YES YOU CAN: Elevate your earrings

Fashion director Shelly Vella shows you how.

In my little black book of style tips, treating yourself to a piece of demi-fine jewellery will not just make you feel good, but update your look, too. If you like a classic style try the new take on pearl jewellery, which is both chic and modern, as too the more sculpted gold hoops on offer. For lovers of sparkle, look to the stars or try a dash of diamanté.
