Earrings are on of our favourite ways to glam up a look.
Alexa Chung uses red lipstick to detract from looking a little worse for wear on tired or hungover days, but we like to go for a statement earring.
No only for down days, we like to team a relatively casual look with a statement earring (singular or both) and they’re the perfect (and conveniently transportable) accessory for taking your look from day to night.
Shopping for earrings isn’t always easy though. Short of going into the store (and, really, who wants to do that when you can shop online?), it’s hard to see the details and imagine what they’ll look like on.
So, we’ve tried on our 10 favourite statement earrings right now, to show you what they’ll actually look like.
The obvious statement earring used to be the drop earring, but now we’re loving the edgier reverse statement studs. Though there’s still a time and a place for a seriously bold dangly style, we’re loving the look and versatility of these new style earrings.
Nicolas Ghesquiere kicked off the single earring trend last year, and since then we’ve been obsessed with ear bling.
For AW15, Givenchy got the award for most statement jewellery – do you remember those eyebrow rings? – but our favourites were the bold earrings at Balenciaga. From oversized pearls to more delicate drop pairs, it was an earring dream, contrasting the ladylike aesthetic of the collection.
Olivier Rousteing sent models down the runway at Balmain with single statement earrings, contributing to the fierce ‘Balmain warrior’ look.
