The latest au courant accessory trend is taking earrings to new heights, or more accurately, lengths. It’s all about the statement earring, featuring lots of color and dangle, and we couldn’t be more excited. Sure, a stylish stud is still our daily go-to, but sometimes it’s fun to have all eyes on your ears, and for spring designers such as Peter Copping at Oscar de la Renta sent models down the runway with earrings that all but grazed their shoulders. Discover a few of our favorite bold baubles and some tips for making them work with your wardrobe.
3 Tips for Nailing the Look
If we didn’t know any better, we’d think that the statement earring was pushed into the spotlight to serve as the perfect complement to spring’s other big trend, the shoulder-baring top. Never have two trends been more made for each other, so consider giving them both a go.
To get the full impact of a statement earring, you need to be able to appreciate the long silhouette. Sporting an upswept hairstyle when rocking these baubles is the best way to maximize the look.
If shoulder baring for you lies somewhere between “no way” and “never going to happen,” try taking an opposites-attract approach to your ensemble instead. Pair an ultrafeminine pair of chandelier earrings with a masculine oxford shirt, buttoned all the way up.
