It's pretty safe to say that the holidays are the perfect occasion to dress up. Of course, your outfit and makeup are super important, but so are your accessories — particularly a super fly pair of statement earrings. A good pair of statement earrings can make a girl feel extra fancy and pull an entire look together the way most regular studs just aren't equipped to. May they be dangly, chandelier-shaped, or just flat out huge — these accessories are seemingly one of a kind, and highly desired by fashionistas everywhere.
If the style element doesn't convince you, statement earrings also come in handy as a quick ice breaker, or awkwardness if you get forced to converse with a group of partygoers that you don't know too well. After all, 'tis the season for a holiday party, right? Why not look effortlessly bomb while clinking your champagne glass with the person next to you, and start the next year off in style?
This guide to virtually every style and aesthetic of statement earrings has totally got you covered. Get you hands on a pair and make your way through the holiday season with a bit of panache.
