Choose the perfect style of earring based on the shape of ‘her’ face. In addition, if you can…try and choose earrings that are opposite to her facial features.
Oval Shaped Face
Women with oval shaped faces can wear almost every style of earring. That is to say, dangle earrings have been dubbed a go-to here…along with everything else!
Round faces are exactly as they sound: the widest point is across the cheekbones! Experts say women with round shaped faces look best in long angular styles. Dangle and teardrop styles are also great choices as they help to elongate.
Heart Shaped Faces
Is her forehead wider than her cheeks? Earrings with elongated lines and curves tend to be the most flattering to heart shaped faces. The elongated curves of teardrop earrings help to balance out the face and draw attention to the eyes, cheekbones and jaw line.
Square shaped faces do not narrow much from the cheekbone to the forehead, nor from the cheekbone to the jaw line. Elongated, dangling and hoop earrings are most flattering for square shaped faces. Earrings with rounded designs will soften the cheekbones and the jaw line.
Narrow (or rectangular shaped) faces have the same general shape as the square face but are more elongated. Long dangle earrings tend to minimize the length of very narrow faces. For example, dangle earrings with elongated curves will accentuate the cheekbones and add softness.
One Face Fits All
Not sure about an exact face shape or want a pair of earrings for all occasions? Diamond studs are the way to go. The sparkle and shine of simple diamond earrings make them an instant eye-catcher. Furthermore, they will take you from casual wear on the weekends to your fanciest black tie event effortlessly.
Lastly, earrings should be fun and make a statement! Experiment a bit and see what earring designs work best. Earrings can be a fun and flattering way to enhance a wardrobe as well as an appearance. For many women, earrings are the staple piece of jewelry they never leave home without.
