When you're Nikki Phillips, it's easy to take fashion risks. The beautiful blogger, model, TV personality and stylist has had a successful start to her career in the U.S. and beyond, constantly pushing the envelope with her daring fashion ensembles. The budding starlet recently stole the spotlight at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia as the reporter for the country's branch of Elle magazine. She may have been the reporter, but her look caused just as much attention as the models on the runway.
Wearing an ivory fringed lace dress by Stella McCartney, Phillips looked feminine and chic, adding a touch of edge to her attire with an eye-catching ear cuff by Ryan Storer that wrapped from the top of her ear to her lobe. Encrusted in diamonds and pearls, the statement jewelry piece was fashion-forward and certainly made waves among the fashion week style buzz.
Designer Storer has collaborated with names like Peter Lang, Dion Lee and Sass & Bide, creating cutting edge pieces that have sold out within days. Ear pieces have become his signature, according to Vogue Australia, and stylish women like Phillips have helped spread the trend internationally.
"I love the way people interpret my pieces and make it their own," Storer told Vogue. "I enjoy seeing the same piece worn in different ways."
Pulling off a bold piece like the ear cuff requires some confidence - as well as more than one piercing in your ear, which many young girls find trendy and chic today. If you're looking to spice up your ear accessories, you can start with a chic ear pin like the 18k Gold Over Sterling Silver Ear Pins "X" And "O" Ear Cuff. Bolder than a traditional earring, the piece will help you garner attention from your stylish friends and possibly sparking a new trend that you will be credited with starting.
