ALL IN THE DETAILS: If You Like It, Put an Earring on It

September 8th, 2015 at 2:00am

Every Fashionista knows that accessories can either make or break the perfect outfit. While some types of accessories come and go over the years, there is one type of accessory that will probably always be in style: earrings. The great thing about earrings is that there are hundreds of different varieties out there so it’s not hard to find a pair that will suit you, whether it be pearls for a classy look or feathers if you are more on the bohemian side.

I loved this Fashionista’s brown romper and how her gold earrings matched the shape of the pattern throughout it. The purple and jade match as well. This is a great example of how to use earrings to add to your outfit without overdoing it. Her brown saddle shoes also match to finish off the look. It’s simple yet trendy and perfect for class, which I assume she had just come from or was headed to soon when I approached her on campus.

Another really cool thing about earrings is that they are a great way to show your spirit. When the holidays come around, you can find all kinds of festive earrings such as snowmen, pumpkins or Easter eggs. There’s even earrings for you to sport on game day: go team! You can also possibly tell a lot about someone’s personal style and/or interests by the earrings they wear. For example, some people may have multiple holes in one ear or wear earrings that resemble their favorite animal.

In our society today, earrings aren’t just worn by women either. Many men get their ears pierced and wear earrings regularly, even though men may not have as much of a variety as women. It’s so cool to see both genders wear an accessory that was probably mostly geared toward women in the past. Don’t have your ears pierced? Earrings come in clip-on styles too! No matter what your ears look like, you can without a doubt find the perfect pair of earrings to add the finishing touches to your outfit.

How To: Analyze the style you are going for and find a pair of earrings that match it. Make sure the earrings don’t take away from your outfit. If you have a lot going on already, you might want to go with studs. Remember to show off who YOU are!
