Accessories that complement and match are so passe! Asymmetrical earrings fit within fashion’s current fascination for bold mashups and ugly chic. Let’s face it, bizarre and outlandish combinations are clearly having their moment.
Fashion has always sought to reinvent, a penchant that has brought back everything from the 60’s block heel, to sequins of the disco era. Asymmetrical earrings are on a similar trajectory, embellishing both runways and the high street.
Mixing earrings has become a phenomenon and you know that when Solange Knowles rocks the look, it is definitely hot! No longer the prerogative of fashion forward disruptors like Jacquemus, historic houses like Dior and Oscar de la Renta have also brought out their own collections.
In the age of selfies, nothing makes for a better cutting-edge portrait than the asymmetrical earring shot:
You can go for radically different earrings like this pair from Dior with different coloured stones and design, or Ellery’s completely mismatched hoops:
Perhaps these earrings with a single piece and one with added adornments, extending the basic design, is more your style?
You can also wear earrings of the same design that come in varied sizes like these by Rodarte. Or choose a pair like the one by Alighieri that seem to fit like jigsaw pieces.
Take the minimalist route with a single statement piece, or a tiny stud that contrasts perfectly with their flashy cousin.
End of the month financial woes setting you back in your trendsetting goals? A sure way to not break the bank would be to reimagine the many earrings in your jewelry collection that are bereft of their partner. That lone ranger solo dangler could well be the answer!
