This summer, we’re ditching the minimal look when it comes to our jewelry. Instead, we’re favoring statement earrings that will make any look head-turning from jeans and a T-shirt to a colorful cocktail dress. In other words: Go big or go home. A good statement earring has the ability to be worn morning, noon, and night. We’re pairing them with little black (or white!) dresses for work, making a statement on weekends with off-duty denim, and making them our official plus-one for every party on our social calendar for the next few months.
From designers like Oscar de la Renta and Fendi to more affordable brands such as Zara and J.Crew, we’ve rounded up the beaded, the floral, the embellished rosettes, and the colorful enamel styles. There’s something for everyone, but the trend is certainly not for the sartorially shy. That said, it’s time to try out the best jewelry trend of the season by shopping these 20 summer statement earrings you now won’t be able to live without.
