This summer, it’s all about embracing bold statement jewelry. When the weather heats up, it’s easy to rely on a signature set of outfit essentials and run out the door, so spicing things up with a hero piece (or two) is a must. Emily Ratajkowski’s red earrings make the perfect case for this, proving that no ensemble is complete without the perfect accessories — and, luckily, her specific pair is still in stock at one of your favorite stores.
The actor and designer recently appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon to promote her new film Lying And Stealing, set to hit theaters this July. For the segment, Ratajkowski wore a pair of bright red, pendant earrings from beloved affordable retailer, Mango. The set featured two oversized stones that were semi-translucent and hung right above her shoulders. The bold earrings provided the perfect contrast to a sleek (and otherwise understated) striped ankle-grazing nude dress by Dion Lee. She finished off her look with a pair of barely there gold sandals by Jimmy Choo. (The model's only other accessory was none other than her adorable new puppy, Colombo.)
To keep the focus on her earrings, Ratajkowski's makeup look also remained fairly effortless and simple. Her skin featured the actor's signature radiant glow and her eyes were lined with a smoky copper liner. Her hair was worn in its natural, undone texture, framing her standout accessories perfectly.
It's no secret that statement-making jewelry has been one of the year's biggest trends, with everything from shell-trimmed necklaces to bright, rainbow-hued bracelets being widely embraced. Brands like Escada and Balenciaga featured oversized, playful earrings on their Spring/Summer 2019 runways, whereas Oscar de la Renta and Prabal Gurung opted for strands of classic pearls at their shows.
If you’re hesitant about reaching for a high-octane accessory this season, take a page from Ratajowski’s style playbook and dip your toe in via a bold shape in a singular, vibrant color. Look for exaggerated or geometric styles to keep your look interesting and on-trend for the warmer months. And don't be afraid to play with colors and metals that might be out of your comfort zone. Statement earrings can make any plain or otherwise demure outfit look instantly glamorous, so consider using a bright pair to freshen up your favorite little black dress or wedding guest look this summer.
