Would you please consider doing a posts to help with the selection of earrings? I’d like to see information on how to select the best sizes and shapes for my face and hairstyle, as well as what style earrings look good with different outfits; i.e. casual, dressy, sporty. Any other dos and don’ts would be appreciated as well.
When choosing earrings you will want to consider
- Your personality
- Your face shape
- Your hairstyle
- Your style
Earring Selection Tips
- Longer hair needs a larger earring for them to be noticed if it’s worn down
- Long hair tied up can wear either smaller or larger earrings
- Shorter hair means you can wear either longer or shorter earrings.
- Larger facial features need bigger earrings
- Smaller faces and facial features are best with smaller earrings
- Short necks need earrings that don’t dangle past the bottom of the jaw
- Long necks can wear shoulder dusters
- Wear glasses all the time? You may want to wear slightly smaller earrings if you have a smaller face or features so you don’t look overly cluttered around your face.
Think about balancing your face shape with your earrings
- Longer face, wider earrings.
- Shorter face, longer more narrow earrings.
