For months now, jewellery trends have followed the "less is more" train of thought, and everything we wear — from rings and earrings to bracelets, necklaces and headpieces — has become finer than a fresh spiderweb. Well, friends, these big guys here are moving in on the prime real estate that is our ears, arms and necks, and the charge is being led by none other than Aussie style icon Lara Bingle. When we interviewed the blonde beauty a couple of weeks ago, we couldn't stop staring at her jewellery (pictured above). The chunky chain links, heavy rings and solid bangles were a breath of fresh air. . . and we'd like more, please. Click through to scour our top 10 pieces of chunky metal jewellery — there's enough to suit any budget and preference. This way!
You'd be hard-pressed to find two style icons rocking the same look (after all, nothing more stylish than individuality!) but one thing they've all been advocating? Zippered clutches. And we don't mean any old zips scattered anywhere on an envelope-shaped bag — these pretty pieces all subscribe to the idea that handbag contents are best accessed from the top. Having been carted around town by street style stars and models alike, it's clear that there's a new It bag on the scene, and just in time! With the weather heating up, there's no place for totes or heavy shoulder bags. Snap up an easy clutch and save that bag-toting energy for lifting up cocktails instead. Shop our top 10 picks here!
Gone are the days of the humble gold stud or silver sleepers. These days, earrings are here to make us sit up and take note, and this week we're turning the focus on earrings that form part of an odd couple. From naughts and crosses to ear cuffs offset by a tiny stud, we're loving the contrast between less and more when it comes to mismatched earrings. Diane Kruger, Gwyneth Paltrow and Miley Cyrus are just some of the celebs who've been giving the trend a red-hot go — the choice is yours whether you want to go all-out or just take the subtle route with a small pair, or even by just decorating one ear. Stick to similar colour and style groups, but remember: conformity is a thing of the past! Shop our top picks here, now.

We know, they never really went away. But whereas before they were a last-minute addition to an outfit, added just to ramp up the cold-weather protection, beanies version 2.0 are making as much of a statement as the rest of your clothes. And we're not lacking celebrity endoresment for these cheap and chic accessories — in the past few months alone we've seen Nicole Richie, Cara Delevingne and Jess Hart covering their locks with a stitch or two of the woolly stuff. Cara likes to take the edgier route with slogan-adorned beanies, while Nicole's all about the classic black slouchy. For you? We've got both options. Click through our top 10 — prices high to low — then add this cool-girl essential to your fashion repertoire as soon as.
Barely-there jewellery can be just as statement making as the oversized varieties if worn correctly, and a delicate necklace, bracelet or ring is the only hint of accessorising you need to make an outfit really shine, day or night. After seasons of stacking, layering and creating "arm parties", it's nice to see a return to the simpler things in life, such as the ultra-fine bracelet. Whether you're into rose gold, yellow gold or classic silver, designers and chain stores alike are keeping things simple and elegant on the wrist-wear front. Shop our top ten picks now!
When the models in Dion Lee's Spring/Summer 2013 private show made their appearance, we were completely focused on the clothing. . . until the models turned around. There, perched on the back of their heads, were divine slivers of silver cutting across their straightened locks. Call them head braces or call them halos — either way, they're hands-down the coolest way to accessorise right now. The silver ones featured in Dion's show are from cult Aussie jewellery label Sarah & Sebastian, but chain stores are embracing the trend, too. And it's not all about halos — click through our gallery and you'll see that cool metal headwear can take on many forms. From shell-shaped clips to gold spears, bun crowns and more, the opportunities are endless. This way. . .
We know tech accessories aren't really the kind of accompaniment you want to splash your cash on . . . But wrap your iPad into a beautifully-constructed sleeve and then tell us you don't love dressing up your gadgets. It's impossible not to love the fact that your possessions are being protected (remember how much that MacBook set you back?), and that what you're holding them in looks so cool it could be part of your wardrobe. In fact, we reckon some of the goodies in this gallery are just begging to have a run as an structured clutch. . .Click through to check out the coolest tech accessories we could find!
