Earrings to Amp Up Your Updo

An updo puts your ears in the spotlight. What better way to add some spice to your look than with some fabulous earrings? So we've put together a collection of earrings for updos.

We love Ashley Olsen's sweet style pictured here, but the earrings really give this updo some va-voom. Read on to learn which type of earring will best suit your style.

Minimalist chic: There are times when a small, subtle stud earring is your best option. If you have a really intricate updo, you may not want your earrings to take attention away from it. This style of earring is also perfect for a new mom who is tired of prying little hands off of her jewels.

Bold and bright: For a simple updo like a pony or sockbun, go wild with a fun, colorful earring. This bold option is ideal for a night out with the girls. When choosing a bold earring, keep the rest of your jewelry simple. Leave those big, matching necklace and earring sets to your great-aunt!

Ladylike classics: For a sophisticated look that Kate Middleton would wear, we love these options. Each of these earrings would look fabulous with a low braid.  Consider this style when attending a wedding or having brunch with your in-laws. Your earrings will stand out, but won't overshadow your entire look.
