6 of the Best: Statement Earrings
From XL sweaters to supersized shearling, AW16 is all about going large. So amp up your accessories with the ultimate oversized earrings - they might just leave your ears burning…with pride.
Words by Laura Hawkins
These outré, crystal-embellished earrings emphasise Hedi Slimane’s (current) adoration of the eighties. For Helmut Newton-worthy sex appeal, pair with slicked hair and a sultry crimson pout.
From pop to op, art was a pervasive influence on the AW16 catwalks. Maison Margiela’s block shape earrings are immediate art-world wonders, best sported at Frieze London this month.
Over The Moon:
Stella McCartney’s brass and enamel moon earring provides interstellar pizzazz. For true out-of-this-world style, wear with Valentino’s leather biker jacket, hand-painted with scenes from the solar system.
Sophie Bille Brahe
Minimal and chic, Sophie Bille Brahe’s single pearl earring features two freshwater pearl fastenings. For statement off-kilter style, sport with an asymmetric shirt and choker.
Eshvi’s red and gold mismatched earrings resemble liquid lava. Add emphasis to their quirky colourway with a prismatic knitted jumper, courtesy of MSGM, N°21 or Moschino.
Lace, velvet and ruffles are all part of autumn’s romantic rulebook. For added gothic gravitas, pair with Simone Rocha’s black beaded drop earrings and secure your hair in a scruffy plait.
