Besides shoes and outfits, accessories are one of the essential things to dress up or down any look. Even a simple jeans-tee combo can turn into an evening party pick with the right choice of jewelry. Whether it’s dainty pieces or chunky statements, your earrings can elevate the subtle appeal of your outfit and define your facial features.
Hence, it becomes all the more important to play around with designs and styles of your accessories to amp up the style quotient of your look. Gone are the days when people only considered accessories as side pieces and mere add-ons to their attire. Instead, they are getting a lot more attention from fashion-forward girls who always want to make their ensembles stand out. From quirky charms to oxidized silver jhumkas, they have become integral to a woman’s closet.
While hoop earrings have never gone out of trend, a recent trend is playing with different designs to create unique jewelry art. Take Beyonce’s example; she wore a pair of layered hoop earrings that replicated a kid’s toy with her cream deep-neck dress, hot pink bag, and tortoise sunglasses. She looked chic in the oversized earrings, and her hair was pulled back in a high-braided half ponytail.
Another celeb who is playing with the designs of her earpieces is Taylor Swift. She paired her midnight-blue Roberto Cavalli co-ord set with kite-shaped diamond earrings by Lorraine Schwartz for her Grammy night look. The earrings, crafted of over 136 carats of white and black diamonds, took her attention off her shoulders and accentuated her eyes.
In the same way, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja stepped out in a fringed crepe kaftan dress by Dubai-based label Taller Marmo with a pair of oxidized silver earrings and ear cuffs from Indian brand Ayana Jewellery. The actor’s minimal jewelry complemented her boho-inspired ensemble and accentuated her beautiful face and lustrous tresses.
These days, many minimalist jewelry brands are also coming up with quirky designs to suit your style and preferences. The LA-based brand BYCHARI, for instance, offers a wide range of personalized pendant necklaces and threader earrings that work perfectly with your everyday outfits. Its pieces feature a subtle nod to nostalgia and have elements like safety pin details and heavier chains (reminiscent of ’80s punk and ‘90s skate culture). These styles can give your basic outfits an effortless edge.
