Every girl needs a good stud; don’t let your mind wander, I’m talking about stud earrings! From dainty diamonds to big time bling, stud earrings are popular for everyday ease. They are practical, subtle, and beautiful for any age. Stud earrings are versatile and can be worn from day to night while still being relevant and complimentary to either kind of outfit. Stud earrings come in a variety of styles and materials. 14kt gold are always a standard, as you can wear a pair of gold and diamond earrings to your wedding, prom, or even to work and they will always remain classic and brilliant. Letter studs are also very popular and great for gifts. Large flower studs, simple gemstones, cute little animals, bows, pearls, gold or silver ball studs, and many more styles are available.
Multiple ear piercings are not out of the ordinary in this day and age. Combinations of 2-3 (or more) lobe piercings are extremely common. It looks adorable to wear graduated sized studs, with the smallest gem on the top and the largest on the bottom of the lobe. The cartilage in pretty much every part of your ear can be pierced; do not just limit yourself to just lobe piercings. The daith, conch, rook, helix, and tragus are just a few of the myriad of options for more unique ear piercings.
Multipacks of stud earrings are economical and smart for those of us with multiple ear piercings. I love the look of coordinated earrings. Multiple gem earrings going down the ear with a trendy ear hugging stud earring on the bottom looks fantastic. The ear hugging ” back dangle” studs are really popular right now. How they work is the stud goes through the front of the ear like normal, and the dangling part that hugs your ear is attached in the back. My favorites are the ones that say things, like the word love.
Chain Connections and Ear Cuffs
Punk fashion has involved chains for decades. Chains connecting multiple piercings create a web of desire. It looks awesome to connect an earring to a nose ring as well. Even if you only have a single ear piercing you can take part in this trend by using a earring to ear cuff piece of chain jewelry. This gives the illusion of a cartilage piercing. Ear cuffs are hugely popular this summer. From simple silver or gold cuffs, to dangle and elaborate chain cuffs, you can find them on the runway or on any young street fashionista.
Hoops and Tunnel Plugs
Hoop earrings are utterly classic and will never be out of style. You can get hoops in a plethora of small and large sizes. Large silver or gold tone basic hoops add a little bit of 90’s urban flair to your current style. Gold is making a huge comeback this year, so get on trend with some new hoops. I love the look of an ear full of graduated hoop earrings. You can say a lot with large ball hoop earrings. Show off your unique point of view by buying the earring in several colors and mix and match the designs to coordinate with your style.
Do you have plugs? Have no fear! Just because you have stretched lobes does not mean that you cannot wear trendy hoops as well. Tunnel plugs with hoops, especially embellished with beautiful drop dangles to create drama and glamour, are huge right now. The hoop sits in the middle of the tunnel to complete a dynamic look like no other.
