Weekend Shopping: Standout Silver

Posted: Updated:

I love busting out a silver shimmer- it's my go-to, year-round shade for adding sparkle to an outfit and I'm never without my Elsa Peretti for Tiffany open heart hoop style earrings, one of many silver chains and my beloved Frank Gehry torque ring but it's not just for jewellery. My disco ball style silver nails have been drawing lots of unsolicited compliments of late and I would lend someone my kitten for a pair of the silver Isabel Marant wedge heel trainers, pictured below.

In the fashion stakes, silver definitely scores higher than gold for me but maybe I'll be swayed as I prepare for next week's post (last week was all about bronze, this week is brought to you by the colour silver - can you guess what next week will be...?). In the meantime, check out my silver picks below.
