Neck party, arm candy, where to next? Everyone’s rocked a chunky necklace at least once in their life or have stacked bracelets up to their elbows, but what about earrings? Statement earrings are so popular right now and available at literally every store. But how do you pull off statement earrings without going too overboard?

The picture above perfectly displays how to rock a pair of statement earrings and a fun necklace without overdoing it. The simplicity of both pieces works together in an elegant and classic way, and the striped shirt is the piece that ties it all together.

With statement earrings, it’s all about balance and color. It’s important that you don’t clash bright colors with one another or have too much going on. Earrings that are too large may look funky paired with a turtleneck, while sometimes small studs and tube tops leave your neck and chest looking bare.

As pictured above, Monkee’s store knows how to rock statement earrings. The white tassel looks lovely when paired with this pink jumpsuit, and matches the black and white accented clutch perfectly. The tassel earrings draw attention up to your face; whereas, a necklace with this jumpsuit may attract eyes to your chest, creating a more riskay appearance.

The best part about these is how many styles there are. If you’re someone with sensitive ears, then you’re in luck because lightweight earrings are just as easy to find. In addition, there are so many different colors and styles that if you want to wear fun earrings, you’ll without a doubt be able to find a pair that works.

So go ahead and give it a try! Next time you’re going to settle for studs or a chunky necklace, switch it UP and try out some fun earrings instead.
