There is a very famous statement that diamonds are a girls best friend. Personally, I think it is concealer. But I will admit that diamonds are a very close second. Could pearls also be a contender? I think a good piece of classic jewelry is the perfect finish for any outfit. For me, typically that means a solid earring. The hardest question I ask myself in the morning is: pearls or diamonds? Both of mine are fake studs that I got at Claire’s. I tend to lean towards Claire’s because I can get multiple pairs of earrings for very little and they have a sensitive ears line so I know they won’t irritate my ears. But if you want a bit of a higher quality (or the real thing) you can get a good pair at a department store
Depending on what I am wearing helps me make a decision on which to wear. You don’t necessarily need a big necklace, ring, bracelet, and pair of earrings every single day to complete your outfit. A nice simple pair of realistic sized stud earrings is plenty to polish off your look. For example, if I were to wear a white button down, a nice pair of jeans, and some wedged booties, a pair of diamond studs helps make the outfit look complete while simultaneously keeping it casual. While if I were to wear a striped tshirt, a pair of jeans, simple ballet flats, and my hair in a low ponytail, pearls are more likely. It helps class us the simple everyday outfit so it didn’t look like I got dressed while running out the door. A nice rule of thumb I keep for myself is if the outfit is a little bit nicer, go with the diamond studs, and if its slightly more casual, pearls.
So instead of buying a pair of super cute earrings in every different metallic finish and color in the world, consider investing (or if you’re me and lose earrings often, stocking up on inexpensive) in a good pair of diamond and pearl studs for everyday wear. Then, you don’t have to go around spending money on earrings just to have a different pair to go with every outfit in your wardrobe.
