From tropical flowers to raffia styles and jewel encrusted statement pairs, we’ve handpicked the best OTT earrings sure to elevate all your summer looks.

A statement earring with an evening look is always a winner but there’s something inherently cool, a little rebellious even about pairing a great big unashamedly OTT pair with something low-key. Summer is the perfect time to do so, whether that’s with a chic one-piece swimsuit on the beach or a classic white tee and denim cuts-offs combo.

This season, there are plenty of styles to peruse across all budgets. If you’re looking to invest, Oscar de la Renta is an obvious choice. His clip-on crystal earrings that resemble a wedge of lime are the perfect holiday accessory to sit back and sip on picantes with. For something more art-inspired, Oslo-based (by way of NET-A-PORTER) brand, PEARL OCTOPUSS.Y take something quite traditional – the humble pearl – and weave it into really cool, contemporary and abstract pieces. The natural hues of the  oyster earrings work particularly well paired with denim or white broderie anglaise.

And for cheap and cheerful, you can’t beat Zara and Mango. They have a style for just about everyone, from fruit-inspired to tropical plants, raffia drops to princess-esque jewels.
