Nothing makes a statement more than mismatched earrings. But exactly what kind of statement is it? Ranging from “I’m cool and original,” to “I got dressed in the dark,” nailing the mismatched trend can be harder than it seems. And when fashion focuses on matchy-matchy accessories (red bag, red shoes, red nail polish, red lips, we get it), go against the grain and (literally) mix it up with these daring jewelry picks. When in doubt, always stick to the same metal. Normally mixing metals is fine—even chic if well executed—but when you’re mixing earrings, stick to all of the same materials. A simple stud paired with a bold chandelier—or teardrop—earring is a good place to start. For those nervous to try anything too drastic, pick two studs that complement—rather than clash with—each other. Try the unique look of the Vivienne Westwood Thin Flat Lines Orb Stud Earrings, with the Rachel Roy Druse Pave Stud Earrings—both available on ASOS.com.
So the next time you’re rummaging through your jewelry box, consider pairing two different earring styles (studs and cuffs, why not?). You’ll turn heads for sure.
