5 Popular Piercing Trends To Follow

*Collaborative post.

 

Piercings are a great accessory that can really lift an outfit but they are quite tricky. If you don’t match your piercings well with the rest of the outfit or you choose piercings that aren’t quite right for you, it can ruin your look entirely. Certain people can pull off more piercings than others and they’ll look fine with lots of large pieces, but other people need to go for something more understated.

Trends in piercings change quickly as well so it’s important that you change your piercings regularly to stay relevant. If you’ve been wearing the same few pairs of earrings for as long as you can remember, it might be time for a change. These are some of the latest trends in piercings to give you some inspiration.

 

Layering Lobe Piercings

The earlobes are the most common place to get a piercing and most people tend to wear either a small stud in the lobes or maybe something a bit larger like a dangly statement piece. But one of the latest trends is layering your lobe piercings on top of one another. Instead of just one single piercing or a few that are layered horizontally, a lot of people are stacking them vertically instead.

If you’re going to go for this look, you have to balance the two earrings well. Obviously, you can’t wear two dangly earrings over the top of one another because they’re just going to look messy. But if you pair a dangly earring with a nice understated stud above it, it looks great. You can also use two or three rings in an ascending pattern up the lobe, just make sure that they’re colours and designs that compliment one another well.

 

Rook Piercings

In the past, earlobe piercings were considered the norm and anything outside of that wasn’t always considered fashionable in the mainstream. But in the years since, cartilage piercings have become a lot more popular and people are using more interesting constellations of piercings rather than one simple piercing on the lobe. But it’s only in the last few years that rook piercings have become more popular. The rook is the area of the ear right in the centre, and a lot of people use it as the centrepiece for the rest of their piercings. It’s also the ideal accessory for a work outfit because you can easily cover it with your hair if needs be, but if you want to display it then you can tuck your hair behind your ears.

 

Orbital Piercings

Orbital piercings are a trend that has been around for a while but they’re only now entering mainstream fashion. An orbital piercing is one single piece of jewellery that connects two piercings. In the past, things like dangling chains were popular orbital piercings but they’re not particularly elegant and they aren’t ideal if you want a more formal understated look. But there are some great pieces of orbital jewellery that are a bit more stylish than a large chain.

 

 

 

Jewelled Septum Piercings

Septum piercings, often referred to as the bull ring piercing, are a popular nose piercing that is more widespread than ever. It was traditionally associated with a more edgy punk look but now people of all different styles are using it. One of the latest trends is a jewelled nose ring for septum piercings instead of a plain one. When you’re trying to put an outfit together and you’ve got a septum piercing, you can choose a nice ring with a coloured jewel that matches with the colours in the rest of your outfit. It’s a better way to incorporate your piercings into the outfit and tie it all together.

 

Belly Button Piercings

Belly button piercings or navel piercings used to be so popular but they fell out of fashion for a while, especially in older people. There was a preconception about belly button piercings that you can have them when you’re young and once you pass the age of 25, but that’s just not true. If you pick the right piece of jewellery for your piercing, a navel piercing can look very elegant and classy, which is why they’re coming back into fashion. Belly button piercings are becoming more popular with people of all ages and there is a lot more choice when it comes to buying jewellery for your belly button piercings. Small hoops, in particular, are very popular right now.

 

Piercings are a great way to accessorize if you get it right. Just follow these popular piercing trends and you’ll be able to give your outfits a boost.

What fashion accessories you should wear depending on the job you have

Accessories are part of every woman’s arsenal and, if chosen correctly, they can give a whole new meaning to your entire outfit. Yet, if these are chosen regardless of the period or occasion, such as a formal meeting, they can entirely ruin your look. So how can you wear fashion accessories and look fabulous at your workplace?

 

Getting the office look right

To always make a good impression at your workplace, you must keep in mind that not every accessory is suitable. It’s necessary to accessorize adequately, so don’t wear anything exaggerated, extravagant, or out of fashion. Another good advice is to always choose something that relates to the nature of your job. Without any doubt, the key to success is and will always be a sense of balance.

Styling your accessories for work

For example, if you work in sales or have a law-related activity, avoid the big, opulent, oversized fashion accessories that can give your wardrobe the air of extravagance. The people you are interacting with will need to be able to concentrate on the discussion and on the arguments you provide, rather than be swiped away by your accessories and wonder why you chose to wear this or that. With this in mind, you should choose subtle accessories that can accentuate your style, like a pair of pearl earrings or a delicate silver necklace.

In case you do want to wear some oversized accessories from time to time, then pick out a monochrome classic outfit that you can accessorize with a statement necklet. For example, you could go for a jacket, turtleneck, a pair of crayon pants and stiletto shoes, all in black, with which you can wear a silver statement necklace. In this simple manner, you will have a balanced outfit and it can also produce some effects.

The power of fashion accessories

Although many people believe that the main problem is wearing too many accessories, even if they are missing entirely can also represent a mistake. For instance, if you work as an assistant manager or have any other job that involves decision-making, the lack of fashion accessories will make you look sober and commanding, which will not be in your advantage. Try, as much as you can, to add appropriate fashion accessories to your wardrobe, such as a wristwatch, a pair of earrings, a necklace or a subtle bracelet, pieces that will give you a more feminine and delicate look.

If you are a fan of the boho chic style, you can confidently wear handmade accessories in vibrant color if you work in a creative environment (copywriting or photography) because these will bring out your personality. As an example, the purple color inspires the presence of artistic qualities, thus projecting that you are perfectly capable of taking on creative tasks, while yellow brings out optimism and resistance to stress.

If you work in fashion, glamour or online modeling, then you can choose a more relaxed wardrobe or a smart-casual look, to which you can add special accessories. A casual black dress that serves as a canvas for a statement necklace or a simple white shirt combined with a black stone necklace, skinny jeans, and black stiletto shoes can represent two great outfits. It all depends on you and the way you choose to show your personality via the fashion accessories you wear.

AfriCrafts Hand Crafted Leather Earrings

If you know me well enough, you would know I am very into jewellery, with earrings being at the top of the list. I have a thing for earrings, which is why I had to get an extra set of holes pierced some years ago, so I could wear more of them. Plus, I have a thing for studs, so it was a perfect way to wear my earrings and studs at the same time. My love for earrings has been on for as long as I can remember.
