S/S 2012 Challenge #14: The Statement Earring

“Chandelier, dazzling drop and supersized cocktail earrings finish summer’s ladylike styles with elegance.” net-a-porter

The other accessory we must devote attention to this season is a pair of shoulder-grazing Statement Earrings.

Operative word being “Statement”.

So think Oversized, Chunky, Flashy, Quirky, Colorful, Super Long, Bright, Dramatic.

Then, they say – wear it ladylike and elegant.

But, I say, break those rules! Wear it chunky and style it casual.

The next time you’re at a store, try on a pair of chunky piece and you will notice that the current notice-me-now accessory will frame your face or neck-up in a way no other accessories can. I will suggest a longer pair if you have a wider face shape and a broader pair if you have a longer face.

Similar to the tips on how to wear a statement necklace, I will also recommend the following style tips:

1. Keep the outfit simple: your earrings should make the necessary statement without having to fight for attention but it doesn’t mean limiting to only wearing neutrals. Choose brighter colors as an outfit or pair colorful or textured earrings with a clean-cut outfit.

2. Keep the other accessories minimal or complementary: when wearing with necklace, keep the necklace thin or small, bracelets/bangles/rings can complement through color and these away-from-face accessories can be chunky if you fancy

3. Style oversized earrings with casual outfits: this season, with the shorts taking on a whole new place in our summer staples, I’d recommend making it a point to dress your statement earrings during the day too.
