23 minimalist earrings to buy now and wear forever

Chandelier earrings have had a pretty solid run, but sometimes when your outfit is already talking, simple, straightforward jewelry is all you need. Of course, the best minimalist earrings aren’t necessarily straightforward – they can be dainty, sophisticated, and serve as the finishing touch to any look. Plus, understated hoops, sleek structural earrings, and simple studs are so timeless in themselves that they might as well be part of your seasonal capsule wardrobe.

While some designers have made names for their minimalist aesthetic (think: J. Hannah, Jenny Bird, and Bagatiba), others like Agmes, Pattaraphan, and Lizzie Fortunato offer a range of styles that oscillate between bold and carefree. Looking for an overall minimalist look with a bold finish? Try teaming an ear full of hugs in mixed metal with white oversized wide-leg button down pants. Alternatively, make a pair of sculptural earrings the subtle focal point of your outfit by sticking to a monochrome color scheme and then tying your hair back to let it glow quietly.
