Welcome back to Jewellery Week here on the blog. I am happy to once again be collaborating with Eternal Collection, who have provided the beautiful Capri Murano Glass Necklace you see above.
While it's true that I am always banging-on about trying to get away from wearing black all the time (especially at this time of year), I concede that there are times when your hand is sort of forced. Often, when I'm planning a capsule wardrobe for a trip where I have a limited amount of stuff I can bring, I go there too.
However. I think it's important to retain a little bit of life and color in any look, especially when you are in head-to-toe neutral shades. That's where a piece like this Murano glass necklace comes in. It adds just a hint of deep red color; enough to light up your face a bit, but not so much that you won't be able to pair it with a million-bazillion different things in your wardrobe. I love red and black together, but it can be quite a formal-looking combination, so I chose to pair this necklace with a black wool blazer and tee and offset that formality with a pair of ripped-up boyfriend jeans and some tough gal wedge booties. It's an easy look to put together and pull-off, and the glow from the necklace guarantees that your face will likely remain the focal point of your look, instead of the latte that you may have spilled down the front of your shirt during the in-flight movie.
