    Forget Pinterest, these days if you want some fashion inspiration, all you need to do is head straight to Instagram.

    From the must-have Warehouse dress to the designer accessories all the bloggers are wearing, it’s a veritable treasure trove of style.

    And if you’re looking for the one accessory that’ll instantly update your wardrobe, of course it has the answer.

    You might have noticed that statement earrings are having a bit of a moment, and tassel earrings in particular are the ones to buy.

    They’ve even got their own hashtag, which boasts over 110k at time of writing.

    Now those H&M earrings sold out in red a while back, but they’re still available in rose gold and silver.
