Getting clipped can do wonders for your visage and an asymmetrical neckline. Notice the balance Jennifer Lopez achieves with those absolutely spectacular ear clips from Cartier. What I particularly like here is that the earrings read more like an oversized huggy, which side steps the sometimes distracting exaggeration of a big hoop. The expanse of diamonds focuses our attention to what is going on between the two ornaments: her sultry eyes and warm smile. Ms. Lopez makes a great case for the fitted earring, and it is a look that can be adapted to day or evening wear. I breezed through Lord & Taylor’s sale today looking for a fitted pair of Harry Winston-esque earrings that I had admired months earlier. They were gone.
