Kate Middleton wears them with Erdem tweed and Cardi B wears them everywhere, from the streets of Paris to the American Music Awards. Chandelier earrings are back in a serious way, and if it’s good enough for Cardi and Kate, it gets the seal of approval from us.
We’re not saying chandelier earrings ever really went away: Dolce & Gabbana produces an iteration of them every year and Topshop made them a huge part of its ready-to-wear Spring 2018 line. And the biggest stunner of all was Christopher Bailey’s Spring 2018 line for Burberry at London Fashion Week where he paired the chunkiest of earrings with riding coats, graffiti trenches and, of course, tartan.
The chandelier was a huge Spring 2018 trend and the obsession has continued on the 2019 runways. But we’re talking about the return of chandelier earrings on the most telling style radar of all: street style. And most importantly, how the easy-to-wear style and versatility of the chandelier earring means it’s a trend that might be here to stay.
Cardi, for instance, wears chandelier earrings for added drama, while Kate is basically the master at wearing the swingy, intricate earrings to amp up her effortless look. For everyday wear, it is very easy to pair chandeliers with a basic white tee and denim combo and change your entire vibe. Here, we’ve laid out all the evidence that chandelier earrings are the Swiss Army knives of your earring arsenal.
