NATALIE TINK DISCOVERS SOME CHARMING EAR CANDY WITH TASSLES ON TOP
Everywhere you look this season it’s all about the ear candy. Bold statement earrings are right on trend for summer. One of my fave new trends this season is the fringed or tassel earring, which works really well with a maxi dress and is the ultimate weekend earring. Recently I found a beautiful pair called Long Champagne, a name that instantly had me captured. Long Champagne are created by Deux, and at just $30, they work for the bank balance too. Another shop I’m quickly becoming obsessed with is Spotting Unicorns, and not just because of their cool name: they really know a thing or two about the statement earring. Bright tassels, fabulous colours and a range that will have you spoilt for choice. One of my recent favourites are the 3D rectangles in bold monochrome. This edgy design is perfect to add to your everyday workwear or some wow factor to a little black dress. Spotting Unicorns’ handmade beauties start from only $20, a great price point considering the work that must go into creating them. And when it comes to wow factor, Zeph and Co really have captured the market with their cool designs and unique accessories. I recently teamed their Speckled Disc earrings up with a striped bodysuit, breaking all the fashion rules, but it worked beautifully. If tassels and large drop earrings are not for you, Short Story have turned the bland stud earring upside down with their super cute Bubble earrings, priced from $29.95. Statement earrings are a great way of staying on trend for summer without updating your wardrobe.
