10 Statement Earrings for Summer

Recently, I’ve gotten into big earrings.  When I want to feel dressed up, big earrings.  When I don’t know how to finish an outfit, big earrings.  Formal occasions, casual outings, if I just need something extra, big earrings.  Here are ten pairs under-$50 to bring a burst of life to your wardrobe.

Halogen Curved Disc Earrings ($25)

Baublebar Amina Drop Earrings ($32)

8 Other Reasons Ellie Earrings ($37)

Yochi Bumble Earrings ($21)

AQUA Multicolored Teardrop Earrings ($28)

Humble Chic Geometric Threader Hoops ($24)

These come in several metals.  They were my gateway drug to big earrings because they are so light and easy to wear.

Kate Spade Slice of Stone Earrings ($48)

Baublebar Sonatina Earrings ($20)

Davette Hoop Earrings ($22)

Rebecca Minkoff Open Cut Earrings ($48)

    So many good choices here!

    I’ll add that I got the multicolored version of these a few months ago and have been incredibly happy with them:

    I recently cut my shoulder length hair into a very short pixie and have been enjoying ever larger, more daring earrings since. I think they are a more modern look than a statement necklace and perfect for retail therapy that doesn’t break the bank. I’m particularly fond of a rose gold colored leather pair from Nickel & Suede. SO big and yet weigh almost nothing.

      I still like a long pendant, but most of my chunky necklaces are out the door. Some of them are a little 2010.

    I just put myself on a spending freeze but I love SO MANY of those. I’m already imagining all of the outfits and hairstyles that would accompany the Aqua teardrops and the “geometric threader hoops.”
