I am in my mid 40’s and never sported anything other than a delicate stud earring all my life.  I had bought earrings before, but usually ended up taking them off before I went out, for fear of looking over the top.

2017 is the year of the statement earring so I cannot avoid it any longer.  I have. thanks to Hannah (check out the post if haven’t already) invested in a simple gold pair, and now I have worked my way up to two great pairs from J Crew.

I dress them down with a simple t-shirt or white shirt and jeans and if you keep the earring lightweight they are like great lipstick, they just finish your outfit.

If you are looking for which earrings to buy now and how to style them, then check out our interview with super stylist Deborah Sheridan Taylor.

I hope we have inspired you to give those statement earrings a go!  Thank you Deborah for all your help on this post.

Deborah’s top is Topshop ( bargain rail I bought 10 £1 each) and trousers Zara also on the sales rail. My jeans are MiH and the top is from NW8closet.  Next week will be sharing some of Deborah’s tips on using Ebay.

Check out H&M and Mango for some great earrings, wishing you all a fabulous weekend.
