More than decorative accessories, the right earring elevates an outfit and flatters the face. From hoops to chandelier and mismatched pearl earrings, it seems like things are about to get busy in the jewellery department.
While the hoop earring has been lingering around the fashion runways for a while now, this season’s hoops were elevated with contrasting materials, textures, colours and attachments. Here, multi-coloured beads, crystal diamantes and feathers set on a gold-toned hoop earring (approximately S$985 for a pair) by Chloé.
These black leather hoop earring with contrast white stitching (approximately S$503 for a pair) by Loewe will be a flattering statement piece for those with sharp and angular face shapes and jawlines.
However, for those looking to slim the face, a single hoop earring with long, dangling charms (approximately S$256 for a single earring) by Acne Studios will lengthen the face and extend the neckline.
A pared-back pair of silver-toned, black marbled and gold-toned hoops (approximately S$616 for a pair) by Balenciaga.
The sinuous lines on Loewe’s gold-toned brass Nail Hoop earrings (approximately S$771 for a pair) slims and lengthens the face and neckline.
While the diamante earring has been around the fashion runways for a few seasons now, it is now making a comeback with decadent iterations. Here, a pair of chandelier crystal earrings (approximately S$1,460 for a pair) for the bold and independent woman who wants to leave a mark.
When it comes to formal occasions such as events, dinners, and galas, a sparkly yet graceful pair of earrings, like these open-hoop crystal earrings (approximately S$582 for a pair) by Oscar de la Renta, brings the heaviest of gowns and fabrics to life.
An easy and universally-flattering option for most face types will be this pair of cuff-like chandelier earrings (approximately S$742 for a pair) by Isabel Marant.
For the feminine and sweet one, a pair of crystal-embellished heart hoop earrings (approximately S$949 for a pair) by Saint Laurent will do the trick.
A pair of star earrings with crystal tassels (approximately S$524 for a pair) by Miu Miu for a girl’s night out. What’s more, it’s a clip-on pair so you’ll never have to fumble with your earrings at 3 AM again.
Another strong trend of this season is the asymmetrical pearl earring — paired with gold and seashells. Here, a single dangling earring of shell, pearls, and crystals (approximately S$1,115 for a single earring) by Alexander McQueen.
When it comes to these oblong pearls, asymmetry is key. They either come in single or mismatched earrings — like these simple, geometric mismatched earrings with ruffled gold panels and an oblong pearl (approximately S$614) by Roksanda.
Chloé’s iteration of the asymmetrical pearl earring trend (approximately S$519 for a pair) is a light option for everyday wear.
Here, the French jewellery brand, Timeless Pearly’s mismatched freshwater pearl and natural seashell earrings (approximately S$276 for a pair).
