Earrings For People Who Forget To Wear Earrings


We know what it’s like. You rush out the door and you managed to remember your phone, wallet, and keys. Eventually you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror or reflective surface and it hits you, you forgot to put on earrings. Now, not only do you feel underdressed but you realise your face looks like a glorified potato. When we pick out an outfit before a big event, we don’t usually think about which earrings we’ll pair it with. Earrings are an essential part of the outfit because they go on your head! If you’re like us and constantly forget to wear earrings, then we’ve got earrings you’ll have a hard time getting out of your head.

Matchy Matchy

Late 90s and early 00s fashion is really in right now. Quite frankly, we’ve been loving the flared jeans, glitter, and butterfly clips. If you loved the Backstreet Boys and always looked up to Lizzie McGuire, these earrings are for you. They’re a dainty gold reminder of the past. They’ve got a small hoop that latches (no need for back pieces) and dangling butterflies that will catch the light when you move. They’re small and will go perfect with any outfit that Brittany Spears would be proud of.

It’s a Sign

Sometimes, we forget to put on earrings and maybe that has something to do with a lack of personal connection. When we think of a memory and what we wore, we never remember what earrings we had on. Maybe it’s because our earrings aren’t saying anything meaningful. The next pair of earrings are designed after a constellation of stars. If you’re into astrology, then you’ll love these. Earrings, just like outfits, should reflect the things you love.

An Emoji Come to Life

We only realise that we like something a lot when someone else points it out. You know those pesky ads that show us clothes? 90% of the time, the clothes are from a store we like or one that is similar to ones we like. Thanks to technology that notices our patterns, it’s easier to see what we like when we don’t know or are indecisive. When we look at our frequently used emoji’s we’re always shocked to see the wilted rose. We admit it is pretty and very much a mood. Why not wear it?

Cherry Bomb!

One thing we love is food. I mean, who doesn’t? When we thought about wearing some of our favourite things, food definitely came to mind. But when we thought of wearing food, we only thought of was graphic t-shirts and embroidered patches. Cherries are one of our favorite foods and with the vastness of the internet, there must be a set of cherry earrings somewhere! After a quick Google search, we landed on these beauties. Perfect earrings for someone who would never forget their love for food.

What’s in a Name

Another way to make your earrings more personal to you is to add your own flair to them. With 90s style still reigning the fashion world, we thought it’d be a good idea to put nameplate earrings on this list. Now you could go down to the beauty supply store and pick these up for a fraction of the price but would you wear them? They’d just end up like all of your other earrings. The earrings we’ve picked are special because you’re able to customise them. That’s right! If you always have a hard time finding things with your name on it, these are for you. Write your name, nickname, astrological sign, whatever! Just make it yours.

P.S. This is a public service announcement reminding you that these earrings and any style of earring inspired by these was made popular by Black femmes.

If it Wasn’t Attached

Our mom always says that we’d forget our head if it wasn’t attached. Every year, that saying resonates with us more and more. Quite frankly, one of the reasons we forget to wear earrings is because they aren’t attached like our heads! Luckily, some stores make earrings that you can wear all day and all night. Yes, this includes while you sleep! You’ll never forget to wear earrings if you never have to put them on.

With something that is semi-permanent, you want to take into consideration that these earrings have to go with every outfit you wear. We recommend getting something that matches your overall vibe. If you like pastel and lace, get pearls. If you like black and leather, try a safety pin. It’s all about finding what works best for your look and wardrobe.

Keep it Current

So maybe you’ve looked at all these other reasons and feel like they didn’t quite fit why you’re not blinging out your earholes. You might need a refresh. Just as you update your wardrobe, you need to do the same for your jewellery. Of course you wouldn’t wear an amazing, trendy outfit with earrings you got back in middle school. It’s just not going to work, honey! A good tip is to throw away all of the earrings you haven’t worn in a year. Then go out and replaced those earrings with ones you love.

Make a Statement

As we grow, we change. It’s a natural part of life. In middle school, we wore was black and listened to heavy metal. But that’s not who we are any more. We’ve opened up our wardrobe to new colors and our playlists to artists who scream a little bit less. What we’re trying to say is that when you grow and change, so should your earrings. They frame your face which is what males them important! And if you used to be shy but now you’re a social butterfly, you’re going to need earrings that reflect that! Pick up some statement earrings that are more like art than anything else and you’ll never forget to wear them.
