While we're all for sticking to the jewelry box classics we've worn thousands of times, there's nothing like a quirky accessory trend to shake up our everyday looks. Because 90% of the time, the key to an expensive-looking outfit isn't actually its price tag but the way you accessorized. The right jewelry can make even the simplest of outfits look way more stylish. But aside from the layered necklaces and rings that seem to be everywhere right now, there's one jewelry trend the fashion set has fully embraced, and it makes any wearer look like an insider.
I'm talking about the single-earring trend. It's not necessarily a brand-new concept in accessorizing, but it's every fashion insider's secret way of appearing more forward. From simple dainty drop earrings to playful charms and artistic sculptural designs, there are so many fresh ways to approach the asymmetrical trend. Whether your style tends to the minimalist, maximalist, or somewhere in between, there's an earring here you'll love. Below, see how fashion girls are styling single earrings; then shop our favorites to wear solo.
