Earrings are an essential part of any outfit, and finding the right pair can take some trial and error. Here are some helpful hints to help you find the perfect earring which will suit your face shape and complement your outfits.
Know Your Face Shape
There are four main shapes when it comes to faces: oval, round, triangle and square. Each one has its own unique characteristics, so knowing what type of earring suits you will make shopping much more effortless.
Like anything in fashion and shapes, certain earring shapes go well with each unique face shape. Of course, there are earrings which will suit any face shape. We will tell you later which ones they are.
Don’t Forget About Clip-on Earrings
Oval faces tend to have longer ears than other face shapes, so finding an earring with a large hole in the middle will help elongate them.
Round faces tend to have smaller ears, so choosing an earring with a small hole will give them more space. Also, long earrings will complement these faces.
Square faces tend to have shorter ears, so choose an earring with a medium-sized hole.
No pierced ears? No worries luckily clip-on exists. Not suitable for heavy earrings as they will slide but perfect for lighter earrings.
Match Colours with Your Skin Tone
If you’re looking for a pair of earrings that match your skin tone, then you need to consider what colours complement your complexion. You should also think about whether you prefer bolder or softer hues.
Not an Exact Science
If you’re looking for the perfect earring style, there are several things to consider before purchasing one.
First, think about what type of earring suits your personality. Do you prefer delicate jewellery or bold statement pieces?
Second, think about the colour of your skin. Darker colours like black and brown work well for people with darker skin tones, while lighter colours like white and beige work better for those with lighter skin.
Third, think about the size of your ears. Smaller holes suit rounder faces, while larger holes suit squarer faces. Finally, think about whether you prefer studs or hoops. Studs are generally considered more formal, while hoops are more casual.
Fourth, try to accentuate the items you love about your face. The other coin is to hide the features of your face that you don’t like that much.
Another essential item to consider is the occasion. Is it meant for casual, or are you going more the classic or traditional route?
All the considerations above might give you a headache. However, please remember it is not an exact science. For instance, if you want to go bolder, you can go for clashing colours with your skin tone. You can achieve quite a dramatic effect with this.
So which type of earring fits every face type? Well, you might have guessed it…it is the earring you love to wear. That said if you are not an earring fan that at least you should have one pair of studs in your jewellery box.
