Statement Colors

Precious metals look amazing and will never go out of style, but statement colors are really giving them a run for their money. A pop of a bright or even neon color in your earrings is enough to set off an entire outfit. The best earrings are those that mix the color with a precious metal, such as green and gold. Pair them with an all black outfit, and you’re going to turn heads for all the right reasons.

Stacked Earrings

You’ve probably seen girls already rocking this look, so it’s time to get on board. People with multiple piercings have been layering on the earrings, just as you would with rings. You can mix and match as you please, so there’s no wrong way to wear this trend. If you want to get started, you can wear one statement earring, and then layer up with smaller, simpler ones. You can even mix colors and metals
if that’s your bag.

Mismatched Earrings

Anyone who wore odd earrings as a kid is going to love this new fashion statement. People are now wearing mismatched earrings and making the look work for them. In fact, there are companies who are now selling single earrings that let customers pick out their favorites to mix and match. It’s your middle school look, updated for the present and looking much more grown up. Who can resist?

Unusual Materials

Think that earrings should always be a precious metal? Think again. Designers are thinking up new and exciting ways to make their new earring collections. Notable designs so far include matte gray marble used as a statement in a pair of drop earrings
and black enamel which contrasts beautifully with emeralds to create a bold piece. But there are incredible geodes, lace, beads, poms, and other materials creating brilliant designs as well.
