Ear Candy

main-1.originalThere’s nothing particularly new about ear cuffs. There were quite a few knocking around at last year’s punk themed Met Gala, not to mention a whole host at the last few fashion weeks – and then a little further back in the 90s when I was rocking one with a grand dad top, a pair of diesel jeans and perhaps even a pair of Caterpillar boots (I swear they were cool then). But, almost 20 years later the time feels right for me to wear one again. It suits my age, my style and my taste. If you’re too chicken to pierce (or in my case repierce) the cartilage at the top of your ear, then an ear cuff is the way to go.  While designs by Sophie Bille Brahe and Repossi (pictured above) are the dream buys, there are more affordable choices out there. Here’s our pick of the best…

Ear cuffs are the easy (and safe) way to add edge to an outfit. Wear on one side as a single, cluster them together or go for a whopper if you want to make more of a statement.

They may not be ear cuffs, but I’m seriously in love with these spiderweb earrings by Charlotte Olympia. I’m usually quite a big earring or no-earring girl, but for these, I would definitely make an exception (and particularly perfect for a very chic Halloween, no?)
