When it comes to party prep, accessories are the finishing touch to a look. For me, that finishing touch (sometimes, my starting point) comes from earrings. Necklaces are wonderful (especially this one) and I definitely enjoy a good stack of bangles, but it’s the earrings that fill my jewelry box. I simply can’t resist a good pair of statement earrings, and last month’s blur of holiday parties only reminded just how much I rely on them to make my look party-ready. On those occasions when I just want to go head-to-toe black (this + these), a pair of earrings is the first thing I reach for to add that much-needed festive touch. I’m not talking small and dainty studs here. I’m all about the more-is-more philosophy when it comes to party earrings. This feather pair from Tory Burch is a perfect example. What’s more festive than feathers? Plus, the jewel-tone hues add a fun touch and make them surprisingly versatile, too. I’ve worn them with everything from navy to fuchsia (this top) – and, of course, plenty of black, too.
I have more than a few favorite pairs. To start, my love for Les Bonbons (have you seen the new long and skinnies? So good! I’m also obsessed with this short pink pair.) is no secret. I also really adore my pair of Oscar de la Renta tassels. Of course, one quick internet search is all it takes to add a few new favorites to my wish list. At this moment, I’m eyeing these, these, these, these, and anything and everything from Mercedes Salazar. I also found some great under-$100 options, including these (so good!), these and these. The addiction is real, folks.
