How to Wear the Latest Single Earring Trend – Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Jewelry

Large earcuffs that go around your ears took the bazaars by storm this Spring, but that was last season. The single earring trend is the latest in-thing!! Here’s how to wear the bold single earring trend – and also mismatched earrings!

Mismatched earrings are so in right now – a bold single earring, sometimes paired with a smaller earring.



This single earring trend started in the Spring Summer runway collections, and has been all over the runways for the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collections, and this is just the beginning. We’ll be seeing more and more of this in the coming months. They look good with dresses as well as tees and tops/jeans. And they go with all hairstyles – whether your hair is down, or tied up in a bun!

So, what’s the best way to wear the single earring trend without looking like you lost an earring? Let’s take a look!

Single Earring

If you want to wear a single earring, go for big and bold, so that it looks like a statement-piece.

If you want to be more subtle, try a long earring instead of a big one. Ones with different geometric shapes are very in. If you are not wearing any other pieces of jewelry, it’s safe to try bold bright colors that contrast your outfit.

If you are wearing other pieces of jewelry, like a necklace, the safest bet is to wear them in matching colors.

Dare to add more drama to your look and show off your face? Try a large single earring that pops out or contrasts your dress. That’ll divert all attention to your jawline and cheeks.

So that’s the single earring trend. And now, here’s how to wear mismatched earrings:

Mix n Match Earrings

The best way to wear this trend is to match a large earring with a smaller one. A thumb rule is to keep the base metal of both earrings the same. For example, pair gold with gold.

Again, for a dramatic look, try an earring with a color that pops and contrasts your outfit.

If both the earrings are colored, the safest way is for them to be the same color. For example, the model’s earrings are co-ordinated with her glasses and outfit.

Or use one common color between the two earrings.

Or pair your large earring with a matching earcuff, like Gigi here!! I also love how she has thrown in a matching chain necklace with what looks like her name in the pendant.

So will you be wearing this awesome single earring trend this season? Or the mismatched earrings? I sure will be!! 🙂
