Oversized Earrings: Go Big or Go Home

28 Jul

Supersize your hoops

What goes around, comes around. This time it’s big and bold earrings right out of an 80s electronic dance video. Large showy earrings in hoop, chandelier, and chain style have been spotted on red carpets and city streets everywhere.

Kate Hudson added ornate jeweled feather earrings from Kenneth Lane to a bohemian halter dress for an exotic edge. While Jillian Harris of Bachelorette fame showed off gold filigree earrings from the Stella and Dot collection in several episodes of her reality TV series. 

The good news is that big earrings aren’t just for A-list celebrities. Anyone can pull off bold earrings, and at almost any price. Add the right pair of earrings and you can spice up any outfit. Update last year’s jeans by adding a pair of gold hammered disc drop earrings. Or, glam up a basic black dress with the latest chandelier earrings with Swarovski crystals.

How to Wear Big Earrings

Oversized earrings can be scene stealers so keep the following tips in mind when deciding which earrings work for you.

  • Consider the size and shape of the earrings in relation to your face shape. If you have a long face, avoid long vertical earrings that accentuate the length. For a round face, drop earrings (instead of round hoops) provide balance.
  • Experiment with any style of earrings if your hair is short. Just remember to balance your earrings with the outfit and other accessories you’re wearing. If your hair is long, try elongated earrings that follow your hair style and make your hair look loose and flowing.
  • Keep your earrings lightweight, especially if you plan on wearing them for more than a couple of hours.
