How To Stack & Style Your Earrings
Whether you're searching for ear stack ideas or a step-by-step style guide for acing your ear game, look no further. We’ve rounded up the combinations we know you'll love, no matter how many piercings you have.
The Golden Rules of Stacking
Step #1 - Back to Basics
Feeling a little indecisive? Always begin with studs and huggies, earrings that prove that small things can bring big character. From pavé to pearl, these are the ultimate starting points for your ear stack.
Step #2 - Make a Statement
Level up with a bold hoop, charm hoop or drop earring that'll lend your subtle pieces some drama. Oh and PS: you don't have to save these looks solely for an occasion. This is your permission pass (not that you need one) to wear your most eye-catching, standout pieces everyday.
Step #3 - Get Creative
Wear your earrings as they come, or split them out to pair with different looks. We're all ears when it comes to mixing, matching and mismatching.
Play It By Ear
From gemstone earrings to megawatt hoops, make your jewellery work for you in whatever order you like. While the classic look features wearing smaller earrings in your third piercings with the largest taking centre stage in your lobe, rules are made to be broken – we love the look of experimenting with lengths and shapes.
And if you want to wear more earrings than you have piercings for? You can always cheat with an ear cuff (or three).

Mini Hoops & Huggies
What would a stacked earring look be without these heroes? But wait, what *actually* is a huggie? It's a hoop that hugs the ear – you may know them by the name sleeper, because (unsurprisingly) they're the ultimate comfy earring to sleep in.Shop All Mini Hoops & Huggies

Stacked Looks We Love
Hear us out, it wouldn’t be a ear stacking guide without all the inspiration.
Stack Like A Minimalist
Yes, we love a maximalist look (more can certainly be more). But sometimes it's all about paring it back with earrings made to blend in. Look to Missoma Fine for your investment pieces in 14ct solid gold with diamonds and blue sapphires.
Spell It Out
Give yourself a name drop, or pay tribute to your number one with our initial studs. Letter it be with 'O-K', 'D-O-G' or... just think of all the opportunities for showing you know your ABCs.
Mix And Match
While we love a power couple, there's also a selection of single earrings for you to pick and choose from. Talk about a jewellery pick n' mix. Think outside the jewellery box even further by mixing up your metals (like above with our iconic Chubby Hoops).
