From Deepika Padukone to Sonam Kapoor, everyone is wearing these earrings

Put your inner minimalist to sleep, this is no place for her to be. Statement earrings are back to ruling the runways—and our jewellery kits—and this season, they come strictly in XXL, with a heavy dose of fringe on the side. Behold, the maximalist tassel earrings that everyone from Bollywood celebrities to the cool crew of street style have fallen head over heels for. You probably noticed this statement style first putting in a bold appearance with Deepika Padukone, soaking up the spotlight alongside the star’s international red carpet debut at the MTV EMAs 2016. Decked in standout separates from Monisha Jaising, Padukone went in for the kill with shoulder-grazing tassels from Valliyan. The rest is history, of the headline-making kind.

Borrow from the best
When in doubt, look to Bollywood’s cool kids to decode trends for you. After Padukone gave the trend her stamp of approval, new mom Kareena Kapoor Khan went print-on-print in Missoni separates with turquoise tassels dusting her collarbone, courtesy Valliyan. Sonam Kapoor elevated a basic traditional look by coordinating her tasseled Rashmi Verma dupatta with similar fringed earrings. If you’re looking to break free of the pack, take notes from Shraddha Kapoor who gave hers a metallic update.

Wear it right
Once you’ve found a pair as vibrant as your personality in the right length—we personally believe shoulder-grazing or nothing—let your tasseled add-ons have their moment fair and square in the spotlight by opting for a pulled-back hairstyle. These conversation-starters come in all vivid hues of the rainbow, which makes them the perfect pick-me-up for when the winter blues hit. However, the main allure of this trend perhaps lies in the fact that they are incredibly DIY-friendly, so if you’ve binged on Stranger Things 2 twice already and don’t quite know what to do with your free time, feel free to let your creative side take over and craft your very own statement-making pair.

What you definitely shouldn’t do
Take heed; the more-is-more vibe of this trend means that you could easily end up on the wrong side of maximalist fashion if you don’t take caution. If you’re looking to coordinate your tassels precisely with your outfit, ensure that you work in another colour in the final look, either by way of shoes or a belt to break the monotony. If your tasseled pair crosses the collarbone in terms of length, it’s advisable to take a rain check on necklaces altogether to avoid diverting attention.

Whether it’s at a sun-kissed beach in Hawaii or your weekly brunch with the girls, if you’re looking to work this statement style, pick from our edit of the hottest pieces of the season.
