Rings N Things: Teardrop Earrings
Sure, it seems unlikely that “teardrop earrings” would be the stuff of Google search term legend, but that’s exactly what happened when Angelina Jolie wore an emerald pair with a black strapless dress and a bare neck to the Academy Awards back in 2009. Even last year’s Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence proved that timeless drop earrings have next-gen appeal when she accessorized her Dior gown with a diamond drop pair at the 2013 Oscars.
As fun as it likely is to wear millions of dollars dangling from your ears, nothing kills your moves on the dance floor quite like remembering that a sexy hair toss could lead to a hefty debt or insurance claim. Costume jewels have all the glamour of real gemstones, so you can dance the night away wearing a pair of Musettas with a black cocktail dress while channeling your inner Angelina or rocking a pair of Varzals while feeling J-La fabulous in a simple strapless gown.
And there’s no need to wait for cocktail hour to get decked out in look-at-me teardrop earrings. Winter 2013-14 is all about making costume jewelry casual chic. Invest in a pair of Adeisas or Petak earrings, and pair them effortlessly with a denim jacket, casual turtleneck and a messy ponytail. Consider taking the trend to the next level by mismatching a single Adeisa with a Petak or giving a nod to the runways of Dior by just wearing one bold teardrop for rock star-worthy asymmetry.
