Statement earrings: you have my attention. It's no secret that I love a good statement necklace. I almost always have my hair down so earrings can be hard to see, I don't like when they are too heavy and tug on your earlobes, and I'm less sure about how to wear them. I gave into my craving and ordered a couple pairs recently though, and so far they are much easier to pull off (and not nearly as uncomfortable) as I imagined. A colorful blazer was the perfect match for this pair, and I rounded up a more under $50 below that would work equally well with a blazer and jeans/dress pants combo. Which do you prefer: statement necklace or statement earrings?
