You heard it here first — we’re still into earrings. Not just statement earrings, though — earrings of all shapes, colours and sizes. Earrings for one ear. Earrings for more than just your earlobe.
Whatever your style, whatever your budget, Rebecca Tay presents five of the best earrings in stores right now.
GIRL WITH A …
Every accessory wardrobe needs a pair of pearl earrings. Yes, they’re currently very on trend, but they’re also perennially chic. Team with everything from a white button-down shirt for day to a navy jumpsuit for evening.

HOLD ONTO SUMMER
There’s no denying that SS19 was all about seashells, and if you can’t quite believe it’s over — or just aren’t ready to let it go — consider getting these gold-plated and pearl clip-on earrings by Mercedes Salazar. Inspired by her native Colombia, they’re the perfect way to keep the vacation spirit alive for a little bit longer.

OFF THE CUFF
If you’re well versed in the world of earrings, chances are your earlobes could probably use a bit of a break. But rather than give up on ear jewelry altogether, opt for a fancy, single ear cuff such as this aptly named ‘Hollywood Tears’ style by Parisian brand Chabaux. Fancy stuff indeed.

MISMATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
There’s no such thing as rules in fashion anymore — red goes perfectly with pink, navy goes with black, and your earrings can definitely be two different colours. We’re loving this stone drop pair by Paris-based Florentine designer Marco Panconesi, whose new, eponymous brand is already making serious waves among the fashion set.

You’ve likely seen evil eye motifs before, but if not, they’re popular in Mediterranean and western Asian countries and are generally believed to ward off the ‘evil eye’ — any stare believed to cause harm. And even if you don’t believe the superstition, there’s not much to dislike about this pair of gold-plated studs by Tai Jewelry.
