The Statement Earrings That Will Transform Any Outfit

They're mandatory for video calls.

Five months into the ‘new normal’ (no, we've still no idea what that means either) and we're still conducting a lot of our lives over video calls. For your wardrobe, this means one of two things. Either your earring collection is front and centre on your dressing table, getting used daily to add a dash of much-needed, sorely-missed glamour to all your outfits - or you’ve got some serious catching up to do.

Daisy Edgar-Jones and Jodie Comer have both cultivated fine earringdrobes, wearing Completedworks’s Scrunch and Flow styles (for occasions like the BAFTA TV Awards, no less) on repeat since lockdown started. Beyoncé'sBlack Is King, which dropped on Disney+ last month, has 101 examples of the look-twice power of earrings. Statement earrings are one accessory that lockdown hasn’t killed.

Handbags were rendered almost redundant for months - roomy totes were the only thing that could squeeze the entire weekly shop - and heels were stuffed under the bed in favour of sheepskin slippers. Earrings, on the other hand, are what waist-up dressing is all about. They’re eye-catching enough to make an outfit seem polished, and with trends falling out of fashion, are a much more solid investment than clothes.

As well as Completedworks, the fashion editor favourites are Simone Rocha (for her crystal flower earrings that drip towards the shoulder), Sandalexandra (for her playful grocery collection that includes chillis, corn sheaves and watermelons) and Maria Black (for her sculptural, pearl-embellished styles). They’ll dust all your outfits with a little bit of dazzle.
