Earrings are a hot spring trend and now celebrities have been seen embracing long, droplet ones in order to make a fashion statement.

Dame Helen Mirren, who we all know for playing the Queen, stepped out at the 64th Annual Directors Guild of America awards wearing a pair of thin, diamond droplet earrings, states the Daily Mail.

These statement earrings helped elongate her jawline and added a touch of sparkle to her outfit.

She isn’t the only famous face who has been seen rocking statement earrings in recent weeks, as Meryl Streep wore a stylish pair of gold earrings to complement her gold gown at the Oscars on February 26th.

Meanwhile Natalie Portman took to the red carpet at the event with a pair of tear-drop earrings while Emma Stone donned a ruby and diamond pair to flatter her red hair and dress.

However, you don’t need to be an a-list celebrity to carry off a statement pair of earrings, which can be worn with a dress or a casual pair of jeans.

You can take a look for jewellery online to find the perfect pair for you and the look you want to create.

The news provider recommends staying away from garish bright earrings unless you have a tan or olive complexion although turquoise and green can flatter a face.
