It is a little known fact that earrings can make or break an outfit. They are the easiest accessory to throw on in the last minute and they can be the difference between standing out in the crowd and blending into the wallpaper.
The first thing that you need to do is to understand the types of earrings available and which ones are best for your face shape. The first thing is to know there are essentially three types of earrings:
Studs – small earrings that come in a variety of shapes. Studs can accentuate without pretention.
Drops – can be long or short with elegant shapes.
Hoops – are circular earrings made from a variety of different materials.
Knowing the types of earrings available is not the only skill you need. You also need to be able to match the type of earring to the shape of your face. Here is a breakdown of what types of earrings would best suit the shape of your face:
Oval – You are lucky because you suit most earring types, but I would stick to teardrops and studs.
Square – You will suit rounded designs as they will soften your face. These include elongated dangly pieces and hoop earrings.
Heart – Elongated lines and curves such as a dangle, teardrop and chandelier will best suit your face shape.
Round – Round shaped faces best suit long and angular earrings like a teardrop and a dangle earring.
Diamond – Dangle and hoop earrings will help to balance sharp features in diamond shaped faces.
Now you know the tricks of the trade, go out and make your earrings work for you!
