Adorn Your Ears, Part 2: Dressier Earrings

Now that we've touched on everyday earrings, it's AB-solutely essential that we talk about dressier earrings for parties, cocktail events, dinners, and evenings out!

I'm a huge, huge, huge fan of bright, bold, and large earrings that draw attention to your face, but you need to play with balance in order to wear them. For example, if you're opting for a pair like the Tory Burch delights in the photo on the right, you'll need to forgo a necklace and keep your lipstick minimal. They're so statement making, you can't overdo the look. However if your opting for a sleek pair like the Topshop stunners in the photo on the left, you can easily pair a minimal necklace with a light lip stain.

Here are some of my fav, fav, fav pairs of statement earrings that I'm coveting right now. My best advice though? Pay with fashion ... it's hardly serious and it's the best way to express yourself!
