There is always a way to compliment an outfit and a face shape, and though my usual response is ‘Wear what you love!’ I have had a few questions if certain earrings will suit a person. So I am going to give a little advice, and let it be known that this is a guideline, my real belief in all of this is wear what you love and what makes you feel good. Now I have got that out of the way let’s get started.
Heart Shaped – A heart shaped face is when your forehead is wider than your cheeks and the lower half of your face narrows like like a heart. This means you have a lot of lovely space for earrings to play in. This means lucky you, you can pull off fantastic wide and dangley chandelier earrings. Earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top will give your face more balance and of course just look fantastic, because chandelier earrings are going to make you feel amazing when you can feel them swishing beside your neck and are sure to catch peoples eyes when you wear them.
Square – Weird how I feel the need to explain these shapes, if your chin is as wide as your forehead you have a square face. You will completely rock a pair of medium to long earrings with soft curves. Ovals are a great shape for this. Also you should be able to put on a pair of hoop earrings and head out to take on the world feeling a million dollars with such a simple pair of earrings, knowing that they suit you down to the ground.
Round – If your face is circular, meaning your face is widest at the cheekbones and your chin does not taper then you have a round face. This means head to your jewellery box and put out those long, dangling and dramatic earrings. Put on a pair of tassel earrings and bring out your fashionable side, or get sophisticated with a pair of simple, long chain earrings. Long earrings are so versatile and you will look fabulous in them for all occasions.
Long and narrow – As with the round face we are going to reverse things here. You can make a simple pair of studs turn an outfit from great to amazing, and hoops of all sizes are going to look great on you. Not only that but a simple pair of short dangles will look wonderful on you too. Basically anything not to long and with a little bit of shape to them will be perfect when you put them on.
Oval – You are going to be able to rock any of the styles above, but you know what will really shine on you? Triangles! They will emphasize your cheekbones, but it will also allow you to play a bit with art deco style.
Pick out earrings that you love, that will suit your personality, jewellery is a personal choice and it is a great way to express yourself. Pick out earrings to suit your occasion, out for the evening with a fabulous up do, now is the time to rock those dangles. Out on the beach, or heading out in a summer dress, bring out your inner boho.
Be you, wear what you love and remember, you can make those earrings work.
