We all know an outfit isn't complete without the perfect selection of accessories. But knowing when to style an outfit with dainty or chunky jewellery can be the difference between achieving the perfect look versus failing to make a style statement.

Dainty – when less is more

There was a time when I wouldn't have thought to style an outfit with dainty gold chains or silver charm bracelets and the only dainty pieces in my accessories drawer were given to me as gifts or passed down as family heirlooms. But to my surprise the last few seasons have inspired me to invest in a mix of dainty chains, charm bracelets and simple stud earrings –perfect for layering.

Marc By Marc Jacobs $78

Dainty pieces are a great choice when you want to add a touch of femininity or subtly embellish an already busy outfit and can add that perfect hint of glamour to your lazy pair of boyfriend jeans and fave white tee. Try mixing different golds, rose golds, pewters and different shades of silvers together to make a statement.

Chunky – when OTT is a must!

I am big fan of over-sized and chunky jewellery – my eyes go wide when I come across a perfect statement necklace, that great pair of chandelier earrings or a set of gemmed cocktail rings. There is no denying that a piece of chunky jewellery can make or break an outfit and is perfect for mixing up your look with key season trends or for freshening up a classic outfit such as your little black dress or your go-to business shirt and pencil skirt.

Peter Lang $109

When in doubt, you cannot go wrong with embellishing your look with chunky statement jewellery when you yourself want to make a statement. Think cocktail parties, gala balls and a night out with the girls. When you are pressed for time, throw your favourite chunky jewellery in your bag along with your favourite lipstick to instantly transform your look from day to night.
