Choosing the Perfect Statement Earrings

Statement earrings are on trend for this summer, but choosing the perfect pair can be tricky. Not only do you need to take your hair style and face shape into consideration, but the earrings should also show off your own personal sense of style.

Face Shape
To begin with, you need to first identify what your face shape is, whether this may be oval, oblong, or triangle-shaped, and there are a number of guides online to help you with this. Those with a longer face shape will tend to suit lengthy drop or dangling earrings best, as this accentuates the shape of the face, rather than working against it. From shoulder dusters to large hoops, there are so many options available to you. For those with a shorter face shape, short and high statement earrings will be the most flattering, so make sure that they do not fall below the chin. Wider face shapes with prominent cheekbones can get away with just about any style of statement earring, so feel free to experiment with all that is out there.

Hair Style
When it comes to those with long hair, your statement earrings should always be quite long and dramatic, otherwise they will just end up getting lost in your hair. Earrings with some movement, such as tassel earrings, will move with your hair, resulting in a gorgeous, flowing look. Those who have short hair should opt for shorter earrings, such as statement earrings that are just on the ear lobe itself. These can be anything from colorful buttons to large baroque pearl clips, but be sure to also keep your face shape in mind. While it can be hard to merge the styles that would suit both your face shape and hair style, the extra effort that you put into this will be more than worth it, as you will no doubt end up with earrings that really flatter your face.

Personal Style
Everybody’s personal style is unique, and, with so many different options out there for statement earrings, you are bound to be able to find something that you will really fall in love with. For those who like bold and sassy looks, just about every pair of statement earrings are like this, while those who prefer a more demure look can opt for a stiletto style statement earring, or even dramatic studs or styles that feature lace. You should also take into account the outfits that you plan to wear these earrings with, as your accessories should always work with your clothes. When wearing statement earrings, you will want to keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple, so that your earrings can really stand out and speak for themselves. Your other accessories should also be kept to a minimum, otherwise your overall look will just appear too over-the-top and messy.
