Get Your Bling On - Gorgeous Heirloom Jewellery

Glitz, glamour and pure decadence - next season, I guarantee that you will be dripping it.

If the latest high street hits are anything to go by, one of the biggest trends for next season is heirloom jewellery. With gorgeous jewels and costume drama aplenty (just imagine you're dining at Downton Abbey, and you're already halfway there), you need to step away from minimalism right now.

These are pieces that you will love and keep forever, just remember to rock them in a modern, fresh way. Pair with a plain t-shirt and leather skirt, or add a statement clutch to your favourite skinnies. Keep your outfit simple and let your jewellery do the talking...
