A statement necklace that hits you like a visual sledgehammer is the best friend of any classic, block-coloured dress. Not that a statement piece of jewellery has to equal something over-the-top or dripping in bling. And not that a simple dress always needs one. It simply means that, when you choose to wear it, it’s a bold enough piece to not only draw someone’s eye but to make a dress more than a dress – to turn it into an outfit. While we all take a different approach to our curated wardrobe, for me a statement piece of jewellery is a must-have and I always lean towards the exotic. Joanna Hillman’s emerald and gold necklace is that kind of piece, and the colouring is a good match for the navy-dress-red-lips combination she has going on.
