Statement Earrings

As I purchased my fourth pair of earrings in as many weeks (at Notting Hill pop up West Eleven), I realised how much I love a good earring. Its the quickest way to brighten up an outfit. I’ve built up quite a collection over the years (although I don’t normally buy four pairs a month!). Earrings don’t need to be expensive, making them a top tip for an outfit update. A drop earring will elongate your neck, especially with hair up.  I do love a small subtle, delicate earring too, but for making a statement, these are some of my recent favourites:

Green Beaded Chandelier Earrings – very old but some of my favourites- by designer Philippa Kunisch.

I have to be careful that earrings are not too heavy in the ear – it just makes for an uncomfortable evening if they’re pulling – so make sure they’re light. Also, it goes without saying, the cheaper the earring, the cheaper the materials, so don’t wear them too long or your ear piercing will go black!

Below are some of my current favourites for dressing up a Christmas outfit:

From Left to Right:
J Crew Blue Beaded Tassel Earrings £65
Gucci Drop Earrings £510 (I wish!)
Mango Ball Pendant Earrings £9.99
Lulu Frost Earrings £90
Wild Hearts Black Ear Cuff £56
Toolally Perspex Earrings £40

      I stopped wearing them when my daughter was little (grabby hands) but often pop a pair on for a quick fashion fix. Wish I could track down the designer of those green ones as I’d love another pair! X

    So glad I finally got round to checking your website. Love it. Great inspiration and diversity!

    As for the earrings, in love with the yellow J.Crew. Don’t wear enough jewelry but when I do, I tend to be tempted by the boldest accessories…
