Have you ever met someone who always looks effortlessly chic and put together? I know I have, and what I’ve noticed is that they’ve given thought not only to their outfit, but to their accessories. Today I’m sharing 4 essential earrings you should have in your arsenal for looking effortlessly chic. Of course, you can have more (my love of earrings goes WAAAY back-scroll down below), but you really only need these 4 pairs to pull off that polished, always “put together” look. This is the first in this series. I’ll be sharing bracelets, necklaces, etc., soon so be sure to stay tuned. Let’s dive in.
1. Gold Hoops
Gold hoops go with absolutely everything. I wear mine casually and for dressier occasions and they always look chic. My favorite pair is old so I’ve linked another similar pair below. I strongly advise looking for gold hoop earrings that are “gold fill” vs. “gold plated.” I’ve had nice gold plated earrings have the color rub off in a matter of days. They’re a little pricier, but so worth it.

2. Silver Hoops
Silver hoops are perfect when your look has “cool” tones, think blues, purples, etc. I also like silver hoops when the hardware on my jacket or jeans is predominantly silver. I’ve never had silver plating rub off like gold, so I think you’re safe no matter what you purchase. Here are some great options:
3. “Diamond” Studs
You can never go wrong with a diamond stud. They are the epitome of effortlessly chic and go with EVERYTHING. If you have one pair of earrings, make it these. Mine are cubic zirconia, real would be nice someday, but I don’t think you can tell the different and they give the same look. Style them with baseball caps to evening gowns.
4. Fun, Funky, and Colorful Statement
The bulk of your earring arsenal should veer classic, but having one pair of statement earrings in a color that you tend to wear a lot is another must. I love blues/turquoises, so that’s where I veer most of the time. The turquoise earrings above are old Stella and Dot and the pink are old earrings from Target. I’ve linked two pairs below that have a similar feel to mine, but you should let your “inner freak flag” fly with these to really highlight your unique personality (see my circa 1989 clown earrings below 😛 ). I prefer something that dangles for these.
Do you have all of my 4 earrings essentials for looking effortlessly chic? What would you like to see in my “Essentials” series?
