Statement earrings like Cheryl!

Never mind all the fuss about Cheryl Fernando-whatshername’s green dress, and Simon Cowell’s subsequent (and pretty unoriginal and unfunny) Kermit comment, I was more interested in those earrings she was wearing on last Saturday’s X Factor!

Cheryl x factor green dress earringsThey were earrings to die for! Gorgeous, glorious, huge diamond encrusted drops. They were whoppers of the earrings world. If you’re going to wear earrings, why not make them a statement? And that’s exactly what Cheryl did on Saturday night.

So, want to copy her earring style? Easy. Just make sure they’re big, bold and sparkly. Keep them simple (well, as simple as big sparkly earrings get!) by sticking to rhinestone and diamante gems. And BHS do clip-ons for those of you without pierced ears! Choose from huge chandeliers, or slightly smaller if that’s too much, or French Connection’s long column drop style might be more your thing?

Gorgeous bold, autumnal coloured stones make your earrings a real statement. Pearls and tassels at H&M look fantastic, and filigree styles make your earrings a little softer if chunky isn’t really doing it for you.

Ice cold pastels and neutral shades in your statement earrings are the perfect complement for winter whites.
