I’ve always LOVED big, statement earrings.
All of a sudden I was very fashun and I had to recommend tassel earrings to everyone I saw: “Guys – they’re great. They’re just like the tassels on your mum’s old curtains, but they’re for your ears.”
My new tassel earrings had everything I wanted – they’re big, but light, they’re this really nice burgundy colour, and they made my simple outfits pop.
Soon, I was seeing tassel earrings everywhere and I realised my little earrings were part of something much bigger: FASHUN. CULTURE. STYLE.
And just like in that scene from The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestly explains to Andy Sachs how her cheap blue sweater originated, I realised my little Sportsgirl earrings got their start on the runways of Chanel and Gucci.
Now they're on my ears for the tidy little sum of $16.95.
Statement earrings are great for days when you want to look like you've put a lot of effort in, but are too lazy to do so.
A pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt look amazing when you pop on a big ole' pair of earrings.
To help you get on board the tassel bus (toot toot), I've rounded up some of the best from Australian retailers.
