As much as we love a party dress, it is just not as versatile as jewellery, don’t you think? After all, how often can you wear the same party dress? More often than not, you wear it once (twice, if you’re lucky), and it’s back to the closet — replaced by the next favourite outfit.
Accessories on the other hand, have a much longer runway. They can elevate your outfit in an instant, and if you invest in some great looking statement pieces, they will never go out of style. Just whip them out again next year, and they’ll still be a cool addition to your ensemble. Here are some ear candies that you should own right now.
