Now is the perfect time of year to buy fun new earrings. It’s fall, but it’s not real fall, when you can wear sweaters and boots and all those new things you’re currently browsing when you’re bored at work. But you’re also probably totally sick of your summer clothing, since you’ve been wearing it since May. If you feel the profound need to switch up your look, try one of these 16 options from Amazon. They’re all under $50, and some of them are under $15.

A Floral for Fall

These are grandmotherly in a cool, counterintuitive way.

If You’re More of an Ear-Cuff Person

If You’re Longing for Summer Again

If You Have a Secret Punk Streak

The diamond studs say “I’m a functioning adult,” but the little dagger whispers, “But I have a dark side.”

If You Like to Combine Trends

Pearls are having a moment, shells are having a moment. Put them together and you have this earring!

If You’re Attracted to Classics

Nothing wrong with a shiny little stud. It’s even better when it’s in a bright color like magenta.

If You Like Hoops but Also Like Being Different

If You’re a Preppy at Heart

If You Want Something Simple but Not Too Simple

The texture on these studs adds that little something extra.

If You Love Color

Wear ’em with a black turtleneck, wear ’em with a colorful, maximal rainbow outfit. Either way, they’ll add a bit of sunshine to your look.

If You Need a Basic

If You Need a Basic but Prefer Silver

Speak for themselves. Plus, unlike small, dainty hoops, these have a nice heft to them.

If You Haven’t Let Old Céline Go

If You Like to Buy in Bulk

Or if you can’t decide whether gold, rose gold, or silver is really your color.

If You’re Into the Memphis Design Revival

The color scheme and the nontraditional post (no earring backs!) make this feel like it’s an extension of what Ettore Sottsass & Co. have wrought.

If You Really Loved the ‘Lover’ Video

Taylor wears a pair of sunshine-y drop earrings in her “Lover” video. If you love the look, these are a good dupe.
