Ileana Makri sapphire and 18-karat rose-gold huggie earrings

There’s just something about the humble huggie hoop—the small hoop that hugs the ear. I have a few piercings on each ear—a hazard of the trade—and at least one of the earrings in my stack is a whisper-thin huggie. I like these as they would fit right in with my lobe style but be just as impactful if I wore them solo. I also appreciate that they’re pink, subtly feminine but not overly bright; not too rosy, not too blue. And, to be totally honest, they’re giving me “jewelry chameleon.” That is, they go with everything—everything. Their sparkle just adds to their magic.

Sophie Bille Brahe Sirene necklace

I am a layerer of necklaces. I wear various charms on my necklaces collected throughout the years, and I’m forever adding more to my collection. This Sophie Bille Brahe Sirene necklace, from the designer’s La Regina Del Mare Adriatico Collection, is a standout for me. From the single pearl to the thin gold necklace, its sheer simplicity gives me low-key sophistication. This necklace is a fun way to wear the pearl trend without going too deep into the mania of strands of pearls. For me, this is the perfect partner to a The Row black dress or a white tank with jeans à la Bottega Veneta.
