Though we often discuss clothing here on GWC, it’s just as important to build an accessories collection that withstands the changing trends. Earrings, in particular, are my favorite way to top off an outfit, as they are one of the first things people see since they’re near your face. You can instantly change the vibe of your entire look with a pair of earrings. And they don’t take up much space, so you can add as many as you want to your collection and never fill your closet!

There are a lot of styles out there to choose from, so today I’m sharing four of my must-haves. Like my favorite wardrobe pieces, these are classic with a modern twist: You can wear them now and be on-trend, yet they’ll never go out of style.

The Pearl

If you like the look of single pearl earrings but feel they’re a bit too stuffy, the double pearl is a modern take that has just enough edge to make it feel young and on-trend. I love wearing mine with everything from casual outfits to dressier looks.

The Statement

If you want to instantly up the “wow” factor of any outfit, throw on some statement earrings! They can take even the simplest jeans-and-tee combo to the next level. To choose a pair you won’t get tired of by next season, look for interesting shapes in trendy styles – like tiered drops or tassels – in bold colors you can pair with neutral basics.

The Stud

If you want an understated style you can wear with everything, make the everyday stud your go-to. It’s a simple, classic way to add a little bit of polish to your outfit without distracting from it. My favorites are simple gold studs that go with pretty much any look. Bonus: They’re small and fit snugly to your earlobe, so you don’t have to worry about them getting caught on things or being pulled on by your kiddos.
