11 Statement Earrings You Can Wear To Work

statement earrings
Lana Jewelry $735 $440.98

Statement earrings are my go-to accessory. There is no better spotlight for your face, and they don’t require other jewelry to complete your look. My minimalist clients who want to play with accessories, but not have to worry about matching or dealing with multiple pieces, love that bold earrings can carry an outfit alone.

For those who want to sport statement earrings in the office, it’s important to select earrings that make a statement without exclaiming, “Let’s party!” The key is to have a heap of sophistication, bypass trendy items, and skip anything too large or blingy. Below are my favorite statement earrings that I have added to my clients’ work wardrobes this month.

Halogen Multi Ring Hoop Earrings

Halogen $29

These Halogen Multi Ring Hoop Earrings are actually smaller than they appear, and the gold is more of a soft metallic rather than a yellow gold, making it flattering on most, if not all skin tones.

Halogen Double Circle Drop Earrings

Halogen $35

Sculptural and versatile enough for everyday wear, the Halogen Double Circle Drop Earrings feature interlocking metallic hoops that are large, but work appropriate.

Argento Vivo Frontal Hoop Earrings

Argento Vivo $58

I love how a front facing hoop is unexpectedly bold. These Argento Vivo Frontal Hoop Earrings are lightweight, visible, and versatile.

J.Crew Colorful Floral Hoop Earrings

J.Crew $65

I know these J.Crew Colorful Floral Hoop Earrings seem blingy, but they can work in a more fashion-forward environment. You can even pair these with prints if you’re feeling bold. I have to warn you though, they are a little heavy. Only those with ears of steel can go an 8-hour day in them. I personally would wear these earrings for a speaking engagement. An hour or two is very doable.

J.Crew Oval Drop Earrings

J.Crew $38

These J.Crew Oval Drop Earrings work with just about anything. I especially love pairing them with a shift dress or printed blouse. They are available at Nordstrom and J.Crew.

J.Crew Bead & Blossom Earrings

I can’t get enough of these super lightweight J.Crew Bead & Blossom Earrings. They are available at both Nordstrom and J.Crew.

J.Crew Striped Bead Drop Earrings

J.Crew $24.50

These J.Crew Striped Bead Drop Earrings are insanely lightweight and completely charming. You can wear them with any type of work look – unless you’re an attorney.

Sole Society Tiered Geo Statement Earrings

Sole Society $49.95

I’m all about the mixed-metal, tiered goodies. These Sole Society Tiered Geo Earrings are a great work appropriate option. The earrings are available at Nordstrom and Sole Society.

J.Crew Love Knot Drop Earrings

J.Crew $58 $34.80

These colorful J.Crew Love Knot Drop Earrings work with both prints and solids. I would love to see them with a pastel colored suit.

J.Crew Circle And Tassel Earrings

These J.Crew Circle And Tassel Earrings go with anything from jeans to suits. They are available at Nordstrom and J.Crew.

Ann Taylor Seed Bead Drop Earrings

The Ann Taylor Seed Bead Drop Earrings look cheap, but wear beautifully. They are small and lightweight, and can work with any outfit that needs a pop of color.

Nakamol Design ‘Cecilia’ Labradorite Tiered Drop Earrings

statement earrings
Nakamol Design $40

These Nakamol Design ‘Cecilia’ Labradorite Tiered Drop Earrings look amazing with turtlenecks, shells, and sweaters. It’s best not to pair them with large prints or a traditional suit.

Lana Jewelry ‘Bond’ Small Double Hoop Earrings

I am obsessed with these sexy Lana Jewelry ‘Bond’ Small Double Hoop Earrings. They work with everything from suits to t-shirts. You could wear these every day and everywhere if you wanted. Just try it.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘Star Girl’ Drama Medallion Drop Earrings

statement earrings
Rebecca Minkoff $60 $40.80

These Rebecca Minkoff ‘Star Girl’ Drama Medallion Drop Earrings are probably the least “worky,” but can fly in many of my clients’ offices. They look best with jeans and “fun” work outfits.

    Great picks! I especially appreciate the mixed metals choices for a work wardrobe. I wear a silver toned watch and most of my other jewelry is gold. Will be looking further at some of these options.

      Hi Laura! Mixed metal is a great way for your jewelry to “speak” to each other. So glad you enjoyed!
