Mismatched earrings are becoming more and more popular, but perhaps the most dramatic, and elegant, way to wear them (or one) is to choose a dressier, evening earring. I prefer something long, perhaps with diamonds or pearls, worn with your hair pulled back to accentuate your neck. If you feel unbalanced, a tiny stud or hoop in the other ear is a good option. The top pearl drop earring is a Maryam Nasser Zadeh and Sophie Buhai collaboration, coming this fall.
