Have you ever compulsively shopped for earrings, and then never wore them a second time? We won’t judge because we’ve done it too… too many times to count! While earrings are a great way to perk up your outfit and get you ready for any occasion in a jiffy, the mistake we all make is picking out the wrong ones. Well, we’re about to change that forever with this guide to the trendiest earring styles that suit your face shape. Yes, oval, round, square or heart-shaped, you bound to find the right earrings here.
If you have fuller cheeks and a circular face, opt for long drop kundan earrings or danglers, as they will make your face look slimmer. Stay away from chunky circular earrings, hoops and button studs that only highlight the roundness of your face. You also need to steer clear of drop earrings that have a dangling round disc.
Here are our top earring picks for the round face:
Long and narrow face
If you have a long, thin face, pick kundan earrings that emphasise the width of your face. Round stud earrings, medium to large-sized hoops and short danglers will help highlight the width of your face.
Here are our top earring picks for the long and narrow face:
If you have a face where the width of your forehead, cheeks and jawline are similar, you have a square face. The trick is to pick a pair of earrings that will soften the sharp edges of your face. Go for earrings that are medium to long in length and have rounded edges. Oval shapes, circular earrings and hoops work well too. P.S. No matter what, don’t fall for square studs.
Here are our top earring picks for the square face:
If you have a forehead that is wider than your cheeks, and your face narrows toward your chin, you have a heart-shaped face. Strike a balance by drawing attention to the lower part of your face. Go for chandeliers and tear-drop earrings as they complement a heart-shaped face well. Don’t go for inverted triangle-shaped earrings, as these will completely throw off the balance.
Here are our top earring picks for the heart-shaped face:
If your forehead is not too wide, and your face narrows down towards the chin, do the happy dance, girls. You are blessed with an oval-shaped face that can pull off any earring style. Go crazy with terracotta earrings, studs, danglers, drops, anything you can get your hands on! However, studs or triangular earrings will complement your lovely cheekbones best.
