October marks the official start of the fall season—autumn leaves, comfy sweaters and the infamous PSL from Starbucks. There are days, however, that manage to defy our expectations. Although inconsistent weather can be inconvenient, it also gives us the opportunity to break out our favorite pieces from the previous season.

On an unusually warm day in London, I spotted this Fashionista in between classes on a stroll around Bedford Square. Taking advantage of the weather, she wore a pair of black lace shorts along with a floral top and tan wedge booties. She also sported a casual blazer to fend off the occasional wind. Aside from the bold move of bringing back some summer favorites, the most eye-catching aspect of her outfit was her statement ear cuff. This past summer, I saw a bunch of Fashionistas and Fashionistos around New York City with some serious ear party situations, and I’m glad to see it’s carrying on into the fall. Though sometimes overlooked, accessories can be the defining feature that ties the outfit together. The right bracelet combination can liven up a simple T-shirt and jeans ensemble. A dainty chain necklace can complement a delicate blouse. Ear cuffs are great for taking the standard stud or hoop earring to the next level. You can find countless designs, from embellished patterns, like this Fashionista’s, to simple faux hoops and chains to match your personal style.

How To: Love the look of multiple ear piercings, but aren’t daring enough to make them permanent? Ear cuffs are the perfect solution! They make it super easy to mix and match your favorite pieces without the commitment.
