Enamel baguette ring
Minimalism may be big for spring, but a simple piece of jewelry could save your look from dull monotony. Splashes of vibrancy such as this can lift an outfit in a nano-second. Hattie Rickards marries simple design with shocks of colour in this beautiful handmade range of enamel baguette rings. They are pricey, but using 18ct yellow gold vermeil on recycled silver and giving you the option to personalize your own colors also offers something a bit special.
Zara ruffle dress
Ruffles are big news for next season, but forget the frou-frou, new romantic, stuffy stuff. For spring 2013, the ruffles are more structured – stiffer of fabric and pared back of colour. Alas, precious few of us can stretch our budgets to the the much-talked-about Balenciaga collection. So top marks to Zara for this version, which will see us through the party season and beyond.
Lucy Choi high heels
Good shoes – gorgeous, comfortable shoes that don’t cost completely absurd amounts of money – are hard to come by. Which is why I have to tell y’all about Lucy Choi. Lucy is Jimmy Choo’s niece and spent 10 years at French Sole, the ballet pump label. Her shoes are beautifully made with walkable heel heights, so they really work as an all-day shoe.
Cos iPad cover
The design quality of handheld devices has got better and better over the past few years. But grim, industrial, greyscale covers have failed to match up to your sleek mobile or tablet. Well, throw open the curtains and let in the light – those days are over. Case in point: Cos’s new 100% leather iPad case, which fits in the tuck of your arm and looks like a beautifully designed clutch bag.
Asos metallic pointed heels
This year, comfortable, stocky heels are right on trend – and thank God. They walk the middle ground between flat pumps (potentially boring) and high heels (potentially lethal). Style-wise, these Asos shoes have a bit of everything: the shape says stern, but the brilliantly sci-fi colour-way says fun.
