As much as we love teaming up vastly different and significantly contrasting ear pieces together, the art of pairing mismatched earrings is an acquired skill. If done right, you can be the coolest chick at any soiree. But you cannot throw two random earrings together, and try to make it work. To put it simply, both the pieces should be different in not more than two ways; you cannot pair a diamond stud with a tassle dangler, since they don’t gel at all. We know it might sound like a lot of hassle. Here’s some mismatched earring inspiration for you.
Gwyneth Deserves Better
Whoever Gwyneth Paltrow’s stylist is, needs a quick brush-up on the rules of the mismatched jewellery trend. A petite diamond stud with an exquisitely crafted diamond dangler is a no-no. To be safe, do not try studs or mini ear tops as part of the trend; mainly because they are hardly visible, and also rarely ever look good when paired with a dangler or a chandelier.
Janelle Gets It
Janelle Monae has obviously got the right memo, when it comes to teaming up a pair of mismatched ear pieces. At this year’s Grammys, Janelle sported a gold chain link dangler, and a drop-style gold piece, featuring metallic link detailing. Notice how she sticks to a colour scheme and only plays with the texture and length.
If you want to team up two pieces of toned down earrings, featuring the same accents, take a cue from Kaia Gerber’s look. She wears a simple pearl and gemstone dangler with a hoop Chanel stud, but they go together exceptionally well.
Pairing up two almost similar pieces is a sneaky way to sport the trend. Notice how these two statement danglers are almost alike, and the differences are only visible upon closer observation
We’re obsessed with this pair of vintage Cavalli mismatched hoops. If you’re looking for a boho vibe in your look, this pair would be a fantastic addition.
