Stylist extraordinaire Rachel Zoe and her fab TV show ‘The Rachel Zoe Project’ first introduced me to the sparkly world of cocktail rings. Rachel will often keep her clients’ outfits quite simple and let the accessories do all the talking – in particular a statement cocktail ring (or 2 or 3).
I love that cocktail rings can have such a spotlight effect on an outfit and can make you feel super glamorous so easily.
Now allow me to indulge myself you in an imaginary week of my life featuring 7 fabulous cocktail rings to help tell the sparkly story…
Mondayitis has struck in a major way and it’s not even 9am. No time to think about putting together an amazing outfit, so I throw on an ever faithful all-black ensemble. I add some crystal stud earrings and this Big Bow Ring, which instantly lifts my mood – especially when I’m clutching a skinny flat white and watching it sparkle so beautifully in the morning sun.
Unsure about whether to go with yellow or rose gold accessories, I embrace them both by slipping on this Harper Pave Oval Stretch Ring. I use the ring as inspiration and design my outfit around it – tones of cream, blush and caramel. I’m feeling fresh and ready to take on the day.
Hump Day rolls around and with it, a day of meetings. What better way to dazzle (or distract) my colleagues than with this Oversize Crystal Flower Ring. The sparkly accessory seems to have the desired effect and is an instant mood lifter.
And so begins the downward slope towards the weekend. Looking ahead makes me want to glam up, so I call upon this stunning Sunburst Cocktail Ring. Taking my cue from Miss Nicole Richie herself, I get the curling wand out and rock some loose waves, a sassy attitude and a wry smile.
TGIF!! I’m in a playful mood so why not have some fun with my accessories?? This Lady Bug Ring is the perfect playmate to get me through the last working day of the week. Isn’t she a cutie?! We’re going to have some fun…
Ahh Saturday, my favourite day of the week. The only day where you can do exactly as you please all day and all night. I want a versatile cocktail ring that can be worn casually during the day with a denim jacket and leopard print scarf, and dressed up with a gorgeous little black dress and heels in the evening. Enter this Angel Wings Ring in rose gold. Divine.
It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday – the perfect reason to have a picnic in the park with some friends and their kids. Keeping my outfit cute and casual, I slip on this Minnie x Mawi Ring, knowing it will be a hit with the kids. Not to mention the adults too. Happy days…
When do you rock a cocktail ring?
