In most cases, we don’t care for clothing that has a mind of its own (i.e., skirts filled with static cling, pants that ride up, straps that fall off your shoulders no matter how many times you adjust). But earrings are a whole other story. I’m talking the free-swinging kind, as in tassel earrings.
The trend has ebbed and flowed a bit over the last few years, but it still holds strong as far as statement jewelry goes. And what’s more, earrings with fringe are not just of the fabric, mini curtain–accent variety. Anything design with loose, hanging chains, baubles, or shine can also fit the bill. The only common factor: They need to move.
I tested out a version for myself (I couldn’t resist), but feel free to take the other 14 styles below for a spin.
For silver enthusiasts.
Sparkle is always a good choice.
These beaded tassels will move especially well.
A delicate dangly piece.
Sure, throw a logo on it.
Less of a tassel and more of a curtain of fringe.
No one will miss this blue hue.
Go for two tones.
The knot at the top is so classic.
My preferred swinger of choice: a single strand and lots of color.
Perhaps for a special occassion? Perhaps for a Tuesday?
Two trends in one: fringe and florals.
When just one ear is enough.
Two types of fringe—hanging chains and more delicate tassels—are better than one.
These get moving.
