Shopping Bag: Earrings

Pernille Teisbaek in Gucci loafers, Proenza Schouler tights. Is #eargame a thing?

One night - in a moment of either insane boredom or uncharacteristic rebellion - I found myself in my bathroom, about to pierce my own ear. Being only 15, I had never pierced anything before, but with having seen Parent Trap a handful of times, I felt a sassy young Lindsey Lohan had equipped me with the right amount of how-to. I decided on my top right cartilage, and after a stern personal pep-talk and one swift poke it was done. I walked out of that moment with not only a brand new piece of ear candy, but an entirely new aire of cool. Why am I telling you all of this? Because the ear has quickly become the new accessory frontier, completely changing both the outfit and the attitude. Cool is just what these next-gen earrings are.

Though earrings are still seen as a classic staple accessory, the #eargame of 2016 couldn't be stronger. Whether you prefer the dainty or the exaggerated, bohemian or edgy; there is a perfect set for you. Just remember that the new rule = there are no rules. Mismatched, hoops, door-knockers, chains, cuffs, sets, and studs - choosing which to sport and how to layer them can get pretty overwhelming. To ease the stress, here are some runway and street approved trends that will definitely take your lewk to the next level.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
