Remember the times when you used to throw on a pair of major earrings with the most basic outfit and—poof!—you were date-night-ready?Well,dear readers,those times are back.One of the biggest jewelry trends to hit the spring 2016 runways (which are still going on in Milan as we speak) is the return of statement earrings.Big,bold,colorful,and over-the-top danglers stole the shows at Oscar de la Renta,Rosie Assoulin,and Gucci.The best part about this trend?There's no reason to wait.Get ahead of next season's look and go big or go home (when it comes to your lobes,at least!).
As for how to style your door-knockers,chandeliers,and drop earrings,wear them for dressy events with black tie gowns or a cocktail dress.If you're wearing a simple LBD,opt for color and shine when you choose a pair.For date night and going out,throw a pair on to dress up a simple white T-shirt and boyfriend jeans just like you used to.
The one place we don't see this trend working however,is at the office.Statement jewelry—earrings especially—can stand out too much and be distracting in an office environment.So keep them to nights and weekends and you'll be set.
Don't you just love it when trends come full circle—especially when it comes to bright and sparkly trends?
