How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Earrings

Regardless of the occasion, the right pair of earrings can often make or break your overall ensemble. The proximity of earrings to your eyes and the way they frame your face often make them the first part of your outfit that people will notice. Because of this, it's important to be thoughtful with your styling. Whether you're opting for a classic pair of women's pearl earrings, an eye-catching moment with a pair of dangly chandelier pieces, or a simple set of sterling silver studs, make sure to check out these tips to help choose the perfect earrings to match your look.  

What’s the Occasion?

While it may seem obvious, one of the most important parts of choosing the right piece of jewelry is making sure you're thoughtful of the occasion and what the best type of aesthetic to match is. If you're dressing more formally for an occasion such as a wedding or a cocktail party, make sure your earrings are contributing to the overall classy look rather than accidentally turning it into a more casual piece. While a dangly set of feather boho earrings can be super cute in other outfits, they probably aren't the best choice for cocktail attire and would be much more suited to go with a summer dress or romper at a barbecue party.

What’s the Vibe?

It's also important to consider not just where you're going, but what type of attitude you want to put forward with your outfit. If you're looking to be a badass femme fatale in all black, then something bold and simple like some uniquely shaped sterling silver hoops might be just the ticket. Or, if you're looking to present a more flowy boho-chic attitude, then some colorful beaded earrings might be the perfect fit to project that vibe.

What’s Your Hair Up To?

Apart from your outfit, the next most important thing to consider with your earrings is how you want to style your hair. If you've got long hair and are planning on letting it flow free, then wearing intricate dangly earrings doesn't make much sense, as no one will be able to see all your style - stud earrings or ear cuffs might be the way to go in this case. However, if you're wearing your hair partially or fully back, then it's the perfect time to bring out those drop or dangling earrings from your collection.
