Plus Size Accessory Style Inspired by Adele

For those of us who aren’t minute, having style can often feel like a near impossible task with the majority of the high street being aimed at skinny minis, with bodycons, clingy fabrics and revealing cut outs everywhere we go. Fortunately, when it comes to your accessories, the world is your oyster and Adele shows us how it’s done - turning any outfit into a success with the use of a few simple accessorising tips to achieve ultimate plus size accessory style.   The look: Big hair with statement earrings. Adele elongates her face by putting it into her signature bee-hive style which takes hair away from the face and ears giving the perfect platform for a pair of big sparkly earrings to dazzle the crowd framing the face perfectly.

  The look: The Black dress with matching accessories. A black dress is the perfect background when you’re trying to really show off your sparkles and one of the most slimming colours. We love Adele’s matching earrings and ring. Tying accessories in together gives this look a sense of completion and unity.

Choose It, Style It, Shoot It... The Teardrop Earrings by Not Dressed as Lamb!

Time for another Choose it, Style it, shoot it and this week we're talking to blogger ambassador Catherine from the style blog, Not Dressed as Lamb about how to wear dressy earrings for day. Rose Gold Teardrop Earrings by Not Dressed as Lamb Teardrop Earrings by Not Dressed as LambWe love how Catherine has taken quite a dressy, sophisticated earring and turned it into the perfect day wear piece with pastel hued clothing and statement pieces. The rose gold of the earrings works perfectly with the blush pinks and whites of her outfit while the burgundy shoes pull the whole look together. "I chose the rose gold teardrop stud earrings because they're subtly glamorous - very pretty but quite fierce at the same time. I'm really loving rose gold over standard gold at the moment so it was nice to have the different colour options." Teardrop Earrings by Not Dressed as Lamb"I wore them with winter white and blush pink - one of my favourite colour combinations this winter. I liked the contrast of the soft chunky knit of my scarf against the sparkle of the earrings; scarves always hide necklaces in winter so I like to wear fabulous earrings instead." "They'll look great with my hair up come Summer, which I'll be more likely to do once it's a bit warmer. I'm always partial to yellow dresses for the summer (I have three), so they'll be a lovely piece to wear with sunshine yellow - and white too. I like the idea of an all-white outfit with rose-gold jewellery: very chic and simple - let the accessories do the talking, I say!" Sounds great to us! To check out the full post and see more about Catherine's outfit, take a look at her Blush pink post here and stay tuned for another Choose it, Style it, Shoot it next week!

Everyone's Wearing... Ear Cuffs!

The trend for ear cuffs has come and gone over the last year without really making too much of a splash. After last year's Punk inspired Met Ball where Sienna Miller and Cara Delevigne were both seen adorning ear jewels of the edgy and spiky variety, there were ripples to suggest that this might be a trend about to blow up. But alas, apart from within the true punk scene, so far the ear cuff hasn't really taken off in mainstream fashion.

But after seeing a few of the, shall we say, less risque celebrities donning some upper ear bling on the red carpet lately, we are here to ask; Could 2014 be the year of the ear cuff? This year's revival already seems a little different however. Instead of being an accessory to toughen up your leather jacket and give off a 'don't mess with me' vibe, the ear cuff now seems to be taking a much more sophisticated route, being worn alongside chic up-do's, evening gowns and flawless make up. Celebrity Ear Cuff trend From L-R: Emma Watson, Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba, Lara Bingle and Sarah Hyland. Images sources here. First spotted on our favourite quintessential English rose, Emma Watson, who is normally known for her demure red carpet style, her cuff of choice was adorned with tiny swarovski crystals proving this accessory needn't be pigeon holed. This statement was followed swiftly by Miranda Kerr, who donned her cute as a button cuff with an oh so casual outfit, Jennifer Lawrence who wore a beautiful sparkling number at The Hunger Games Catching Fire premiere, Jessica Alba who chose a sophisticated snaking number and most recently with Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland choosing to compliment her chic up-do with a blingtastic cuff at The Grammy's this week. Yup, you heard it here first. It looks like the ear cuff is re-appearing in a much more glamourous form, and this time it might just be here to stay. What do you think of the ear cuff trend and how would you wear it? Tweet us @annalouoflondon, send us a pic of yours on Instagram or leave us a comment on Facebook.
