Morning All

Today I have a guest post for you from the new plus sized fashion brand, Curvissa who tell you all about essential accessories for the summer months.  You’ll know from my previous posts that I’m a lover of jewellery whether its a dainty necklace or a statement piece, I just love how the right items can have the ability to completely transform an otherwise boring outfit.  As well as making clothes in sizes 14 to 32, Curvissa also make some gorgeous pieces of jewellery and when they contacted me about the brand, I just had to share some of my favourite pieces with you too!

Summers Essential Accessories

If your summer wardrobe consists of a few staple pieces, spice up your shorts and tees with some stunning seasonal jewellery, bought to your by new plus size fashion brand, Curvissa.

Drop Earrings

The ultimate in daytime glamour, drop earrings should be a permanent feature in our jewellery boxes. Wear them with jeans and let down your hair for a day at the park, or tie back your tresses and team your drop earrings with a gorgeous LBD for a stunning evening look. As this accessory is generally oversized, opt for a pair that flatters the shape of your face. Round and fuller faces will suit oblong shaped earrings as they will minimise facial fullness, whilst longer faces should choose earrings which bell at the bottom to add width.

Cocktail Ring

Keep a bejewelled finger on the pulse of fashion with a bold statement cocktail ring. This key accessory can play an essential role in creating individual style and adding a touch of glitz to any outfit. Whilst smaller rings can exude a simple elegance, a big and beautiful ring with added wow factor is perfect party wear and will leave you feeling instantly fabulous for your special event.

Boho Bangles

Wear your feminine charm on your sleeve with boho inspired bracelets. Thick and heavy by design, these chunky accessories should be worn in groups of three or more for a modern twist on a vintage look. Solid metals in shades of bronze or gold are perfect for the 70’s vibe that has heavily influenced this season’s trends and can be worn to add style and glamour to a range of outfits.

Statement Necklace

Go bold and adorn your neck with a flashy necklace this summer. Perfect for jazzing up a variety of looks, this season necklaces are all about making a statement in a unique and eye-catching fashion. Wear this standout accessory with a basic T-shirt and jeans to make your day time wardrobe pop, or in the evening to compliment a summer dress. Go as big and bold as you like with this one, and let your accessories do all the talking.

    These are gorgeous, especially the turquoise ring! Also, it's so refreshing to see a curvy woman like yourself modeling with confidence, you look absolutely beautiful. Women like you are what inspired my mom to accept her figure after struggling with weight her whole life. Thanks love.xoxo Madeline
