There is no doubt about it that the right accessories can really make or break any outfit. Even something as small as the earrings can make all the difference. So, in this article, we are going to look at ways that you can pick earrings to suit every occasion. This advice is fairly simple, but it can still prove to be extremely useful when you are struggling to finish off your perfect outfit.
Consider the event
First of all, the event you are going to has a significant impact on the style of your outfit at the earrings you choose to accompany it. If it is a formal event, you will probably want something classic and elegant. So, you could go for some small hoops or pearl earrings which have a timeless appeal. If you are choosing earrings for work, you probably want to go for something as small and simple as possible like some studs. It is when you are going out for a night on the town that you can get more creative and daring.
Coordinate with your outfit
The next thing that you should think about is coordinating your earrings with your outfit. Clashing colours look immediately out of place so this is something you should avoid. When you have decided on an outfit, choose one of the minor colours and try highlighting that shade by choosing earrings in that colour. If you go for solid coloured clothing, you could go for a complementing shade that harmonises with it. The easy choice is to match your earrings with the most prominent colour of your outfit but this can end up making you look too much of one shade.
Match your face shape
Just like when you are choosing sunglasses, your face shape makes a difference to your choice of earrings. A general rule of thumb is that you don’t want to choose earrings that directly match your face shape. For example, if you have a naturally longer face, you should avoid dangling earrings as this can end up not flattering your natural features. On the other hand, they will probably work if you have a round face shape.
Try before you buy
Earrings are one of those things that are best tried on before you buy them as every individual style looks different on each person. This is especially true if you are planning to spend a significant amount of money on them. As a general rule of thumb, you should avoid bright plastics and clip-on styles as these usually don’t look great. Try experimenting with different styles and building up your collection over time so you always have a range of options for your different outfit choices.
Use these points as a general guide when you are choosing earrings, and you are much more likely to select ones that are right for the occasion, match with your outfit, suit your face shape and look great on you as an individual.
