If you’re looking for one accessory to make a statement this fall, take a cue from the recent runway shows and choose earrings that dust your shoulders.
Last week, models at Delpozo walked down the runway wearing massive earrings made of colored sequins. With hair pulled back into tight buns, the accessories took precedence over everything else and conveyed major fairy-tale vibes. It’s easy to see why the brand’s designer, Josep Font, added the earrings to his collection—he credits artist Soo Sunny Park, who creates vivid hanging sculptures out of iridescent plexiglass, as one of his inspirations.

Similarly, Proenza Schouler’s models wore architectural earrings that brushed their shoulders. To emphasize the oversize baubles, the women were styled with minimal makeup—save for a touch of M.A.C. Chromacake pigment in yellow or bright white applied on the ears. Even classic designer Michael Kors styled a few models, including Kendall Jenner, with enormous flower earrings.
Fashion has been obsessed with all things ’90s for the past few seasons, but with this trend, it seems like things could be changing. “It” girls from the ’60s favored the look of enormous, shoulder-dusting earrings. Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick were frequently photographed wearing the look.
The trend has continued at London fashion week, too, with J. W. Anderson and Topshop Unique. Some of the models at J. W. Anderson’s runway show wore long, dangly, mismatched earrings that went far beyond the shoulder, while simple silver versions with pops of color were shown at Topshop Unique.
