Dangling earrings have been the statement bauble of choice for a while now. Blame it on the advent of off-the-shoulder mania. Along with those skin-baring tops and dresses came the need to fill the space between — and what better way than with a pair of swingy jewels? From florals to ball drops, ultra long shoulder duster earrings are the perfect counterpoint to face masks.
The Fall 2020 runways were full of ornate, lengthy earrings. Chloe offered sculptural sets, while Etro gave us Western-inspired clip on options. Sure, statement-making earrings are hardly new, but brands are going to great lengths, literally, to get your attention. Everyone from Mango to Zara has shoulder duster offerings that fill the void between your ears and your clavicle — or just about. The best part is they work just as well with a sleek turtleneck as they do with more revealing items so you need only slip on a pair for an instant outfit-making effect. Yes, please.
