Each week I’ll be highlighting three of the best items that have caught my eye to help brighten, sharpen or simply inspire you to elevate your workwear style.
This week I will be looking at earrings by three different designers. I like eye-catching pieces and preferably the bigger and bolder; the better! And while I like to have fun with them on the weekend, I think it’s also important to tailor the earrings to the work context, particularly in jobs that may be client-facing. So I have some brighter styles which I save for Casual Friday (think simple-but-smart tee and jeans elevated with some bling) and some more subtle-but-still-bold styles which I mix in with simple tops for contrast. On more conservative days I’ll opt for the most simple of large metal earrings paired again with simple tops or a white shirt.
Now that you know how I like to style my earrings for work, here’s a look at some new styles from three designers that have zoomed to the top of my wishlist!
Three of the best earring styles out now
Bride & Wolfe for gorman
Bride & Wolfe are known for bringing fun to homewares (you may have seen their original shelves or iconic art mirrors) which marries perfectly with the colourful philosophy of Gorman. There are four styles in the collection which have been handmade out of acrylic by Bride & Wolfe which means they are light as they are stunning.
Each to Own
On my wedding day I wore a bright pair of gold confetti earrings from Each to Own, a gorgeous Brisbane-based label that dazzles season after season. The newest collection “Sugar Town” (pictured) is on the cusp of being released and I’m looking forward to adding a pair to my Smart Casual arsenal! I do already own a pair of the Night Totem Laser Drops which are subtle-but-still-bold and perfect for regular work days.
Holly Ryan x The Undone
If you work in a very conservative environment, then consider NZ designer Holly Ryan as your go-to for a minimalist/maximalist pair of earrings. There is no denying that Holly Ryan is a serious player in the minimalist chic market, perhaps best-known for her squiggle and wavee-styles, the designer has now collaborated with The Undone creating a collection of styles that will add boldness to the simple tops and white shirts that are staples of many a chic wardrobe.
I am a huge fan of earrings so this may well have to be come a recurring feature in itself – do let me know if you come across styles BusiChics need to know about!
