Wearing the right earrings for your face

There are six different face shapes: inverted triangle, oval, round, heart, long and square. Here, we are going to look at the types of earrings that best suit these face shapes. That way, you can make the right call when you’re out purchasing earrings that best suit you.

Inverted Triangle shape: Those with inverted triangle shape faces tend to have a wider chin and a narrower chin. You, therefore, what your earring to take the focus away from your forehead and more on your chin. The perfect way to draw people’s eyes to that area is wearing teardrop earrings or chandelier earrings. Overall, longer earrings work best.

Oval face: Those with oval faces can wear almost any shape and type of earrings they like; you can consider them the lucky group of people. If you want to draw eyes to your cheekbones, then even simple studs do a perfect job in that.

Round face: those with round faces means that the fullest part of their face is the cheekbone, and they don’t have an ultra-defined chin. For that reason, you want to wear earrings that elongate your face and not emphasize the roundness. That means getting earrings that dangle instead of circular earrings of any kind. Those only end up highlighting the roundness of your face.

Heart-shaped face: for those with heart-shaped faces tend to have a sharper chin and a broader forehead. To balance it out, you should also opt for teardrop or chandelier earrings. Additionally, opt for those that for a broader base as they tend to make the chin’s features less exaggerated.

Long face: those with long faces means that the overall width of their faces is narrow. For that reason, you want earrings that make your face look wider. That means wearing studs and other earrings that don’t fall far from the earlobes. The best kind of earrings to also go for are round ones.

Square face: if you do have a square face, your forehead and jawline are similar widths. You, therefore, want to opt for earrings that smoothen out your face to make it look oval. The best way to achieve that is round-edge earrings that of medium to long length. You want to stay away from anything square or similar as it only lays more emphasis on the squareness of your face.



No matter your face shape, you also want to go for suggested earrings that suit the occasion, lifestyle, and personality as well. They should be an extension of your self-expression, but also something that complements and completes your outfit.
