Wanna (Ear) Party?

When it comes to jewellery, I am definitely not one to go by the idea that "less is more." Anyone who knows me will tell you that I like to just pile it all on - bracelets, rings and more recently, even earrings. Who would have ever thought dressing up your ears could be this fun? Studs, hoops, ear jackets, crawlers and even ear cuffs - the possibilities are endless, but just in case you need a little bit of inspiration when it comes to creating your own ear parties, I have snapped a few of my go-to combinations, as well as compiled some of my best tips and tricks to get the look. 


Tip n°1 : Forget everything I just said, sometimes, less can be more... Assuming this version of minimalism comes in the shape of a cool ear climber, such as this snake pavé little number by one of my all-time favourite jewellery brands, Shashi. I first discovered them on Shopbop last year and I have been obsessed ever since. The latest addition to my ever-growing collection? This evil eye cuff bracelet, which the lovely people at Shashi kindly gifted me along with a few more goodies you can see in this post. Thanks, Shashi! 


Tip n°2 : Ear jackets have been everywhere in the past few years, but don't feel like you can't mix and match them with your favourite earrings. Here, I'm wearing a turquoise teardrop stud earring from JewelleryBox.co.uk with my Stella & Dot Pavé Triangle Ear Jacket. Rules were meant to be broken, right?


Tip n° 3 : If like me, you don't like to go too matchy-matchy with your ear parties, split a pair of earrings with a friend to get more bang for your buck. 


Tip n°4 : If you like the look of a cartilage piercing, but you don't want to take the plunge, ear cuffs are your best friends. You can find them anywhere these days, but my favourite ones are from iPrecious Creations on Etsy. Konstantinos makes everything by hand and with such attention to detail, it is definitely not something you'll find on the high street. If you like beautifully made jewelry and supporting smaller businesses, this is one for you. 


Tip n° 5 : Mixing a statement piece with smaller, daintier earrings like these small hoops from JewelleryBox.co.uk, is a great way to rock an ear party even in the most conservative of settings, like work for example. Luckily for me, fashion offices are very laid-back, but I still like to do this when my outfit is already pretty loud and I want to let the clothes do the talking.


Tip n° 6 : Have fun with it! And don't forget to send me pictures of your own ear parties on Twitter or Instagram at @ElleYeah. I'd love to see them! 

Here you can shop the look, as well as a few extras which I have been eyeing up lately :









What's your favourite way to accessorise? Do you also like to pile the jewellery on, or do you prefer to keep things a bit more simple?

  3. LOVe this post. I love the ear cuff, it looks like you have your conch pierced which I really want to get down. I also love the blue tear drop with the zigzags underneath.

  16. Oh I wish I hadn't let my 3 ear piercings heal over. I can just about manage to get one small set of studs in my ears which is pretty impressive after 13 years. I love the ear cuffs - Am I brave enough to go for more piercings?

    1. That is pretty impressive! I am not sure I'm brave enough either, so the cuffs will have to do for now. 😉 x

  21. Less is definitely more! Looking at those snake studs on their own, I'd never pick them up, but seeing them on your ear, they actually look pretty cute!

  22. I don't have my ears pierced but I love the look of the Pave Ear Cuffs. I have worn clip on earrings on the odd night out before but I'm definitely a less is more kind of girl when it comes to jewellery. I have two rings I wear without fail and depending on what I'm wearing I might chuck on a necklace, but it's not very often

  23. I love the range of earrings so pretty. I need to wear mine more often.

  26. I stopped having ear parties ages ago but after seeing your post I definitely need to start appreciating my holes again... I have six holes and my tragus pierced in one ear and four holes in the other! I can't even decide which ones I like the most as they are all so pretty xx
