I’ve recently developed a statement earring shopping habit—one I fully intended to curb this summer. That is, until I saw this summer’s statement earrings selection. Once I discovered how many truly incredible, fun earrings were on offer, I realized there was absolutely no hope of me kicking my obsession. This is the summer statement earring‘s world now, and I’m simply living in it.
I’ve always been a fan of a kitschy statement piece. Growing up, I consistently found myself drawn more to the dusty bins of vintage shops than anywhere else (except maybe my mother’s closet, which I raided with some regularity). Now that I’m older, my wardrobe has grown increasingly settled; I’ve filled style holes as they’ve arisen, and I’ve left myself with a closet that feels full, varied, complete—and perhaps more importantly, fun. I have plenty, and I constantly find myself dreaming up new ways to combine the pieces I already own. In other words, I’m basically living the sartorial life I dreamt of every time I unearthed a vintage treasure as a child.
But in my quest to nail my day-to-day wardrobe, I largely neglected my accessory rotation—which is now on the receiving end of all the energy I used to funnel into clothing. My bag and shoe situation is pretty practical and pared-down (I don’t care how cute something is—if it can’t hold my shit or comfortably transport me from place to place, I’m not here for it). But jewelry—jewelry is where I can play. Statement-making clothes are only further elevated by statement-making accessories, which is why statements earrings are, definitively, my shit. (As if that didn’t become obvious the moment you noticed this shopping guide had 103 items in it.)
Now that camp is the new black, designers and fast-fashion retailers alike have blessed the zeitgeist with all kinds of vibrant, fun, exciting earrings. Hoops are now adorned with patterned beads, covered in colorful shells or rendered in strange shapes. Drop earrings have grown chunkier, duster earrings longer and tasseled earrings, well, more tasseled. Fruit motifs are abundant—and tropical baubles are, too.
The summer statement earring landscape is vast and varied—and ready to be shopped by anyone with an affinity for fun doodads. (Suffice it to say my statement earring infatuation is here to stay for a few months more. Maybe I’ll reconsider kicking it in autumn?)
