Getting dressed when it’s cold outside is about as much fun as waiting for your number to be called at the DMV or getting your vagina waxed. As in, it’s literally zero fun. Like, at all.
The grossness of the weather doesn’t exactly offer much as far as outfit inspiration goes, and if you’re anything like me, you wind up throwing on some iteration of the same sweater-jeans-boots or black skirt-sweater-tights combo every single day until March. But in my years of cold weather uniform dressing (… the most creative I get is swapping my blue jeans for black ones, but that’s only on fancy occasions), I’ve learned a handy little trick that helps me avoid my coworkers constantly asking me, “um, didn’t your wear that yesterday?” Which is: I dress up every outfit with a pair of earrings.
It may sound simple, but you’d be surprised how much a simple set of statement earrings can take a boring all-black outfit and make it seem totally different. Going for a bohemian vibe? Try something with tassels. Want something a bit more elevated? Dress up your look with some sort of bling-y element. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a good, old-fashioned, gold or silver situation. Earrings are the easiest way to add some color or flare to literally any look, and thanks to Amazon you can have an entire earring wardrobe in less than 24 hours for under $20 a pop.
