Get in touch with your wild side
An animal themed ear cuff is a great way to infuse an earthy or primal feel to your ensemble. According to Teen Vogue, Elle Fanning is one actress who realized this when she donned an intricate serpentine wrap around one ear at the 2013 Met Gala. The magazine noted that while two of these would have been overwhelming, one offers the perfect amount of drama. If you're thinking of following Fanning's lead, consider the .48 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia 18k Yellow Gold Over Sterling Silver Ear Pins Earrings will give you the same effect. However, if you're blonde, you might be better off opting for silver, which will stand out more against your hair. The Angel Wing Ear Pins In 10k Gold have an air of fairytale romance about them, and would look stunning with anything from jeans to an evening gown.
