The first thing to consider is when do you intend to wear them. This may seem like a very basic thing, but if you are looking for everyday earrings and end up buying extravagant earrings you’ll never wear, your shopping efforts will have been wasted. Go browsing online or head to the jewellery store with what you want in mind.
A good idea is to go online and print off images of earrings you like. That way you can bring it with you to show the jeweller rather than describing to them what you are looking for, which can often be difficult.
What is your style
You must always consider your own personal style. Think about the clothes you have, the colours you wear and what occasions will you want to wear them to. Will they match the outfit you will want to wear them with?
Your other jewellery
A good idea is to look at the jewellery you already have. Think about what bracelets, necklaces or rings you will want to wear with the earrings. Or do you want to buy a pair of earrings that are standout and need to be worn without any other jewellery?
Consider your face shape
Face shape is very important in choosing the right earrings to suit you. If you have a round face, you may want to opt for drop earrings. They will elongate your face. If you have a square shaped face, studs are best suited. For those that have a long face, hoops look great and for oval shaped faces short drop earrings look best.
Also think about the colours that look best and pick up your eye colour and flatter your skin tone. There are many earring styles that incorporate different coloured gemstones which can instantly brighten you look, especially if the rest of your outfit is dark.If you wear diamond rings you may want to consider matching the colour of the diamonds to your earrings.
How will they go with your hairstyle
Your hairstyle also affects the type of earrings that are right for you. Depending on the look you want to go for, you may want earrings that are large and full of embellishments if you have long hair and find your earrings get hidden.
For people with short hair and have their earlobes exposed, you can wear any style of earring from studs to long drop earrings as they will always be visible.
Choosing the right pair of earrings can be difficult if you don’t know what to look for. I hope our tips have helped you decide on the best style of earrings to suit you and your personal style.
