GLOBE LOBES! How WhoaWoah Will You Go?

State­ment ear­rings are huge right now. Lit­er­ally. But how big is too big? Like ruf­fles (see p28), are they be­com­ing a teeny bit ridicu­lous? We put some of the most OTT styles to the testé

Look (UK) - - FIRST LOOK -

State­ment Mash-up

From: H&M, £17.99 Vi­tal Stats: 5.5cm x 9cm Whoa Rat­ing: Ver­dict: One word: Dan­ger­ous. They are just too heavy and i had to take them out af­ter only an hour. not ideal, es­pe­cially when they look this spec­tac­u­lar. How­ever for spe­cial (and some­what short) oc­ca­sions, i’ll give them an­other go.

80s Disco Hoops

From: Ac­ces­sorize, £15 Vi­tal Stats: 3cm x 8cm Whoa Rat­ing: Ver­dict: On pa­per, these should be the most wear­able of the lot. Al­though weight wasn’t an is­sue, they did get caught in my hair. Take note: only wear with an up-do.

Vin­tage Volt­age

From: Monki, £8 Vi­tal Stats: 4cm x 10cm Whoa Rat­ing: Ver­dict: if you’re not per­turbed by jin­gling (loudly) all day, then these are for you. You’ll be heard a mile off but my good­ness, aren’t they pretty? Worth it, but maybe give them a miss if you’ve got an im­por­tant board meet­ing…

Ab­stract Add-ons

From: Wolf & Moon, £60 Vi­tal Stats: 5cm x 6.5cm Whoa Rat­ing: Ver­dict: These ac­etate beau­ties are as easy to wear as they are on the eye. i wore them all day long with lit­tle dis­trac­tion – apart from when peo­ple stopped me in the street to ask where they were from, obvs.

Tow­er­ing Tas­sels

From: River Is­land, £12 Vi­tal Stats: 2cm x 18cm Whoa Rat­ing: Ver­dict: Be­sides them tucking into my top (yes, they’re that long) these weren’t much trou­ble. The pom­poms made them sur­pris­ingly comfy – if they were metal, bruis­ing would oc­cur!

Be­jew­elled Beau­ties

From: ASOS, £12 Vi­tal Stats: 2cm x 11cm Woah Rat­ing: Ver­dict: They’re light, yes, but i wor­ried about them snap­ping as they’re quite del­i­cate. not one for the dance­floor. The edges of the jewels can be quite scratchy, so maybe do a cou­ple of laps in the house be­fore you head out to see if you want to com­mit to a day of wear­ing them.
