Visitors: 264

How do you add just the right earrings without going overboard or feeling slightly understated? Here are some keys to help you accesorize your lobes in just the right way. This article will give you the perfect keys to seek out the most fashionable accessories for your own face shape!

  • The Oval Face: When shopping for jewelry look for any round shapes. Button and hoop earrings look great on an oval face, and triangular shapes are especially flattering. Dangling earrings can be very elegant, but make sure that they aren't close to or longer than your chin when looking in the mirror. Key: Look for earrings that taper down from top to bottom. This gives the illusion of a wider face than you actually have.

  • The Round Face: You should be looking for square, oblong, and rectangle shapes. Long earrings work for this face shape really great because they the eye down elongated your facial features. Key: Look for long and lean earrings

  • The Rectangular or Oblong Face: Because the rectangular face has more length than width, this face shape can use jewelry to give the illusion that it is a little bit shorter and wider. The width of the face at the forehead is the same as the chin, so earrings that are short and wide will easily give you that effect. You lobes will be happy with lighter weight earrings that are more round than long. Key: Short Round hoops and short chandelier designs are your best bet.

  • The Heart-Shaped Face: Heart shaped faces usually have a wider forehead, making the face seem short and petite. Look for earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top. Key: Look for chandelier earrings or dangling earrings that seem to form a triangle or upside down heart shape.
