SOMEWHERE BETWEEN the rise of chokers and the bandana revival, earrings have not-so-subtly claimed the accessories spotlight.

Don’t be haunted by the flashbacks of oversized hoops you were sporting in the early 2000’s, or the faux diamond drop downs you once paraded at your school formal.

Ear bling has been re-imagined for 2016, turning even minimalists into advocates of statement earrings.81b5aa53b23c79671afd95151042258cSara Donaldson,

It’s a case of making a statement in both form and size – oversized that is. From fine, geometric designs, to unconventional bejewelled creations, you can complete your look with a pair of loud earrings no matter your style. 

When it comes to statement earrings, the rules are: there are no rules.

Let your earrings do the talking with a delicate knit, or apply them as the finishing touch to bold prints and flowing silhouettes à la Sonia Rykiel Rykiel AW16

Hint: Looking at the runways of Autumn/Winter 2016, you can expect to see – and accept – the single earring look be revived. It may be early days (after all, it does take time for us to mull over and adopt the trends of the catwalk) but if Sonia Rykiel is doing it (and Gigi is wearing it) … it’s bound to catch on.Sonia-Rykiel-AW16Sonia Rykiel AW16
