How To Style Minimalist Earrings

Earrings are the fastest, easiest, most creative way to get the look you’re after - whatever it is. Minimalist earrings are simple designs that make an impressive impact on you and your outfit. Here are a few style suggestions for your minimalist earrings. 

Minimalist Stud Earrings

Studs are the epitome of minimalism. Although we usually think of them as a little boring or barely jewelry, they can be stunning and fabulous. Studs are effortless glamor. They can be cute and funny or elegant and delicate. You can wear studs with any outfit to suit any occasion, from your wedding day to going grocery shopping. 

Studs are also timeless and can be inexpensive. You can invest in an expensive pair of studs with a single precious stone, or you can find less costly faux stones. Some faux stones can look almost as beautiful as the real thing. If you want to go even cheaper, there is always costume jewelry. 

Geometric shapes can add a level of newness to the standard stud, making them an impressive statement piece.  

You can find these minimalist earrings in an unlimited number of sizes, designs, and metals.

The Classic Hoop

The classic hoop has stood the test of time for a reason - it always looks fantastic. There is no standard size for hoops; they can be as small or large as you like. They look chic and upgrade any outfit. Hoops are simple but eye-catching. They’re easily seen but still maintain a level of minimalism. Buy them in varying thicknesses, metals, colors, and of course, sizes.  

They don’t have to be round. Hoops can have geometric shapes to add a new twist to this old favorite. 

Geometric Shapes

Geometric-shaped earrings can add trendy edginess to your appearance. They’re especially popular this year, so be sure to update your jewelry collection with at least one pair of these modernizers.  

In the same vein, asymmetrical earrings are outstanding. A modern shaped earring can give your outfits an up-to-date look that will get people taking a second look. They’re a quick fix to a dated outfit.    

The possibilities of designs are endless, and they can retain their minimalistic look because they’re so sleek.

The versatility of geometric-shaped earrings is a considerable benefit. You can wear them to work, to dinner, or to play.

Stacked Earrings

If you have more than one hole in each ear, you can stack earrings. Wearing two small hoops in each ear or a hoop and a stud can look gorgeous. It’s a great everyday look. Be sure to show them off by keeping your hair from hiding your ears. Don’t stress about matching metals or stones. It’s okay to wear a stone stud with a hoop. If you want to be really creative and have fun with it, you can experiment with mixing metals with the hoops.

Drop Earrings

Drop earrings show that minimalist earrings don’t have to be plain. This exciting design can be fun, elegant, or both depending on the style. Their length can give you the illusion of an elongated neck, and their movement creates a sense of energy. 

An array of designs means you can find the right ones for your own taste and style. Add several kinds to your jewelry collection. They make great special occasion or daily go-to earrings. 

Their sleek design means they never look like too much - which is essential for the minimalist look.

Wear your loose, dangling drop earrings with fitted evening wear for an eye-catching look. Drop earrings look especially good when your neck and shoulders are bare. They make a great focal point for your ensemble. Or you can wear smaller or shorter drop earrings with your workwear.

Trendy Ear Climbers

Ear climbers extend the beauty of earrings up and around your ears. This stylish trend has given birth to all kinds of new designs. If you have a second hole in your ear (and even if you don’t), ear crawlers provide delicate attention-getting adornment. They’re available in simple lines, a wide variety of shapes, and textures, so you can find a way to express your individuality.    

You can wear your ear crawlers alone, with studs or hoops. This stacking of minimalistic jewelry can still look subtle and uncomplicated.


This one isn’t a style as much as it is a finish. The marble effect is classic and elegant, without being too much. You can find earrings with this finish in every style - studs, hoops, and drop earrings.

The marble effect is available in the classic off-white with black/grey lines, but it is also available in shades of pink, grey, black, and other colors for fashion purposes. It will look best with sharp, solid color clothing. They can accessorize your best, most dressy outfits. And they’re sure to get you plenty of attention.

Threader Earrings

If you like the look of longer earrings, you may love the trendy threader earrings. They are interesting and attractive and can upgrade your outfit for a more elegant look. They’re also just as impressive for casual wear. You can even go punk or grunge with these earrings. 

Threader earrings stack well with studs. And they remain visible no matter how you wear your hair.

These are not your nana’s pearls, but they do have a classic, soft look for anyone going for a more feminine feel. Pearl studs or pearl accents on other styles of earrings will give whatever you’re wearing a delicate lift. Pearls are an excellent choice for casual or dressy occasions. 

Your jewelry collection isn’t complete without a bit of pearl.
