Accessories have always been used to elevate one’s look. Dress looking a little plain? — cinched it with a belt. Decollete feels bare? — put a necklace on it. And like many other accessories, including hair clips that are trending this season, earrings too come in a wide range that you can literally get a pair for every single occasion.

Hence, you shouldn’t limit yourself to just simple stud earrings or sparky dangling ones. These are the ones that lean towards classier and timeless designs but now it’s time to step it up a tiny notch. But is there such a thing as pieces that are too extravagant, loud and bold? — yes and no.

It’s all about balance when it comes to looking for one that is both suitable for day and night. Consider going for one bold colour instead of a multi-coloured one that will attract too much of the attention. Long, dangling ones are gorgeous but limit its size to just slightly above the shoulder instead. Perhaps day and night earrings would do the trick — that one design separated into two pieces or parts. The top part would usually be a more modest design which is meant for work while the detachable bottom piece transforms the entire look to a more glamourous or bold one for the night.
