How To Wear Glitsy Earrings

How To Wear Glitsy Earrings

We’ve become reacquainted with statement earrings in the last few seasons, but a new look is on the agenda, putting more conventional gold styles in the shade. Oversized diamanté earrings may harp back to the Butler and Wilson golden era, but fashion girls are reimagining the retro style, teaming OTT designs with more casual outfits for a bit of high-low balance. Want to join Sincerely Jules, Pernille Taesbaek and Gilda Ambrosio’s ranks? Here’s how to nail the look, courtesy of Zara…

Pair One

What: Crystal Dangle Earrings

Cool because: They’re an entry level glitzy earring – not too wide or fussy, they’ll slot subtly into relaxed, wavy locks.

Wear with: A simple edit to avoid any extra drama. Add the styles to a black T-shirt dress, flats and a biker to dress up the look.

Pair Two

What: Diamante Earrings With Tassels

Cool because: Of their vintage aesthetic – imagine art deco designs and Great Gatsby-inspired fashion.

Wear with: A modern look to balance out the throwback vibes. That means combining a few trends – a dress over trousers, snakeskin print and vampy red lip will reference the earrings’ glamour, without feeling like 1920s fancy dress.

Pair Three

What: Teardrop Earrings

Cool because: They sit somewhere between the first two pairs – a nice dose of glam, without being totally over the top.

Wear with: A grown-up evening edit; think a pretty dress and heels, with sharp tailoring to match. Why? The teardrop shape lends itself to a party look.

Pair Four

What: Rectangle Earrings

Cool because: They subvert the more classic glitzy earring style – a square shape puts a fresh spin on the look.

Wear with: Soft, feminine layers to take the edge of their angular shape and harsh gold finish.
