Consider yourself the Anna Dello Russo of accessories? If so, those ears are in for a treat – and no, we’re not referring to ADR crooning Fashion Shower at the top of her vocal range!

Let us introduce you to the wonders of the statement earring: Rapidly kicking the embellished collar and necklace off their respective pedestals, statement earrings are your go-to add-on for an instant outfit lift.

And the good news is, you’re not confined to only wearing statement earrings with evening wear. Instead, pair them with a cosy knit and tailored trouser to take work wear from boring to bold, or wear them with your favourite biker jacket for a feminine twist on a tough off-duty look.

Think multicoloured, multi-faceted crystals; bohemian patterns with hanging beads in a riot of colours and beautiful motif drops – the bigger, brighter and bolder, the better, and the only time Pat Butcher is acceptable as a vague, how-to-wear-bold-earrings reference!

Let our top pick of statement earrings do all the talking, and all that’s left for you to do is stand back and enjoy the compliments…
