What sort of earrings do you like? Drop earrings? Dangle? Chandlier ? Waterfall? Cluster? Filigree? Or just normal button earrings?Â While many of these designs areÂ pretty on their own and willÂ definitely bring some attention to ourÂ face if we put them on, some of themÂ may not necessarilyÂ flatter our face shape.Â
Here are some tips that I’ve come across for choosing earrings to suit different face shapes:
If you have an oval face you’re really lucky becauseÂ you can wear a wide range of shapes, sizes and styles of earrings.Â Â However, avoid those extremely long, narrow dangling earrings that will elongate your face and instead, wear earrings to widen and balance this pretty face shape. Hoops, large ovals orÂ chandliersÂ are examples and so too are button earrings likeÂ studs and round gem earrings.
If you have aÂ square shaped face withÂ a very wide jaw, having earrings that end just at the jaw will not look good.Â Your wide square jaw will look good with drop earringsÂ especially those that are angular in shape with rounded edges.
With this shape, avoid earrings that call attention to the pointy chin. You can wear earrings that areÂ a little wider and ends just at the jaw to balance your face. Choose oval chandlier earrings that flare at the bottom for example.Â Hoops are also nice.
No hoops,Â short triangularÂ or tiny earrings for this face shape.Â WearÂ wideÂ dangling or long chandlier type of earrings.Â If you choose button earrings, ensure they’re big and bold.Â Again, avoid round shaped button earrings.Â
At the end of the day, the most important consideration is to achieve balance.Â And of course, there are other things to consider likeÂ your overall sizeÂ and your personal preference.Â
Remember:Â while earrings can createÂ attention for you, you want to make sure you’re getting the right attention with the right earrings.Â Â Â
