15 Statement Earrings For Spring

by Grace Bonney

These days it’s hard to get me to invest in anything clothing-wise. I tend to kick around in the same jeans and old sweatshirts (usually pinched from Julia’s closet) because they’re comfy and they let me work without feeling constricted. But the one thing that does catch my eye is a good pair of statement earrings. I have always been a fan of collecting small, shiny things (old, new, and everything in between) that make me happy and for some reason, earrings have always been my happiest place. Maybe it’s because they’re not connected to how I’m feeling about my body at any given time — they always fit and they always make me feel confident and uplifted.

So today I’m sharing 15 of my favorites for spring. I’m thinking about getting one of these pairs to spruce up my warm-weather wardrobe this year (whichever pair goes best with shorts and flip flops), so I’d love to know if you have a favorite pair that I’m missing here (or a favorite designer that does this category well). Who should I be checking out for great jewelry this spring? xo, Grace
