This year’s Met Gala was always going to be the biggest sartorial spectacle, with every attendee appearing to channel the avant-garde style of Comme des Garçons designer and honoree, Rei Kawakubo.

Because, if you can’t take a fashion risk on the Met red carpet, when can you folks? Pause for thought when we cast our minds back to this time last year – when it was all about futuristic femme, Zayn’s Robocop get-up and, er, Kanye’s eyeballs.

Fast-forward, and the accessories forecast is looking decidedly less sci-fi, more artful. The next big jewellery trend? Get ready for mismatched earrings! Yes, really.

From OTT earpiece bling (see model Adwoa Aboah, who opted for a design from young Central Saint Martins graduate Conner Ives) to bold and architectural lobe-dressing (yes, we’re now using that phrase). For those looking for a more understated approach, check out Gigi Hadid, Daisy Ridley and Sofia Richie’s simple take on the ‘It’ accessory of the moment.

Though please be prepared for your non ‘fashion’ mates to question you because you appear to have gotten dressed in the dark.
