In this weekly feature, InStyle’s Senior Market Editor/Digital Correspondent Dana Avidan-Cohn shares tips and tricks on how to tackle the latest trends. Look for it on What’s Right Now every Friday and be sure to try out the trend yourself using #HowToWearIt.

The cuff has reinvented itself. The beloved easy-to-throw-on style has traveled upward, taking hold of some new real estate: your ear. The earcuff is one of the biggest trends in jewelry at the moment. And unlike real estate, you can easily own an earcuff at a reasonable price. Luckily, the decorative ear piece is not limited to pricey fine jewelry designers, making this is a trend you can actually try before you go out and buy the real thing, à la Cara Delevingne. One more take away from cool-girl Cara? Opt for an ear cuff with crystals galore. The added sparkle makes it seem a bit more feminine.

So, how to wear it? Pull your hair back, and—to add oomph to an already eye-catching style—don't be afraid to go a little heavy-handed with your eye liner. Classic, slightly-severe eye makeup poses as the perfect balancing act to your edgy, of-the-moment accessory.
