Just becaue your ear piercings (should you have them) are permanent, doesn't mean earring trends are too. In fact, we reached out to three top jewelry designers to get the inside scoop on which ear piercings will be in and out for 2017. Whether you forgot you even have your ears pierced at all, or are someone who wears the same pair of studs every single day, let this be a lesson.
Despite aligning opinions from designers Paige Novick, Candice Pool Neistat from Finn, and Baylee Swart from Azlee that the overwhelming multiple ear piercings look will be "out" in 2017, they each have a unique take on the trends that will be "in," and let us tell you, each is just as sleek as the rest. So get ready to shop the ear piercings that will be in and out this coming year and be prepared to put a few of the following trends on the back burner for the time being!

IN: Less Is More
"I think in 2017 we will see a less-is-more approach. Statement earrings are really going to have a moment."
OUT: Piercings All the Way Up the Ear
"I think piercings that go all the way up the ear will be out in 2017. It will be more about strategic placement of holes (interesting/unusual places), rather than predictably running from top to bottom."
"Earring trends in 2017 will be all about individuality and wearing what you absolutely adore! While multiple ear piercings are not going away anytime soon, I feel that more aggressive piercings, as in nose and septum rings, may be on the decline. As RTW becomes more and more about volume, we will see this reflected in the proportions of bold single statement earrings that feel modern, chic, and glamourous."
