Earrings are great fashion accessories that are often over-looked in many fashion articles. They can be the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae in terms of finishing touches to your look, and can help you match whatever mood you are in that day.
Years ago, earrings were something reserved solely for girls, whereas today of course, both females and males wear earrings with pride. Whether your parents got your ears pierced when you were small, or you had to wait until you were older to get them done, there are styles to suit all tastes.
Almost all K-Pop idols have their earlobes pierced, with many going for helix, industrial, tragus piercings and more too. No matter what, idols show how you can rock earrings with confidence, so let’s take a look at some examples for our own inspiration!
Big Bang leader G-Dragon is known for his flamboyant taste, and this often extends into his earring choice. He really pushes the boat out and selects some very unusual pairs to adorn his ears. He chooses both studs and dangly sets in all styles.
The same can be said of B.A.P’s leader Bang Yong Guk, who seems to favour dangly earrings in golds and blacks. However, he has also been known to wear more simple silver studs which complete his look well when he going for a less statement finish.
Girls’ Generation leader Taeyeon is a good example for how girly girls can do it too as we see she tends to go for more feminine, floral designs, pearls and silver tones in all her ear jewellery.
