Some people are loving tiny accessories, but I’m still obsessing over OTT earrings.  

Think anything statement-making: large gold hoops, coloured tassels, flat metal ovals, and even abstract acrylic shapes.

Adding a pair of big earrings to your look is the easiest way to step up your style game in an instant, plus it's good distraction if you weren't able to perfect your winged eyeliner (we all have those days).

There's no right or wrong with this trend, but if you need a little inspo to get you rolling, here are 6 ways to style the look.

With... an office shirt

Add some character to your crisp, collared shirt with over-the-top fringed earrings. Clash more formal stripes with fun textures like feathers and tribal-inspired shapes, like @bambilegit does.

With... a basic tee

Add thick gold hoop earrings and layers of choker-style necklaces to a simple t-shirt and jeans to turn it into an outfit. Team it with an emerald metallic eyeshadow like @selenagomez. This is perfect for a gig or concert.

With... a silk shirt

Statement red earrings make a silk shirt much less stuffy and formal. This looks great for work, meetings or lunch with friends. Add a pop of red with lipstick like @nikkikphillips.

With… a fluffy jumper

Gem-filled earrings are the perfect addition to a fluffy pink knit and checked pants. It’ll elevate your look from ‘blah’ to boss, like @carissawalford. Perfect for the office, teamed with either pointy-toed heels or brogues.

With… a black dress

I’m loving oversized earrings with casual outfits, but of course they’re still epic for nights out, too. Of course, @zoeisabellakravitz kills it in this silky, black number with huge sparkly hoops. It just shows that a strong set of earrings can make even the simplest outfit look major.

With… your sweats

Giant gold hoops still look cool when it’s the morning after the night before. Leave your earrings in and head out for hangover food wearing your hoodie, comfy socks and sneakers like @zoeydeutch.
