Style inspiration: layer up on rings

Want some inspiration for how to make layerings of rings look great, without going completely over the top? Right now we’re loving the look of hippy, 70s inspired mood rings and cabochons. Think Abbey Lee Kershaw (one of our favourite models, who’s rarely seen without them) and you’re on the right track. Rather than punky skulls and knuckeldusters or the overly blingy sparkly cocktail rings, try stones like turquoise, amber, aquamarine, garnet, lapis lazuli and onyx.

Another hint: layer up, but don’t over clutter. You can also tie in thematic 2010 fashion trends like the future warrior (you’ll see some cool armour-inspired rings after the jump) and the tribal trend.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
