When fashion’s fickle trend barometer ejects one from the top spot, you can expect the pendulum to swing. The supersized puffa coat made way for slick spring cover-ups, as seen at Prada and Proenza Schouler, and the bodycon dresses of the early noughties have been replaced with longline, flowing gowns, as seen at Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana. But accessory trends are much more subtle. While small luxury handbags can sit alongside the Balenciaga super leather zip bag (in its pouffe-like dimensions) without losing their cool, jewelry is another fashion ballgame altogether. The spring season looks to earrings in their many manifestations. Now that the one-large-earring trend is behind us, the statement earring has recoupled with its matching partner––it’s now cool to wear the set again. Vogue Arabia looks to the core Spring 2017 collections that make the ‘80s power earring duo relevant again.
