If you're anything like me, basics make up the backbone of your wardrobe. I've made it a point recently to invest in high-quality staples since that's what I tend to wear most. This includes items like straight-leg jeans, oversize button-downs, and of course, T-shirts. However, I still want to have fun with my outfits and keep my wardrobe feeling fresh, so I've leaned on accessories to do the heavy lifting. Adding a key accessory is a one-second styling trick with major impact, and for spring 2023, that accessory is the earring.

Designers like Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta sent models down the runways last fall adorned with big and bold '80s-style earrings, and the fashion world took note, myself included. After devouring all of the S/S 23 runways, I realized statement earrings would pair perfectly with my more parred-down outfits and instantly dress up even a simple jeans-and-a-tee look. Big metal earrings make your outfit feel thoughtful, adding polish and interest. Whether you pair them with a T-shirt, blazer, tank top, or even a swimsuit, big earrings instantly elevate what you're wearing. In case you're as ready to jump on the trend as I am, I'm sharing the 30 best big earrings for spring below.
