In my last post for Accessories Access, I featured some super fancy drop earrings in red & blue, but time & time again, I love to share my obsession with stud earrings. Maybe it’s my long hair, the fact that I wear glasses, or love to accessorize my looks with hairclips or headbands, but I just don’t feel that for my style, oversized drop earrings are my thing.
However, I was surfing around on my iPhone’s apps, which included Forever 21 & I started browsing for jewelry, which is the inspiration for this latest post. The spring bloom cluster studs ($5.80) in cream/pink are dainty & delicate to match with a pastel sweater dress or to dress up a turtleneck with skinny jeans. For bow-lovers out there, the lacquered bow studs ($3.80) in black/gold are perfect for any office look, date night, or casual day with the girls. Also, I love the color combination in the multi-colored rhinestone studs ($2.80) in aqua/mint, which will pick up nicely for any floral jeans look with a striped top. Lately, I’ve been feeling a Parisian inspiration & just adore the Eiffel Tower studs ($3.80) in dark grey, which are also available in clear/antique gold.
In addition, I’m loving some of the vintage-inspired details on these studs, including the bejeweled faux stone earrings ($4.80) in mint/gold. I’m always a fan of daisies in unexpected ways, which is why I selected the flowered heart studs ($3.80) in black/clear & I’d wear these for virtually any occasion with other feminine shapes for my other ear piercings. The sparkling pearlescent flower studs ($3.80) in pink/gold contain the best of so many details including rhinestones for sparkle, pearls for that demure sophistication, & a lacquered surface for any contemporary look. Flowers & bows aren’t the only shapes getting jeweled attention these days, which is why I picked the trendy metallic pyramid studs ($3.80) in pink, which are also available in lavender/dark gray & clear/silver.
