What Are Ear Suspenders? These Cute Earrings Are A Celeb Must-Have — PHOTOS

If you're bored with studs and hoops and want to update your accessories game, this new dainty earring might be your next best purchase. If you haven't heard of an earring called ear suspenders, expect to see a lot of celebrities wearing them soon. Celebrities including Sophia Bush, Anna Kendrick, and Gigi Hadid have been spotted wearing the new ear suspender trend, and you're going to want in on it.

The ear suspender can be worn in a regular-pierced ear and doesn't require any new piercings, which is especially nice if you're afraid of needles, blood, or pain. This new little earring trend was started thanks to the Smith + Mara brand that will soon probably be one of the more well-known trendy jewelry brands to pop up on your radar (similar to how Jennifer Meyer jewelry blew up and could be seen on the wrists of everyone in Hollywood).

Recently, the ear suspender has been making waves through Instagram and even advertisement campaigns. (Gigi Hadid has been seen rocking the newest trend in a beauty ad for Maybelline!) It may be a little hard to tell exactly how the earring is worn, but imagine a little hooked bar hooking onto the top of your ear lobe — it's easier than it looks!
