A Worthy Investment: Statement Earrings post image

A Worthy Investment: Statement Earrings

I finally got around to seeing the Edie Sedgwick biopic Factory Girl this past weekend and as expected, I was totally inspired by the amazing fashion (in the midst of being really saddened by her doomed life, of course). The film totally re-acquainted with the utter fabulousness of statement earrings- one of Edie’s signature style staples- an accessory I had shelved for quite some time in favor of statement necklaces and bracelets.

Oversized earrings are such an easy way to glam up your look, not to mention, enhance your natural beauty. Statement earrings also bring the focus to the face and are perfect for days when you’re feeling a bit insecure about your bod.

Oversized earrings were also major players on the Spring runways, from old Hollywood glamour styles at Tracy Reese, to artsy styles at Marni, to tribal inspired at Louis Vuitton, to the show-stopping chunky coin styles at Zac Posen (designed by Erickson Beamon).

After watching the movie, I decided to whip out my earring collection and am now all about the statement earrings, they honestly elevate any look to new heights! With this season’s heavy emphasis on accessories, feel free to wear them with some of your other favorite pieces, just make sure you maintain some sort of a balance and always stay true to your personal style. You can use your earrings t complement a look or create one, like Edie who used massive-sized earrings to glam up even the most basic ensembles, like her signature leotard, tights, and sweater combos. There really is no way to get it wrong.

Check out some of my favorite statement making earrings after the jump!

Erickson Beamon Coin Earrings, $342 (as seen at the Zac Posen SS ’09 show). These earrings really upped the fabulous-ness of Zac Posen’s spectacular Spring ’09 collection.

I loved Factory Girl for the same reasons. Statement earrings are great to wear in the winter, too, because they are always visible! I love your selection!
