Best 80s Earrings Ideas

80s Earrings Montage
For this post, I am going to show you some of the best 80s earrings on the web that will add a nice finishing touch to your outfit.


All of these awesome earrings (above) were handmade and designed by Laura G. Wingrove at Etsy. They look great and are perfect for adding something unique to your 80s look.

There is actually a thriving and growing market for original, vintage 80s jewellery, and one of the best stores to find it at is Etsy.

Creating an eighties look can be as simple or complex as you want it to be. Some people may choose to wear something as simple as T-shirt, skirt and accessories, while others decide to go for the full works. One thing is certain, though, a loud pair of 80s style earrings will really add a bit of zest to just about any outfit.

Nothing was discreet with 80s fashion, so you really want your earrings to be seen, so make them big or loud. Plastic earrings in neon colours are ideal.

One of the best stores to find them at is Amazon.

Lightning bolts and zig zag shapes became a big part of 80s artwork design, as did geometric shapes, particularly triangles.

These stainless steel triangular earrings by Sabai NYC could be worn with any outfit, whether at work or at play. They measure around 2 inches by 1 inch. Sadly, they do not ship to the UK.

Triangle Stud Earrings

If you can wear stud earrings then these alloy (low cost) earrings will certainly be seen at over 9cm in length. They're ideal for 80s dress-up.

Animal Print Hoop Earrings

Animal print was everywhere in the 80s, and these leopard spot earrings are lightweight and come in a round or flat design. They're available at Amazon.com and they also ship to the UK.

Neon Pink Hoop Earrings

Big plastic hoop earrings are ideal and come in a range of colours. Don't be afraid to use garish, clashing colours with your accessories such as orange and pink and yellow.


Etsy is a great place to find original, vintage items or new hand-made items. Chances are that the earrings above may be sold out by the time you're reading this, but it gives you an idea of what's available.

I particularly like this 4 piece accessory set because it includes a polka dot hair bow, and there are five different colours available. I couldn't find this exact item at the U.S. Amazon, but you may like this alternative set by JustineCostume which comes in a wide range of colours.
