Confirmed: THIS Will Be Spring's Biggest Jewelry Trend

By Sophie Yorke

We all know accessories make the outfit, and never has it been more true of spring/summer’s major jewelry trend. Taking the place of the dainty minimalist jewelry we all fell in love with in 2016, spring’s larger-than-life statement earrings ensure you’ll never look boring no matter what you’re wearing.

Quick to throw on and easy to add some drama to your basics, SS17’s oversized earrings are everything an instant upgrade should be. Not that you need more convincing, but New York Fashion Week saw Proenza Schouler, Maison Margiela and Tibi send models down the runway with some serious (and hefty) earrings. We’re talking massive doorknockers.

What’s not to love? Answer: nothing. But before you pull out the jeweled chandeliers of past seasons, remember it’s less about dangly antiques and more about solid sculpted works of art. And it’s not just about how they look but how you wear them, so go solo for added impact or tone them down with a mash-up of signature studs. If you’ve ever shied away from bold jewelry, let our edit inspire some earring adventurism within you.
