Add Fun to Your Outfit With a Statement Earring

With my kids out of the inquisitive baby and toddler years, I have grown a collection of statement earrings. I used to be wary of wearing long earrings when my kids were little. I often resorted to wearing studs or no earrings at all during those early child rearing years, in fear of little hands ripping earrings from my earlobes. 

But now that they are in primary school years, I’ve acquired a few pairs of statement earrings to wear on rotation throughout my week.

It’s a simple way to add fun to your outfit and they are often an affordable accessory when budgets are tight and you want something new to wear. 

I have a variety of textures, colours, patterns and lengths to suit an array of outfits. 

Statement Earrings

My favourite places to buy statement earrings are from local businesses – where the earrings have been handmade. With lockdowns and cancellation of markets, many of these small businesses haven’t been able to display their new creations. 

If you’re looking for a gorgeous gift for a friend or an affordable update for spring, check out these statement earrings from local, Australian businesses. 

Tips on choosing Statement Earrings

I have a few tips when choosing a statement earring. 

  • Go bright or light when you have long dark hair – this is because the earrings will stand out against your hair. Black earrings can’t be seen on my ears when I have long dark hair. There needs to be more contrast.
  •  Consider the weight of your earring. Some clay earrings can be quite heavy on the ears.
  •  Tassel earrings can be trimmed to suit. If you’re not a fan of a tassel draping down your shoulders, trim the tassel to suit.
  •  Have a storage area to keep earring pairs together and avoid tassels getting knotted.
  • Can be a budget friendly gift for someone who is hard to buy for or has all the things.

Statement Earring Storage

I have two ways to store my statement earrings. I purchased a jewellery hanger from Target a few years ago where I can hang my hooked statement earrings. You can see it in the background of this photo.

For my stud statement earrings, I use a Bon Maxi Earring Holder.

Do you have an addiction to statement earrings? Where have you purchased your favourite dangles from?

    I like that you mention having a variety of textures, colours, and styles so you have something to wear any outfit. I’d imagine that it would also be a good idea to have at least a few neutral earrings, such as silver hoops or a diamond stud. This way, you can have something that will blend in with any outfit.
