I Haven't Got Pierced Ears, But I Promise These Clip-Ons Are Just as Good

I don't know what happened, but I stopped wearing earrings in my pierced ears a while ago. This now means I have two problems: 1) I can no longer wear earrings as the holes have closed up, and 2) I'm missing out on the bold Pat Butcher–esque earring trend. Thankfully the solution was hiding in my nan's jewellery box all along: clip-on earrings. But don't fear the thought of wearing outdated pieces of jewellery: There are some incredible earrings available that range from the contemporary to vintage.

What I'm saying is that you don't have to have pierced ears to add the finishing touches to an outfit. In fact, I'd argue that some clip-on earrings are cooler than regular ones. However, I get that there's one major issue that most have with them—comfort. To remedy any potential painful problems, you can buy earring pads from Amazon for less than a fiver. Now you have that sorted, keep scrolling for my pick of the best clip-ons right now, and then try to stop yourself from shopping (I dare you).

Now that we've got that sorted, you have no excuse: Go forth and sport the bold earrings of your dreams.
