If you follow fashion trends (or even if you don’t), you’ve probably seen celebrities wearing something slightly different on the red carpet this year. If you look closely, many celebs are now wearing mismatched earrings. It’s rumored that this trend started at Dior, but it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, so there’s plenty of time to try out this new trend while it’s still around.

If you want to try out this trend, there is no need to rush out and purchase a pair of mismatched earrings; there are plenty of other ways to try out the look without splurging for a pair of earrings that you might not be able to wear after the trend fades.

Mismatched Stud Pearl Earrings

If you are really interested in trying out the new mismatched pearl earring trend with stud earrings, there is no better way to do it than by using two different colors of pearls. If you have one set of pearl stud earrings already, this is an extremely easy thing to do. All you have to do is buy one more set of earrings and you will be able to mix and match to your heart’s content. If you are planning on doing this with a white pearl earring, then a great complimentary choice would be either a gold or pink freshwater pearl.

The best part about this type of mismatched style is that when you are done you still have two sets of beautiful pearl earrings that you can wear, regardless of whether you choose to continue wearing mismatched earrings.

Mismatched Dangling Pearl Earrings

While a little harder to pull off, using dangling pearl earrings is closer to the style being worn today. For this to work, you will want to use a similar color pearl, but find an earring that hangs just off your earlobe and one that hands much further down to accentuate the mismatched quality.

Similarly to before, if you already have one of these sets of dangling earrings, then all you have to do is find a complimentary set and you are ready to go.

The mismatched earring trend may seem like an expensive one to follow if you go out and buy a set of earrings specifically designed to be mismatched, but you can easily do the exact same thing with two sets of beautiful pearl earrings, and the best part is that when you are done you will still have two sets of matching earrings that you can wear anywhere that you want.
