When buying jewelry, you’ll want to choose designs that will compliment your wardrobe. If you choose correctly, you will have selected designs that will draw attention to your best features. So what guidelines are available to help you select the most flattering earring designs?
The main factor to consider when choosing earrings is your face shape. Face shape is important when selecting earrings. Face shapes are generally grouped as: heart, oval, rectangle, round, and square.
People with an oval face shape can wear any style earring while others should look for styles that contrast their face shape. For example, square or long shapes earring designs will compliment a round face. Hoops or button styles would only emphasize the shape of a round face.
A long, rectangular face should avoid long, dangling designs and choose smaller studs instead. Square faces are complimented by the softness of round or hoop styles. Heart shaped faces are complimented with triangular shapes with a wide base that contrasts a narrow chin.
