How to wear statement earrings

Statement earrings are having a moment - and this season, size matters. From sleek metallic drops, to textured tassels and oversized hoops, this trend has taken the AW17 catwalks by storm. It's a little bit daring and a lot about making a stylish statement. Effortlessly nail the trend with our three top tips on how to wear the look.

1. Shape-shifter

Play with proportions and consider the shape of your earrings. Whether you opt for geometric lines, decadent silhouettes, or something rough and edgy, choose pieces that not only compliment your face shape, but also work with the rest of your outfit to create balance. If your earrings are on the heavy side, balance them with silks and cashmere. For minimal outlines, go for a contrast with chunky knits or faux fur.

2. Whip your hair

One of the key aspects to think of when styling statement earrings, is how to wear your hair. If your lust-worthy locks are loose, sculptural studs work well as seen at 3.1 Phillip Lim. For anything with a drop, avoid tangles and keep your hair pulled back with a sleek low maintenance ponytail to really show off your ear candy like the girls at Mulberry.

3. Be a basic

For this look, don't overthink it too much, after all fashion is meant to be fun and so it's totally acceptable to throw on a basic tee and let your earrings do the talking. With so many shapes and styles to choose from, this really is an accessory that can instantly transform the most basic of outfits without looking like you've tried at all and we're all about that off-duty vibe.

Now you have the details on how to wear statement earrings, it's time to shop the look.
