Trend Watch: Statement Earrings
My love of jewelry began as an obsession with earrings. Growing up, I would play with the boxes of costume earrings that my grandmother had passed down to me (oh, how I WISH I still had some of those!). Since she collected most of them during the 50's and 60's, they were almost all clip-ons, which were perfect for a 5-year-old fashionista like me. As far as I was concerned, the sparklier, the better. Of course, my sense of style has mellowed a bit since my dress-up years, but my love of dramatic earrings hasn't. This season, we are seeing a ton of statement earrings from the fashion industry's top designers. One of the things that I love about these latest designs is that, unlike the neons of last season, the colors in these pieces are actually quite demure. The juxtaposition of these familiar color palettes with unconventional shapes and exaggerated sizes is what lends each pair its dramatic flair. Check out the gallery of examples below–what better way to start the weekend than with a little earring eye candy?!
