Ask Rachel: Everything Earrings

Share

Love this question! It is no secret that I deeply cherish jewelry in every form—and earrings in particular are a dazzling way to make a statement. Depending on what your personal style is—studded, drop or clip-on—there are endlessa-mah-zing ear gems to lust over.

For a night on the town, I like adding an extra “pop” of glam to my outfit with a cluster of rhinestones, glistening studs or jewel-colored drop earrings. However, if you gravitate toward a more modern look, sleek geometric earrings may be a more fitting choice. The mix of color and shape in Bing Bang’s Cherokee Geometric Earrings is beyond.

To incorporate a tough girl-meets-uptown chic vibe into a chosen ensemble, find a pair of earrings that balances sparkle and spikes—like Fenton/Fallon for J.Crew’s Jaw Earrings. The tiny crystal jewels and oxidized spikes are everything—test drive them with a maxi dress, leather jacket and distressed motorcycle boots for a look that turns heads.

An equally stylish option, clip-on earrings have really taken the spotlight in modern design…i.e. Alexis Bittar’s Modern Georgian Smoky Qtz Clip Earrings. Lastly, keep in mind that a great statement pair of earrings does not always mean the bigger the better—sometimes a simple studded pair can make just as much of an impact. A tiny amount of twinkle can go a long way! xoRZ
