Mismatched earrings seem to be the latest craze to hit the the scene. We’ve been seeing more and more of this trend on the streets, music videos and award shows rocked by the likes of Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Ashanti, Alicia Keys, and Brooke Jasmyn!
Brooke Jasymne, of BET’s reality show Harlem Heights, was actually one of the first we observed to rock this trend. This chick just excudes an effortless personal style, edgy and classy, but what’s interesting is that she actually fell upon this trend by accident. After messaging her for some details, she replied with:
“I have been doing mixed matched earrings for years not even trying to set a trend (I just lose em all the time and had 1 of each laying around…also my left ear began to split and so I just started wearing studs in that ear to let it breathe and ut all my heavy earrings in my right ear…I pierced my left ear 3 more times for style and limited my right ear to the single piercing Ive had since birth so people stopped saying ‘i think you dropped one of your earrings” *ouch!*
Ahhh to be beautiful and so cool! Thanks Brooke! =)

Our recessoin-friendly option is…to do it yourself! Mismatching earrings is a great way to recycle those misplaced studs and hoops of the past. The best combo’s are the hoop + stud or the long dangling chain + small hoop or stud. Incorporating feathers is also a lovely accent. Try this trend this weekend and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of compliments!!!
