I love statement earrings because, well, they make a statement! Earrings with tassels, beads, and maybe even some bling are the perfect accessories for your summer wardrobe. I love sporting all white and adding a fun, pop of color with some dangle earrings or going for an updated take on a monochromatic look and finding stand-outs earrings that coordinate with all of the bright, colorful clothing that I have in my closet.
While I admit that I used to spend way too much money on costume jewelry (J.Crew, I still adore you, but your fabulous earrings have made me poorer!), over the years, I’ve found some really fantastic statement earrings that look just as stylish and don’t break the bank.
Happy summer accessorizing!
The A-Lyst for Best Statement Earrings
These cheerful yellow earrings are the perfect accent color for my navy and white dresses, but I also love throwing them on with my complementary yellow ensembles for a chic monochromatic look! My obsession with BaubleBar runs deep (…it is actually a problem because I am running out of earring storage!) and these stunners are also on my list to purchase this summer – Amariella Flower Stud Earrings, Mariette Fringe Drop Earrings, and Mietta Drop Earrings.
This is a local Boston-area company owned by two stylish sisters and I adore their affordable, eye-catching pieces! These beaded blue earrings are the perfect combination of sparkle + color, and if you’re looking for something fun to sport on your next tropical getaway, I am swooning over these Dinero Earrings.
I love the range of prices and styles that Anthropologie offers for jewelry! You score some truly unique pieces under $100 and I guarantee that you will receive dozens of compliments no matter what you choose. Alternatively, if you want to splurge, stand-out pieces like these Corsica Drop Earrings are beautiful!
If you love BaubleBar and also love Target (I fall into this category), you will adore BaubleBar’s SUGARFIX line for Target. It’s super fun, colorful, on trend, and best yet, it is CRAZY affordable! On a recent shopping trip, I picked up these beauties in pink and turquoise because they were only $12.99!
Tried and true J.Crew will always have my back when I’m in a pinch and need a killer pair of statement earrings, but when I want to score a deal, J.Crew Factory is my go-to. I love that you can find the style and quality of J.Crew at a much better price point! On my wish list right now are the Striped and Solid Tassel Earrings and the Beaded Circle Tassel Earrings.
I went through a period of time when I was obsessed with Stella + Dot and used to have a ton of friends who were stylist consultants. While I don’t know anyone personally involved now, I will still occasionally take a look at their site and peruse the earring section. I love these beauties because of the mix of colors – you can match them to so many summer outfits!
