How To Style Statement Stud Earrings

They say you are never fully dressed without a smile. But, a pair of statement earrings should be added to that list as well. An impact-making accessory and one which is of the highest variety, a pair statement stud earrings isn’t for the faint-hearted.

Wearing statement earrings dates back thousands of years, so it is well-known that a pair of statement earrings will transform even the simplest of outfits. Whether you want to give a white shirt an upgrade for work or wear with an evening gown, there’s no occasion where a pair of statement studs won’t fit in.

Whilst there is a pair of earrings for each and every mood, it isn’t a one-size-fits-all scenario. From geometric and sculptural designs to embellished jewels, there are plenty of options available, so here are some ways of how to style your statement stud earrings.

Everyday Workwear

All work-wear wardrobes consist of a plain shirt or two and a statement earring is almost like the cherry on top of a cupcake. You want to make your statement stud earrings the star of your outfit, so it is important that you create a clean canvas with your blouse or shirt for a balance. Statement earrings speak for themselves, so a top with no embellishments or patterns mean that your earrings don’t need to compete for attention.

Bold Lip Colours

If your statement stud earrings a slightly more subtle, then go bold with your makeup. A strong red or berry lip will help to support the statement made by your earrings, whilst also suiting your whole look - a nude lip just wouldn’t do your earrings justice! For your eye makeup, try a retro-style cat eye, which is a look that is both bold and refined and perfect for a classy look. For this look, our rhinestone geometric earrings would be the perfect addition to a bold makeup style.

Avoid Other Statement Pieces

When wearing any piece of statement jewellery, try not to add any other pieces to your outfit. You’re more than likely going to be tempted to match your statement stud earrings with a bold necklace choice, but steer clear of wearing too many jewels. Try to avoid statement necklaces altogether, as you want the focus to be on your earrings.

...But Don’t Be Afraid Of Simple Jewellery

Whilst it’s better to stay away from one too many competing statement pieces, don’t be afraid of adding in more delicate and simple pieces of jewellery to support your look. For example, delicate bracelets, rings and thin chains all look beautiful when paired with a pair of statement stud earrings. If your earrings have silver or gold in them, then choose pieces made from the same metal.
