Clip-On Earrings Back in Vogue

These lovely vintage clip-on earrings, a few from my personal collection, are similar to the styles currently seen on runway models and celebrities gracing the covers of major fashion magazines.

These statement making earrings are the go-to accessory for Fall that almost everyone can afford. The large goldtone and pave button earrings above were only $1.00 at the local flea market.  Clip-on earring styles range from casual to all out glamorous.  With such a variety, it's possible to find clip-ons to compliment almost every outfit.  Styles include door knockers, floral, geometric designs, bright enamels, rhinestones, beads, etc.  They can be oversized or average.  In my opinion, texture is the key to a really great earring.  Have fun with this trend, but don't overdo it for the office.  Keep it professional looking.   On your free time, experiment with the oversized and sparkly, even during the day.

Major department stores are carrying a lot more clip-ons.  Also, check at vintage stores or visit your mom and grandmother for some really great finds.

I would love to get my hands on vintage clip on earrings! These look really cute.

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) There definitely should be more modest fashion blogs out there, and you have great content!
