It’s no secret that statement earrings are having a moment. With all of the shoulder-baring trends that just won’t quit, statement earrings have become one of my favorite ways to accessorize my summer outfits.
Whether it’s colorful pompoms, tassels, oversized hoops, or pearl drops, you really can’t go wrong with a statement earring. While I’m not much of a bracelet girl when I’m working (since the majority of what I do is on a computer, I try to avoid that dreaded bracelet clack), and I typically go on the daintier side when it comes to my necklaces and rings…earrings are my one place where I love to get a little wild. Not only do they look SUPER cute in photos, but they’re a great conversation starter, and can serve as a welcome distraction from those sometimes (ahem) unruly summer hairstyles.
As long as the rest of your outfit is work-appropriate, the majority of statement earrings can work for the office as well, just save the more sparkly styles for your off-hours. I personally have teeny, tiny earlobes, so at first I was worried about them pulling on my piercings, but tassel earrings have been surprisingly light across the board, as are the costume pearl ones that I’m wearing here.
The best part? You don’t have to break the bank to rock this trend. In case you’re in the market for some new ear candy, I’ve rounded up my statement earring must-haves of the moment. (including some clip-on versions for those of you without pierced ears!)
