How to get the look: Mismatched earrings
Sunday 08 June 2014
Oh gawd, a tad affected, no?
Agreed, there is something about asymmetry – usually in the form of exaggerated haircuts – that looks, despite the presumed intention of casual charm, a bit try-hard. Nevertheless, earrings of many crazy varieties are enjoying a moment right now and among them mismatched earrings are kind of cute, we think.
Well, mismatching some earrings should be a cinch, I do it every day with my socks, my bra/pants combo… occasionally my shoes if it's been a really heavy night
Actually, somewhere in fashionland, kindly folk have been mismatching things perfectly so you don't have to.
Yup, this pair from Uribe (£225, my-wardrobe.com, above) are an arty investment and, since the droppers are attached to the butterfly clasps, you can swap the lapis lazuli studs for others. Versatile, eh?
OK, anything a little less Arts and Crafts?
For holidays, Rachel Roy's set of six sea charm studs (£28, asos.com) – think mini shells and shark teeth – are a sweet bargain option. Or for even tighter budgets, you can of course raid your jewellery box and just wear a single earring for the ultimate (Louis Vuitton and Céline catwalk-endorsed) mismatch.
