As we’ve told you before, statement earrings are the ultimate accessories this year. They are big and loud and you won’t need much else to glam up your outfit.

In 2018 you can really have fun with your earrings, the options are unlimited, really.

 If you’ve always dreamt of having a more edgy look but turning into a rebellious-bad-ass-girl is not for you, we have good news; all you need is one of these earrings:

Ear jackets

For so long overlooked, the back of the ear is now taking the centre stage thanks to the ear jackets, these earrings which back part is ornamental instead of only holding the earring in place as before. They are a kind of “behind-ear-earrings” that hang from behind the lobe, following the curve of your ear and seem to be defying gravity.

Ear climbers or ear crawlers

The ear climber or ear crawler is a normal earring that, as the name suggests, crawls and goes up on the front part of the ear, following the curve of your lobe. It looks as if you were wearing several earrings instead of only one.

Ear cuffs

Ornate ear cuffs, that seem to be climbing your ear and go all the way around the top of the ear, are very fun to wear. Some hook on the top as if they were hugging your upper ear, others have clips to secure the upper part of the earring on the lobe. You can wear them on both ears or just one, mixing with another smaller earring, preferably a stud, it will add a pinch of punk/rebellious to your look. A bold statement that the ones such as Cara Delevingne, Sienna Miller, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba and Emma Watson like to wear.
