Statement Earrings Are Having The Last Word On The Party Scene
Invites rolling in?
Extravagant hoops and chandeliers are the ultimate plus-1’s.
This year’s holiday party season is shaping up to be the biggest and boldest yet thanks to an accessory trend that’s steeped in ostentatious style. Crystal clutches, you ask? No, keep those in the back of your closet for now. Could it be towering stilettos? Actually, it’s flats and kitten heels that are currently stepping out in style. But if you want to have your ears ringing with compliments, deck them with over-the-top adornments. Consider this your official trend alert: Jaw-dropping ear candy is now the new must-do eye candy.
Iconic Statement Earrings
Of course, statement earrings have been a part of our fashion culture since, well, forever. Early images of Cleopatra show the pharaoh queen wearing (gasp!) earrings (in gold and emerald, no less). And if you look closely at the gold coins featuring Helen Of Troy, you’ll see the Greek goddess and daughter of Zeus is wearing some hefty danglers. Plus, who can forget the legendary Elizabeth Taylor and her glam-tastic chandeliers dripping with diamonds? Her motto was, “Big girls need big diamonds,” and she wore those baubles like a second skin.
Modern Statement Earrings Are Music To Our Ears
Enter Queen Bey, Rihanna, and J.Lo, who never met a hoop or a chandelier earring they didn’t like. Those legendary shoulder-dusters Beyoncé is apt to wear are just as much a part of her persona as her staggering four-octave voice, while Rihanna has consistently slayed red carpets in her massive hoops. And J.Lo, has proved again and again that whether it's the Met Gala or a wedding shower, a long, shimmering pair of ornate earrings can elevate any outfit.
Why Statement Earrings Are The "It" Thing
Here's why you absolutely need statement earrings in your accessory arsenal this party season: They're transformative! A pair of head-turning earrings can switch up your look and vibe with zero effort. Going from simple to spectacular has never been easier. Statement earrings are your cape, shield, and glamorous calling card that asks the room to stop, stare, and admire. In other words, lavish statement earrings put you at the center of attention.
