08 Feb 2018

Expert styling tips on how to choose the right statement earring, plus a few of my faves you can pick up in stores now at Shore City!

Statement earrings are the new black!

Well, if you want an affordable, easy, quick way to update your style they are anyway!

This is quite a strong jewellery trend we're seeing hit the stores, and they are such a fun way to instantly update your everyday wardrobe. And they go with ABSOLUTELY everything! What more could you ask for in a trend.

As many of you know, I'm always a huge fan of trends that you can wear no matter what your shape, age or size - and this is one of these!

Pick colours, and styles to suit YOU and have a bit of fun with your accessories.

And to help you do just that, I've got a few expert styling tips on how to choose the right statement earring, plus a few of my faves you can pick up in stores now at Shore City!

So here you go;

1. Start Small

There are plenty of shapes and sizes to choose from so if this is a trend you are unsure of, start small. 

Once you gain confidence in this trend, you can start to upgrade the size of you earrings! Try to push yourself a little bit out of your comfort zone, but still stay true to your style.

2. Camouflage or Contrast

Again, if you're unsure, start with a colour the camouflages into your hair a little, making it a more subtle nod to the statement trend.

So for example, if you are a brunette, start with a navy or black statement earring that will just blend into your hair a little, then as your confidence in the trend grows, start wearing brighter colours like pinks and greens that contrast against your hair more!

If you have lighter hair, blush tones or pale greys can be your starting point, then graduate to stronger colours like bright blue and red!

3. Trust Your Instincts

Jewellery is such a personal thing, that the best way to pick the things you will wear the most is to just go with your gut!

If you love a colour, or a style, chances are you'll be more likely to wear it. Jewellery is such a cool and affordable way to change an outfit, so if something catches your eye, just go for it!

4. Don't Overload

It's all in the name - STATEMENT. Don't overload your look by pairing your cool new statement earrings with a bold necklace, AND a fussy neckline, AND a bright coloured bag, it can all be a bit much!

Make the statement with one piece of jewellery - and in this case, make it the earrings.


SO here are some of my top picks from the fabulous Shore City stores right now
