While earrings are generally sold in matching pairs, right now, it’s all about the asymmetrical earrings.

Mismatched earrings are a simple way to add a cool, unexpected element to any outfit. Whether you opt to mix metals, pair a stud with a dangle or create something totally your own, there’s really no wrong way to incorporate your favorite styles. Plus, mismatched earrings are also great for those with several piercings that don’t want all of their earrings to all match perfectly!
