Big Earrings – Tips for Wearing Big Earrings
|Big earrings are found in almost every woman’s personal jewelry box.They can be as simple as a single straight forward hoop. They can be complex and contain multiple little elements. They can be made of gold or silver and they can also be made out of other materials such as rubber or feather. They can be colorful or monochromatic. They may be especially huge or long… In short they can take many shapes and forms.|
But how exactly can you match your big earrings to your unique personality and looks? Let’s explore few key elements on the next sections.
Big earrings and different haircuts
Women with long, flowing hair typically embrace big earrings. A good proportion between your hair and the earrings will provide you with a natural look and convey good taste. A good thumb-rule is to have your hair meet the shoulder line or exceed it when wearing big earrings. Note that flowing hair tends to hide smaller earrings, and therefore large earrings will stand out much better and lend you a glamorous touch. Both curly and straight hair is perfectly fine. You can choose the fan-straightened looks for the more classic appearance or alternatively go with an afro-style haircut for a fantastic impression. All depends on your hairstyle and personal preferences.
Those of you with a shorter haircut: fear not! Big earrings can also work well for you, but in this case you are likely to draw tons of attention. This is great if you have more of an extrovert personality.
Big earrings and facial shapes
Let’s take for example large hoop earrings. One important consideration when matching large hoop earrings is your facial shape. A good match can have a wonderful impact on the overall looks, whereas a poor match can have a significant negative effect. In general, with big earrings as with other accessories, we always seek harmony and balance. Therefore women with a thin, longer face should favor large, wide hoops that will extend the contour of the face. In contrast, those of you with wider facial bone structure or with round cheeks may want to go with large and lengthy hoops. Those will lend your face a slightly longer shape.
One other common facial shape is the pointy, sharp one. You have this structure if you can identify a clear triangle-like shape across your ears and chin. Those of you who have this facial shape may want to choose hoops that resemble a water drop shape. The harmony and balance principle applies here just as before: the drop shape negates the triangle face, and the overall resulting impression is balanced and pleasing the eye.
Big earrings and your dress
Now that we’ve matched the haircut and facial shape, let’s move on to discuss big earrings and clothing. Once again we’d like to repeat the recurring theme: we want to achieve harmony in our looks. Harmony will provide us a light and noticeable appearance. It will also create the impression we achieved this elegant appearance naturally, without much effort.
Let’s stick with our big hoop earrings example. For a casual, day-to-day looks for the office or just your daily routine, you can combine classic tailored collar shirts. Alternatively you can use shirts with a ‘V’ or round neckline. You wouldn’t’ want to wear shirts with lots of cloth or lots of applications around the neckline in order to avoid clutter together with the large hoops. For a bohemian looks you can also combine a soft, not too large scarf.
For the evening hours and when going out, you can choose a beautiful strapless dress or one with a cleavage. Wearing your long hoop earrings together with such dress guarantees an exquisite looks.
Big Earrings and Other Jewelry
One you are wearing big earrings you’re already pretty much set when it comes to jewelry. You can add minimal touches but don’t overdo! If you’d like to wear a necklace it’s best to use a delicate one, and of course avoid large pendants to refrain from clutter around the neckline. You can also combine the big earrings with a bracelet. Choose a delicate one during daytime and one with more presence during the evening. Alternatively you wear a ring on one of the hands. We’ll end this passage with a very relevant quote by legendary Coco Chanel. She once said: “before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.”
