For those formal occasions for those with peirced ears. Wear one or two. Bowtie or standard. They're all the rage in that trendy magazine, come on, you know you want them in the worst possible way.

About 3 inches long, these majestic silk mini-ties fit in standard earholes with a standard-backed pin. Wear red or yellow to that important business meeting, then switch to a neutral for dinner, all without taking your shirt off!

       And for the top of the ear, you could invent a small artificial hairpiece.

       Earwigs.

       You could stop clipping the hair in your ears and call it an earstache (or an eard).

       Perhaps two of them, one for each ear, that join together on your chest like a stethoscope, getting wide and continuing down to your belt like a real tie.

       A merkin?

       Making them out of cloth may be novel (though I suspect not), but tie and bowtie shaped earrings are plenty Baked.

       For Women: The perfect accompaniment to that awful suit you're sometimes required to wear to work, or to interviews. Women in ties are somewhat frowned upon. Here's our chance to wear the power tie!

       Not to mention you would have to have hundreds of them (x*2) to keep up with current fashion in patterns and shapes and half the earties that you owned would be so out of style that wearing them would be a gaffe.

       Eearties, n. Source of the common pirate expression "Avast, me earties!"
