Fashion catwalks this year punctuated their outfits with oversized, statement earrings. If you’re not one to shy away from powerful colours, or making a big impact, here’s the summer guide of what to look for in an oversized earring.

Art-deco Style

Pairing contrasting colours, such as coral and turquoise, this style of earring uses various shapes and textures to create a lively, flowing piece. The inclusion of a metal fringe was a big feature on runways this year and pays homage to the 1920s costume jewellery trend. This goes to show that some classic styles never go out of date!

Geometric Patterns

This style of earring uses snippets of colour to create a geometric pattern that offsets the primary colour. Often framing a larger statement jewel in the middle of the earring, this piece goes well with a block colour dress.

Beaded Chains

Helping to create movement, the addition of hanging beaded chains creates an earring with length that mimics the effect of a fringe. Having a slightly vintage feel, these earrings are a great statement piece to wear when your hair is pulled back.

Interesting Shapes

Stainless steel silver earrings that incorporate unique shapes are your classic alternative to the statement earring trend. Featuring overhanging ovals and large crisscrosses, this style is perfect for an effortlessly chic look.
