Across the spring/summer 2023 collections was one jewelry trend we didn’t see coming but is already a huge deal: oversize studs. Designers including Saint Laurent and Rokh finished off several looks in their collections with similarly bold, sculptural earrings and it immediately piqued our interest since it hasn’t been for a while that any earring style dominated more than our tried-and-true hoops. Now, spring 2023 stands to change that.
We couldn’t discuss this trend, though, without a mention of the viral Bottega Veneta pair that has already swept the internet. Last fall, the brand debuted their Drop Earrings, an exaggerated bulb-shape, and promptly soared to the top of every fashion person and A-list celebrity’s shopping list. Fast-forward to today and designers high and low are sending out similarly oversized studs that tells us the style is sure to be major. Here, we’re charting the oversize earring trend from the runways to celebrities and highlighting the best options to shop now (hint, many are just as cool as they are affordable).
