We don’t often go all-out girly here at PHOENIX, but when we do, our inner magpies come out in full force. The onset of high summer has triggered a surge of embellishment, and we’re suitably dazzled. Be it dainty jewels or statement stones, a dash of embellishment is alluringly transformative. Swap your office necklace for a studded collar, or glam up a classic ensemble with some glittering Prada shades. If you’re after something demure, build an outfit around a neat new accessory rather than a statement central piece. Either way, this is us officially giving you permission to go crazy and embrace bling. You know you want to…
