There’s an awful lot to be said in favour of a simple pair of stud earrings. These jewellery box workhorses can be worn every day and go with all styles of outfits. They’re great as subtle workplace sparkle, perfect for laid back glam, and work wonderfully at more formal occasions to add a bit of Audrey Hepburn-esque elegance to your look.
On the hunt for the perfect pair of sophisticated yet simple stud earrings? We love these Claudia Bradbury White Pearl Manhattan Stud Earrings (pictured above). For a less traditional look, you might like to take a look at these Elizabeth Chamberlain Wrap Oxidised Stud Earrings, or Collette Waudby’s Silver Mavilo Leaf Stud Earrings.
And now for the outfit inspiration! Here are three ways to wear a pair of simple studs with style.
Look one: Monochrome professional
Black and white doesn't have to be boring! Pair some sophisticated studs with an all black and white look for a put together professional look. This outfit would work particularly well with an up do: making it even more of a perfect opportunity for pretty stud earrings.
Look two: Low key summer evening
Work low maintenance glam on a summer evening with dressed up denim. Simple studs will keep this look polished but fuss free. For best results wear with a delicate pendant, or perhaps even a bare neck.
Look three: Floral wedding guest
A fancy frock doesn’t always need to be paired with statement earrings. Sometimes a dressier outfit works best with simple stud earrings. This is particularly true if you are attending an event where headwear is called for! Simple studs work perfectly with hats and fascinators without fighting for attention.
