‘Tis the season for a festive summer wedding, filled with love and of course, a whole lot of style.
It’s wedding season. And in case the invitations on your desk and specific travel plans in your near future weren’t indication enough, perhaps the scramble to find the perfect wedding guest ensemble might be.
As much as finding the perfect look to suit each affair might be a challenge (repeating is now less of an option than ever considering social media captures and cements an outfit and ties it to an exact occasion), but the search can also be satisfying, especially if you start with the accessory of the season — the statement earring.
With the trend in off the shoulder and cold shoulder necklines, women are keeping the lines of the neck and shoulders clean by punctuating with a bold, drop earring rather than a smattering of necklaces.
With the hair pulled back to let the jewelry shine, the look is classic elegance, not to mention dresses up even a daytime number so it’s more formal and wedding-ready.
Here are some statement earring options and the pieces that pull together the entire look no matter your style or the wedding dress code.
For a daytime affair, pair gold drop earrings in a floral motif with a soft, off-the-shoulder frock and lace up sandals.
A more formal occasion calls for a chic black dress with unexpected details, plus the most vibrant punctuation – Jade.
Preppy meets pure sparkle with this striped one shoulder dress and a pair of diamond ear crawler earrings.
Don a dramatic print anchored by gold, nautical inspired earrings.
A long dress made from layers of wispy chiffon calls for a weighty gold earring to make a real statement.
Pearls and a strapless floral dress are always a classic combination.
Sometimes smaller (earrings) are better, particular when the dress is light and short.
Strong lines and a killer shoe make this look severely chic.
