By the time January hits we’ve exhausted just about the entirety of our winter wardrobe, and though we’re eyeing spring essentials to invest in (more on that soon), weather-wise we still need to wrap up in sweaters and scarves. To keep things from feeling stale the next couple of months we suggest a quick and effortless upgrade by way of the statement earring.
The last several seasons this bold accessory trend has amassed major popularity. Runway designers like Loewe’s Jonathan Anderson, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, and the design duo behind Oscar de la Renta sent models out in artful iterations (as did seemingly every other designer under the sun). There’s also been a bevy of contemporary labels that have garnered cult followings for their bold bijoux like Annie Costello Brown’s geometric shapes, Laura Lombardi’s tube-like hoops, Rebecca de Ravenel’s pom-poms, and countless others.
The fad has even trickled into the high street circuit with more affordable options from favorites like Topshop and Whistles. So why are statement earrings the cold weather MVP, you ask? Simply put: they make every outfit more interesting, so when the very sight of the clothes hanging in your closet leaves you feeling uninspired, all you’ll need to do to get back on track are these bad boys. Whether you’re in a simple jumper and slacks or a blouse and midi skirt, slip on a pair of earrings from our edit below and your winter wardrobe woes will soon become a distant memory.
