Five Key Accessories - What You Need Now

Accessories are the lynchpin of every outfit.

They can transform a look from so-so to sensational, from blah to breathtaking, from 'meh' to memorable.

I am firm believer that every outfit is incomplete without a least one shiny bauble to complement it. Sometimes three, if placed strategically and all working in harmony.

Here, five key accessories - all Samantha Wills. The Australian jewellery designer scours the globe for inspiration and creates the trends. All can be adapted to an existing wardrobe. Or do what I often do: plan an outfit around that piece.

The five pieces, in myriad versions, every woman should own are:

A ring

A brooch

A necklace

A bracelet, bangle, or cuff

A set of earrings

Of course, I haven't added belts (I am ob-sessed with them: cinched in, low-slung, studded, whatever) and hats to the mix. And shoes. Whoa, that's a whole other blog post.

But I am very partial to jewelled accessories - my home is full of them. In the fruit bowl on the dining table (I am not kidding), in pristine plastic storage compartments, stored in the distinct Samantha Wills Balinese boxes (for SW pieces only - otherwise, it is deemed sacrilege for SW purists like me).

The only quandary is quantity. How much is too much?

The answer is simple.

Never enough.

  1. I'm not sure if the earrings and necklace are hers as I haven't seen them before but the cuff is DEFINITELY NOT Samantha Wills.

    It's made by a company out of Noosa and they call their jewellery "FUTURE STATE". They sell on ebay with "if you like Samantha wills, you'll love Future State" or something like that in their listing titles.

    I know it's theirs because I've looked at it for weeks wondering if I should buy one.

  2. Wow, thanks for the heads-up...! It IS indeed a stunning cuff... go for it! x
