Don’t be afraid of colour
A neon necklace will transform your neutral top and jeans and is a great way to introduce colour without jumping in at the deep end.
High shine metals will take years off
The light reflecting particles in concealers and foundations are there to make us look younger (and less tired!) and the same principle works for a reflective necklace to lift your complexion.
Try fabric-backed or cord styles
If bling ain’t your thing or you need something a bit softer as you’re carrying a newborn here, there and everywhere then opt for a flat, satin-backed bib style or rope-look necklace without any edges that might catch.
