Earrings are one of the easiest types of accessories to wear. Most women shy away from big, funky jewelry because they’re afraid to drawing too much attention to themselves, but earrings appeal to women of all shapes, sizes, ages and styles. Anyone can pull off a pair of earrings, whether big or small. You can choose small diamond studs if you’re conservative, and rock large hot pink feather earrings a la Gwyneth Paltrow if you’re looking to stand out in the crowd.
No matter which earrings you choose, you’re sure to end up with a pair that complements your look and your outfit. Earrings are never overly ostentatious, and unlike bracelets, they don’t get in the way of you doing your work. Choosing earrings that are hip but still casual can be a tough order of business. You’re looking for earrings that aren’t too buttoned up (you don’t necessarily want something that your mom would wear), but you also don’t want to look too crazy.
How do you find a pair of earrings that strike that perfect balance, hip enough to look like you pay attention to trends but also casual enough to go from the office to a dinner at your favorite Mexican restaurant to a night out dancing with the girls? This article is here to help you make the right choice when it comes to choosing earrings that are hip, yet casual.
Sometimes, simple is best – like when you’re looking for basic diamond studs. But sometimes, you want simple with a little bit of extra oomph. Enter a pair of triple strand hoop earrings in rose gold. Hoops are a basic earring shape, and hence, perfectly fit the “hip yet casual” mold. That being said, the added bonus of rose gold (a beautiful pinky gold that’s way more exciting than basic and boring gold or silver), and the triple strands elevate these earrings to seriously fashionable. They’re basic enough for a white t-shirt and jeans, but they’d look just as good with a little black dress out on the town. A great purchase, as you can easily rationalize the price by thinking about how often you’ll be able to wear them – with just about anything!
Speaking of hoops, colorful gemstone hoops are also a great hip yet casual option. Hoops are by nature quite casual – the larger they are, the more casual they get. But sometimes it’s fun to trade in the gold and silver for a bit of color. Gemstones are very in vogue right now, so why not meld the two trends together and snag a pair of gemstone hoops? Colorful and playful, these hip earrings are crafted in sterling silver and feature 20 round brilliant cut gemstones in a vibrant turquoise hue. They’d look gorgeous against tanned skin, and even better with a long white maxi dress.
If studs are more your style, you can still rock something fashionable. There’s no need to keep it simple with diamond studs when you can don beautiful and colorful flower stud earrings that are made from multi-colored gemstones. These earrings reflect the light, drawing attention to your face, while still being casual enough to wear out on a day of running errands. They can easily go from day to night, depending on the hairstyle they’re paired with, and they’re great for the office or for a day at home. Crafted in your choice of platinum or yellow vermeil over sterling silver, each earring boasts one pear cut apatite, one pear cut African amethyst, one pear cut citrine, one pear cut fire opal, a pink rhodolite, a peridot, a garnet and a tanzanite. You’ve got the entire range of gemstones in each ear!
If you’re looking for serious rockstar status, you’re going to love a pair of 14 karat mocha diamond hoop earrings. These small hoops offer some serious bling, but they’re small enough to not seem over the top and, hence, they’re still casual enough to wear to the office or out to dinner. That being said, they’d never seem out of the place at a dance club or a black tie affair. Crafted from rhodium plated 14 karat yellow gold, each earring boasts 150 single round cut mocha diamonds, each in a prong setting. Talk about class!
If simple really is what you’re looking for, step out of your comfort zone just a tiny bit with a pair of twisted gold earrings. They’re classic and casual, but their cool twisted shape and bright shining gold finish makes for a seriously hip pair of earrings. They’re perfect for a little black dress but also great for a jeans and tee sort of day. No matter what you wear them with, you’ll look like the girl who epitomizes a hip but casual fashionista.
