    My addiction to pretty summer dresses means I’m often buying them on the high-street (quantity wins over quality on this one), but I’ve got one trick that always makes my outfits look much more expensive than they are: fine gold jewellery.

    This season is all about layering, and there’s something about delicate chains and vintage-style pendants that instantly elevates a summer dress.

    But I’m not the only one thinking it, so at the moment I’m scouting for more niche brands that not everyone is wearing (yet). Which is how I came across NU & MII, founded by designers and sisters Anoushka and Mimi’s, who are inspired by their travels and close-knit family ethos.

    And you’re going to love their latest Harmony collection, which ‘is about contrast and highlighting both sides of style. We believe in the girl that is edgy yet classic, sexy yet subtle and unique yet versatile and Harmony reflects this perfectly; delicacy whilst making a statement.’

    Think sterling silver and gold talisman pendants, vintage-style signet rings and semi-precious stones like the moonstone, which is a great holiday buy (‘we wanted to rework classic styles with a modern twist for the everyday stylish and edgy girl’).

    More is more in this case, so layer to your heart’s content.This is what I’ll be buying for the summer.
