On My Wish List: Minimalist Earrings

Hey, everyone! I was once known for rocking crazy earrings, I’m talking zippers, legos, puzzle pieces, paper clips and the like.  Although I don’t regret any of my past earring choices, I’m shifting towards plain, minimalist styles since my outfits are already usually so busy! Here are my top picks for minimalist earrings:


1. Cutout Geo Stud Set

  This set contains a pair of silver and gold cube earrings so it covers nearly all bases.  Oh yeah, and they’re $3.80. Can’t beat that.

2. Bar/Staple Earrings

These are basically the definition of minimalist; a straight line.  Doesn’t get any simpler than that!  Available in gold here.

3. Double Hoop Connector Earring

Now this is cool.  If you have a second hole (which I currently don’t, but I’m planning to change that very soon which I now have as of yesterday), this two in one earring is an easy, effortless way to rock two hoops.  Very elegant and no one would ever suspect that it’s only one earring!


4. Tiny Hoops

I know that some people might say that when it comes to hoops, go big or go home, but I’m actually a huge fan of the tiny hoop.  Tiny hoops are so adorable and can be extremely versatile if you have more than one type of piercing (nose, cartilage etc).

5. Letters

These letter earrings are a great way to add a more personal touch to any style! And, let’s be real here, who doesn’t love personalized things? They’re even more fun if you have more than one piercing; you can get creative with initials and words.  Available in gold here. Check out Mimic Design for more personalized jewelry.

6. Plain Circle Studs

This is a great set of earrings.  It’s not that easy to find circle shaped earrings that aren’t pearl or diamond-esque. Check out Virginia Wynne for loads more minimalist options.
