As you’ve probably noticed, as a stylist, I’m a big fan of accessorizing as an instant way to freshen up any wardrobe. From trendy bags to modern jewelry accessories, I’m always trying to find new accessories for my clients to pair with some of their staple wardrobe pieces to elevate their favorites to new heights. Today, I’ve chosen to focus on one item I’ve noticed that can be used to dress up any outfit: statement earrings.

Statements earrings are a piece that can be key in many outfits, including your favorite LBD or pair of jeans, to give your look a more formal and updated appearance. Although there are many different accessories that can be used to dress up a look, I chose to focus on statement earrings today because of their versatility. They can be used to dress up anything from the most formal to the most casual outfit, allowing great options for my clients and myself. If you’re interested in learning more about how to wear your favorite statement earrings or other accessories to perfect any outfit, you can learn all about it in my new book, How to Accessorize: A Perfect Finish to Every Outfit, which talks about my passion for accessorizing and provides tons of outfit inspiration.
