Day To Night Earrings
Category : Fashion
It’s always nice when you can pack something that does double duty on your travels… the space you save in your suitcase is space you can fill with fascinating purchases instead, and with kit that turns into something else, you stand less chance of looking like a scruffy backpacker by Day 3.
I know that jewellery doesn’t take up much room, but even so it pleases me greatly when I can transform a pair of simple earrings into something more glamorous for the evening.
These are some of my favourites. The clip-on earrings above right are simple shiny or matt gold on one side, but turn them round and they sparkle with ‘diamonds’. They pinch a bit after a few hours, but they look great and are so clever that it is worth it to give them some play.
The collection of studs above left are slightly more complicated but can be mixed and matched at will. Building on the Japanese trick of attaching something cute and dangly to the butterfly clip, so that it hangs behind and below your ear instead of in front, these are accessories that slide onto the post of your regular studs, transforming them for an evening out. By switching the combinations, you can appear to have a vast array of different earrings that will complement any outfit.
