Which Earrings Suit Me?

Which Earrings Suit Me?

Earrings are such a great way to instantly add some style to your look, but haven't you ever wondered which earrings suit your face shape best? All face shapes are beautiful and I've put a few celebrities with the same shape face as yours so you can see who you look most like and maybe stalk their jewels a bit.

Stud earrings are the safest, they suit everyone and all face shapes and you can wear them anywhere… Life would be boring if we only wore stud earrings. But they certainly have their place and we have beautiful Pearl Stud earrings that will suit your face shape.

When you're choosing earrings that suit your face shape you can choose to either accentuate the features you love choose something to take attention away from something you'd rather not be the first thing people notice about you.

Faces usually fit into these shapes – square, round, heart shaped, long or oval and earrings styles come in either hoops, studs, chandelier or drop designs.

If you understand which earrings suit your face shape best it’s easy to choose earrings that look fabulous on you. Just remember though, these suggestions certainly don't mean you can't mix it up a bit and wear any earrings that you want, because wearing something you love makes you happy and confident and that always looks great.

When you wear earrings with horizontal lines - like chandelier style earrings - your face will appear wider as the eye is drawn from side to side. This accentuates the width of your face, and on the other hand, wearing drop earrings with a vertical design can elongate your face as it draws eye upwards.

Square Face

Characteristics - Your forehead, cheeks and jawline will be similar width.

Hoops are your friend, they will look wonderful on you and drops will make your face appear a little longer and look amazing. Earrings with rounded shapes, like teardrops or narrow chandeliers will help give a softer appearance to your face. Desideratehave lot's of gorgeous styles in hoop earrings that suit your face shape.

    Hi Sharyn, that gave me a good giggle about your dangly earrings looking like price tags on your glasses. I’d recommend stud earrings or hoops for you.

    After years of coveting the statement necklace paired with diamond studs I feel like changing things up, losing the necklace for a statement (stud) earring.
    I’m in my 50s and also embrace my eyewear, I’ve been wearing specs since I was 9. I personally really struggle with dangly earrings as I can’t help feeling they are competing with my specs and that they look like price tags dangling from the arms of my specs. Anyone else feel the same?

    Now that makes sense, turns out my favorite ever earrings (from you) are perfect for my long face. Thanks Roxi.

  • Tanya

    That’s really good to know, thanks, I’ll have to buy more now.

  • Alanna
