Ear-bling

September 14, 2009


Before we even get started with New York Fashion Week, let’s take a quick look at one of the trends emerging from two of the events from this past weekend–the Creative Arts Emmys and the MTV VMAs. In addition to donning sparkly strapless minidresses, Selema Gomez, Pink and Kristin Cavallari all chose oversized sparkly earrings for the red carpet. These are not the hugely popular chandeliers of the past few years, but graphic geometric shapes studded with faceted diamonds and gemstones.

I’m really liking this evolution in earrings. While bold necklaces and cuffs were really getting all of the press last season, turning some attention back to the ears is fun and fresh. I am particularly liking the large, circular drops that feel just a bit mod. Want to shop something similar? Check out these finds at a few different prices and looks:
