15 Hairstyles to Show Off Your Statement Earrings

Statement earrings are big news—about as big as, well, they are. Not only were they spotted on the Versace and Dolce and Gabbana catwalks this season, but they're all over Instagram too. Investing in a knockout pair of ear adornments is just good sense since, like a swipe of red lipstick, the right pair of earrings can make you look polished, without very much effort at all.

The thing is, though, whether you choose a chandelier style, an oversized tassel or something altogether more architectural, the question is how on earth do you wear your hair? There's little point in weighing down your ears with some hefty gems or a mega ear cuff, just to let you hair hang like a curtain over them. And on the flip side, somedays you don't just want to fall back into simple topknot territory. No, you want a hairstyle that frames your earrings in the best possible way.
