BaubleBar Piñata Earrings ($36)

The older I get, the more casual holiday events become.  Baby bottles replace champagne bottles, jeans replace LBDs, and I start to think that maybe all glamour is lost.  But whether you’re wearing jeans, a wrap dress, or evening attire, you can bring a little party to your look with a cool pair of earrings.

I like these BaubleBar Piñata Earrings that come in 13 great colors.  They also come in a shorter ‘mini’ style.  And if you want to save money on more than one color, their gift box features three shades for $68.

Not loving the tassel style?  These Alexis Bittar drop earrings have a smoky neutral look to them that’s very sophisticated.  I also like the way these Kara Ross Nugget Drops mix white and yellow metal.  For something under-$25, these sea-green cabochon drops are pure elegance.

If drop earrings are not your thing, I recommend ear crawlers or ear jackets.  This simple Gorjana style has a hint of sparkle.  This dainty Leah Alexandra pair features moonstones.  I own these Nadri ear jackets and they have never let me down.

    Any leads on places that make modern, stylish clip-on earrings? I can’t wear pierced earrings anymore because of allergies, but I don’t have problems with my other jewelry, so I’ve been thinking of trying clip-ons.

      Macy’s always seems to have a wide selection. I know the Monet brand and the Kenneth Jay Lane brand make them.

    “The older I get, the more casual holiday events become.

      I just wear them anyway, at least whenever I can justify it.
