Earring Stacks: Upsize Your Look without Upsizing the Price
Fashion is one of the most outward ways an individual can express themselves daily. From our choice of shoes to the accessories on the tops of our heads, every decision we make can make a statement. And one of the newest trends in the world of jewelry is allowing us to kick our style up a notch with just a few simple pieces.
Wardrobe hacks are an excellent way to stretch your clothing budget, but earring stacks are an easy way to level up your accessories without breaking the bank. Let’s take a peek at what an earring stack is, learn how to make one, and check out some different ways to style them before you dive into doing it yourself!
What Is an “Earring Stack?”
An earring stack is a new trend catching on amongst many fashion-forward individuals. It starts on the ear and, whether you have piercings or not, is a way to show off your favorite hoops, hugs, dangles, and studs.
This look is all about mixing, matching, combining, and pairing your fav earrings in one look (or “stack”). Basically, that’s all you’re doing—stacking your ear with style!
Here’s how it works: use various earrings to create a brand new look across all your piercings in one ear. Match the other side to create symmetry or show off your personality with a mismatched but mesmerizing creation. There are infinite ways to dress your ears with this fun trend, which is why we’re encouraging you to experiment at home.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of available accessories, styling can get a bit pricey if you go overboard. So consider mixing expensive pieces like your best diamond studs with a funky button earring from Etsy. Affordable earrings are a lot like affordable watches—there are plenty of high-quality offerings out there, and if you wear them with confidence, no one will know the difference.
There aren’t many rules when it comes to stacking and styling—except to have fun and avoid blowing your budget on something that doesn’t need the splurge.
How to Style an Earring Stack?
As we mentioned previously, there are many ways to style your earring stack and so many different choices in terms of what you include. You can go more modern with sleek picks or more bohemian with some dangles paired with hoops.
Whatever your vision, you can almost certainly make it happen with more ease than you realize. In the meantime, let’s break down some different features you can include in your earring stack creation.
Studs are staples. They are the foundation of many accessory collections and are one of the most versatile earring types. Classic and timeless, you can stack your entire ears with studs and look downright chic. They also pair nicely with other earrings and can do you well in terms of stacking symmetrically.
Add a bit of femininity and flair to your stick by adding in a dangle earring or two. This is a great way to dress up your creation, add a focal point to your stack, or work in some fun colors as well.
Hoops & Hugs
The real MVP of a brilliant stack can be the hoop or the hug. A stack full of these bad boys looks terrific, but they also round off a stack with other types of earrings nicely. And they can work for practically any style you prefer—from classic to boho to modern.
