Why We Adore Statement Earrings

Written by Julie Weinstein

If I’m being totally honest, I wear studs almost every day. They are the diamond studs my parents got me for my 21st birthday. You guys, I’m 31. That was 10 years ago, but I seriously do wear them almost every day. Maybe it’s time for a new pair? However, even though I do wear those diamond studs quite often, I’ve been seriously feeling this whole statement earring trend. In fact, I’ve been on the hunt for some new statement earrings because I think they are so much fun and such a great way to add a little something extra to an outfit.

The thing is, I’ve never met a neutral I don’t like, and you’ll find me wearing grey, black, and white most days (crazy considering I work at Wear + Where + Well and I die over all of Carrie’s beautifully, colorful outfits!!!). With that being said, I do love adding a bold, statement earring to my look. It can really change up the entire vibe, just by way of earrings.

Take it to the Streets

If you haven’t already noticed, statement earrings are taking over Pinterest this season. And that’s because they’ve been seen on the runways and fashion week street style scenes for several seasons now. Everywhere you click, you’re going to stumble upon a stylish gal strutting down the street in some form of gorgeous, stand out statement earrings. Below I’ve rounded up favorite inspirational images I’ve come across.
