4 Ways To Wear Statement Earrings To Steal The Show

The bigger the better.

August 29, 2017

Let's take a more-is-more approach with jewelry. What makes statement earrings such irresistible fun is that they're supposed to be brightly colored like candy, obscurely shaped like toys, and as big as you please. If you're proudly extra, you'll already know that statement earrings complement any look, but if you have a more lowkey vibe, they're an easy way to take a fashion risk.


Here are four kinds of statement earrings that you should try out this season.

1. Seek out something sculptural

Seaworthy's earring design was informed by Matisse's work, which explains their artful vibe. And as if they couldn't be cooler, the layered pieces are attached with headpins, giving the earrings a mobile element.

These handsy earrings by VERAMEAT were inspired by line drawings. For that reason, these earrings are strikingly bold — a pair of eye-catchers, no pun intended.

2. Embrace your gaudy side

The word "gaudy" typically gets a bad rep, but hear us out. Consider this category to describe earrings that are so bright, blingy, and ornamental that they can't be missed. Take any of these pieces from Lulu Frost — these babies will be the centerpiece of your look and a conversation-starter at the same damn time.


This pair from Jiwinaia are a sensory overload in the best way possible — a sparkly, candy-colored mashup that'll feel like a party when you put them on.

3. Try a touch of texture
