The most important thing in fashion is to take what is on the catwalks and adapt it to your own style, and to the occasion. An easy and cost effective way to do this is with jewellery. Here are some hints and tips to accenting your own style with this seasons trends.

For the smart/casual look, which gives you the most individual choice as to whether to wear a dress or trouser suit and offers you many colours and styles, go for autumn neutral colours, for example moss green, grey-blue, or this seasons biggest colour a gentle violet. For a more striking look go monochrome or layer different textures of black, or warm coffee browns offer a gentler alternative to black.

If you have seen a particular colour on the catwalk that you like but feel is too overpowering for you then take it and add it to your neutrals in the form of jewellery. Purple and turquoise are the two of the most widely seen colours this season so go for a turquoise broach instead of the full coloured dress or a set of matching earrings and necklace.

For a cocktail party, where the cocktail dress can be your opportunity to take advantage of the bold colours. Turquoise suits all skin tones, purple can be used in any shade this season so pick on to suit you. To stand out from the crowd chili red or a bold flower pattern dress.

When accessorizing go for a simple, elegant chocker and matching earrings. Or a broach and cocktail ring. The important thing here is to let the dress shine on its own, keep the jewellery understated.

The classic dress, retro forties/fifties glamour is for the black tie do. Either tone down a bright dress with clear crystal or add a splash of colour to a black or neutral dress. Go for the matching set of jewellery to create a complete film star look.

The white tie occasion is your chance to go for all out glitz and glamour. Again the complete jewellery set and vintage fashion works well. Hair should be pinned up and extra long earrings worn for elegance. A large ring and large pendant to add sparkle.
When wearing a V-neck mirror this with a V or Y shaped necklace, a chocker is also elegant or, if not wearing a necklace a broach at the base of the V will add colour or sparkle.

A strapless dress provides a blanc canvass for a large necklace which can be bold or glitzy or for long chandelier earrings. Pick up the detail with a crystal bracelet or broach.
A short chocker or very long necklace suits a square neckline and again long earrings. Thin straps can be matched with delicate jewellery.

A round neck suits a large broach or extra long necklace. Go for lady-like chic especially with a polo neck, a round pearl necklace will match the shape beautifully.
Lastly, for an asymmetric neckline don’t wear a necklace at all, instead go for a bold pair of earrings or bracelet.
