Theresa May A-Z: O is for Oversized Accessories


Go big or go home! Theresa May is a pro at rocking an oversized accessory.

With an impressive collection of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings, the PM mixes up her work wear look with many statement, oversized pieces.

Jazzing up an every day navy suit, Theresa May usually sports a bubblegum sized string of oversized pearls, wearing them to PMQs and official functions. Similarly, the PM wears a gorgeous strand of mixed coloured pearls, all slightly large in size.

Two of May’s most popular and most worn oversized accessories are necklaces. The chunky silver chain and matching bracelet from Amanda Wakeley sold out soon after May wore them on the steps of Downing Street in July 2016. Repeat performances at PMQs and foreign visits made the set a must-own item – and they’re back in stock! May’s other oversized necklace is the blue Balls piece from Mirta Bijoux. The star of the Cabinet’s official photo, the necklace is often worn by May with a sky blue coat and navy shift.

A friend recently met the Prime Minister and helpfully studied her jewellery for me! May’s large, rectangular bangles, depicting famous art prints and abstract patterns appear to be made of Bakelite or a similar material. These appear to be one of her favourite accessories, wearing a patterned bracelet in her official Prime Ministerial portrait and on numerous public appearances.

Not many people could wear such striking jewellery in a confident and chic way, but I could think of no one else who could carry off oversized pieces so well!
