How to choose the perfect earrings
Earrings are a popular modern jewellery accessory, and like choosing any item, it’s important to select a pair that you not only like, but that will enhance your natural beauty and unique features. Not sure where to begin? Then here’s all the help you need.
Choosing the right earrings for your face shape
When it comes to choosing earrings that flatter, remember that opposites attract. Round faces will find they are complemented by slim drop and dangle earrings, but not so much by hoop, button and stud earrings. If you have a slim and angular face, then rounded studs, clusters and hoops will look great by adding an illusion of width and balance. A square face will be softened with soft circular and oval shapes, and this face shape should avoid angular and square earrings.
If your face is heart-shaped (which means that the lower half of your face is narrower compared to the top half), you can balance out your features with earrings that are wider at the bottom than they are at the top. It’s generally agreed that oval-shaped faces are balanced, and therefore can wear any style of earrings.
Your face shape isn’t the only thing you need to consider. Bone structure also plays a significant role. Delicate bone structure and petite features look great with delicate and subtle earrings, while those with sharper and stronger noses, cheekbones and jawlines can carry something that makes more of a statement.
Don’t forget colour!
Contrary to popular belief, it’s not your actual skin colour that determines the effect, but instead, it will depend on your underlying skin tone, in conjunction with hair colour. If you have warm undertones, you’ll find that gold suits you best, while if you have a cool undertone, you’ll be more flattered by platinum and silver. This is not to say that people with warm-toned skins can never wear silver or that those with cooler-toned skins can never wear gold! This is a mere guide.
Now that you know how to choose the right earrings for your skin tone, face shape and structure, you’ll never settle for a pair that looks good, because you’ll know exactly how to choose one that looks great.
