How To Work An Ear Cuff

Earcuffsweb
Since the moment ear cuffs sparkled on the Spring '13 runways (think Chanel and Rodarte), I've been completely obsessed with them and how they manage to be both offbeat and all-out glamorous. Some of my favorite style icons, Diane Krueger and Kate Bosworth, are stealing the spotlight in dazzling bejeweled versions.
While it may seem formidable, an ear cuff is similar in design to a clip-on earring and is surprisingly comfortable. Though I admit, it can be a little tricky to pull off, so here are some tips to help you master the ear cuff a la Ms. Krueger.
Tip 1: Give the cuff center stage. In other words, don't wear a necklace that's going to compete for attention. Pair it with subtle stud earrings (I like a mismatched pair) or no earrings at all.

Tip 2: Pull your hair back if you really want to let your ear cuff shine. Or, for a more demure look, you can wear your hair down and let it sparkle from underneath your tresses.
Tip 3: Go bold with your clothes. A big bejeweled cuff warrants a big-night-out outfit.
