Now that the days are growing longer and brighter we have to admit: after a year without much dressing up, there’s something extra-enticing about expressing ourselves with some new spring earrings. Sure, we’ve all got that one signature statement pair that’s become our Zoom-friendly go-to, but the thought of stepping out into the sunshine in a fresh set of face-framing pretties is enough to make any of us giddy for another season of outdoor frolicking. From dazzling danglers to cheerful mix-and-match designs, here are six exciting styles perfect for bringing that big, beautiful personality out of cold-weather hibernation.
