5 Common Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing And Wearing Earrings

Posted on 08 October 2019

Earrings are simply a wonderful accessory. Of course, I may be biased, but I think they are the most important accessory for any woman to have in her wardrobe. They can jazz up an outfit, re-energise you after a long day at work and make you feel simply fabulous. It is important, however, to avoid a few mistakes that I am sure we have all been guilty of at one time or another.

1. Wearing the wrong earrings for your face shape

Earrings can accentuate different parts of your face, making it appear longer, rounder, wider, squarer or leaner. So, it is a good idea to find out what style of earrings is most complimentary to your face shape. Ideally, you want to select earrings that enhance your features rather than detract from them. For example, if you have a round face you might want to consider stylish drop earrings that will make your face appear longer and slimmer, whereas you would want to avoid large circular earrings which tend to draw the eyes across the face. Find out what your face type is and what suits you best. If you are unsure, please send us an email as we are always delighted to assist.

2. Not matching the right earrings to your outfit

Matching what you are wearing with your earrings might sound obvious, but many women still make the error of not wearing the right earrings for their outfit. It is a good idea to understand the look you are trying to achieve and to select earrings accordingly.

3. Matching earrings only to your dress and not to your accessories

You need to make sure that your earrings match your accessories as well as your outfit. Earrings with strong colours and styles might seem like a fabulous idea against your classic black dress, but they might create an aura of confusion if they are matched with a different coloured belt, handbag or shoes. Have a look at your outfit as a whole and it will be easier to pick out the perfect pair!

4. Not wearing the right earrings for the right occasion

It is important to ascertain if your earrings are appropriate for the occasion. Your stylish and sophisticated gala earrings may well be perfect for a celebratory Friday night drink but they might seem slightly over the top for a business meeting or a mid-morning coffee catch up with the girls. The beauty of earrings is that the right pair can take you from one occasion to the other. This is why it is a good idea to understand which of your earrings compliment different occasions.

5. Following fashion trends without ensuring they suit your style

Following fashion trends without considering whether they suit your style is a common mistake. There is something simply enticing about seeing a new trend emerge. Celebrities much too often make it look fabulous and impossible to resist. But remember, some trends can come and go very quickly, so do a quick style check before you take the plunge.

Earrings are the perfect way to put a signature on your personal style. They can enhance a beautiful outfit or be a statement piece all on their own. By simply avoiding the above common mistakes, you can ensure that your earrings become much-loved and well-worn accessories.
