How To Rock The Curated Ear: 2020's Edgy Piercing Trend

More is definitely more


Over the last few years, curated piercings rose as another form of creative self-expression. The more, the merrier as they say. Celebrities like Rihanna, Lucy Hale, and Florence Pugh have even taken their multiple earrings to the red carpet. With curated ears slowly slipping into the mainstream, ahead, we curate our own piercing pegs if you’re looking to follow the curated ear piercing trend.


Simply Studded




Even though curated ears give the message of creative chaos, you could opt for a simpler set. Individually, these studs are very simple to look at, but altogether, they create a sparkling composition. This is a good place to start experimenting with this piercing trend. This type of curation doesn’t draw too much attention to the wearer, and but the wearer can also try out different studs.

Minimalist Bouquet




Going for a creative yet minimalist look? Go for a statement-making earring and a rook piercing. This particular set is made up of three rook piercings. With the precise placement, they comprise a cohesive whole made more stunning by the stones.


Loop-A-Hoop




Small hoop earrings are perfect for conch orbital and earlobe piercings. They add depth, whether as a smooth polished hoop or a bedazzled one. However, these might not be for you if you like to sleep on your side. An conch orbital piercing is also one of the most painful ones out there, so do take note if you have a low tolerance for pain.

Perfect Combination




Alternate the hoops and studs with both an earlobe and a conch orbital piercing. The key here is choosing the same material (either gold or silver) for your pieces. That way, the curation still looks intentional even if you got the piercings at different sessions.


Starry-Eyed Inside




With the continued popularity of astrology, more women are getting into constellation-inspired curated ears using star-shaped earrings with diamonds as the stones, or putting together a customised arrangement inspired by the constellations. Rocking this piercing trend can take some commitment (both in piercing and choosing the pieces) but you’ll never be at a loss for conversation starters.
