Yes, it's true. There are statement earrings designed to be worn for certain times and seasons, but what if you wanted to break the rules a bit and wear them during an off-season? First, let's identify what qualifies as statement jewelry. Statement jewelry is considered to be any unique and bold piece that helps the wearer express themselves through their outward appearance. These pieces can include, but aren't limited to earrings, necklaces and rings just to name a few.
Due to the larger size of statement jewelry, many shy away from their boldness. However, picking a statement piece is easy, start with your favorites. Your favorite color, silhouette, size, material and embellishments. The key to pulling off statement jewelry is quite simple. You must fully commit to the look. This type of jewelry is best worn with solid colors because of its intricacy and all-over beauty. You want to avoid outshining your statements with bold prints and patterns or competitive pieces. Think, less is more.
Now that you've fully embraced your inner boldness and conquered the fear of wearing statement jewelry. Let's take it a step further and solely focus on earrings. Statement earrings can be worn all year round. The tip to never appearing out-of-season is to go for a pair that comes in a color and is made with a material that is versatile. Colors such as red, green, brown, orange, yellow and even blue work most seamlessly across all four seasons. As for materials, we recommend selecting statement earrings that are made with both durable and sustainable materials such as cruelty-free feathers, repurposed leathers and recycled wovens. Avoid earrings made with straw, raffia and knits as these materials are too season specific. Similarly for embellishments, think classic shapes like circles, squares, triangles or rectangles. Avoid embellishments that are tied to one season like pumpkins or seashells. Save the more playful pairs of statements for its proper season to wear or a special occasion.
