From squeaky perspex belts to outrageous pops of neon, our obsession with kitsch (stemming from the ubiquitous 80s trend) has shown no signs of slowing down. But for SS18 we’re refining the tastefully tacky vibes slightly to fall in line with the warmer weather.

3 PAIRS OF EXTRA EARRINGS TO GO OUT IN
By Maybelle Morgan, 27 April 2018
Subtle is not the aim of the game here, but why would you want it to be when the earrings are this dreamy? Near shoulder-grazing, the three-tier drop set-up adds a luxurious, almost antique feel. Make sure the focus is all on the jewellery by keeping your neckline bare and rocking a centre-parted, scraped-back low ponytail.
Chin-grazing and cascading down in a chandelier shape? Yeah, hands up, we admit it might seem a little extra from a distance. But the finer, thinner metal structure of these ASOS DESIGN earrings prevents them from going OTT, and instead adds instant Scandi appeal. Keep makeup minimal and pair with either a black or white blouse for some low-key night-out chicness.
You know when a mash-up of eclectic elements come together and just magically work? These earrings, right here. With a ruby stud, abstract metal bars, pearl detailing as well as chain-drop sections and plating, they're a handful for sure. Match with the most minimal of outfits for some serious above-the-shoulders impact.
