Do you want to make a dramatic fashion statement but can’t pull off a dramatic looking outfit? Try a slightly subtle approach by wearing an enormous pair of earrings seen on Spring 2009 runways. Designers put an unexpected amount of effort into accessories this year concentrating on creative designs for over the top earrings. Large hoops, shoulder dusters, chains and resin were all used to creative a vision coherent with their collections.
Chains, coins and crescent moons were looped and wrapped into moody dreams at Zac Posen’s show.
Louis Vuitton twirled metal into unique hoops and twisted leather straps to create a matte and shine effect on an oversized earpiece.
Stella McCartney was soft and pretty with a neutral color, resin hoop that brisked the models exposed shoulders.
Marni was heavy duty in shells and ribbon in a soft neutral color palette and matching choker necklace.
Always eager to show off new looks, celebrities have been seen wearing some of these oversized beauties both out on their daily errands and at the awards shows.
Jennifer Lopez sported a pair of oversized gold hoops at a recent event.
Debra Messing debuted a pair of diamond beauties on the red carpet.
And Hilary Duff looked lovely in lace with a pair of doily looking, black earrings.
With so many styles and colors to choose from, you can’t go wrong. Just remember for Spring 2009.. bigger is better.
