We’ve been so busy admiring Susanna Reid’s high-street hits, that we almost missed her Good Morning Britain colleague, Kate Garraway, flashing some seriously good earrings. (Who’d have thought the GMB sofa would become such a source of style inspiration?)
Looking much more expensive than their £12.99 price tag, Kate wore the beaded earrings to Capital’s Summer Time Ball at London’s Wembley Stadium.
And it’s trusty old Zara that has come up with the goods again. The shoulder-brushing fringe ear-rings are still available to buy online. With metallic bronze, burnt orange and gold beading, they will look equally great on blondes, brunettes and redheads.
A pair of statement earrings is an easy style shortcut, particularly if you want to transform an old dress into a wedding-guest worthy outfit. Go big and go swishy (but be careful, you really don’t want to get them caught in anything). Wear your hair down like Kate, or for a really dramatic look a top-knot will show off your earrings in all their glory.
Zara’s statement earring game has been pretty impressive this summer. If you want to try out something fun and flashy without dropping loads on ‘real’ jewellery, especially if you’ll be swishing your earrings on the beach, Zara has myriads to choose from. Expensive gems aren’t the point of this trend – it’s all about extravagant, eye-catching designs in cheap and cheerful materials.
Here are some of our favourite pairs from Zara – and just like Kate’s pair they’re all £12.99. Remember, the bigger, the bolder, the better.
