How to Layer Earrings (and how not to!)

I’m warming up to the multiple earrings trend, are you? It took me a minute to get used to ear Huggies and smaller, delicate earrings because I so often wear larger statement earrings, but I’ve found that layering a few favorites still gives you a statement earring look!

When it comes to wearing a few earrings in each ear, I typically try to work from biggest to smallest as I work up the ear.That’s How to Layer Earrings (and how not to!)

The largest or longest earring goes in the first hole, closest to my face, and the earrings get smaller or I use studs to fill in the second and third holes in my ear. Sometimes, though, I skip the third hole altogether.

This has been my favorite combination lately:

First earring (similar), Second earring (similar)

When I wear a longer earring in the first hole, I typically reach for a stud to go next to it as you can see below.

First earring, Second earring

If the first earring is very simple, I like to pair a more statement earring in the second hole, like an ear crawler.

When mixing and matching earrings together, I typically avoid anything with tassels or a statement earring that is larger than about 1.5 inches. I also never wear large studs in the second hole. Pictured below is an example of what not to do! See how sad I am?
