Move over, statement necklace! Earrings are back in a big way. They’re beaded, bedazzled, colorful, geometric, beautiful or whimsical—it doesn’t really matter as long as they’re bold!

Spring 2012 Runway Fashion Trend: Bold Whimsical Statement Earrings

So now a let’s get personal. I love the idea of this trend, but I’m not sure I’ll get on board this time around. A few years ago I stopped wearing heavy earrings when I noticed that older women always donning them were victims of the stretched earlobe. I started buying small stud earrings instead, and now they’re my every-day adornment; wearing heavy earrings gives me stretched-earlobe-flash-forwards.

However if I were to get on board with this trend, I admit I’m pretty lusty over the Oscar de la Rentas.

    Years ago I noticed the same thing on older women- some of them not so old! I’ve bought a few bigger bold pairs recently, but have been very choosy and only picking very lightweight ones.

    Yes, me too. The few bold pairs I have are very lightweight. How funny–er, not funny?–that we both do this!
