Door Knocker Earrings
Lion's Head Door Knocker Earrings
I've been looking for some statement earrings recently and the door knocker style earrings have been all over the internet. Last week, I found these lion's head door knocker earrings from a brand called Vanessa Mooney. I immediately fell in love with them. They are unique and fun, just how I want a statement piece to be. I love the brass gold color and the size is perfect for a bold look. Plus, I've been lusting a pair of lion's head earrings from Gucci. These door knocker earrings really remind me of those. I've been playing around with them since they arrived. And I think I found the best outfit to wear with these Door Knocker Earrings.
What To Wear With Bold Earrings
The outfit I chose to wear with these exotic door knocker earrings is actually the opposite of exotic - I went for a classic and elegant look. I'm wearing my Theory trench coat which is my favorite spring fashion piece. I talked about two different ways to style this trench coat in a recent blog post and this outfit is another great look. Underneath it, I'm wearing a floral print dress from last year with my Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots. The dress filled the look with spring vibes and the boots keep me warm because it's still very cold in New York. I chose my Gucci bag to match the brass color of the door knocker earrings. I think this outfit works perfectly with the bold earrings because they give each balance. The elegant look toned down the boldness of the door knocker earrings and the lion's heads add some edgy feeling to an otherwise ordinary everyday look.
So, when it comes to bold earrings, my philosophy is finding the balance. I don't want to look overpowering bold so I often wear softer and more feminine outfit with them. I hope my look gives you some inspiration of how to pull off a pair of bold door knocker earrings.
Do you like bold earrings? And how do you wear them??
