Jewelry designers are finally maximizing earring real estate with the advent of double-sided earrings. Rather than fastening your earring with clunky metal backs, or worse, the well-intentioned plastic variety, utilize both ends of the post with backs that create streamlined shapes or an unexpected profile. The best part? Most double-sided earrings give the illusion of being simple studs, so it’s a subtle way of adding some extra sparkle or hardware.

Here are 10 top picks—available locally and online—to help you welcome winter in smart sartorial fashion. (Psst: For our women’s picks, go here.)

It’s officially cold, guys—25 degrees with an icy windchill cold.

All you need to do is avoid pleats and knee socks and you’ll be looking more McQueen and less co-ed in no time.

So toss one on (or prop one over your shoulders à la blogger chic) with a tee and jeans for a perfectly cozy fall look. Plus, if you opt for the leopard print, you’ve got yourself an Edie Sedgwick get-up for Halloween.
