The Earring Edit

Just the other day I was chuckling about the fact that fashion is so cyclical. Literally everything comes back round! Case in point, earrings... Just a two or three years ago we were all rocking gigantic sparkly, gem encrusted chandelier earrings, in every metallic finish available.

Briefly, the attention moved onto ear cuffs, and stacking rings, and then multiple ear piercings. Last summer we saw tassels and pom-poms dominate the earring (and accessory) arena, and this fleeting trend transitioned us into autumn/winter, with the arrival of festive tassels and pom-poms in hues such as oxblood, forest green, gold and silver.

Now, for spring, proper statement-making earrings are firmly back and it seems, here to stay for good. There are myriad options to choose from; sculptural and architectural creations, baubles, tassels and pom-poms, pearls, precious stones, minimal (and maximal) studs and hoops, mismatched, and even single earrings, from purse-friendly pocket money options to more luxe, premium options from independent labels and of course designers.

What I love about earrings is their transformative abilities - they can help you switch up your outfit from work to play, day to night in an instant. Throwing on a pair of statement earrings is a low-commitment way to trial a trend, and the right pair of earrings can make or break an outfit.

Why not let your earrings do the talking - let them shine through by wearing your hair tied back, minimal make-up, a simple outfit and the boldest earrings you can find!
