How Do I Choose an Earring for My Face Shape?

If you have a round face, you should choose earrings that accentuate the shape of your face. Pear-shaped faces are characterized by a round jaw and full cheekbones. Long, dangling earrings will frame your features. If you prefer a smaller earring, you can wear a stud on the top of your earlobe.

Hoop Earrings

When you choose hoop earrings, it is important to consider your face shape. Certain earring sizes will look better on certain faces, and others will not. The width of the hoop will also determine how it looks on your face. Most hoops are one to four millimeters wide, but they can be thicker or thinner. In addition, you should consider what type of dress you are wearing.

If your face shape is a rectangle, you'll want to choose earrings with a similar width. You'll want to avoid asymmetrical styles, as these will emphasize the length of your face. Large earrings can elongate your face, while smaller ones will make it look smaller.

If you have a round face, you may want to choose earrings with rounded edges. The rounded edges of an earring will help soften the angular edges. You can also choose earrings with lots of volume, including short dangles or pearls.

If you have a square face, you might want to avoid square-shaped earrings. Although square-shaped faces look similar to round-shaped faces, they tend to be wider in the forehead and jawline. Because of this, wearing square-shaped earrings will make your face look too angular. Luckily, you can find plenty of hoop earrings in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. You can even choose a pair of oversized hoop earrings to show off your pretty lobes.

If you have a round face, it's important to find the right style for your shape. For example, a triangle-shaped earring will look best on a round face.
