Can LDS men wear earrings?
No, as a church standard, men do not wear earrings. Though if you had them before you got baptized, you just don't wear them anymore. Its not considered a sin, but rather a cultural thing that is frowned upon. Men cannot have earrings.

Latter-day prophets strongly discourage the piercing of the body except for medical purposes. If girls or women desire to have their ears pierced, they are encouraged to wear only one pair of modest earrings. Those who choose to disregard this counsel show a lack of respect for themselves and for God.
I hear a lot of weird misconceptions among LDS women and wearing their garments. Some of these include you can only wear white bras and you can only wear your garments against your skin and bra over. Well, I'm here to tell you both of those are ABSOLUTELY FALSE.
LDS women can take the pill, get IUDs, or use any other form of prevention, including getting tubes tied when their intended family is complete. Likewise, LDS men can use condoms and, when their intended family is complete, can get a vasectomy.
Hair should be kept "relatively short and evenly tapered." Faux-hawk, crew cuts, mullets, spikey styles, and messy hair are prohibited. They can't bleach or dye their hair.

The LDS church's website has an entire section devoted to grooming and dress, complete with makeup tutorials. “You are not required to wear makeup; however, wearing makeup can help you look your best,” it reads.
Are Mormon girls allowed to wear pants?
And the answer now includes female Mormon missionaries. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints updated its dress code for missionaries. Women are still supposed to wear skirts and dresses to worship. But women at more than 400 missions worldwide may wear dress slacks at other times.

Instead of remaining in the field of simple expressions of affection, some have turned themselves loose to fondling, often called 'necking,' with its intimate contacts and its passionate kissing. Necking is the younger member of this unholy family. Its bigger sister is called 'petting.
It depends on what 'designed for women' means. A standard men's piercing will be the same gauge as for a woman. And earrings can fit both sexes. If the question is referencing a stereotypically feminine earring (a big hoop or a long, dangling diamond number)... then that will be up to you.
For safety and security reasons, accessories should be simple and conservative and should not distract others from your message.
