Earrings That are Bold and Beautiful

Now hear this: Shoulder-grazing earrings are making a serious statement

Bright, colorful, embellished, geometric or shiny (or sometimes all of the above), summer’s trendiest accessory just may be the statement earring. It’s time to store the tiny studs for later: Giant, shoulder-grazing jewelry is the perfect (and oh, so easy) way to amp up a simple LBD, white T-shirt or other minimal ensemble. And whether you invest in a designer look or opt for the costume variety, adding a dose of oversized dazzle is always in style. So, listen up, because this season, it’s all about the ears.
