Whether you go big and bold or slightly more refined, statement earrings quickly add the perfect level of polish to an otherwise off-duty outfit.
It’s therefore unsurprising that they’ve well and truly become the accessory trend of the moment – to the point where luxury department store Liberty has seen a 30% rise in the sale of earrings.
Ruby Chadwick, Fashion Accessories buyer for the store, explains: ‘This trend continues to reign strong in any size and fits all. The easiest and most playful way to nod to any of the season’s trends, whether it be glitz or citrus.’
Here’s our pick of the bunch, with something for every price point.
