How to Stack Earrings: All About the #EarParty
How to Wear Multiple Earrings
1) Grab Micro Studs
For an on point fashion look, opt for tiny earrings. Choose smaller studs that give you enough room between your numerous ear piercings, making your stacked earrings look a lot more aesthetically pleasing.
Comfort is key or you'll never wear it. Again, the best option is to look for very small stud earrings, which are easily worn all day, every day. These dainty beauties are so light in weight that you will forget you even have them on.
2) Curated Piercings
Perfect ear piercing placement is essential. Don't make the mistake of getting a row of stacked piercings that are closely packed together then accenting them with oversized studs that completely cover the curve of the ear. Part of creating a beautiful design is to play with negative space. An overly cluttered ear never looks beautiful.
3) Play it by Ear
Consider your ear shape because not every ear has enough space to house multiple lobe piercings or the correct cartilage contour for an inner ear piercing. What type of ear piercings and earrings will look good on you depends largely on your ear anatomy.
4) Throw in a Huggie
Huggies are tiny hoops studs that wrap around your ear. Best of all, huggie earrings play well with other earrings. They look amazing worn on their own, but they're still super flexible when wearing with a lot of other earrings. They are perfect for placing higher up the helix of the ear for a trés cool look.
5) Choose a Favorite
While stacking doesn’t necessarily have any limits, choosing a favorite piece of jewelry and then creating a story around it is the secret to a winning stack.
6) Mix Dainty+Statement
As if having multiple piercings isn't badass enough, throw in an unexpected statement piece. When it comes to lobe earrings, sometimes more is more. A large hoop earring is perfect for your first ear-piercing, then stack them up with subtle partners like smaller studs or even a huggie.
Add more, but keep it equal in measure. Offset bigger earrings with smaller styles to keep the ear uncluttered
7) Stay in Your Lane
Upgrade your earring stack with pieces that share a common element, such as the same metal, gemstone or shape. This is pretty essential to good ear stacking. For example, we love an ear lined with hoops in different sizes and textures.
8) Dangle On
For more intrigue, add a dangling pair of waterfall earrings. Dangling earrings look best when worn in your first lobe piercing, so you can compliment them with studs and hoops in your other piercings. In addition to this, the longer your cascading earrings are, the more intense your stacked earring look will be.
What are the best hoop earrings for multiple piercings? When layering earrings, small hollow hoops are best or else the weight of the earrings might feel too heavy against your lobe.
9) How to Wear Earrings Without Piercings
No piercing, no problem, Adjustable ear cuffs are game changers for your innocent, curated ear. Not only do non-pierced cuffs encourage you to get super artsy with your ear décor, but they’re an awesome way to showcase this cool trend without committing to an ear piercing bender. Yeah, piercings hurt and commitment is scary
Mix it up with simple ear cuffs, ear crawlers, magnetic studs and clip-on styles for an adorable faux earring stack.
10) Bling it Out
What's better than beautiful curated ear jewelry dripping in sparkle? Nada. Take your ears to dazzling heights by customizing your stack with charming additions like small sparkly stud earrings, dazzling hoop earrings with charms in all shapes, sizes & luminous colors.
Added bonus, these blinged-out party earrings are always soirée ready.
11) How to Wear Bar Earrings
Have your plan ready before you start, a curated ear requires a lot of ear mapping. Try the minimalist approach with thin gold or silver dashes layered on top of each other. A row of glittering bar stud earrings in ascending or descending order makes your curated ear look neat and elegant.
12) Don't Match Too Much
Mix and match your studs from one ear to the other or even add a threader earring alongside your studs to mismatch and add some asymmetry. Remember, stacking your ear is all about mixing and matching different parts of the ear whilst creating an overall cohesive look.
13) How to Wear Multiple Hoop Earrings
Wearing just one hoop in your earlobe is very predictable, but if you can master multiple hoop earrings, you will be able to create so many different looks.
Step 1: Start with a Bold Hoop
The first piece you put on should be a statement piece. This anchors your stack and will determine the other styles chosen to enhance your ear lobe.
Step 2: Add texture
Complement your statement hoop with a matching style in a textured finish.
Step 3: Add Mini Statement Pieces
Create a stepped effect with a miniature versions of your statement piece. This way, your earring stack will follow the natural curve of your lobe thus creating a consistent look. If you decided on hoops for your earring stack, it’s easy to find additional pieces to complement it, as hoops come in every imaginable size, weight and style.
Step 4: Did we mention the sparkles? ☆✨
You can’t go wrong with small stud diamond earrings, as this is a versatile style that works well with any wardrobe.
Hey, its art for your ear lobe. A carefully and beautifully done ear stack is now the accessory du jour. When it comes to building an adorable earring stack style there really is no right or wrong way. Your look should always resonate with your personal aesthetic, whether it follows certain fashion laws or not. If you love it then it's great! Be bold, be you and break some rules.
