As much as we love big statement baubles, summer accessorizing is all about pieces that won’t weigh you down or get ruined if you happen to take a spontaneous swim on a sweltering day. That said, we’ve found the chain threader earring to be the most practical—not to mention prettiest—jewelry staple of the season. Here’s why: Whether you’re wearing a breezy sundress and flats, jeans and a tattered band tee or a smoldering cocktail dress and heels, the dainty must-have adds unexpected polish to any look. Wear them alone, next to an ear crawler and multiple dainty studs or pulled through two holes for a heavy-metal outcome. And did we mention the trend is perfect for the girl who is constantly losing her posts? (You know who you are.) Misplaced earring backs, no more!
