The weather gets warmer, the nights get longer and accessories get bolder. This summer we’re wholeheartedly embracing the statement earring trend. From now until the final days of September, we’ll be decorating our lobes with the most colourful, oversized and playful earrings we can get our hands on.
Tassels and hoops are two particular favourites, and what would a summer jewellery edit be without a splash of ocean-hued turquoise? Check out 10 of our favourite statement earrings to rock this summer.
