Are Statement Earrings the New Nail Art?

Thanks to Marc Jacobs, nail art is officially dead, so what will take its place as the sort of cheap, but infinitely creative way to accessorize? All four major Fashion Weeks are arguing that statement earrings could be it—and the more offbeat, the better.

You can get creative with the glue gun like Swarovski for Dries van Noten did (ow) or just replace your ear phones with metallic orbs á la Alexis Bittar for Thierry Mugler. If those options are too involved, maybe just hang something awesome off of them, like Roberto Cavalli did, or put a cuff on it, like Kimberly Ovitz. Maybe try them all at the same time. Whoa. Check out 8 very varied options in the gallery above.
