Kia ora / Hallo / Hi! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I’m so excited to kick off the week with a post on accessorising with statement earrings. For the past couple of years, I finish off almost every outfit with a pair of statement earrings and in my opinion, there’s no easier way to look put together!
One quick tip before we start, I did want to share a note about these Lobe Wonder Patches as they are amazing for minimising the weight that big earrings can sometimes have on your ear. They’re just little oval stickers that go on the back of your ear and make a huge difference so that earrings won’t tug or stretch your ear!
TIP 1: START WITH SOMETHING SIMILAR TO YOUR HAIR COLOR
If you’re just getting used to wearing larger statement earrings, I would definitely recommend choosing a style in a color that is a close match to your hair color. It makes the transition more gradual and allows you to slowly adjust to seeing that accessory pop on the sides of your face.
TIP 2: PAIR COLOUR WITH A SOLID (PREFERABLY WHITE)
Once you do get comfortable with larger statement earrings, it’s time to add in some color! Even if you’re not someone who wears a lot of color, earrings are a great way to throw in that colourful pop! I often prefer to let the earrings do all the talking when it comes to color and opt for solid tops to balance it out. White is always one of my favourite's for a crisp clean palette and it just seems so summery too when paired with a colourful statement earring!
TIP 3: ADD SOME WHIMSY WITH TASSELS OR FUN PATTERNS
Tassels are always a good idea and honestly I’ve found that they go with just about every outfit! They have a way of elevating an outfit while still keeping it casual and fun. Colour is also a win! Either add some colour to your outfit or in a stylish pair of earrings.
TIP 4: COORDINATE WITH YOUR BELT / SHOES
Coordinating your accessories is the easiest way to make your outfit still look cohesive and I love pairing my earrings with either a belt, bag, or shoes! It gives the pop of color something to anchor to and it’s also a fun way to change up your outfit for less!
TIP 5: GO FOR GOLD
And finally, gold is always in season and gives even the biggest statement earrings that look of elegance and class. Hoops are a long-time fave of mine but I also love the variations I’ve been seeing this season with different geometric shapes and finishes.
For me I know that if I can’t see my jewellery, I don’t wear it. I love these clear acrylic drawers that help me sort and store my earrings in a way that I have easy access to them and can see everything that I have at a glance!
I hope this was helpful! Feel free to share with us your outfit & custom made statement earrings. We would love to feature you on our page.
