Selecting The Perfect Earrings For Your Face
By ToptoBottom on January 14, 2014
If you are looking to add that extra pop to your outfit a great pair of earrings is just the thing. Whether they are hoops, chandelier or studs selecting the right kind of earrings for your face shape and outfit are key to enhancing your overall appearance. Here are a few simple guidelines to stick to when choosing the right pair for you.
Round Face: If you have a round face your best bet it to select long earrings that are not too ornate. Stick with thin or oval shape long earrings as they will draw the eye away from the shape of your face and create a thinner illusion. Short earrings or studs should be avoided as they will create more of a fullness to your face.
Square Face: If you have a strong square shape then you already have angles built into your face. You will want to stay away from earrings with sharp lines/angles/edges as it will deter from your image. To soften and lengthen your face select hoops, small drop earrings, teardrop shape, chandelier and tiered earrings.
Oval Face: An oval face is not too long, too round or too angular. You can get away with many shapes and styles. Your best bet are gemstone hoops, big studs and/or dangling earrings of any shape. The only thing to avoid are extra long thin earrings as they will elongate your face and not in the good way.
Heart Shape: If your face is wider at the top and thins out towards your chin then you will want to select earrings that are narrow at the top and wider at the bottom. Basically the opposite of your bone structure. You can chose teardrops, chandelier style and most of all styles that have intricate detailing or studs towards the bottom of the earrings. This will help to balance out your facial structure.
Rectangle: This shape is similar to square except that it is slightly longer. You are one of the few people who can look great in round or wide shaped earrings. Select fun dangling styles that are wide or diamond shaped. You should stay away from long thin earrings as this will only elongate the look of your face.
Remember to have fun with your earring selections. Make bold choices and select styles that will enhance your appearance. The best thing about earrings is that they look great on everyone!
