While the sizeable jewels on Burberry’s pieces are eye-catching, a top accented with diminutive baubles is easier to layer under cardigans or tuck into pants and skirts.
Chunky stones and dainty lace make an interesting juxtaposition, but an opaque embellished cotton fabric is better for the office (and for wearing undergarments).
To get more mileage out of the piece, choose a dark shade that will work year-round instead of a pastel. Navy is a good backdrop for gold– and jewel-tone crystals.
