With the start of London Fashion Week just hours away, panic over what to wear for the next 5 days has well and truely set in - not to mention how on earth we are to look vaguely stylish whilst queuing for shows in the pouring rain minus Hunter wellies and a cagool! But one thing we can well and truely rely on for that instant wow-factor (and that won't be affected by the hideous weather conditions we are experiencing - apologies if I can't let this go!) is a statement piece of jewellery. Designer Merle O'Grady is currently the name on everyone's lips. Featuring irridescent plexiglass and raw edged natural stones - her style is quirky yet timeless including a endless selection of signature chandelier earrings and spike cocktail rings. Her 'Emblem' necklace is on the top of our wish list and will work perfectly with anything from bright prints to neutrals for spring.
Emblem necklace, £340, Merle O'Grady at www.merleogrady.com (from Friday 19th Feb 2010)
