Hair jewelry is nothing new—it’s been a tradition in multiple cultures for centuries. What does feel fresh is weaving jewelry generally intended for other areas into our hair—a move that has apparently been pioneered for the Insta-gen by Kylie Jenner.
To brother-in-law Kanye West’s Sunday Service yesterday, Jenner arrived in a simple shift dress, sneakers, and waist-length ponytail braid interspersed with shells and clear crosses. She posted not one but three different angles of the look (including a video of it flicking in the wind), and while the accessories she selected are unlikely to be earrings as opposed to some heavy-duty charms, that doesn’t mean we can’t improvise a little for the warmer months.
In her honor, we’ve compiled the best danglies to double as stellar hair accessories. Forgo your traditional hoops or sleepers and mix it up this summer with earrings that pack a real punch—with the added advantage of spicing up any plait, any size, any time.
