There's a strong possibility it's already in your closet.

Although we encourage experimentation and trying new trends, there’s something to be said for having a signature style. Kate Middleton and Amal Clooney, for example, like what they like. The royal is famous for rewearing her favorite outfits and breaking out polished dresses or coats for appearances. The human rights lawyer is a bit more adventurous when it comes to her clothing, but leans toward the color red and loves matching sets. And both women have the same go-to accessory: drop earrings.

Looking back at some of Middleton and Clooney's most iconic looks, we realized that they wear this particular earring style on repeat. They might switch up the specific pair, they might go smaller in size or opt to make a statement, but more often than not, they prefer drops over simple studs or trendy hoops. We're not sure why that's the case — perhaps they feel like these earrings are more classic or elegant — but it's worth taking a look at how they style them as you likely have a pair of your own hidden away in your jewelry box.
