A LOBE AFFAIR

With their high visibility and proximity to the face, earrings have the power to define someone’s style in an instant. And it makes no more sense to wear a nondescript pair of earrings than to place a prized painting in a shabby frame. The standout designs of the moment have a blithe, bohemian spirit, are bathed in glittering gold or feature colorful gemstone drops. — TANYA DUKES

LAURIE LANGDON / Elisa Ilana

NAME THE EARRING STYLE THAT’S POISED TO BECOME A MAJOR TREND. I am seeing interest in a larger chandelier earring, with lots of movement and layers, including color. There is also another trend emerging. I’m not sure it has teeth yet: the ear climber.


GOLD RUSH

➤ Gold earrings are indispensible in any jewelry collection, but the variety that’s on the rise has a sense of outright glamour that can’t be ignored. It’s time to sideline pieces that blend into the scenery for bolder options that don’t hide their shine.

NAME THE NEXT EARRING STYLE THAT’S POISED TO BECOME A MAJOR TREND. Long dainty earrings! They are simple, classic and elegant and they are going to be a huge trend in the coming months. They’re my go-to because I can wear them with anything — from my fashionable jeans and T-shirt by day to my black dress at night. You really can’t go wrong.
