To copy the TOWIE jewellery style and look, the key thing to remember is that big and bold accessories and looks are the way to go.

Before hitting the town for a night out, picking up the perfect accessories to match an outfit is a big consideration, with Lauren Goodger recently being snapped wearing an oversized oval ring set with a large green stone.

The item perfectly matched the green blouse she was wearing and made a real statement when worn with her otherwise demure outfit.

Sparkling jewellery is also a way of dressing up a simple outfit, as Lauren Pope showed she recently wore a ring set with three rows of glittering stones that brought extra glamour to her figure-hugging black bandage dress.

Ladies designer watches are also a big look with the girls on the show, as Sam Farriers, Lydia Bright and Lauren are all regularly seen sporting large timepieces made in a range of precious metals and sporting sparkling details.

To complete your look, a pair of sky-high heels, a co-ordinating clutch bag and a slick of pink lipgloss are all that you need. Now go and work your own version of TOWIE jewellery style!
