Wearing a statement piece is not always the best fashion trick in the book, but it is also a great way to bring more attention to your outfit. During the hot summer months, who wishes to bother with a long blowout and lashings of makeup when a pair of earrings can create extra drama in an instant? For seasons now, our ears have been with multiple barely-there earrings (even the most conservative fashionistas out in the city have been inspired to add an extra piercing or two), but now it seems designers are now reminding us that big and bold is beautiful too.
Statement Earrings We’re Obsessing Over

Long classy earrings, £8.99 Link
Sculptural or twisted hoops in oversized proportions perfectly attract attention especially when they are given the freedom to skim over bare shoulders. When most of us are noticing the weather changes around the globe, others are noticing the recycling trend coming up in fashion.

Recycling The Trend
What is recycling? Basically, it is designers taking a style that was popular in the 1970’s, early 80’s and making it hot again with a modern twist. Some trends, we like to forget while others we don’t mind embracing with open arms and a sparkly smile.
Gold-tone hoop earrings, £400 Link
Designers like Zac Posen featured huge, chandelier earrings (that would down and round the neck, morphing into extravagate necklaces). Twisting tribal hoops were dawned at Louis Vuitton and bejeweled spikes gave off an elegant edgy effect. When it comes to wearing jewelry this summer, adorning your ears is the way to go.

Trying Out The Hot Trend
Go big, or go home, just be sure to scrape back your hair or style it into an (equally sizeable) quiff to get the full high effect.
For a casual style, wear the hair messy and natural. Pull the hair slightly back behind your ears for a true street style natural portrait. When you don’t fuss much with your makeup and outfit, you let the earrings do all the talking. Accessories seem to be the spark to light our fires this summer and it is making a mega turnout.
If you wish to give the dramatic earrings a more elegant approach, take the trend to new heights by pulling the hair back into a freshly styled bun or ponytail. The main focus is on the ears instead of other necessities.
Bold, beautiful, and defiantly not for the faint of heart. Statement earrings are red hot this summer and are a burning trend we can’t stop obsessing over.
