Sterling Silver Ingot Earrings
Despite their simplicity, silver ingot earrings are as yummy as a cup of cocoa and hot cake on a cold day. They’ve made it into my new hashtag #Iwantneedmusthave list.
Silver Ingot Earrings' Many Facets
Make no mistake, as basic as they may seem, these silver bar earrings have the power to turn your outfit into quite the envy. Made of sterling silver then plated with white rhodium to eliminate tarnish, these versatile, everyday type of jewellery are a steal at £26.
From rocker chick, to office sophisticated, there's no shortage as to the number of outfit types these stud earrings can complement.
Copying the Look
As I swift through #ootd photos on Instagram and Pinterest, my eyes rested on this look. It seemed like the perfect pairing with the silver ingots.

It's a timeless rebellious twist on the preppy look, especially with the addition of the silver ingot earrings.
It can be easily teleported from summer to winter with a few quick tweaks.
I thought to myself, I must share it with you and show you how to get this look to make it your own.
Take a Cue from James Dean
Let's start with the motorcycle leather jacket, something James Dean mastered back in his day. Vegan or genuine, the choice is yours. To sway on the side of affordability, I snatched this Zara faux leather number from Who What Where.
Zara vegan leather motorcycle jacket
It's a great style at an affordable price point. It’s got all the cool zipper elements of a motorcycle jacket that would be accentuated by silver ingot earrings. However, note that when vegan leather ages, you won’t get the same worn effect as you do with genuine leather. It also doesn’t last as long, especially if it’s a piece you think you’ll be wearing often.
Borrow from Emma Watson
You may’ve spotted Emma Watson in this BCBG black and white polka dot dress, which is similar to the one I found on Pinterest. You’ve probably thought to yourself “Where can I get me one?” Well aren’t you lucky! Because I happen to find it for you. The best part, it won’t cost you more than than £19. I have two options here, one to be worn with a belt and the other, without.
Tip: For the dress options, choose the selection that best suits your body type. See here for what to wear for your body shape.
For the skinny belt, Etsy had some pretty awesome options. This one was my favourite.

These Boots Are Made for Walking & This Tote is Made for Stuffing
Since we are well into the fall, lace-up combat style Steve Madden boots in a similar colour to the belt would be ideal.
Dangle this Angela Roi large tote on your shoulders or arms. It's a great passe-partout option that literally will fit all your belongings and then some.
TIP: Choosing boots over ballet flats can work well for breezy summer nights.
If you choose to go belt-less, I’d still go with a mahogony brown as opposed to black to intensify the outfit.
One by One Jewellery has several other crazy cool pieces you can add to your outfit and your silver ingot earrings.
Check out this single strand of twinkling cubic zirconia bracelet.
Go pro and pair it with the silver crystal bangle from the Constellations Collection,
a silver watch, or this hot Atomic Ring in sterling silver.
Tip: For more emphasis, put on a matte red lipstick.
