Every closet needs a secret weapon. The accessory that you can rely on to elevate any outfit. The one you can reach for to take an outfit seamlessly from day to night. Enter statement earrings. This jewelry staple is the biggest trend for summer and my most-worn accessory.


Statement earrings are everywhere you look. I can’t scroll through Instagram without seeing celebrities like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Hailey Bieber rocking gold statement earrings. ‘80s-inspired trends are some of my favorites, so when Bottega Venetta and Gucci put chunky gold earrings back on the map, I had to jump on the bandwagon.


I’m guilty of wearing statement earrings with just about any outfit – from oversized white shirts to the office to maxi dresses for days by the beach. They add just the right level of elegance to every outfit and have one of the best cost-per-wear ratios in my jewelry box. I’m sharing three types of statement earrings your wardrobe will thank you for.


Vintage Inspired Gold Statement Earrings

My Pinterest boards are full of style inspo from the ‘80s and ‘90s when chunky gold earrings reigned supreme. I love how fuss-free this style is. They’re a simple silhouette that still brings a ‘wow’ factor to any outfit.


The Bri statement earrings are a style you can throw into your clutch bag or wear to make even a messy bun look like high fashion. I always get compliments on this style because it looks authentically vintage – without the price tag.


These retro-inspired gold chunky earrings are the perfect choice if you’re a fan of the ‘quiet luxury’ or ‘glam girl’ trends. They’re minimalist and maximalist in equal measure, it’s all about how to style them.

Baroque Pearls for Wedding Season

Summer brings with it wedding season. If your social calendar is anything like mine, you have a wedding or bridal shower almost every week. Buying a new outfit for all these events can quickly become expensive, so I like to rely on jewelry to transform outfits I love.


Baroque pearls are a timeless classic that always makes you feel like the main character of an event. The Baroque Pearl earrings tick all the boxes as the charms are removable, meaning you can wear them multiple ways.


If you’re traveling this summer, these earrings are the only style you need to pack. I prefer to wear them as classic gold hoops during the day, then slide on the baroque pearl charm to change them into statement earrings for events or date night.

Chunky Gold Hoops

Summer is when capsule closets shine. When the temperatures start to rise, you want to rely on simple outfits that will keep you cool, while still looking chic. Chunky gold hoops are one of my favorite types of statement earrings with their clean silhouette and modern feel. These gold statement earrings are the ones I reach for day-to-day and constantly have in my rotation. They elevate an outfit without distracting from it or looking too formal for casual outfits like a matching co-ord set.


The easiest way to upgrade your summer closet is by adding statement earrings. These three styles will cover all your bases, from wedding guest looks to your vacation fashion.
