If there’s one set of earrings everyone should have in their jewellery box right now (read: placed in some ridiculously hard to find spot because “hot drunk mess” you has to always go ruining everything), it’s some tortoiseshell statement earrings.

Chalk it up to every/all fashion bloggers debuting their own babies on Instagram – they’re the hottest accessory of A/W18 and you don’t have to break your bank to own a pair. They look equally fantastic with your fancy workwear as they do livening up a zesty party outfit, and absolutely rule on days when your hair is about 40 years past the point where you should have washed it, and a slicked back bun is the only resort. Pop em on and your vibe goes from “is that a shiny hair-covered bowling ball” to “who’s that off-duty model” in seconds.

We’ve rounded up a few from around the traps so you don’t have to search yourselves.
