OK, we admit it… when it comes to statement jewellery, we’re addicts!
An eye catching accessory can liven up even the simplest of outfits. In the fashion world statement earrings are a go-to for every occasion.
The classic 60s style is all about monochrome. Oh, and when it comes to earrings – the bigger the better! Legendary models like Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick created some of the most iconic looks of the era and these ladies knew how to work a statement earring.
Want to go full out 60s? Finish your look with lots (and lots) of eyeliner. Try a retro look with these picks from the H.Samuel collection.
2. Bright, Bold and Fabulous
Colour has made a comeback! We love statement colour block earrings, as shown on various catwalks for Spring/Summer ’16. Recreate the colourful look with some bright and beautiful earring designs.
3. Rock Chick
Statement earrings in the 80s had a rock chick edge: think Madonna, Cher and Debbie Harry. Dangling crucifixes, stars and lightning bolts were worn among big, undone hair styles with a smoky eye and leather jacket.
The hoop is back!
There was only one style of earrings worth wearing in the 90s and that was the statement hoop. Stars of the era like Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez started a trend that lasted well into the noughties, when everyone, except Gretchen Weiners, had a pair.
