Fashion Dare: Wear Your Earrings One (Yes, One!) At a Time

(Shopbop, Tibi)

Who'd have thought that one day, earrings would be sold solo instead of in pairs? Well, it's happening, and we're totally into the asymmetrical look.

It's completely versatile, too. You can wear one long bar, like this super luxe rose gold and diamond version Anita Ko designed for Tibi ($2,640 at


Or you can go minimal with this 14-karat ear-spanning style from Jennie Kwon ($120 at Leave the other ear bare, or fill in the opposite piercing with the simplest stud in your jewelry box. How cool would your mismatched earrings look with crisp summer whites and flat metallic sandals?

For a more subtle take on the style, try Gabriela Artigas's delicate tusks ($218 at They're perfect for mixing and matching, and even better on ladies with multiple ear piercings.

Mania Mania's single quartz stud ($68 at manages to be bohemian and modern.

While Conroy and Wilcox's solid gold safety pin ($275 at is a grown-up version of the tough-girl classic.

Catbird's emerald chain studs ($90 each at work well in cartilage piercings, or dangling from a second hole.


Or, cheat just a little bit and let someone else do the mis-matching for you, with Made Her Think's rose gold posts ($225 at
