Earrings- the L O N G and short of it

I've noticed that sometimes a woman will pick up a pair of earrings, hold them up against her face and they just don't look right. It can be frustrating. Not as frustrating as finding the perfect pair of jeans....but frustrating none the less. The shape of your face will determine what kind of earrings look good on you. Why? Because earrings highlight your face. So what's the right style for YOUR face?

Oval- if this is your shape then you look best in earrings that widen and balance the face. Stay away from super long looks that weigh the face down. Gravitate towards hoops, studs, long ovals and round shapes.

Round- if this is your shape then you look best in earrings that create balance. Stay away from tiny studs and button earrings. You look best in angular shapes, wide dangling earrings and long narrow earrings that will draw one's eyes downward.

Triangular - if this is your shape then you look best in small circular earrings or long dangly ones. Stay away from earrings that come to a point, look for curves that will soften the angles of your face.

Heart- if this is your shape then you want balance at your cheekbones. Stay away from earrings that come to a point or mimic the shape of your face. Gravitate towards large earrings, a dangle with a large object at the bottom or oval shaped pairs. Dangling earrings that form a triangle are flattering for this shape face.

Rectangular- if this is your shape then you want to soften your angles. Stay away from squares and rectangles opting instead for round. Hoops and medium to long styles will look best on you.

With so many choices out there, it's easy to find a pair that you love and that flatter your face. Let's take a peek at what some of the team members have available....

I love this information, but I've never been able to figure out what shape my face is. When I was chubby I always assumed it was round and I'm still chubby, inside. But I'm pretty sure my face isn't round. Just don't know. The other issue is my glasses, I can't seem to like nice earrings with glasses. So I just don't know what to wear.

Great information and thanks for featuring a pair of my earrings!

Great, useful information! I didn't think I could wear long dangly earrings for years, and on a whim tried them - they looked great! I think we sometimes get scared to try things that we haven't tried before, even if they may suit us.

Thanks for featuring one of my pairs too!

That was so informative. I only wear studs when I wear earrings because I don't know what to wear and now I can experiement.

This is great information. It's something to keep in mind for craft fairs and such. You might be able to save a sale by helping your customer find the earrings that look fantastic on her.
