also be some glamorous pearls to choose in our Soru cabinet (instore only!)
Statement chokers popped up everywhere across most of the autumn/winter 2020 runways. Wear yours with a V neck sweater, cardigan or low neck dress. The chokers most seen are in gold & made up of either knots or chains. Chunky chains can really make a statement & dress up your outfit if you are going out but equally if you just want to dress up a more relaxed look in jumper & jeans this is a really easy style hack. Blow the budget and shop our stunning Phine Forever choker. For chunky chains why not try our Tilly Sveaas chunky Gold T Bar Curb Link Necklace? Chunkier chains have also shown up in some of our other cabinets. We are a Nottingham stockist of V by Laura Vann we hold the most extensive collection and have her recent release of Forever chains. Check out their chunky offering here.
Hoops & supersize hoops are everywhere. If you have multiple piercings playing with size & texture can look really modern. Our curated ear game is super strong at Last Night I Dreamt Jewellery boutique with the widest collection of hoops across various brands so you can shop for every single ear piercing in Nottingham’s mini Liberty of the East Midlands. There are some great hoops in all manner of shapes, bamboo gold hoops, twisted hoops, double hoops, door knocker hoops, hoops with pearls, chain hoops, huggie hoops. Here are some of Rebecca’s selection & she has some real gems to choose from.
Motley’s Abstract Hoops tick the chunk box perfectly and Door knocker Motley Hoops 2.0 are on several people’s wish list. Rebecca and Libby’s faves are the Rachel Entwistle Athena Hoops in gold! Go supersize with her Modern Primative Large Hoops. We are also an exclusive stockist of everyone’s favourite earring brand Astrid & Miyu in Nottingham. Curate your ear with the go to for bloggers and celebs alike.
Another key trend that seems to be growing is colourful jewellery, be it colourful stones, feathers, beading or semi precious stones which of course can add real joy to the wearer & give a pop of colour to any winter outfit, especially when the dark evenings start to draw in.
A colourful ring for example works really well on it’s own or even better in a stack. Bold colours, bright neons & pastels too. Stack, layer & adorn this rainbow jewellery with the classic pieces you never take off. Mishky continues to be the brand of choice for affordable beaded boho luxury and the of the Autumn hues landing in the next week or so are to die for so keep your eyes peeled for a new drop. In the meantime add some pearly colourful goodness with our Mallorca bracelet (as pictured!) Add some luxury gems to your jewellery world with our Astley Clarke cabinet! We are the main Astley Clarke stockist in Nottingham with the largest collection of their jewels!
Remember, whenever we need to perk up our outfits jewellery comes to the rescue.............
Lots of love Lisa xxx
