Have you ever noticed jewellery's intense ability to change your look? Truly, it is incredible how the perfect piece can take you from being a wall flower to the absolute centre of attention – it's all about that extra sparkle!
But there's one accessory in particular that can really alter your look – your earrings! This small accoutrement dresses up a look, taking it from okay to standout – if you know the right earring to accessorise with, that is. Because when it comes down to it, there is a right and a wrong time to wear earrings – specifically studs and dangle earrings. But don't fret! We're here to help perfect your outfit, from ear to toe.
Here are the three things you need to take into consideration when you're deciding between dangle and stud earrings.
1. Consider your outfit
It might be a bit harder to style your outfit around your earrings, so start with your clothes, then work your way to accessories. Once you're dressed you have to ask yourself what kind of statement you're trying to make. Stud earrings, such as pearls, give off a conservative yet sophisticated vibe whereas dangles will add a little bit of movement and excitement to your look. When you're wearing something like a low cut dress, dangle earrings can distract the eye of onlookers by giving them too much too look at.
2.How are you doing your hair?
Of course, a big part of your look is the hairstyle itself. When you wear your hair down, studs are the better option simply because they're likely going to be fairly concealed anyway. If you're rocking a neat updo, you can afford to add a little bit of extra flair to your ears with dangles or hoops. However, a simple updo also means that you want attention drawn to your outfit – here you'll want to consider our outfit rule from above and keep the attention on your clothes by opting for studs.
3. Mind the activity
Don't forget, earrings have a time and place. If you're going to an event which requires a lot of moving around, you'll probably want to go with studs. But, if all you have to do is strut the red carpet (hey, a girl can dream right?), then you can pull of more exciting earrings.
