8. Pearls
Revamped, reinterpreted and refurbished, the classic pearl is back with a vengeance. Our favourite iteration? The pearl and jewel-embellished Dolce & Gabbana headphones.

9. Oversized bags
As much as we love the miniature bag trend from the last few seasons, we will admit that downsizing has been a challenge. Upsizing, on the other hand, is our forte.

10. The statement solo earring
We love it when fashion is impractical yet practical. In case you ever lose one of your earrings, rock the single earring trend.
