Ears seem like very arbitrary, though necessary, body parts that allow us to hear and listen to others, but they're also a vehicle for ornament. At a young age, parents pierce the ears of their daughters and as these girls grow into a women, there are many other piercings that follow (sometimes). This year, ears happen to be one of the most popular of all body parts when it comes to jewellery. Putting your hair up has never seemed more appealing. In the past few months, I've taken a look at some of the top ear trends of the moment and I must admit, there are many. While some would prefer a more subtle look, others are eager to opt for blingy ear cuffs that make a statement. Curious to know what you can do with your ears this season? Check out my top five favourite ear accessories of the moment.
NUMBER 1: The Ear Cuff
This ultra blingy accessory sparked an interest two years back at the Met Ball themed Punk: Chaos to Couture. Stars like Cara Delevingne and Sienna Miller rocked this look like the rockstars that they are and everyone wanted to be cool enough to wear one. While sparkle isn't necessary, it is encouraged for this particular look. After all, it started on the Red Carpet.
NUMBER 2: Front and Back Pearls
Emma Watson wore this Dior look to the Golden Globes back in 2014 and a year later, we're all dying to own a pair. Everywhere you turn, one of these front and back pearl earrings are trending. Though the giant ball in the back may seem awkward at first, seeing it on Emma makes us feel ultra chic and modern doing it. It just goes to show that if you're Emma Watson, you can definitely make fetch happen.
NUMBER 3: One Earring
Looking for an earring trend? All you have to do is keep your eyes out for Emma Watson and her bold ear candy choices. A single long earring may appear imbalanced and possibly a cause of lack of sleep, but in this case, it's intentional. Perhaps its intentionality is precisely what makes it so cool and defiant. Asymmetry has never been so hot.
NUMBER 4: The Ear Climber
This one is kind of like the ear cuff's overshadowed sister. She's just as a bold, but slightly less dramatic. For the woman looking for something unique without drawing as much attention, an ear climber is the latest chic look to decorate the ear. Bonus? You can wear this one every day.
NUMBER 5: The Ear Jacket
This one is called the ear jacket. Why, you ask? Nobody truly knows. The one thing I do know it that it looks incredibly cool, unique, and edgy. Could this be the latest rising trend in ear wear?
