Window Shopper: Killer Earrings To Jazz Up Any Humdrum Ensemble

1
We don't know about you, but we tend to gravitate toward a lot of black pieces in our wardrobe this time of the year. Blame it on those extraneous holiday treats, but that dark hue is, well, safe — and, to be honest, also a bit drab and boring. If you aren't planning on ditching your dark duds until springtime, the least you can do is jazz up your ensemble with a splash of color.

We heart these gorgeous gemstone sparklers from local jewelry designer Erin Gallagher. Not only does the tranquil color remind us of the powder blue skies we long for this time of year, but it also provides an element of surprise to a simple tunic-and-leggings or blouse-and-skirt combo. If you're not, um, feeling blue (even though it is a hot resort wear trend right now), there's also a red, yellow, purple, and brown gemstone option you can dangle from your lobes.
erin gallagher Elaine Gemstone Earrings, $85, available at erin gallagher, 1013 West Webster Avenue (at North Sheffield Avenue); 866-582-6709.
