Capsule Wardrobe Basics - Minimalist Earrings for Every Occasion

Posted by on

Earrings have the power to make or break an outfit.  It's the little details that make all the difference!

And when you have a minimalist wardrobe, not knowing if you have the right accessories to finish an outfit can bring up feelings from frustration to horror.

Most of us would love an on-call stylist; someone to curate what we need, and tell us how and when to wear it.

Paging Brad, Brad Goreski to Kate's closet.

We’d want to know, ‘Are these earrings too flirty for meeting my ex for drinks?’

‘Does this sherbert yellow scarf clash with my teal dress?’

‘What style of earrings say, ‘I’m sexy, but also respectable?’

Minimal earrings are versatile. Preserve your capsule wardrobe, but pump up the volume, add some spice, and jazz up your outfit!

Sunday Funday Brunch

Brunch is a colorful event! Whether you choose a low-key brunch with colorful smoothie bowls and almond milk lattes or Sunday chic with double chocolate french toast and a spicy bloody mary, pair your accessories to be as bold and vibrant as what you eat.

Enjoy time with your gal pals in hues that make a statement -- like these Iris Purple Sterling Silver Dangle Earrings. Pair them with an off-the-shoulder chunky sweater or sweatpants -- you do you, girl!

The Case of the Mondays


It’s more important to get a good night’s sleep than wake up early to perfect your look.

Promise. You'll thank me when your 30. Plus, under eye bags.

Avoid the early alarm clock by keeping a pair of these nude resin stud earrings on your dresser. Your ears will never go naked, regardless of your outfit of the day.

Happy Hour

For casual events, simple stud earrings are a safe bet. They can move with you, whether you’re ice skating or hanging out at a local brewery.

They also complete your look without being over-the-top. For example, check out these black teardrop stud earrings, which are perfect for daily wear.

Date Night with Bae

This is it. You booked a babysitter. Hubs made the reservation. And your LBD is ready.

Don’t screw it up now!

The Kate & Moose single drop dangle minimal earrings are the perfect accessory for date night. Lightweight with just the right amount of color, the minimalist drop style will flow with your every twirl across the dance floor.

Party Time. Excellent!

New Year’s Day kicked off the beginning of engagement season. Distract everyone from the bride-to-be’s rock with these Pink and Iris Purple Dangle Earrings.

Whether the event is outdoor or black-tie, these hues transition flawlessly. Plus, they add a fun pop of color to your outfit.

A Night at the Opera

Sometimes, my other half and I go to a show at the Kennedy Center. We really dress up --  I even rent a dress from Rent the Runway.

We’ll also book a hotel room in the city, and go to a nice restaurant.

On those nights out, these gold flake dangle earrings are my favorite pair. But, I’d recommend any of the gold, silver, or rose gold dangle earrings as formal attire appropriate.

Don’t overlook the importance of a good pair of minimal earrings.

You can have an arsenal of earrings perfect for any occasion, without cluttering your capsule wardrobe.

Choose bright, fun colors for brunch. Go neutral during the week. And choose a statement piece for date nights, parties, or formal events.

If you don’t wear jewelry often, at least grab these six minimalist pairs, so you’re ready for any occasion!

Which pair do you want the most?
