Theresa May Style Spotlight: Mirta Bijoux

8.8.19


Theresa May has left her mark on political fashion and in the first of the series, we are looking at her love of necklaces from the Italian brand Mirta Bijoux.

Throughout her time as Prime Minister and as Home Secretary, May has worn the chunky accessories from Mirta Bijoux on a regular basis. Bright, bold and definitely outside the box, May has worn her Ballsmania necklaces with dresses, skirt suits and with casual weekend looks. From meeting heads of state to fielding questions at the dispatch box, the Ballsmania collection has been a firm favourite of our second female Prime Minister.

Let's take a closer look at the necklaces from the brand - and how May styled them.


Black, navy and pink

May has worn this one with a striking cobalt blue pencil dress from Amanda Wakeley. The perfect accessory!


Teal, turquoise and light blue

A 2018 holiday purchase, May added a colour clash to a red coat with this great necklace. She's also worn it with navy blazers and jeans.

Metallic blue

We last saw May wear this version of the Ballsmania necklace to the Welsh Conservative Party Conference in May. It added a little pop of electric to a crisp white blazer.

Navy

The first Ballsmania necklace we saw May wear, this classic navy version has been teamed with Daniel Blake dresses, Hobbs coats and jeans.

Gold

Tapping into the popular metallic trend, May wore her gold Ballsmania necklace and matching bracelet to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Red

Opting for another primary colour, May has worn her red Ballsmania necklace when appearing in front of Parliamentary Select Committees and also at Party Conference.


Silver

When one metallic just isn't enough! May wore her silver Ballsmania with a military knotch jacket from Daniel Blake- the silver picking up the metallic thread in this gorgeous tailored piece.

Black


Another classic, May usually wears this with a brown or black jacket. We saw it when she welcomed New Zealand's Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern to Number 10 earlier this year.




Taupe, orange and gold


An unusual choice for May, we've seen this autumnal version only once. When might it reappear?

There is much discussion about her bracelet - is it really Margaret Thatcher's much-loved stone bracelet that was recently sold at auction for £40,000? An iconic message if so.
