I have recently developed an obsession with statement earrings. The more over the top, the better. For me, earrings have always symbolised luxury. Whether it be a dainty, gold stud, or a statement earring worthy of Pat Butcher, I always priortise quality and design. Earrings contribute more to our aesthetic than any other accessory: they draw attention to our face and frame our features. In the same way that we take care over how we do our make-up, choosing the right earrings can make your eyes pop, accentuate your hair, or at the very least, add a whole load of SASS to your look.
So when Victoria Emerson (an UH-MAZING jewellery brand) got in contact, I jumped at the chance of working with them. Specialising in the oh-so-special, their designs are extravagant, luxe and just about as statement as it gets. Their earring collection is a mix of bold blues, turquoises and baby pinks that contrast with the bold, chunky designs, giving them a soft femininity.
When I saw this pair, I knew they were for me. The colour palette is slightly darker and bolder, which is definitely reflective of my style. Before I had even hit ‘checkout’ I had styled them in my head. The show stopping design is not for the faint of heart, but for the girl who wants to stand out from the crowd, these earrings are for you.
An earring of this calibre need not be worn with a fussy outfit. I decided the perfect back drop for these babies would be a few trusty favourites. Of course the outfit includes the most over-worn item in my wardrobe (sorry, not sorry), these Zara cropped, wide-leg trousers. Sometimes in life you find the clothing version of yourself; these trousers are exactly that. I never feel more like myself than when I am in these trousers, so hopefully you can forgive the fact that they feature far too often! I chose to also pair them with an oversized, cream Mango knit, and a pinstripe duster coat. To mirror the sass up top (thanks to the earrings), I chose to wear my beloved Primark snake print boots.
