5 Elaborate Earrings For Special Occasions

5 Elaborate Earrings For Special Occasions

I admire women who wear earrings well, especially those with short hair who manage to look cool?rather than clown-like. Elaborate earrings make a strong statement and can be an inexpensive way to add real personality to your look. Here are five pairs to covet now.

These brass and marble drop earrings look so much more expensive than their €20 price tag. They have real character and are full of gorgeous contrasting textures.

For those of you like me, who haven’t quite gotten round to having their ears pierced (it’s on my to-do list … ), these exquisite clip-on earrings will give you the kind of added glamour that sometimes nothing other than earrings can offer. These feel very Hollywood Golden Era.

An ethnic-style piece always works really well in summer, but these will add warmth to an autumnal outfit too, with their earthy coral and blue marbled stones.

Foxy Ink earrings, €7.99 at Parfois

I love the retro style of this gorgeously elaborate pair. They’re fun, but will look so chic when worn with a paired back outfit of soft, textured neutrals.

Floral chandelier earrings, €105.30 at jcrew.com

For the modernists among you, these shiny brass bars balanced on a delicate crescent’moon shaped piece will make just the right impression. & Other Stories has a gorgeous collection of minimalist jewellery if that suits your style.
