Minimalism has been the reigning star of the jewelry category over the past few years. Simple silver midi rings, dainty gold ear piercings, bar necklaces... you know the deal.
I totally bought into the trend -- it works incredibly well against the understated Everlane sweatshirt I've worn basically every day for the last year. But recently I've been pining for additions to my closet that are a little wacky and pure, sugary fun, because outfit restraint can be really exhausting in the long term. That's how I recently came home from Topshop one day with a sweatshirt covered in bats and some purple socks patterned with pink doughnuts.
I love these little mismatched studs because they're charming and a little juvenile in a way that's completely unobtrusive -- a good way to accessorize an otherwise neutral outfit. And they gel so nicely with all those delicate little gold piercings you and I and every girl below 14th Street has been walking around with, no?
