Outfit Details: Forever 21 Top (less than $16!), Stella & Dot Earrings and Necklace
Colorful Statement Earrings, Your New Best Friend
What I love most about this trend is it makes it so easy to spice up any outfit in less than 30 seconds. Plus, unlike statement necklaces, I rarely have to consider what I’m paring statement earrings with. They work with all necklines!
Myth: Colorful earrings won’t match the pieces I already have in my closet.
The beauty of this trend is it actually does work with the pieces you already own. Take these blush, orange and red earrings as an example… Are they bold? Yes! (And ombre — double win!) But I’ve found they actually do go with most outfits — including this one that I featured in the fall. That includes looks with neutrals, similar color schemes and even opposite color schemes (like navy stripes)! The point of this trend is to make a statement, so that’s exactly what colorful earrings should do.
Statement earrings are also super flattering. They draw the eye vertically, making the face appear longer and slimmer. And who doesn’t want that? Plus, other people are drawn to them because these types of earrings, as the name implies, make a statement. ;) So, prepare yourself to hear some sweet compliments while embracing this trend.
Statement Earrings You’ll Love
Some people fear statement earrings because they assume they’ll feel too heavy. And while, yes, that can be true with some, it’s not always the case. I’ve worn the ones shown in this post for hours without discomfort.
Two in One
If statement-weight earrings still aren’t your thing, don’t worry! There are a ton of options that aren’t quite as heavy but still achieve the same bold effect. OR there are even versatile options like these that can be worn two ways — as a statement or a stud — which is the perfect no-fail way to try out heavier earrings for the first time.
