Simple, Chic Studs!

When it comes to earrings, I'm definitely a hoops girl. However, recently I've jumped ship and traded my classic gold and silver circles for small, sparkly studs. We all know that studs are the go-to style for professional settings and special events, but now I've embraced them for everyday wear too! Hoops will always have a place in my jewelry box, but it's fun to switch up styles from time to time. From sterling silver balls to diamond squares, studs exude a simple, ladylike elegance that never go unnoticed.

What's your favorite style of earrings? Hoops, studs or drops? Please share:

Be still my heart! BGG, anyone who knows me knows I love a big beautiful hoop earring, however, I also love a beautiful blingy studd too. My selection for the day depends on a few things like my mood, my destination and the message I'm sending when I get there! Nothing says sexy like a hoop and nothing says classy like a stud. Hey, I have two holes so even when I'm wearing my big beautiful hoops, I never remove my diamond studs. It's official, I'm every woman!

this reminds me that i need to get some real jewelry and stop wearing stuff from claires and forever21.

Gosh, I haven't worn studs in forever. Because my hair has been short for years, I usually rock huuuuuge earrings. I love studs for classy events though.

I probably only wear studs at weddings. I love hoops and big earrings in general. They match my fro nicely.

I'm a hoops girl all the way! I feel like I am too much of a presence (not even sure what I mean by that) for dainty studs. My earrings need to be seen, so I rock hoops. I do wear a stud in the second hole on my right ear.

They're lovely. Personally I only wear silver or gold silver so I do like the white gold set.

I love studs. I wear 2 pairs (a pair for each set of holes) of diamonds studs almost everyday. Every once in a while, I may change the diamonds for another type of stud. I hardly ever wear hoops.

I love hoops and dangling earrings for the weekends, but studs are my standard for work. Simple diamonds or pearls communicate class and elegance every time.

LOL @ Antithesis - Those earrings from Claire's and Forever 21 do serve their purpose. I remember once I left my real diamond earrings at home for an interview so I stopped and Claire's and grabbed a similar pair for $5! Instant elegance and professionalism!

MeMe said...

I don't wear earrings. But if I did, I would wear those pearls.
