HOW TO WEAR STATEMENT EARRINGS NOW
By Eleanor Dunne, 20 November 2018
Statement earrings – is there anything they can’t do? They add the final finesse to a going-out-out dress, bring the glam to a downtime look and generally save the day when you need a little outfit (and life) pick-me-up. And this season, the game-changing accessory is more eye-catching than ever. From sparkling stars to megawatt hoops, here are three ways to get on board this season.
There were enough gem-encrusted hoops on the AW18 runways to start a fairground game (we're talking Tom Ford, Chanel and Balenciaga, to name a few). For the Isabel Marant show, Gigi Hadid sported huge, oh-so-sparkly versions with sleek hair and a luxe velvet dress. Hello party season inspo.
Some fashion rules were made to be broken, as ASOS Insider Barbara proves with her more-is-more accessories approach. Statement earrings for daytime? Yes please. Sportswear and sparkles? For sure. Two standout pieces of jewellery together? Sign us up. Wear your statement sparklers with your hair up to show them off.

Knits and glitz are the unexpected pairing you never knew you needed in your life – until now. Make your sparkles work for daytime by balancing out the glitz with dressed-down knitwear and cut-off denim or tailored trousers. Oh, and logo tees and sweatshirts work just as well, too.
