Ya’ll it’s hot! It hit 100 Saturday and was 93 with a “feels like” 101 temperature on Sunday. Those temps make me just want to throw on a breezy tee shirt dress and go, but I don’t want to look like I just threw something on. One of my suggestions for staying stylish and cool during hot weather is to add a fun pair of statement earrings.

It’s too hot and sticky for necklaces or scarves around your neck, but a fun pair of large, bright earrings will take your simple summer outfits up a notch. There are lots of lightweight earrings on the market now, but if you need some help keeping them in place, I highly recommend these backs or these.
When it’s hot, you may also be tempted to put your hair in a ponytail or slick it back. Go ahead! A pair of bold, colorful earrings will have the opportunity to shine and will balance your look.
A pair of statement earrings can also draw attention up and away from other body parts you don’t want noticed- stomach, hips, larger arms.
Just be sure to pick a pair that flatters your face shape. Drop or dangle earrings will flatter a round face, while square shaped faces can be soften with round earrings. A guide for measuring and determining your face shape is linked in my article on How to Look Good in A Hat. That brings me to another point:
Statement earrings look good with a hat!
Especially when you pull your hair back or for us ladies with short hair, earrings keep the look more lady like.

Still not comfortable with embracing a large pair of earrings? Here are a few more tips:
Match them to a color in your outfit. If you are wearing a printed top or bottoms, pick one of those colors and wear a pair of bold earrings in that color. I did that with both my shoes and earrings here:
If you want to go matchy-matchy, that’s okay too.
Wear a pair in a contrasting color. A neutral outfit of chambray or black and white gets a punch from a colorful earring.
Go neutral with your earrings. Tortoise or leopard earrings or even large gold or silver earrings can balance an outfit if you are wearing busy patterns.
There is really no right or wrong way to wear statement earrings. Have fun with it!
