1 GOLD HOOP EARRINGS For days when you wanna look J.Lo glam. These shouldn't be so big as to look like you haven't got over the gypsy trend, nor so small as to make you look like a three-year-old on a council estate.

2 A BERET For bad-hair days. It will take you straight to Kim Basinger in Batman. Just don't obsess about the angle: they should be worn with nonchalance.
