Shop for earrings on Polyvore, from rockstar studs to big architectural hoops to even cartilage pieces that sit up high on the ear. Not sure what to look for? Here’s some help to get you started.
Studs come in all colors and sizes, from ever-so-small metallic micro-earrings that sit delicately against your earlobe, to large and colorful shapes, like animal silhouettes and even architectural pyramids. Take a look at designer Eva Fehren if you want beautifully constructed studs with a tough edge, or if you’d rather wear something fun like an elephant or flower, check out Tory Burch and Kate Spade. For maximum bling, Dannijo makes exotic studs out of Swarovski crystals that are swoon-worthy.
Want to scale up and get something much bigger than a pair of studs? Start by looking at hoops. They can be small and delicate or oversized door-knockers, and they vary in thickness as well. Choose between gold, silver or even pave-encrusted round hoops, or go for something truly statement-making, like a bamboo-style.
Ear cuffs and cartilage earrings are a big trend too. The best part is that you don’t actually need a cartilage piercing to take advantage of this look. Shop for an ear cuff that clips over your ear, or if you do have a piercing, explore dangling single earrings.
