Your new styling essential, the statement earring

Go big or go home. Yes, my friends, this motto was written for one of 2017's biggest trends; the statement earring. I'm not just talking glittery chandeliers oh no no. I'm talking statement earrings that don't just want to be noticed, they want to be SEEN and the make your entire outfit! From geometric colourful shapes, textured tassels and plastic fantastic, bold statement earrings are the quick fire way to breathe new life into the most basic jeans and tee combo. Perfect for when your #ootd needs a little bit of personality and there's no need to break the bank to get onboard! So ditch the straight up hoops and step away from the choker, here's some of my favourite danglers that are all worthy of some attention. After all, this season when it comes to your earring choices, size does matter!
