If you don’t like the trends of the ’80s, you’re kind of SOL this season. Truth be told, it hasn’t been the easiest pill for me to swallow. The flashy, glamorous trends of the decade have always felt a little over-the-top for me, but as someone who likes to wear the latest trends, I’m doing my best to figure out ways too subtly incorporate the ’80s into my fall wardrobe. One of the biggest ones is a cute earring trend that I’ve admittedly pondered whether or not I’m too old to wear it on multiple recent occasions. That trend is oversized heart earrings. A few years ago we might’ve called them tacky and juvenile, but the ’80s revival (and designer Alessandra Rich) has made them cool, and this statement earring trend is on the path to even match the popularity of the chunky gold hoops we all know and love.
After seeing tons of heart earrings on Instagram and on the market, I decided to ignore my hangups and just get myself a pair. I decided on a pair by Bagatiba, which I’m wearing in the photo below. The felt a little more delicate than many of the heart earrings on the market and felt like just one step above gold hoops on the “Extra” scale.
