We typically associate bold, in-your-face statement earrings with backyard barbecues and off-the-shoulder dresses, but they’re actually kind of perfect with fireside toddies and turtlenecks, too. When it’s gray and freezing outside, a pop of color—or, in some cases, miniature parrots hanging from your ears—provides a much-needed dose of joy. Here, 18 pairs we’re currently obsessed with.
Do these look like they were plucked off of a Christmas tree? Yes. Would we give up groceries for a month to afford them? Double yes.

Statement earrings don’t always have to be oversize. From afar these look like gold studs. On closer inspection they’re mini dinosaurs and also the coolest.
