Big is most definitely better when it comes to earrings for SS|17. If you want to be noticed this season then shoulder grazing, dangly, oversized earrings are definitely the way to go. The styles and shape choice are endless from vibrant colours, Art Deco, huge hoops, linear rods or fun emoji’s. Let the earrings make the statement so resist the urge to complicate your look with other jewellery. For maximum impact pair with a crisp white shirt (see our feature: how to rock a white shirt) or a block colour to emphasis your earrings.

It’s also acceptable, if not totally on trend, to go for the mis matched statement earring look. To achieve this keep the tones or shapes of the earrings similar.  You can always cheat and buy pre-paired mis matched earrings (seriously). When we heard this were off to forage out all our lone mis matched earrings which we’d kept for years.  However there is a skill to pulling this off with aplomb. Steph Sison’s, a renowned fashion writer, has compiled her thoughts on the matter in her feature on ‘Preview.

To give you a bit of inspiration we have curated our favourite go-big-or-go-home selection. Not surprisingly, Stella & Dot have a range of stunning statement earrings.  In fact we had to pull ourselves back by not including them all. Our new brand discovery, Ottoman Hands, have beautiful rose quartz drop earrings and and a range of fabulous tassel earrings including the coral tassels pictured below. And you can always count on Butler & Wilson for some beautifully crafted pieces with an Art Deco twist, below are two of our favourite crystal ones but check out their website for the rest of their stunning range.
