February is a weird month for getting dressed. Summer holidays are over but the heat definitely isn’t. And even though brands are starting to drop their autumn/winter collections, we’re not quite ready to make the wardrobe changeover just yet.

In my opinion, it’s the perfect month for investing in accessories, specifically jewellery. And this year, ear candy is in. If you’re not quite up for a new piercing, ear cuffs offer a less permanent addition to your lobe – but just as much personality. Sculptural styles are particularly eye-catching if you’re sporting slicked-back ’dos in order to deal with any per cent of humidity.
