Hot! or Hmm…: Big, Bold Earrings

Last week, Beyonce popped by the UN in a Balmain tuxedo blazer, white top, and large architectural gold earrings.

While the consummate entertainer’s Texas sized earrings are part of her signature off stage style, it seems more and more women are adopting a similar ‘bigger is better’ accessories credo. You may recall when Basketball Wives Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams started rocking spiked, multi balled hoops on TV, undoubtedly looking to add some pizzazz to their cropped shots during solo interviews:

What began as simple oversized hoops has blossomed into women wearing shoulder skimming, spiked, studded creations in various colors and incarnations.

When will it end?

Look-at-me ear accents are a great way to make a statement and uplift your look. But at what point are they tacky? And how big is too big?
What do you think? Love ’em? Hate ’em?
