Autumn/Winter Trend Report: Statement Earrings

The statement earrings we're obsessing over

The cooler weather is settling in fast, which means big changes for our wardrobes are due. This applies not only to our clothes and shoes, but to how we accessorise with our jewellery.

During the autumn/winter seasons, statement earrings take on a whole new look. While summer is all about vibrant colours and big tassels, the cooler seasons call for more refined jewellery pieces, like hoop earrings or stud earrings. Stepping out into the cold often means stacking on layer after layer; jumpers, coats, scarves, hats - you get it. The last thing you want is to get your big statement earrings caught up in all that.

Fortunately, this year has made way for some exciting new earring trends that will complement any winter look perfectly. We may be wearing darker colours and multiple layers, but that doesn’t mean we should underestimate the power of some colossal jewellery pieces.

Abstract Hoops

Gold hoops have always been a go-to (and ultimate statement earring). However this season, fashion is giving a new look to the simple hoop. Whether it be angular, square or twisted, the irregular circle is the perfect statement for this cool season. 

Pair your abstract hoop earrings with a black turtleneck for an effortless avant-garde inspired look. We love the simplicity of this combination, and the hoops will give a simple Winter look a touch of high-fashion sophistication that can easily take you from day to night.

Cosmic Love

The celestial jewellery trend is one that comes and goes in the fashion world, however this season it’s well and truly back. The stars have aligned and you can expect to see some cosmic love on the jewellery scene over the Autumn/Winter months.

These shiny silver earrings are perfect for adding a little extra sparkle to your night out. Being more on the elaborate side, these starry pieces will work perfectly with your LBD at a formal event. Complete with a cozy faux-fur coat for the ultimate Hollywood look with an extraterrestrial twist.

Unsubtle Sparkles

Tying in with the celestial trend, it is evident that making a statement is all about the sparkle this season. Overly encrusted jewels and obvious bling make for the ultimate statement earring. We have always been a fan of big jewels so it’s safe to say we’re excited to sport these classic statement pieces.

Being the home of the 1 carat, we have a large variety of earrings that own the unsubtle sparkle trend. For those who aren’t a huge fan of big statement earrings, a pair of bejewelled stud earrings will have the same impact. Sparkly studs are great for dressing up your everyday Winter look, and definitely won’t get in the way of your coat and scarf.

Mismatched Jewels

The fashion world is getting more daring by the day with another interesting take on unique statement earrings. Mismatched earrings are a modern take on statement jewellery that is being seen all over the runway in 2019. It’s edgy, playful and allows you the freedom to experiment. Play with earrings you already own or find new pairs that you can mix and match how you wish.

The mismatched jewels trend is a great way to bring a pop of colour into your look this Winter. Depending on the type of earrings you’re mismatching, this trend may work better with simpler outfits, keeping the attention on the statement earrings.

However, opting for a mismatched pair of bold precious stone studs can work perfectly with any pattern or colour in your look. Emerald earrings, ruby earrings, sapphire earrings, they don’t even need to be the same shape - simply switch out the matching stud of one pair for the half of another and you’ve effortlessly tapped into the mismatched earrings trend.
