I feel naked without earrings. Ever since I got my ears pierced when I was a kid, I was wearing as many earrings as I could get my hands on. For a very long time, I stuck to basic hoops in an assortment of sizes. That is still my staple, but lately I’ve been on a real statement earrings kick. Big, colorful and quirky! They’re basically right up my alley! There’s a few things I like about them, and a few I’ve even got my eye on.
It all started with *those* earrings from H&M. They popped up on Instagram and the world went nuts for them! I snapped up a pair, and from then, was a converted statement earrings gal. My default is definitely still hoops, but it’s nice to have a few other options!
They add a bit of pizzazz to any outfit
When it comes to dressing, I think I’m pretty casual. The nice thing about throwing on a pair of statement earrings is that it adds a bit of flair! Jeans and a t-shirt look so cool with big bright earrings. A cute summer dress paired with some dangling beauties? It’s a great way to go!
It’s a great way to try out new trends
As much as I’d love to say I’m trendy, I’m definitely not. Some trends just aren’t my style, but with earrings it’s a fun way to try new things. It’ll be a little easier on your wallet as well. I’m more inclined to try a new pair of earrings than clothing sometimes! If anything, I feel a bit braver with statement earrings!
No two pairs are the same
The best thing about statement earrings? They’re unique! All my hoop earrings look pretty much identical. Great for my general style, but where’s the fun in that? By building up a collection of earrings, I’m allowing myself a bit more creativity and inspiration. I said what I said!
