From gangsta paradise to the high street, chunky chain necklace is today’s statement of all fashionitas and has been seen on many celebrities. Kim Kardashian and Rihanna lock up their urban looks with a big chain bling so why don’t you get one yourself? Braiding chain with fabric is another great way to add a little colour to your on-trend chain necklace. Either way, wear your it over a simple knitted sweater or basic tee for an instant impact.

During the winter 2014 fashion show, Donatella Versace gave her models’ looks a hard edge with cool silver tone spike necklaces, bracelets, cuffs and rings. The bold, in-your-face pieces with a chunky hanging spike embellishment showcase the punk rock attitude. Spikes usually grace chain necklaces, and go with a bead embellishment or any kind of rocker-chic details. They work equally fine while injected to an innocent preppy look or as a complement to the grounge-inspired tough-girl look. Girls, would you channel your inner Avril Lavigne?

Cuffs are the next big thing in jewellery, the perfect accessory to toughen up a ladylike look. Different shapes of cuffs are allowed, wearing on both wrists two. Cuffs will make a major statement when worn big, bold and in metallic colours. Whether it is silver, diamond encrusted, or in dazzling gold, this piece of fashion jewellery is sure to make heads turn. Need a styling tip? Keep the rest of your jewellery simple to make it standout.

Animal jewellery fuses the chic and the vintage. In the past few seasons we had cats, owls and foxes. But the latest jewellery trend to captivate the fashion world is by far more surprising: insects! Bugs, bees, dragon-flies in exaggerated forms were a theme of Lanvin’s collection. Although the idea sounds a bit creepy, designers created many captivating pieces of insect necklaces, brooches and cuffs. The standout bijoux will look splendid with any winter outfit you choose.

The unique, one-of-a-kind item made a statement on the runways of Spring 2013. Thanks to the exquisite fusion of contemporary and luxe, fashionistas love this stylish alternative to piercing: no holes, no posts, no clips, but still 100% style. Cuff earring trend continues its reign during winter months so feel free to adorn your ears with stones and over the top silhouettes of chains, studs, spikes and dangles. This is another type of jewellery that puts a sartorial spin on tough-luxe glamour.

Full finger rings
If you happen to be in the tough mood, think about the off-the-top and unconventional full finger ring AKA armour ring. The coolest rings I have seen have been all the rage on the red carpets with Emmy Rossum and Beyonce crowning their fingers with dazzling mix of diamonds, gold and gemstones. Full finger rings are usually worn as a contrast to the elegant gowns and dresses. If you think this is going just too far, stick to a few subtle knuckle rings.
