Why are single earrings so popular right now?
Sporting multiple delicate earrings, is the status symbol de jour with fashion fully embracing the trend for an eclectic curated ear. Single earrings are having their moment, as they are giving those with a taste for the individual a way to show their curated ear flair.
There are some crazy expensive single earrings on the market, but you don't need a budget for diamonds and 24 Carat gold to enjoy the fun. This seasons's Scream Pretty collection features democratically priced sterling silver earrings from £15.
How perfect is this mixtape huggie for festival season?
You don't even need another piercing to enjoy a extravagantly stacked ear - these single ear cuffs can be slipped on to sit in the conch position. No pain, YES gain.
Political strife tends to seed punk/anti establishment expression in fashion. The one thing the nation seems to agree on is that 2019 has been a bit of nightmare so far. The current fashion mood is to experiment more rebelliously, playfully and mindfully. With accessories; the trend for oversized pieces and super dainty jewellery in innovative multiple piercings continues to evolve and individuality is key.
SS19 runways, even alongside the perennial 'florals for Spring motif.' (See Prada, Versace & Alexander McQueen) are full of white shirts, chunky trainers, oversize blazers and chunky chains - notable overlaps in street style & couture with punk overtones in the accessories - we're seeing chunky chains, safety pins and spiky studs with a design heritage referencing the 70's punk aesthetic.
Not just in Pairs The modern earring addict is just as inclined to buy a single earring or trio as a traditional pair.
The mismatched approach and vogue for multiple, unusual piercings allows for any number of combinations. Here are a few we've been admiring this season:
Chloe Hayward, takes Celestial Inspiration with an enchanting constellation of starburst hoops and studs, pairing dainty gold huggie hoops with earcuffs stacked at intervals up her lobe.
Chloe's defined parting in her textured long bob makes a feature of her visible ear.
Co-ordinated Asymmetry Asymmetry is a refreshing antidote to polish and gloss. Co-ordinated set of huggies and tiny studs allow for multiple combinations. Small huggie hoops stacked across multiple piercings look fresh and create impact with or without larger statement pieces
Choose whether to theme your curated ear using a coloured gem like a turquoise or opal, or if you just want to create a mash up of all you favourite single earrings and ear cuffs, just go for it.
