When it comes to fancy occasions, it’s easy to get caught up in the latest accessories trends, but sometimes it’s the classic pieces that make the most powerful statement.

A string of pearls, a chandelier drop earring or a slimline black pump all stand the test of time when it comes to red carpet dressing.


Classic accessories are classics for a reason  – they stand the test of time, and work with almost any dress you could choose.


If you want to add a little twist on a classic, you could go for a classic shape in a shoe, but chose a colour that pops, or stick with the pearl necklace, but maybe in a different style than the standard string.


Classic is by no means boring when it comes to accessories – they are beautiful and timeless and easy to wear time and time again.


Here are just a few of my favourite classic red carpet (or black tie) accessories that you can get your hands on right now.
