When ear-cuffs earrings broke into the world of fashion last year, few girls were doing the statement look. Today, everyone’s jumping on the Ear-Cuff Trend one way or another through massive in your face pieces, or more subtle dainty ones. Talk about a great fashion gimmick that stuck big time.
Why? I think it has to do with the easiness of pulling off this trend, and why not the affordability of it. It looks so cool and funky, yet no piercing is required. No can’t-go-back fashion move. It’s brilliant.
Today I came across an online shop – EAR-CUFFS (click here to see) – packed with the most amazing ear-cuff earrings, and basically spent the entire morning scrolling and pinning and thinking which ones to get, and how I’d style them. Browsing through their collections, which are incredibly affordable, it hit me. In one year time, the ear cuff trend has nipped and tucked itself in such a way that today we’ve got whole stores of ear-bling to literally fit all styles, tastes, occasions, and pockets.
That’s the thing about ear-cuff earrings: they DO go anywhere, it all depends on the earring itself. They’re a subtle style statement, that can remain slightly hidden and dainty, or can be extravagant.
HOW TO WEAR EAR-CUFFS & GET THE CHIC LOOK?
1. Subtle Statement. You can style them with a crispy shirt for work, or opt for a very elegant dress with pumps for when you have to up your game for some important meeting in the office. Keep the rest simple, no necklaces, not extra razzmatazz, just a ring, if you will, is enough.
Pull your hair back for a full-vision of the ear-cuff, of do a side-part hairstyle, and tuck your hair behind your cuffed ear for a more subtle look. Ear-cuffs.co.uk have plenty of simple chic style to pick from. You will love them, I’m telling you. Ear-cuff that cover all the ear, in tiny crystals, or pearls, or even the thin animal styles in gold or silver that subtly wrap around your ear.

3. Evening elegance or edge. Ever since celebrities started wearing ear-cuff earrings on the red carpet, the idea of jewelry for evening has slightly changed. Yes you have to wear an elegant dress, and classy gown, a proper frock when you go to cocktails, weddings, or evening celebrations of sorts, BUT you can still look incredibly trendy and edgy with just a touch of accessories. Like the statement embellished glamorous ear-cuffs look fabulous with any type of dress for evening, or going out, with your hair sleeked back, tucked behind your ear, or pulled up in a messy bun, or ponytail. And that’s the only jewelry you need! 🙂

Don’t know about you, but I’m sold on this look. I have been from the very beginning, but never like lately, cause I just think it’s the most effortless look ever. Yeah it’s a bit extravagant, but subtle at the same time. It’s classy, but edgy. It’s simple, but sophisticated. It’s more, but it’s less.
