New year, new jewelry. We know it’s cliche, but January really is the time for a fresh start, and the new year always makes us want to switch up our everyday pieces for an update to our signature style. We asked the LE team what pieces they’re most excited about wearing in 2021, and to no one’s surprise, they’re all earrings!
With the continuation of social distancing, the only way we’re really showing off our style these days is with closeups on zoom, facetime, and IG stories, which means we’re officially naming 2021 “the year of the earring.” From low maintenance solid gold styles that you can leave in at all times to add a tiny bit of glamour to your sweatsuit uniform, to dangling statement earrings that say “I actually put myself together for this zoom meeting,” earrings are how we’re flexing our personal style muscles this year. Read on for the LE team’s top picks for 2021!
“Like most people, I never truly knew just how lazy I could be until 2020 rolled around. Enter my obsession for any and all huggies. They're super low maintenance and I love that I don't have to worry about taking them off before exercising or showering (that is, IF I can convince myself to do either). These Solid Gold Baguette Huggies from Family Gold are as unique and stylish as they are practical for everyday wear with minimal care. Maybe 2021 will be the year to add some more piercings to my collection?!” Kate, Social Media & Partnerships Coordinator
“I can't stop bragging about these earrings! They are my favorite everyday earrings. They go with everything. Perfect by itself, or stacking with other earrings. I love that I can go to bed with them on, and not have to worry about them falling out or irritating my ears. They're so simple and minimalist, which is typically my style when it comes to jewelry. This piece was exactly what I needed in my jewelry box.” Beth, Senior Operations Specialist
“I like simple no fuss earrings that go with everything, and sparkly little CZ trios are perfect for every day. I love the huggie style that gives you a little something extra with the pop of gold at the bottom. Keeps it interesting without any extra effort :).” Steffi, Senior Manager of Operations & Business Analytics
“Labradorite is my current favorite stone, and I'm obsessed with these crystal threaders. They have an elevated bohemian feel to them and their dangling design gives them the most gorgeous movement that really plays up the flashing colors in the labradorite stones.” Sam, Content Creation, Partnerships & Growth Manager
“I just got the diamond and topaz version of these little flower studs over the holidays, and I love them! I think they're a fun and playful addition to any ear stack, but they also look great on their own! I've only been wearing them a couple weeks and have already received so many compliments on them!” Sarah, Art Director & Branding Lead
“These earrings are SO cute. I'm obsessed with how dainty and simple they are, while also managing to be a great conversational piece. They are super affordable, which makes for a perfect gift or add-on year round.” - Madeline, Brand & Growth Marketing Manager
“I’d been looking for something unique to add to my earring stack for a while and these are my absolute favorite! I love that I can pair these hearts with anything because they’re simple and go with so many styles - hoops, studs, threaders, they all look amazing with these. They’re so minimal and comfortable but add a fun lil somethin’ somethin’ to my stack that I just adore!” Katharine, Staff Photographer & Videographer
