Most women cannot do without and there is an increasing number of men who are into a bit of lobe love. But why talk in binary terms when anyone and everyone can benefit from a pair of studs, hoops or dangling earrings? Every culture in the world has figured out earrings complement your face and overall look. For autumn-winter 2019-2020, we see the ear huggers back in full force in even bolder and more creative ways. At Loewe, a long belt earrings with a square crystal buckle waved in the air as the model walked down the runway in a Puritan-meets-playful look. At Prada, Miuccia also had a sense of whimsy and humour with a pair of floral drop dangles in a pretty pink and a yellow, resembling a sunflower. It was just the touch of colour an all-black outfit needed. To match outfits with more electric, colourful vibes, Kenzo released a pair of long earrings in the shape of a thick paper clip.

She is, after all, the muse for this season’s collection of polished, sleek, grey and black looks. The French house also revealed a pair of punkish, metal gun-coloured crystal studs, which covered up almost half the ear. This year, it’s go long, and apparently, go wide. Match it with a beret or skull cap to increase the intensity of your look.

Featured this season were the “Birdy” earrings, which were – as you might have guessed – shaped like songbirds suspended by delicate chains to form a silhouette of a fan. They were finished with swishy leaf-shaped charms dangling at the ends. Where Marant featured blades, Gucci offered shields. A big eye-catcher on the runway was the pair of hammered metal flaps covered in cabochon stones. The pressed metal covered the entire ear and resembled a cross between ancient Roman sculptures and Star Trek . They were gorgeous and could go with almost any everyday look, such as a blazer paired with a simple pair of jeans. It’s very Gucci to come out with accessories that elevate the most casual of looks.
