When it comes to jewellery, supersized earrings are the name of the game for AW16. Statement ear candy proves that more is officially more, and we’re super-excited about adorning ourselves with attention-grabbing pieces this season – but how exactly should we be wearing them? Here’s the lowdown on how to style supersized earrings for the new season.
The 90s Hoops
At face value, supersized earrings can feel really dressy but they’ll work with your off-duty wardrobe more easily than you might think. The trick is to keep things simple; your earrings should be the sole stand-out piece to elevate your outfit and everything else should be decidedly pared-back for a sense of balance.
The Embellished Earrings
Coat? Check. Hat? Check? Gloves? Check. So where do earrings come into the equation? For tips on pairing them up with our winter warmers, we turned to label of the moment, Marni, who mixed embellished earrings with faux fur textures for off-beat vintage vibes.
The Slinky Earrings
Supersized earrings are the definition of a party-perfect accessory which can be worn in two totally different ways. For minimalists who favour an LBD and heels, a pair of statement earrings will provide an instant high fashion hit without overshadowing your outfit. For maximalists, now is the time to pile the jewellery sky high; from necklaces to hair pieces, don’t be afraid to go OTT for a look that’s fresh off the catwalk.
The Drop Earrings
This is one fashion-forward trend that you can most definitely take to work. Clean lines and sleek tailoring will counter the heaviness of the earrings for a totally office-appropriate look with a high end twist. Opt for a crisp white shirt and a blazer, or channel minimalism with a turtleneck top and tailored trousers.
