Earrings have moved front and center for the fall 2015 season. Gone are the days of the stacked bracelets, aka “arm party;” and while the long necklace is enjoying a moment in the sun, earrings are the hot ticket in jewelry for fall 2015.
In the 1980’s, stud earrings were all the rage. As a part of the stud earring trend, designers added earring jackets to the backs of studs in order to make them more versatile; and give dangle earring fanatics something to wear!
Earring jackets have been crawling back into style over the past few seasons, and designers have taken to the trend, which started on the street, for fall 2015. This is the season of the earring jacket.
Earring jackets for fall 2015 are being shown in short style which hover around 1/4 inch from the bottom of the ear lobe. While some styles offer an inch or more of a drop, the majority of earring jacket styles for fall 2015 are staying close to the ear. I absolutely love this trend. Earring jackets are so easy to wear on a daily basis. I love also love this style since it can be worn day into evening. Versatility = love!
Designer are showing earring jackets in four metal colors for fall including silver, gold, rose gold, and black. Embellishments includes sparkling CZ’s, or similar materials, and imitation gemstones.
Another huge trend in earrings for fall 2015 is the ear crawler. This style has also been around for a few seasons and is enjoying popularity for the fall season. Look for ear crawlers in silver and gold for fall with sparkling embellishments.
If you want to rock the original earring jacket trend from the 1980’s, check out your Mother’s jewelry box for a stray pair or two from the ’80’s. Chances are, she kept a pair! Also, vintage shops should have a few pairs in stock. When shopping for vintage jewelry, make sure the metal-tone has not worn off the edges, and all stones are secure. Also, look for silver stamps or designer markings. This will help you determine the quality.

Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
