Statement jewellery is back in fashion. The SS15 runways proved the power pull of oversized earrings, as celebrities and stree-stylers alike jumped on the accessories bandwagon to follow the status quo.

On the Streets
Whilst the SS15 collections may have bucked the trend for statement earrings, the street style mavericks this season flocked from New York to Paris clad in all manner of bejewelled contraptions.
On the Runway
Whether sprinkled with diamonds in chandelier formations, or conjured in artistic enamel, the statement earring took full force on the SS15 runways. Leading the way was Nicolas Ghesquière’s futuristic versions for Louis Vuitton shaped from clear, oval perspex and enamel. Marni‘s familiar abstract approach transported the simple earring in graphic, blossom-like shapes. Maintaining a classic approach was the Oscar de la Renta‘s Upper East Side beauty, dressed in crystallised chandelier versions.
On Our Agenda
Buy into the trend with our statement earring edit, it’s all about proportion. We love Dsquared2‘s gemstone and enamel four-tiered versions. Or what about Dior‘s popular Mise en Dior ear studs? They’ve arrived updated from last season in interesting marble colour ways. We also recommend Oscar de la Renta‘s beaded ear baubles, perfectly primed for spring in the prettiest shade of pink.
