Mercedes Salazar earrings

Statement earrings have been a fixture on the runway for multiple seasons now, and besides the choker, are undeniably the accessory du jour.

However, bigger is always better, and Colombian designer Mercedes Salazar’s line of vibrant and (literally) shoulder dusting earrings are impressively dramatic. Her line has become a staple amongst the fashion and music set (Katy Perry donned a pair on Instagram and Lauren Santo Domingo), and her earrings the biggest hit. Made with a Latin influence in mind, the hand-made fabrications (like mini pom poms and swishy tassels) they have a certain joi de vivre that can sometimes only be achieved by putting on something fantastic.
