When I was a child, Christ­mas day was spent in ei­ther underwear, a swim­suit or, if I was re­ally dress­ing up, I’d be in py­ja­mas.

It was only when I grew up that I re­alised a lot of peo­ple were putting ef­fort into their ideal ‘Christ­mas day out­fit’ or mak­ing a point of find­ing the per­fect shoe that can take you seam­lessly to a fam­ily func­tion and to a friend’s bar­be­cue.

If the lat­ter sounds like your vibe, then can I sug­gest this sea­son — first things first — go get your­self a fab­u­lous ear­ring!

Yeah, yeah, I know, ear­rings are noth­ing new but there’s a cer­tain group of ear candy that are re­ally hav­ing a moment right now.

They’re mainly min­i­mal me­tal styles, noth­ing too state­ment-y or loud.

Geo­met­ric shapes, hoops and fine lines are the way to go.

My favourite la­bels out of Aus­tralia are Ellery, Natasha Sch­weitzer and Holly Ryan.

Or for in­ter­na­tional brands there’s Knob­bly Stu­dio, Alighieri Jew­ellery, So­phie Buhai and Ce­line.

Check them out on In­sta­gram and you’ll see what I mean.

The best bit? With their like­ness to shiny Christ­mas tree or­na­ments, you could throw a sub­tle nod to fes­tive dress­ing while still ad­ding an ele­ment of so­phis­ti­ca­tion to your silly sea­son ensem­ble.

It’s like the ugly Christ­mas jumper, but classy.

Ear­rings aren’t your thing or have non-pierced lobes? No prob­lem! Ear­rings make a great gift this time of year.

And if they are for you? They’re a pretty per­fect self-gift.

’Ears to a happy Christ­mas!
