Bigger is definitely better this season and our Style Panel offers up tips on how to style statement earrings for day and night. Sparkly and feminine or geometric and mismatched, anything goes as long as it’s super-sized. It’s time to get your hands on a pair of showstoppers.
Challenge #181: How do you wear the statement earring?

“I love a statement necklace or a cocktail ring, but with all the off-the-shoulder necklines and bold prints this spring, earrings seem to be the perfect match . For extra emphasis, I like to sweep my hair back to let the shoulder-dusters do all the talking.”

“Statement earrings are popping up everywhere and my favourite pair are these pink pom poms from Forever21. They add a pop of colour to any outfit and are light-weight enough to wear all day long. Since these fluffy balls make such a statement, no other accessories are required.”

“I love wearing anything super feminine, so I’ve paired my statement earrings with a printed leopard sweater and a pink midi skirt. My crystal statement studs sparkle against the soft muted palette.”
