The fashion scene is definitely spicing up this year with a bit more edgy appeal and spike earrings are becoming a must have jewelry item. Whether you're more into basic spike suds or extravagant drop or spike hoops, this is a very easy trend to add to your collection. Our favorite blogger and street wear looks have been soft and sweet paired with spikes. Pastels, nudes and flesh tones in soft, drapey apparel... paired with just a touch of spike, mixed in with other sweet and simply plated jewelry.
There is really no need to go over the top with the spike earring or spike jewelry trend in general. Choosing one piece to accent your softer or more main stream look makes for a perfectly balanced ensemble. Please, don't go 'goth' here girls... the goal is to accent a little more of your adventurous side, not scare off your admirers! And you really don't have to be all that adventurous to rock the spike earring. We found a boat load of cleverly designed spike earring style online. Everything from simple tiny studs to double sided, front and back spike studs and uber long thin spike earring. If you are more into larger, chunkier earring styles, spike hoops or forward facing hoops with spike charms are stocked up at some of our favorite retailers.
The store who are stocking this trend at the best price (though definitely not the best quality) are Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe. All three stores have lots of marked down spike earrings on their web stores. Our favorite middle market retailers, stocking a slightly more trendy product are Top hop, Asos and Urban Outfitters. But if you are looking for the perfect pair of spike earrings that will really last you a little while, our fave contemporary stores for this look are Max & Chloe, Shop The Trend, Endless and Shop Bop. And you know, when these higher end stores are stocking it, you definitely want to be seen wearing it!
Even though it's Spring time (almostttt), this trend seems to be meshing perfectly with the apparel that in the market. Colors for Spring seem to be mostly pastels and flesh tones mixed with brights. When adding jewelry to an extremely color or texture rich outfit, stick to basic plated styles - either silver, gold or gun metal. Go for a monochrome jewelry look and you'll never have to worry about chunking it on! The more, the merrier!
