While the coldest months of the year likely had even the most adventurous jewelry-lover opting for simplicity by the end of the season, spring is now in full swing and it's time to bring a jolt of energy to those ears. After all, the warmer months tend to lend themselves to more bold, statement-making danglers given you can really show them off when worn with all your shoulder-baring looks. So, whether you live by the motto "more is more" or are just ready to up your earring game, now makes for the perfect time to dive into the maximalist earring trends that have been popping up on fashion-girl favorite shopping sites.
Within the retailers' new arrivals are a slew of fresh earring styles that are far from dainty. These head-turners hit on a range of silhouettes, from swingy, summer-ready tassels to sleek geometric shapes. However, they all have one thing in common: visual impact. And, since the trends cover a variety of vibes, there's a little something for everyone.
Continue on to see five statement earring trends to start shopping for the season.
Big Beaded Hoops
Beaded bags are still going strong, so it only makes sense that the playful material has made its way into other accessories, too. Add these to any outfit — casual or formal — for a touch of fun.
This trend is one that's blowing up quietly — but its growing popularity is undeniable (just look at the fact that fashion girl-beloved retailer Frankie Shop has now added the trend to its lineup). You can go bright with these shapes for a pop of color, or add a more elegant touch to your outfit with a pair in gold or silver.
It seems jewelry has been all about organic shapes lately — florals, pearls, and even sea shells. So what better way to add some contrast to your collection than a pair of geometric earrings? The shapes paired with bright hues will be an unexpected addition to loose, flowing summer ensembles.
This trend is for the true maximalist — it's fun, it's loud, and it doesn't shy away from being over-the-top. For juxtaposition, add a colorful pair to jeans and a white tee, or just wear them with your brightest outfit for a head-turning look.
Tassels seem to make a comeback frequently, and this season is no exception. These earrings are the perfect way to add some texture to your look, and there are plenty of options depending on your style. If you're feeling especially playful, throw on a colorful pair to brighten up your outfit, or keep it more subdued with a neutral option that'll make a more subtle statement.
