Millie Mackintosh's new jewellery range launches at Dorothy Perkins this week. We chatted to her about the inspiration for the collection and got the inside scoop on her style.
DP: Tell us about the new jewellery collection; what's the inspiration?
Millie: I've always loved costume jewellery and dressing up. For the collection, I took influence from cherished vintage pieces that were passed on to me from my granny.
And why was Dorothy Perkins the right brand to work with?
The quality of DP’s jewellery has always really impressed me. It looks so much more expensive than it is.
Do you have any jewellery styling tips to share?
I love to wear bolder pieces with more simple outfits. I also like a matching bangle and earrings or a necklace and ring. Not everything at once!
What is your favourite piece from the collection?
It's hard to choose as I love it all, but the floral statement necklace is definitely a winner.
And what would you wear it with?
Some tailored shorts and a simple white blouse would be effortlessly chic.
Who would you most love to see wearing one of your pieces?
Olivia Palermo would obviously be amazing, but I’d also love to see my friends wearing my collection – It's such a diverse range.
What jewellery do you choose to take your look from day to night?
A statement necklace or some dangly earrings would instantly add some glamour.
How would you describe your style?
It changes day to day; I love anything with a boho feel so I try to incorporate that look into my outfits. I also love simple tailoring.
Has your style changed much since you first appeared on TV?
Yes, I used to dress very ‘Chelsea’!
Which trends are you loving for autumn?
Monochrome is always a great go-to trend that you can mix and match into lots of different looks.
What's the best style advice you've ever been given?
Dress to please yourself.
