Consider your face shape

We’re all for wearing what you love, but certain statement earrings can complement different face shapes. Try out different styles and designs and see how they can differ. As a general rule, rounder faces tend to look great wearing long and angler designs which help to elongate their features, rectangular faces are balanced out with hoop earrings or more rounded designs, heart-shaped faces suit more chandelier styles and oval faces, well… just about anything looks good on you! 

Less is more

The golden rule for statement earrings is to let them be centre stage. We want them to be the focal point of the outfit and get the attention they deserve. Therefore, tone down the rest of the outfit and don’t add any other statement jewellery pieces to avoid an overwhelming look. Don’t worry, not all jewellery is off the cards. Pair your statement earrings with more delicate rings and a simple bracelet to create a chic look. 

Balance with your necklace

To create an elevated and balanced look, it’s essential to consider the neckline of your outfit when choosing statement earrings. If you're wearing a high-necked or collared top, opt for shorter or smaller statement earrings that won't compete for attention. For plunging necklines or strapless dresses, longer or more elaborate earrings can add drama and draw the eye upwards. Experiment with different combinations to strike the perfect balance.

Consider an earring stack

Stacking your earrings is a clever way to create an earring statement. If you have multiple ear piercings, play with earring studs, hoops and drop earrings to create a unique and effortless statement, a.k.a the ultimate earring party. 

Pay attention to your hairstyle

Hairstyles can play a big role in showcasing statement earrings and letting them shine. For updos or sleek hairstyles, consider longer or more intricate earrings that can be seen from all angles. For loose or voluminous hairstyles, shorter or chunkier statement earrings can create a captivating contrast. Additionally, consider hair colour and texture when choosing earrings. Gold earrings can pop against dark hair, whilst silver or pearl earrings can complement lighter hair tones.

Dress them up or down

The beauty of statement earrings lies in their versatility. Effortlessly elevate a casual outfit with a statement hoop or add a touch of glam to an evening look with a dangly statement earring. You’ll be amazed at how hard a statement earring can work when part of your collection.

Wear them with confidence

Remember that the most important accessory you can wear with statement earrings is confidence. Embrace your unique style, experiment with different designs, trust your instincts and ultimately wear what you love. Whether that’s bold sculptural shapes or intricate details, wear statement earrings with pride and let your personality shine through. When you exude confidence, your jewellery choices only enhance your natural beauty.
