10 Statement Earrings That Will Elevate Your Look

One of the most difficult aspects of putting together an outfit is accessorizing. Belts, shoes, bags are one thing and then there’s the madness jewelry. Do you want gold, silver, rose gold, gunmetal? Which metal best accentuates your skin tone? Are chokers still cool? How much layering is too much? A lot of the time this whole process of trying to step your outfit up with accessories gets so overwhelming that you end up just scrapping the whole thing and going with a minimalistic look. That’s wear statement earrings can come in to play. This one bold jewelry piece can do all the talking necessary to make your look come together in the best way. Even better, earrings are making a huge comeback. The age of the necklace is fading and it’s time for earrings to come into the sun! Here are 10 statement earrings that are everywhere right now that will take your look from 0 to 100 real quick.

1. Whoop Hoop!

You know what they say about big hoops… JK, don’t listen to that nonsense! Hoops are one of the best ways to wear an eye-catching earring, and size definitely matters here. Whether it’s a thick gold hoop that demands attention or a slender silver ring that hugs your earlobe, hoops are one of the easiest and most on-trend earring styles as of late.

2. Playful Pom-poms

For a more whimsical vibe, try a pair of puffball earrings! These are great for the summer because they often come in bright colors, so wearing an all-white outfit with a burst of color dangling from your ears looks so jubilant and warm. The other great thing about this trend is that they are extremely easy to DIY. Go to a craft store, pick out your favorite pom-poms and some earring hooks are you’re ready to make some homemade jewelry!

3. Dang! Look at Those Dangly Earrings!

Earrings that hang all the way down to your shoulders look so cool. It can blend in with your hair if it’s down and will give it an edgy look that not everyone will notice at first. You can get really creative with this style too. Pick between a simple chain or stand out more and have the tendrils be jewels!

Similar to pom-poms, tassels are a great way to add a fun twist of color and movement to your ensemble. Go big with a thick and long pair or play it more subtle with a neutral set! Either way, this is a great look for summer and beyond.

8. Loco for Logos

The brand trend has been erupting all over the fashion scene, especially for designer brands. The more logos you can show off the better it seems! From Gucci belts to Chanel labeled pants and now Fendi earrings, you can’t get away. For most people, the prospect of buying high-end jewelry just isn’t going to happen. So, I would say try scouring flea markets and antique stores for old designer treasures. Or, try cheap online stores that are surely making dupes for these styles in their jewelry departments!

9. Tantalizing Tortoise

Tortoiseshell is definitely one of my all-time favorite prints. It’s especially great for accessorizing around your face. Tortoiseshell glasses and earrings seem to be less harsh than some other styles and prints close to your face. If you’re looking for a more natural look, try these out for sure!

10. Brazenly Bejeweled

One of the easiest and most classic ways to make a statement with your earrings is to do it up big with the gemstones. More is more in this category. The bigger and brighter the stone, the better. You can never have to much sparkle and shine with these earrings! A great option when looking for a bold and colorful statement earrings!
