A few weeks ago, Walmart reported a surge in the sale of tops, but not of bottoms, citing COVID-19 as the likely reason. It’s not surprising given that office workers across the country are participating in virtual meetings, leaving behind the need to wear an entire office-appropriate ensemble. Personally, while I’ve tried to at least wear jeans with a blouse during business e-meetings, there have been a few times that I’ve kept my yoga pants on, affectionately calling them my “pandemic pants.” Something I have consistently worn for those virtual face-to-face meetings has been a pair of statement earrings. Earrings effortlessly pull together your half-outfit and flatter your face during those on-screen appearances. Below, I’ve rounded up ten pairs that have caught my eye during the pandemic and I’ll vouch for the Jenny Bird hoops that I recently purchased. The organic, slightly irregular shape make them much more interesting than just your standard hoops.
When I don’t do these roundups for awhile, they quickly turn into a list of things I recently purchased, things I bought while creating the post, or things I have on my wish list and will probably buy soon enough. Take those Vince sneakers for instance. I have that style in navy and I wear them all of the time. I also have a platform style in that linen fabric. So, when I found the perfect marriage of the two for 44% off, I obviously hit add-to-cart. (They arrive tomorrow.) That sweater? I ordered it as I was creating this post. It’s worth clicking through because it has such a great texture to the knit. And that necklace? It’s a new Jenny Bird piece, so it’s not actually en route to me, but I did buy this one a couple of weeks ago. We can probably just consider this my early spring wish list.
