There are certain style tricks I’ve discovered throughout my years as an editor that definitively help me tackle life’s pesky little obstacles. An incredibly stylish skirt can divert attention from your pimples. A chic pair of high heels is your savior when you feel frumpy. And a pair of bold earrings will distract from any bad hair day. This one I admittedly use a lot. Not only because I’m lazy about washing and styling my hair (but really, who has time these days?), but also because I’ve become obsessed with statement earrings.
Since their rise to fame last year, striking earrings of every shape and variety have been omnipresent—from dynamic danglers seen on the S/S 18 runways to the structural pieces fashion girls wear on the streets. And they’re no longer reserved for fancy parties, either. Larger-than-life earrings are perfect for day to spruce up jeans, tees, and dresses. They even make my cable-knit sweaters look strikingly chic.
A bold and beautiful pair of earrings has the same effect as a great blowout. You feel done-up, dressed-up, and ready to face the day (even though you probably haven’t washed your hair in days). But really, who can tell? Just look at those earrings!
