It’s time to pick a side, since the fall single earring trend leaves only one lobe as champion. Rather than sporting the traditional two, the runways have lightened your accessory load by offering one well-dressed ear with an elongated, single stud dangler. While less is more may not be the message these statement earrings delivered at Louis Vuitton, Celine and Isabel Marant, both minimalists and maximalists can rejoice as there are infinite ways to embellish your earlobes using a solitary earring. Whether it’s a crystal-covered crucifix chain à la Tory Burch or a small, simple, shark tooth hoop from Isabel Marant, there’s something for every taste that delivers the same amount of impact.
We rounded up the seven best runway ways to wear this one-sided trend and the starlets who love the look.
Bonus: this trend is a win-win situation — now you have a sufficient excuse for holding onto that lone earring after losing its match or you can split the cost of a new set with a like-minded fashion friend.
