It doesn’t take much more than a scroll through Instagram to recognize that wearing a mix of different earrings is a thing. Celebrities, bloggers, and fashion insiders have been devoted to the edgy look more than ever as of late, and it’s easy to see why. A smattering of earrings simply looks pretty. It’s almost like little constellations on your ears, if you will, but that’s not to say that bold earrings can’t be a part of the equation. We love a bold statement earring along with a few little studs thrown into the mix to complement each other, and if you have just one piercing in each ear, there’s no need to feel left out! Try wearing a different earring in each. It can be as subtle or as eye-catching as you’d like, depending on the size of the earrings.
While it may look complicated, the secret to mixing and matching earrings like a fashion girl is rather simple—anything goes, as long as it feels cohesive and uncluttered. That means mixed metals and stones in different shapes and sizes are a definite do, but keep them within a similar family (e.g., one modern statement earring and a smattering of minimalistic studs, or an ear full of delicate diamond studs and hoops).
