Let’s just say I LOVE earrings! I love them so much I have three piercings on each ear. I even had a small earring line of my own a few years back.
Over the years I have had lots of fun with adding earrings to complete my outfits. They can really make an outfit pop.
I believe you don’t need a lot of earrings, you just need some staples in your collection that will complete any look.
As you can see I have everything from high end brands like Chanel & Angelina Alvarez to affordable brands like Kmart & Lovisa.
I have put together 7 essential earring styles every women should have in their jewellery box:
The hoops: You know what they say… “Bigger the hoop, bigger the hoe”, wise words from Khloe K right? I love hoop earrings and am always losing mine after a night out or whilst on vacay. These are my go to hoops from Kmart for $4.00. They come in four different sizes which come in handy for events, work, holidays & date night. I highly recommend adding a gold and silver set to your collection too.
The statement earring: I love a tasteful statement earring, especially whilst on holiday with a little white dress. My go to is the Caroline earring I recently wore to Melbourne fashion week, as I don’t wear a lot of colour these really complete my outfit. (I will be wearing these all summer). A large detailed earring is a huge trend with the socialites in Melbourne. Shop the Caroline earring here
The investment piece: Say no more I’ve had these for years but these beauties only come out for special occasions. I remember wearing the fake ones early in my teens and then my friends bought me the real deal for a birthday many years ago. They still give me the same excitement I felt when receiving them. They are Chanel. They speak for themselves. I would pick these babies over diamonds any days. The CC iconic logo will be a style that never goes out of fashion. My pair is not available as they are quite old but check out Chanel’s costume jewellery here
The wedding earring: Another gorgeous creation from Angelina Alvarez. The battina earring is simply divine and will go with a power suit or stunning little black dress. I will wear this stunning set to weddings and events for years. A style that will never go out of fashion. Shop here
The festival hoop: I told ya, I love a good hoop, but when I want to add a little funk and protection to my ears these stunning earrings from Zoë Alexandria are my go to. What I love most is the gemstone is interchangeable and can slide off to a plain silver earring (brilliant for when jumping into the water this summer). There are 10 gem stones to choose from when purchasing, perfect for your inner festival and gypsy gal. Shop here
Diamonds without the price tag: Let’s be honest who can afford diamond earrings? I would probably loose them in a day. Seriously I am the worst. I collaborated with MYJS a few years back but have recommended the store to all my friends as the earring quality is amazing. I have a few pairs and highly recommend checking out MYJS if you’re after studs, hoops or more formal earrings. Perfect for us girls on a budget. Forget diamonds, sterling silver is my best friend. Shop MYJS here
A pearl like earing: Pearls are such a classic, I highly recommend having a set of pearls in your collection. Pearls are so Chanel! I have these black pearl like earrings from Tiffany & Co, I don’ think there pearls but they look like pearls. Same same but different right? haha. I love that they are black and can be worn casual or for a formal outing.
So there you have it. Hope you enjoyed taking a look into my jewellery collection. What are your go to earrings?
