What if we told you you could look like a million bucks for less than ten? That’s the secret that’s taking over your Instagram feed, and you probably haven’t even noticed. Globe-trotting heiresses and influencers are in on it, and it’s all about maxing out on glam for minimal investment.

The key? High-impact accessorizing. And what accessory works well in any weather? Earrings, of course. They’re one of the few pieces that doesn’t get stuck hiding under coats, and as it turns out, they’re the pieces you see, time and time again, tying outfits together and elevating ensembles to new heights.

It’s time to put an end to earrings-as-afterthought to getting dressed! This trend puts the tiny guys center stage and, man, have we seen some showstoppers. Basic sweaters, coats and jeans get an extravagant makeover with the addition of a chic statement earring. And, the more over the top the earrings, the more luxe the look.

It’s time to hit  the rhinestones and colorful acrylics, because a chandelier, hoop or tassel is exactly what your turtleneck needs to become a total head turner. And while you’re at it, tuck, slick, pin to clear the way and show off those lobes.
