How to change up your old dresses with new earrings

November 06, 2019

Bored of everything in your wardrobe but don’t have the funds to replace your entire closet? Do you have outfits on rotation and feel like you’re lacking that stylish spark? We hear you. At Twosisters the Label, we love to shop but we also hate living on ramen noodles until payday. So, we’ve found a way to upgrade your wardrobe instantly without spending your life savings.

With just a little bit of creativity, you can change your look. All it takes are a few accessories and you’ll be able to wear your old dresses like new again.

Why do we wear earrings?

The right earrings can bring together an entire outfit, no matter how many times you’ve worn the dress. It’s also the more cost-effective way to update your wardrobe, as studs and hoops are generally a third of the price of a new outfit. 

 “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point
of a woman’s outfit” – Michael Kors

While most of us wear jewellery because we like the way it looks, we’ve been adorning ourselves with accessories since time began. Only now, they’ve gotten much flashier and more stylish (we mean, would you want to wear animal teeth and bones around your neck?) 

In ancient times, kings, emperors and pharaohs wore jewellery as a symbol of status. Fast forward to modern days, and women (and even men!) wear rings and necklaces to express themselves, to complete an outfit, or to make a statement – and sometimes all three. 

What do you want your jewellery to say about you today? Twosisters the Label has a collection of earrings perfect for any outfit in your wardrobe.

How to wear earrings for different occasions

It’s a known fact that your earrings should match the specific occasion that you are dressing for, as well as your outfit. After all, loud and patterned jewellery can be distracting if you’re wearing a leopard print maxi. So, if you’ve got an upcoming special event, pick your fave dress and we’ll do the rest with our earrings.

Here’s some hard and fast rules to keep in mind when choosing our earrings to match your dress: 

  • For work: Unless you work in Vogue HQ, your jewellery choices should be subtle for a conservative office. Select pieces that aren’t too sparkly or too noisy – save the flash and jingles for after hours. This is especially true if you’re going for a job interview or meeting with clients for the first time. When you want to add a dash of colour, you can’t go wrong with our rattan-texturedGiada Earrings orCecelia Circle Studs in yellow. Muted tones also work well, such as our TortoiseGreta Earrings.

  • For a birthday party: When it comes to a celebration, anything goes. In fact, the more daring the better. Just be aware that if you’re considering colourful earrings, just make sure they don’t clash with your outfit. We love the look of chandelier tassel earrings, which are fun as well as stylish. We recommend ourEster Floral Hoop Earrings in pink or ourSeth Earrings in dual green tones, which can be worn with just about any summer colour, such as coral, fuchsia, yellow or even turquoise. Team with a party dress already in your wardrobe and we guarantee it will put a whole new spin on your outfit. 
  • For a wedding: Most weddings call for a formal, black-tie dress code, so you want to ensure your earrings will match an existing wardrobe staple. We love the elegant ease of our drop pearlLouisa Earrings or ourMireille Earrings made of a textured silver coin.
